Avid (www.avid.com/arrafunding) is offering three new customizable solutions that address the respective skill and grade level of students ranging from elementary school through college: Avid Audio Recording Studio, Avid Film Production Lab, and Avid Television and Video Production Studio.

The solutions are available to educators at up to 85 percent off US MSRP and provide students with access to the media creation tools they will encounter in advanced education programs as well as in professional careers. Any school or institution that qualifies for ARRA funding can apply stimulus resources to invest in the tools.

Audio Recording Studio is a collaborative solution that enables educators to teach audio recording and production workflow techniques such as audio editing, mixing and mastering. Film Production Lab is designed to prepare students aspiring to work on film and episodic television. And Television and Video Production Studio addresses all facets of broadcast television, including script writing, on-camera performance, sound editing and video editing.

Under ARRA guidelines, qualifying schools and institutions can also apply funding for Avid’s complete support services as well as professional development and training programs for certification.
