Leitch introduces new 2x4 model of award-winning VelocityQ NLE

Leitch has announced the launch of its VelocityQ 2x4, a new lower-cost model of the award-winning VelocityQ multi-stream non-linear editing system.
Like the existing model of VelocityQ (now also known as the VelocityQ 4x4), the VelocityQ 2x4 combines the powerful, flexible and intuitive Velocity software interface with the Quattrus multi-stream real-time hardware, forming a tightly integrated, advanced multi-layer NLE solution that delivers an exceptional combination of real-time power, quality and affordability.
Both models feature guaranteed real-time, full-quality playback of four streams of video - in any combination of compressed or uncompressed - and up to six graphics streams.
The VelocityQ 4x4 features the Q3DX4 quad-channel 3D DVE module, enabling four channels of simultaneous real-time 3D effects, including perspectives, warps and rotations. The new VelocityQ 2x4 model features Q3DX2 dual-channel 3D DVE, providing two simultaneous channels of these effects.
While the VelocityQ 4x4 includes as standard a rack mountable audio/video breakout box, I/O connections to the VelocityQ 2x4 are provided through the included breakout cable, with the breakout box available as an option. Beyond the breakout box and the effects capabilities of the respective DVE modules, the new VelocityQ 2x4 and the existing VelocityQ (4x4) are functionally and technically identical.
"VelocityQ continues to win acclaim from both the industry and customers, and its combination of compressed and uncompressed video quality with guaranteed real-time performance of four video streams, up to six graphics streams and four channels of 3D DVE is still unique at its price point," said Brad Nogar, Leitch vice president and general manager for post production. "We recognize, though, that not all customers require four channels of 3D DVE or a breakout box. With the introduction of the VelocityQ 2x4, we're pleased to offer a VelocityQ model at a lower price point, which makes it accessible to an even wider range of post production professionals."
VelocityQ 2x4 is available as a boardset-and-software bundle for installation into a Windows 2000 or Windows XP workstation, while VelocityQ 4x4 is available as a boardset-and-software bundle or as a fully integrated, ‘ready to run’ turnkey solution. Leitch Quattrus cards and Q3DX4 and Q3DX2 DVE modules are also available to third-party OEM developers for incorporation into their own products and applications.
