8E Media upgrade to Pinnacle Liquid Edition

8E Media, the Wolverhampton-based multimedia production house, have upgraded to a new Pinnacle Liquid Edition video editing system.
8E Media, which specialise in multimedia communication, digital video and design, are acquiring a Pinnacle Liquid Edition workstation from Nottingham-based Pinnacle Partner Edit Technology Limited.
Mandy Wootton, director of 8E Media, said she decided to buy Liquid Edition after seeing a demonstration by Edit Technology. She said: “We are particularly impressed with the continuous save mode and background rendering function – allowing continuation of editing while rendering sections. In addition to the speed, the stability appears to be excellent. We tried very hard to crash the software and weren’t able to. The interface is very intuitive so we don’t foresee any migration issues for professional users.
“I think that Pinnacle has put a lot of thought into Liquid Edition. Because Liquid Edition is Pinnacle’s own software there is no need to rely on a third party product so it is a lot more responsive and obviously there are no conflict issues.”
An established Pinnacle user, 8E Media already have a Pinnacle DC2000 with the Premiere editing device. Wooton continued: “We have used Pinnacle products for many years with excellent results and are looking forward to exploring Liquid Edition further.”
Liquid Edition is the first professional non-linear video editing application to utilise both the CPU and GPU to provide more than 1,000 real-time 2D and true 3D effects, chroma and luma keys, and more with up to 10 real-time streams. Other professional features include Pinnacle’s advanced CX primary and secondary colour corrector, and dynamic slow-motion controls.
Liquid Edition offers background rendering so that the editor does not have to interrupt the creative workflow.
