Avid Elite Reseller for Professional Audio | Academia for Education

Academia are excited to announce that we have been appointed as an Avid Elite Reseller for Professional Audio. Avid only award Elite status to resellers who can offer high-end professional services, system integration and technical support.

Thirty years ago, Avid broke new ground by reimagining content creation. Their revolutionary nonlinear editor was the first to digitize video content. It redefined the media industry and is still the gold standard.

The tools and platforms empower more than a million users and thousands of media enterprises to tell powerful stories and build better businesses.
