The site (available as a standalone site from 2000 to 2002) was the content and community Web site for Avid Technology, Inc. The site was developed as a way for the numerous video/film editors, artists, and media professionals that use Avid equipment to share their knowledge and experiences, and as a platform for Avid's Web-based services (such as Review & Approval™). The community-related features are now part of the Avid Web site.
