Bill Warner - Founder of AVID
In 1987 Bill Warner quit his job at Apollo Computer, Inc. and set up AVID Technology. Within a few short years filmmaking was changed forever.
Bill Warnewr is the man who had the vision, he's the man who made this happen. In this, the first of a five part series, Bill explains the frustration he felt at the linear editing process in a tape-based world and how he, turned this frustration to find a solution to the problem. As a result the world of editing has never been the same. Where once tape-based suites and film cutting rooms dominated, now the electronic non-linear way has become the accepted process.
AVID was the first of the non-linear editors and still domiates high-end broadcast and feature film production.
This is an amazing story told by the man who "made" AVID happen.
