Avid Technology, Inc. has announced the worldwide availability of its Avid Xpress Studio all-in-one production suite. Designed for DV professionals, the Avid Xpress Studio system combines video editing, audio production, 3D animation, compositing, titling, and DVD authoring capabilities with professional video and audio production hardware - all of which interoperate on a single computer. Customers can purchase Avid Xpress Studio through Avid's global reseller channel and the Avid store.

The Avid Xpress Studio system is available in two versions. Each version includes the Avid Xpress Pro, Avid Pro Tools LE, Avid 3D, Avid FX, and Avid DVD by Sonic software applications, and a different hardware configuration:

It is designed to work with both the Avid Xpress Pro and Avid Pro Tools LE applications. Avid Xpress Studio Complete also includes the Avid Mojo Digital Nonlinear Accelerator, which offers simultaneous real-time output of multiple streams of video and 3-D effects to client monitor and tape, the ability to mix uncompressed graphics and animation with DV media in real time, and many more capabilities.
  • Avid Xpress Studio Essentials: For $3,995, this package includes the Digidesign Mbox hardware, a 2-channel USB audio peripheral that integrates audio and MIDI recording, editing, and real-time mixing.

The software and hardware applications included in the Avid Xpress Studio system are also available for individual purchase. Pricing is as follows:
