Avid announces support for the new Apple Mac Pro Workstation for use with the Media Composer family of products. Media Composer and Media Composer with the Symphony Option now support the new Apple Mac Pro Workstation running the Apple Mac OSX 10.9.1 (Mavericks) operating system.
IMPORTANT: External Audio Input device required. The new Apple Mac Pro Workstations do not have an onboard audio input. A “core audio” input device is required for Media Composer to launch. A separate USB or Thunderbolt device with audio input hardware such as an Avid Mbox will be recognized as a “core audio” device by Mac OSX and must be connected. Avid is working to resolve this issue with a software patch which is expected to be released in early Q2 2014.
Contact a Z Systems Account Manager for more details but here is how AVID outlines the System Requirements.
