File-Based Universal Mastering


“Universal Mastering” is the term given to a feature set that allows a single program master to be delivered to a variety of formats satisfying both domestic and foreign deliverable requirements. Avid provides Universal Mastering functionality as part of Symphony product, or now with v7 of Media Composer, as a Symphony option. One of the main limitations of the functionality is that it only works with with tape-based outputs using Avid hardware. The PDF document lays out the steps one can use to get a file-based equivalent of the same functionality using Media Composer without the Symphony or the Symphony option.
