Reprinted from a 1 Beyond press release:
1 Beyond, Inc., a leading provider of digital video editing and compositing systems, today announced the immediate availability of the industry’s first and only mobile version of Avid Xpress Studio, the all-in-one professional production suite. The new system will be shown for the fist time at the Government Video Technology Expo in Washington DC, on Booth # 1114, Oct 6-7.
Designed for DV and SD professionals who are on the move, 1 Beyond’s mobile unit with Xpress Studio includes integrated video editing, audio production, 3-D animation, compositing and titling, and DVD authoring software products combined with professional video and audio production hardware.
Avid Xpress Studio requires two high speed independent computer busses and therefore laptops, even the 1 Beyond High Performance DV Pro laptops which support Avid’s Mojo, will not support it. This problem is solved with the 1 Beyond Mobile Unit while also adding the ultimate, dual Xeon power. All of the applications in the Avid Xpress Studio system interoperate seamlessly together on the1 Beyond Mobile Unit, empowering Avid content creators to work across multiple media disciplines in a single production environment, wherever they might be.
The base configuration featuring dual 3.06 GHz Xeon Processors with 2 GBs of memory, 5 removable raided hard drives with up to 1.25 TBs and a Pioneer CD/DVD burner / player, the 1 Beyond mobile unit is the industry’s only portable system powerful enough to handle the requirements of Avid Xpress Studio.
The 1 Beyond Mobile Unit with Avid Xpress Studio features Avid Xpress Pro, Avid Pro Tools LE. Avid 3D. Avid FX. And Avid DVD by Sonic. The complete system is available in two versions combining these five powerful software applications with different levels of professional hardware:
