August 17, 2021
Avid has announced that post-production rental provider Christy’s Editorial has selected a multiyear subscription licensing agreement for 500 seats of Media Composer | Enterprise video editing software. With its migration from perpetual software licenses, Christy’s achieves easier and more efficient delivery of the editing tool specified by the majority of its premier client base.
Family owned and operated for more than 50 years, Christy’s has built a legendary reputation for individualized service and technological innovation in support of Hollywood’s film and television creative community. Production companies, studios and post houses depend on Christy’s to configure, maintain and service end-to-end post-production workflows and resources, from video editing bays and near-line storage to long-term content archiving.
On an average day, Christy’s supports hundreds of editors simultaneously working on site in its 60,000 sq. ft. facility and on clients’ production locations, relying on Media Composer® and petabytes of Avid NEXIS® secure shared storage in their workflows.
