Black and purple background with white squares and purple Avid Ada: the Foundation.

At Avid, we have always immersed ourselves in emerging technologies so that we can provide our customers with the most current, most efficient solutions possible. To help us understand how best to utilize new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), we established an in-house research lab dedicated to bringing innovation forward at an accelerated pace.

The First Tech Visionary

Avid Ada is the foundation on which all of Avid’s AI/ML solutions are builta common underpinning of the technologies which drive these capabilities through the Avid product portfolio. Avid Ada is inspired by the work of Ada Lovelace, a 19th-century pioneer in computing and AI who was largely overlooked for many years. Read about her and how she inspired many women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Discovering New Opportunities

Avid’s Research and Advanced Development Lab (Avid RADLab) is where engineers have established a framework of research and experimentation on which to build AI-enhanced capabilities across a range of our video, audio, and asset management solutions. This innovation brings potential benefits both for Avid and for our customers. Now a tidal wave of possibilities is open and continues to be explored through in-person and virtual events.
