Avid edit suites
F ineline Media Finance has provided funding to
MAMA Youth Project (MYP) to purchase two Avid
Media Composer Symphony edit suites, as the charity
upgrades its equipment to HD.
Each year MYP recruits and trains 48 disadvantaged
young people aged between 16-25 in a range of core
production skills including research, camera work,
lighting and sound operation, location-fi nding, editing,
and production paperwork. As part of the training
programme participants work together to produce six
episodes of What’s Up, a magazine-style show that has
recently moved from Pick TV (formerly Sky 3) to Sky 1,
demonstrating its high production values.
The Avid Media Composer Symphony systems, including
hardware and monitors, are part of an upgrade to HD
that allows the production to adhere to Sky 1 standards,
and ensures that the trainees gain valuable experience
on the latest equipment.
