The majority of the Emmy-nominated productions use collaborative workflows that included systems such as Avid's Media Composer, Symphony Nitris, DS Nitris, and Unity MediaNetwork.

"This year, we saw a rise in the number of nominations garnered by cable networks and smaller television networks," says Chas Smith, VP/GM of Avid's video division, "and it is a great validation for us that, whether it's 24 on Fox, Weeds on Showtime, or Great Performances on PBS, content creators across the board choose Avid solutions."

Avid-edited shows were represented in the Outstanding show categories for Comedy Series; Drama Series; Reality Program; Reality-Competition Program; and Variety, Music or Comedy Series as well as the Outstanding Picture Editing categories for a Drama Series; Comedy Series; Miniseries or Movie; Special, and for Nonfiction Programming (both Small Team and Large Team Entries).
