Avid Technology has adapted the latest versions of its major editing products to handle native Panasonic AVC-Intra files.

Version 3 of Media Composer, Symphony and Newscutter will all now import and edit native AVC-Intra footage from solid-state P2 HD camcorders such as the AJ-HPX3000 or 2000.

The AVC-Intra codec can provide DVCPRO HD quality pictures but requires half the amount of storage.
