    Avid Marketing Mixup?

    I was looking at the Avid Web site and it's info about MC 5.5.  Three pics go by.  Something looked odd about pic 2.

    I grabbed a frame.

    What do you see sitting beside the editor on the table top?  And what MC tools are on the screen?

    Interesting.

    So just out of interest I opened the info on the Artist Control page.  Hmmmm ...

    That info is pasted to the left of the photo.

    Now, I will not speculate on anything here.  But I will say that this seems like a bit of a dodgy ad to me.

    To much time on my hands?  Na, just long renders.

    Gee, you'd think for the purposes of a photo that they could have at least shown an editor with a neater physical appearance. Pretty sloppy looking guy, IMO. A nicely dressed woman would have been a far better choice.

    Ah Larry you need to roll with the times - just like Avid ...

    C'mon Avid get with the product and get this panel working with Symphony and MC.

    The picture is down now though so nice GOTCHA.

    haha,

    They found out too, and changed the picture
    don't know if the guy went for a shower... but they sure stole his Artis Color panel...
    Because it doesn't work yet with MC and Symph 5.5

    I noticed this too.

    Another thing that could be a typo is on the page with the picture. The caption under the photo says "Media Composer editorial suite" Now look at the color correction interface on the computer screen. Hmmm.

    Here is the page.

    Great catch, Jef.  I guess thats either a glimpse to the future, or another real screw up by Avid marketing.
