 Q: When does Avid DS 11 start shipping?

A: June 26, 2012.

 Q: If I purchase Avid DS 11, can I add AJA hardware to this system at a later date to create a full hardware I/O system?

Q: Does Avid DS 11 support Mojo DX, Nitris DX, or Nitris (classic) interfaces?

A:  No. Avid DS 11 works with AJA KONA 3 and Kona 3G I/O hardware.

Q: If I have a Symphony Nitris DX or Media Composer Nitris DX system, can I run Avid DS software only on this system?

A:  This configuration has not been qualified and will not be supported by the Avid DS Support team.

Q: Will I be able to purchase an Avid DS-qualified CPU with the KONA 3G hardware and breakout box from Avid?

A:  Yes. You can either purchase this as part of a new Avid DS System hardware/software bundle or purchase the components individually as an upgrade to your existing setup.

Q: If I have an active Avid DS support contract, am I entitled to a complimentary upgrade to Avid DS 11 software for my Avid DS Assist software?

A: No. However, you can take advantage of the Avid DS Assist to Avid DS software upgrades. 

Q: Can I use Avid DS 11 with any of the Avid (formerly Euphonix) Artist Series controllers?

Q:  Is the AJA KONA LHe still fully supported as an I/O interface in Avid DS 11?

A:  Yes, for monitoring purposes only.

Q: Does the complete Avid DS System still include an Avid DS Assist license with it?

A:  No, but you can purchase the Avid DS software-only option if you need a second system to complement your turnkey system.

Q:  What file-based workflows does Avid DS 11 support?

A:  Avid DS 11—both the software-only version and complete system—supports DPX, R3D, RED EPIC/SCARLET, OPEN EXR, TIFF DCDM, QuickTime, and more. Media Composer 6, included with Avid DS 11, directly supports many more file-based formats through AMA (Avid Media Access), including ARRI ALEXA MXF, RED, AVCHD, ProRes, XDCAM, P2, Canon XF, and more.

Q: If I send an AFE with 16 channels of audio from Media Composer to Avid DS 11, will I be able to use all 16 channels of audio in Avid DS?

A: Yes.

Q: I see that there’s an Avid DS 11 and Sapphire 3 bundle offering. What is Sapphire?
