Avid Unveils Liquid Chrome Xe with AJA Support

At NAB, Avid unveiled Liquid Chrome Xe, the newest member of the Avid Liquid family.
With support for the AJA XENA LHe board, the Avid Liquid Chrome Xe system offers customers a powerful, low-cost SDI I/O option and support for uncompressed SD and HD video formats. Avid also announced version 7.2 software for all products in the Avid Liquid family, adding support for a variety of new camera formats from JVC, Panasonic, and Canon, as well as 24p support for JVC cameras.
Using Avid Liquid products, videographers can create and output high-quality SD and HD video productions in a variety of formats for tape, DVD, the Web, cell phones, iPods, and PlayStation Portable (PSP) devices.
Liquid Chrome Xe software works in conjunction with the AJA XENA LHe board for work on uncompressed HD video projects. The Avid Liquid Chrome Xe system also offers a wide range of I/O capabilities including SD and HD analogue and SDI I/O; analogue composite/component video I/O; 10-bit broadcast-quality hardware HD to SD down conversion; TBC via analogue inputs; analogue and digital stereo audio I/O; 2-channel analog audio I/O; and 2-channel AES, and 8-channel embedded audio. Users can also preview their projects in real-time from the timeline on an external monitor in HD.
Version 7.2 of Avid Liquid software offers a number of enhancements to the entire product family, including Avid Liquid - a software-only editing package; Avid Liquid Pro - the Avid Liquid software bundled with a USB-connected analogue SD breakout box; and the new Avid Liquid Chrome Xe system.
Each Avid Liquid software package combines video, audio, DVD, and effects creation in a single application, supports a variety of new camera formats and equips users with enhanced secondary colour correction, multi-cam support for up to 16 cameras, multiple streams of HDV in real time and Avid's industry standard Open Timeline for editing and playing back different formats and resolutions in real-time.
"With support for the AJA board and an expanded array of cameras and formats, we're truly enhancing the openness of Avid Liquid as well as the entire media production experience for our users," said Hans Venmans, Worldwide Product Marketing Manager for Avid Liquid. "The Avid Liquid product family can meet the needs of a diverse range of customers, from the serious event videographer who wants to work with a variety of native HD formats down to the independent producer looking to output creative work to a portable device like a PSP. With a range of flexible configurations, the Avid Liquid family meets the needs of any type of videographer."
