A raft of Avid resellers and partners at the show will showcase the new software and hardware, which was launched earlier this month.

BlackMagic Design’s Avid-enabled product range will be on show at Holdan’s stand.

Garland Partners, the UK distributors of LiveU’s market-leading portable video-over-cellular solutions, will debut LiveU’s new LU40i handheld live HD video solution for the online media market.

Meanwhile, Den Lennie has been lined up to demonstrate the Shane Hurlbut ASC Master Cinema Series Rig for the FS100 in its first European outing.

Tektronix will also show its new WFM2200 Compact Video Waveform Monitor for the first time. 

And Steinberg will demonstrate Nuendo, its flagship audio post-production product, which will be working alongside a Yamaha DM1000 console.

The recently released version 5.5 offers over 20 new features including new editing functionality, an updated video engine and improved Quick Controls for extended accessibility and improved compatibility with external software applications.
