MAGIX Academic Suite Pro X combines video editing and post-production, graphic and web design, and audio editing in one comprehensive package.

MAGIX Academic Suite Pro X includes three synchronized programs:
The professional video editing program MAGIX Video Pro X4 offers a user-friendly introduction to the world of video with a vast array of editing tools and effects including 3D and 5.1 Surround Sound.
The graphic and web design program Xara Designer Pro 7 is perfect for creating brochures, flyers, homepages, presentations and animation.
The newly designed Academic Edition of MAGIX Samplitude Music Studio MX is now even better for use in the classroom. This program is the all-in-one solution for music production and includes ten instrument plugins called “Vita Solo Instruments” for creating arrangements with an authentic sound.
Sebastian Merk, Senior Product Manager Education at MAGIX: “These days, competence with Internet and video production isn’t only necessary in creative and artistic courses of study. Companies expect graduates and new employees to have some knowledge in these fields. Academic Suite Pro X from MAGIX offers teachers and students an affordable opportunity to meet these expectations and produce professional results.”
Learning how to create and work with new media – The programs and their applications in schools and colleges
The multimedia trio that makes up Academic Suite Pro X can be used well beyond the “classic” media subjects such as art, music and computer science. Videos and audio recordings can also be extremely useful in language courses where students can record and check their speech. The same principle can be applied in physical education by using MAGIX Video Pro X4 to record students while they play sports. The videos can be watched in slow motion to analyze play patterns. Teachers can make videos to help explain course content in more detail and students can use video to make their presentations more interesting and engaging.
The programs are also ideal for extracurricular activities such as college radio and TV or school newspapers. You can even use MAGIX Video Pro X4 to record theater performances so the students participating have something to add to their portfolios. The programs in MAGIX Academic Suite Pro X offer everything an educational institution needs to do its own public relations – from the creation of brochures for programs and events, to promotional videos showing what the school or college has to offer, on through to the school or college website.
