Avid Support

AJA and Avid® Software

Avid

Welcome to the AJA support page for Avid products. This page will direct you to the latest version of the AJA combined software package that works with Avid Media Composer (including Symphony and NewsCutter options), and ProTools.

AJA's unified Desktop Software package, has been developed to enable powerful integrated video/audio capture, output, editing, and production with 3rdparty applications, including Avid software.

AJA Software Installer

The AJA software package for macOS or Windows, contains firmware for all supported devices, drivers, utilities and AJA’s Avid plugin that supports Media Composer and ProTools out of the box. An important utility that you will want to have open when using Media Composer is AJA Control Panel – since this allows you to set up your signal, reference source, timing and many other crucial aspects of how Media Composer interacts with your AJA or Avid hardware.
