Thomson launch EDIUS Pro version 4.0

During NAB, Grass Valley announced EDIUS Pro version 4.0, the latest version of the company’s realtime, multiformat video editing solution.
New features such as multicam support, nested sequence editing, improved trimming tools and keyframe support for colour correction, boost EDIUS Pro’s reputation as a highly flexible craft editing solution that delivers maximum productivity to video professionals.
To meet the high standards and fast-paced environments of broadcast and post production facilities, including support for new tape less acquisition and storage systems, the new features found in EDIUS Pro version 4.0 will also be included in the company’s highly regarded EDIUS Broadcast software solution.
The new multicam feature in EDIUS Pro version 4.0 supports up to eight cameras and provides realtime monitor preview, as well as a master channel preview that displays all eight camera angles. The multicam feature provides users with the feel of a live switcher, but with the flexibility of a nonlinear editing environment.
For additional productivity gains, support for nested timeline editing lets users work on sections of a production as separate timelines and nest them into a master project for simplified editing, task separation and organisation.
EDIUS Pro version 4.0 also provides support for Windows Media and includes EDIUS Speed Encoder for HDV for fast HDV video output. The new parameter-based keyframe support for frame-by-frame colour correction gives users the tools to quickly enhance the quality of their video productions.
Editors worldwide were consulted with to continue to improve EDIUS’s workflow and usability. A key feature of EDIUS Pro version 4.0 is the enhanced trimming functionality.
Freeing video editors from the limitations of conventional editing systems, EDIUS Pro provides a seamless realtime workflow supporting all video acquisition formats with realtime, multi-track, mixed format HD/SD editing, compositing, chroma keying, titling and timeline output capabilities. EDIUS Pro provides editors with realtime, mixed format HD/SD editing of HD, HDV, DV, MPEG-2, lossless and uncompressed SD video.
For the fast-paced environments of broadcast and post production facilities, Grass Valley also offers EDIUS Broadcast. Incorporating all of the realtime editing capabilities in a streamlined interface designed to help production professionals get content to air quickly, EDIUS Broadcast features EDIUS Pro realtime video editing software, as well as support for industry-standard equipment and formats including: Panasonic DVCPRO P2; Panasonic DVCPRO 50 and DVCPRO HD; Panasonic VariCam; Sony XDCAM Professional Disc System.
Grass Valley offers the EDIUS NX and EDIUS SP NLE systems that combine EDIUS Pro and EDIUS Broadcast software, respectively, with realtime editing hardware. EDIUS software directly supports OHCI FireWire.
