Avid MC 7, Interplay w/Nitris DX (DNxHD) & Expert Plus Support is a single license, electronic download of the 64-bit non-linear editing system for Mac or Windows computers, with one Nitris DX hardware unit and one year of Expert Plus support. This version is compatible with available Avid Interplay solutions, allowing it to interface with your existing Interplay system. After purchase, you receive an activation card. The software must be registered with Avid before use, and it can only be registered on one computer at a time. Media Composer 7 allows you to work with most file formats and resolutions, including SD, HD, stereoscopic (3D), and resolutions above HD, using ACE certified editing tools. It also features built-in effects, transitions, and titling tools. With Media Composer 7, you can mix and match different formats, frame rates, and resolutions in the same timeline without rendering. Media Composer 7 features Full 4:4:4 HD RGB support, color correction tools, and ProRes encoding (Mac version only.)
Featuring built-in support for stereoscopic/3D footage, it is a full-fledged stereoscopic editing system. It is also compatible with a wide range of effects plug-ins. It features a multicam editing mode for cutting between 9 cameras simultaneously. For audio support, Media Composer 7 features built-in 7.1 surround sound support and audio mixing of up to 64 audio voices.

It supports available Avid and non-Avid hardware I/O cards and devices and comes bundled with Avid FX (Boris RED), Sorenson Squeeze, and AVID DVD, which allows you to author DVDs.
The Nitris DX performs real-time encoding to DNxHD. It also provides hardware acceleration to your system when handling files encoded as DNxHD, HDV, DVCPro25 and XDCAM EX. This frees up your system's CPU and GPU resources for other tasks including playback and effects rendering. It features SD/HD SDI, SD/HD component, composite, and S-Video I/O connectors. It also features HDMI out for monitoring. It supports ref sync in/out, Longitudinal Timecode (LTC), and Wordclock for digital audio sync. Optional expansion boards allow you to add full frame 3D (stereoscopic) functionality with DNxHD or you can add an optional board for AVC-Intra support.
