    My apologies for almost forgetting this.....

    AVIO runs on a proprietary embedded operating system and provides no
    internet access or file swapping...it is 100% virus and Trojan-horse immune.

    That's really swell

    we get the point. It's pretty clear that you're some kind of Avio dealer and
    you're obviously trying to drum up sales. However blatently commercial posts
    are NOT allowed here so if you continue trying to sell your Avio toys here
    we'll have to email the manufacturer about how your lame promotions are
    turning people AGAINST their products. Why not go the Ebay Store route,
    really, this ng is for professionals.

    "piece of crap" ?? I guess an Avio did terrible things to you when you were a
    little child also! I really wonder if folks like you that are railing so hard
    against this tool have ever even seen one! It is not the hottest, most versital
    editing tool on the planet but it is not even close to being a "piece of crap"
    The Avio is an easy to use, bullet proof, reasonably fast, good quality,
    impossible to hurt, very stable basic editing tool. As mentioned before
    professionals at most all levels have used and many continue to use them every
    day. You may be too advanced or (more likely) not advance enough to find it
    usefull in your corner of the video world, but calling it a "piece of crap"
    only demonstrates your inabilities, not the units.
    A note to Joe the Avio salesman: you ought to back off with the sales pitch for
    a while cuz at this point even those of us that own or use the units are
    getting tired of the rehtoric.

    Just as a side note, you can get an AVIO ST with a 40GB HD at
    www.videoguys.com for $999.95, compared to $1,095 for an ST with a 13GB HD
    at www.djrock.tv

    Incidentally, when you click on the link for more information at
    www.djrock.tv, you get a "page not found" error. In fact, a lot of your
    links don't work.

    You really might want to rethink your marketing strategy here...

    Thanks for the sane post.

    Actually my original intention was to bring the AVIO to the attention of
    persons looking for a bullet proof alternative to using a MAC or PC that
    provides the DV25 and MPEG-2-4:2:2 quality.

    What I discovered is that many so-called video professionals who post in
    these News Groups are not really engaged in video production at all (if
    they were they wouldn't have time to post). It has become clear that these
    under-employed zealots have little knowledge of video engineering and have
    decided to make it their mission in life to block the 'sunshine' of others.
    "Negative people do negative things".

    Nothing I say or do forces you to read my posts or submit a reply. An
    intelligent person would either disregard my submissions or form a
    constructive argument (there have been several such posts). For the most
    part my commentary has been met with replies from complete idiots who have
    no mandate what-so-ever, not just in this forum but in life in general.

    AVIO ROCKS...(of course so does my AVID at 10 times the price)!

    We are required by law to show the NORMAL selling price of the equipment in
    any publication including the web site.

    You can actually purchase an AVIO for up to 30% less from www.djrock.tv. So
    do the math and you will find that comes to 777.00 USD.

    If a person truly wanted an AVIO they would simply email us. The last time
    I checked all the links worked correctly or defaulted to HOME.

    I have no idea what's going on with the AVIO Vs other NLE, but it's a
    question of preference/taste/job.

    Avio has it's audience
    Avid has it's own
    FCP has also its loyals
    Vegas has it's followers
    Premiere also has it's audience
    so as Cinestream, EditDV, MSP, etc.

    Editing is an art. Each artist chooses it's own tools, it's own brushes.

    What the client looks is the final result. If he likes the result it's all
    it counts. He doesn't care if it was edited on an Avio, Avid or Silicon
    Graphics or with a Moviola....

    As for the few that bash the Avio without even seeing it, I think that's a
    bad attitude.

    If I was to hire an editor for my production company tomorrow and 2 editors
    with equal skill show up, one knowing only Avid Symphony and the other Avid
    Symphony AND Avio, this would make my descision much easier as who to hire.
    The person that ALSO knows the Avio would make it in. Not because he knows
    this particular NLE - that I don't use, but because it shows me that he
    knows more, willing to learn and is not a follower. Not being a follower
    means creativity and creativity is all what it counts in this business.

    Having said this, learn as many NLE's as you can - Avio included-, master
    the editing techniques and rest assured that when you apply for that job,
    you will stand from the guy next to you who "only speaks one language" and
    not willing to get out of it's bubble to learn more.

    I first heard Avio in this thread. In the begining I thought that it was a
    typo mistake ferering to Avid. Then I realalised that indeed, there's an
    Avio. My research showed me that Avio has released upgraded models. If
    they did that, it means that there's a demand, which means that they have
    their supporters. This is what it counts. If they have their supporters,
    it means that they're doing something right: Not for my purpose, but for
    their target market. And perhaps, the purspose of their target public would
    not be served adequatly with what I use to edit. Simple as that.
