This is something we have all been interested in for a while. I don't 
think it's going to replace dedicated color correction, but it will make 
adding color treatments to jobs easer. Things will be a lot more 

As far as I know the Avid Xpress does not work with QuickTime, so you 
cannot use it with any hardware boards like ours. It's limited to DV 
only as far as I know, so this is a it of a limitation. You might have 
to look at Final Cut Pro as it works with everything from HD to DV. I am 
not sure if JL Cooper control panel is supported in Final Cut Pro, but 
it must be supported in something, or they would not have made it.

Do you have a link to check the info on the control panel?
