Tom Ohanian (part 1) - founding team, Avid Technology
In 1987 AVID technology began life as a company and in the years that followed the entire workflow for editing film was to be changed forever. A core team of people were involved in the development of the AVID, from the initial idea by Bill Warner, to the technical creation of a system which still rules Hollywood today. Tom Ohanian was part of the AVID founding team, those who brought the Media Composer, the FIlm Composer and Avid Multicamera Systems into being.
In part 1 of this interview Tom takes us back to the late-1980's when AVID was unleashed on the world, and the editing environment has never been the same since.
