At IBC 2018 today Avid announced the public beta of Avid Link. Designed to replace the App Manger, Avid Link is a free new app that is available for Windows, macOS, iOS and Android, Avid Link has been designed to make it easy to find, message, and collaborate with other creators, promote your work and skills, manage your Avid account, and purchase software, hardware, plug-ins, and other tools to advance your creative capabilities.
What Avid Say Link Will Do
Connect With Like-minded Creators Using Find Talent
Avid Link integrates with the entire Avid Community, making it easy to search for and find other artists, musicians, composers, video editors, producers, mixers, filmmakers, and media professionals to collaborate with and follow. Select “Find Talent” to scope out the profiles of available talent, review their work, invite them to connect, and send messages about how you can work together.
Get Discovered With My Profile
Showcase your work and talent for others to see and hear what you can do. Avid Link gives you a powerful platform to tell your story and promote your work through the My Profile tab. Get discovered and increase your creative opportunities by tagging your profile with your skills, specialties, and expertise, making it easier for others to find and connect with you.
Gain Wisdom In The Lounges
Looking to meet others to get or give advice, help, or feedback? Hang out in the Lounges, which offer a variety of discussion topics for collaboration seekers, areas of interest, tips and tricks, and more. Start or join a conversation, exchange ideas, and contribute to discussions about products, workflows, and the industry—all in real time—on your computer or mobile device.
Shop In The Marketplace
Expand your creative capabilities further by shopping the Marketplace—conveniently accessible right within Avid Link. Whether you need plug-ins, video effects, stock footage (coming soon), a control surface, or other software or hardware to use with Pro Tools, Media Composer, Sibelius, or a third-party audio or video tool, we’ve got you covered—24/7.
Manage Products in My Products
Easily manage, download, install, update, and renew your purchases and plans—and view all of your applications, licenses, plug-ins, and account info—all in one space. Select My Products and get access to the latest installers and documentation—or set up automatic software updates in your preferences (select the Avid logo). You can even view your cloud storage stats and expand your space as needed.
Communicate With Others In Messages
With the ability to message your connections right within Avid Link, it’s easy to stay in touch with others. Share ideas and discuss projects in real time with a group of collaborators. Seek advice and give it by forming mentorships within your network. Or simply reach out and say hey to your friends.
Access Projects Anywhere In My Projects
Easily view, discuss, and manage all Pro Tools projects and collaborations. Invite and add any of your connections to collaborate on your own projects. Accept or decline invitations to collaborate on others’ projects. View what content and changes have been shared. Send messages to your fellow collaborators. And get notified when others have done the same.
Catch The News On Your Home Page
Get informed and inspired with access to the latest industry news, customer stories, blogs, and product info. You can filter your news feed by Audio, Video, Notation, Live Sound, and Broadcast, and see the latest features for your products, discover great tips and tricks, be among the first to hear about new product announcements, and gain workflow insight from creative pros.
Stay In The Loop With Notifications
Avid Link features an OS-level notification system to keep you in touch with all of your creative tools and endeavours. From incoming messages and collaboration invitations, to notifications about projects, expiring products, and renewals, you’ll receive messages and alerts the moment they happen—without having to launch any of your Avid creative tools just to check.
Add Purchases To Your Account With Redeem Product
Got a favourite audio or video reseller? Avid Link enables you to add Avid products purchased from other partners easily to your Avid account. Simply click the top-left Avid logo, select “Redeem Product,” and enter the download code printed on the activation/registration card that came with your product. You’ll then be able to download, install, and manage your new license right from within the app.
