Avid introduces Maestro graphics including live sports system
At IBC Avid unveiled a more unified and powerful graphics product line-up that has deeper integration with Avid MediaCentral. The latest Maestro graphics family enables content creators to work faster and more efficiently, and helps them to distinguish their brand to set themselves apart from the competition and build viewer loyalty.
