New York (January 12, 2010)–Avid is celebrating its fifth year in the live sound market, marking five years since the launch of the flagship Venue D-Show system in 2005.
To commemorate the occasion, sound professionals who trade in their older analog or digital mixing boards will receive up to a 20% discount on new Venue systems.
Thanks to partnerships with sound providers, including Clair, Sound Image, Firehouse Productions, Solotech, Spectrum Sound, Sweetwater Sound Productions, and Clark Pro Media, among others, Venue systems have been used on popular tours and festivals, and in high-profile clubs and houses of worship. In 2009 alone, the artists, events, and establishments using Venue systems included U2, Paul McCartney, No Doubt, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, Fleetwood Mac, Nickelback, Bridge School Benefit, Outside Lands, Rock in Japan, Knitting Factory and Saddleback Church.
Avid introduced the Venue D-Show system in 2005 with a complete live sound system that offers Pro Tools plug-in effects processing and direct connectivity to Pro Tools recording and playback systems. Since entering the market, Avid has expanded the Venue product line to support an array of live sound applications and environments. The Venue product line now includes the Venue D-Show system, Venue Profile system, Venue Mix Rack system, and Venue SC48. The desks all use a common software platform which allows users to learn the system once and then take their show files and system expertise to work on any other Venue system. One noted feature that was added was the Virtual Soundcheck, which enables users to fine-tune a mix by using prerecorded tracks from a previous show or rehearsal in place of live inputs. Avid also supports the AVnu Alliance and its goal of developing universal AVB (audio/video bridging) networking standards that will offer users seamless audio and video integration to enhance the live event experience.
