Third Annual ACA Vote: The results are in!
Avid has once again given the ACA community the unique opportunity to vote on our future
The future is here and the Avid Customer Association (ACA), the world’s most influential community of industry professionals, is at the forefront of driving innovation. Over the years, the ACA has made significant strides in building a deeper partnership with Avid, so that together we can help solve the industry’s most pressing challenges. Thanks to our diligent customer leadership and tremendous growth to more than 33,000 members, our community’s voice gets more powerful each year.
What we started...
In 2016, the inaugural ACA Vote was a historic milestone with more than 8,000 participants, 4,000 unique organizations, and 100+ countries represented in sharing their priorities on Avid products, solutions, and future focus areas.
In its second year, the vote continued to provide invaluable feedback to Avid—outlining the community's top needs and priorities. The results of previous votes have led to tangible action from Avid, with over 120 requests coming from the ACA Vote delivered on since its inception, and more to come (most requested and implemented ACA features from 2018 listed below). The ACA’s participation and Avid’s delivery are impressive proof points of this unstoppable momentum.
We continued to leverage our impressive growth and the strength of our community to make our collective voice even louder during the Third Annual ACA Vote.
We put you at the controls! What will we create in 2019 and beyond?
The ACA invited its current and new members to seize this unique opportunity and cast their vote. The community’s participation is what drives the innovation of Avid products and creates a better future for our industry.
Voters participated by selecting the product(s) that applied most to them. This process was extremely simplified from years past to ensure that voters where focused ONLY on the products they are most interested in. All of the items listed on this year’s vote represented recent feedback and requests from across our community, (ACA leadership, ACA members, online forums, market data, industry analysis, Avid product teams and more), which were reviewed by ACA leadership.
At the end of their ballot, participants were directed to the Emerging Trends & Technology in Media Ballot, which was underwritten by Devoncroft (Broadcast & Media Technology Market Research, Strategic Consulting, & Analysis). This section included questions about industry trends, projects, budgets, and emerging technologies. The ACA and Devoncroft partnership is yet another example of the impact this community is having. Not only is Avid listening, but so is the rest of the industry!
