Avid's Symphony 6.5 (Academic Pricing) has all of the same features, tools, and workflows as Media Composer, plus advanced and secondary color correction, Boris Continuum Complete, and Universal Mastering tools. Whether you edit movies, TV shows, commercials, or other video, this industry-standard solution provides 64-bit performance, easy-to-use video editing tools, and streamlined HD, file-based, and stereo 3D workflows to complete projects fast.
And now it's even better with new versioning and archive workflows, more open ways of working with third-party software and hardware, and more powerful audio tools for video editors than any other NLE.
And now, when you buy Symphony 6.5, you'll also get an upgrade to Media Composer 7.0 with the Symphony Option - the next generation of the Media Composer family.
