Avid has taken a step closer to modernity in terms of design and function with its latest rollout of features for Media Composer. With its new "live timeline," users can hit play on a clip and go and do other tasks while the playhead keeps playing. The software can now handle 4 real-time UHD streams up to 8K, high-res titling, as well as group updating, which means users can add a camera to a multi-cam group even after the group has been made.

The updated version of Media Composer is set to be released later this year.
