Avid introduces VENUE HD Bundles with new Thunderbolt interface

Avid has announced three new VENUE HD system bundles that pair a VENUE live sound system with the new Pro Tools|HD Native Thunderbolt interface at PLASA 2012.

The D-Show HD Native 64 Bundle, Profile HD Native 64 Bundle, and Mix Rack HD Native 64 Bundle all come with a Pro Tools|HD Native Thunderbolt interface. 

These VENUE HD Bundles are designed to include everything necessary to record up to 64 inputs using Pro Tools HD, to a Thunderbolt-equipped laptop or desktop computer – no additional audio interfaces required. Furthermore, engineers can monitor their recordings via the HD Native Thunderbolt interface’s built-in headphone output, which is designed to provide enough power to drive headphones over the sound of the crowd.

“The new HD Native Thunderbolt interface is the perfect complement to any VENUE system,” said Sheldon Radford, senior product manager at Avid. “It’s rugged yet portable, and the built-in headphone amp is great for confidence-checking live recordings on the fly. Bundling it with VENUE systems provides customers with a simple one-stop-shop for building a live recording and playback system.”

Meanwhile, VENUE HD System Bundles also offer options with Pro Tools| HDX and HD Native PCIe card configurations, offering engineers optimum flexibility in choosing their ideal end-to-end live sound mixing, recording, and playback solution for their needs.
