Nexidia and Avid Renew and Expand Relationship
Nexidia and Avid have renewed their strategic partnership that integrates Nexidia’s rich-media search and speech-analytics solutions with the Avid portfolio of digital-content-creation and -management tools. The relationship was first announced at the 2006 NAB Show.
Nexidia and Avid first collaborated to launch the ScriptSync feature, which simplifies script-based editing by automating the process of synchronizing scripts or transcripts with their equivalent media files. It streamlines review and comparison of clips and takes for the final edit.
ScriptSync will continue to be prominent in Avid’s lineup of video-editing products, such as Avid Media Composer and Symphony. But this announcement also marks a major commitment on the part of both companies to further integrate Nexidia’s phonetic-search technology with the Avid product suite.
