Avid Media Composer Adrenaline Specifications
Preliminary System Requirements (05/03)
Avid Media Composer Adrenaline includes Media Composer Adrenaline software and Adrenaline DNA hardware. An Avid-qualified system is required. The following list is preliminary as of April 1, 2003 and subject to change:
For all Avid Media Composer Adrenaline systems, the following are required:
Avid Media Composer Adrenaline will also be available in complete system packages that include Media Composer Adrenaline software, Adrenaline DNA hardware, and an HP xw8000 dual 2.8 GHz xeon workstation OR Apple Power Mac dual 1.42 GHz G4 system configured to meet the requirements above.
(1) For full resolution support, Avid Adrenaline hardware requires connection to a FireWire controller that resides on a dedicated PCI bus segment. Other devices, such as external storage and Ethernet controllers, must not reside on the same PCI bus segment as the FireWire controller connected to the Adrenaline hardware. This limitation pertains primarily to PC workstations, as Power Mac G4 systems contain integrated FireWire, which is on its own PCI bus segment. The PC workstations qualified for use with Avid Media Composer Adrenaline meet this dual PCI bus requirement.
(2) Notebook systems may not deliver the performance required to support some resolutions.
