BURLINGTON, Mass., March 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avid® (Nasdaq:AVID), a leading global media technology provider for the creation, distribution and monetization of media assets for global media organizations, enterprise users and individual creative professionals, congratulates its award-winning and nominated customers for their outstanding achievements in sound mixing at the 54th Annual CAS Awards, which took place on February 24 in Los Angeles. Presented by the prestigious Cinema Audio Society, the awards recognized this year's most outstanding film and television sound mixers, all of whom relied on Avid creative tools powered by MediaCentral®, the industry's most open, tightly integrated and efficient platform designed for media.
The CAS Best Sound Mixing award went to Richard King, Gregg Landaker, Gary A. Rizzo, and Mark Weingarten for Dunkirk who relied on the industry standard digital audio workstation software, Avid Pro Tools®, to bring their cinematic soundtracks to life.
Re-recording mixer Julian Slater, who was nominated for Best Motion Picture — Live Action for Baby Driver, used Pro Tools to bring Edgar Wright's high-octane, musically driven film to life. "My workflow demands creativity and flexibility, invariably at the same time," said Slater. "Avid is the only solution to both my editorial and my mixing needs. The soundtrack on Baby Driver could not have been realized any other way."
Other Avid customers also won CAS Awards for their work on Coco, Black Mirror: USS Callister, and Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall.
"It's a true joy to see Avid customers continue to gain peer recognition for bringing their ideas and stories to life," said Avid CEO and President, Jeff Rosica.
