Grass Valley, a producer of media processing and storage products, launches EDIUS 7, the latest version of the company’s nonlinear video-editing application.
EDIUS is a solution for editors working on fast-turn production in broadcast news, newsmagazine and studio program content, as well as for professional-video editors working on organizational, documentary and 4K theatrical productions, according to Grass Valley.
EDIUS 7 is a native 64-bit application for Windows 7 and Windows 8 64-bit operating systems, taking full advantage of up to 512 GB (dependent upon the Windows version) of installed memory for super-intensive media operations, such as multilayer 4K and 3D editing, Grass Valley said.
The unit’s compatibility with all major file formats and its ability to edit in real time without rendering makes the unit “an ideal solution for either broadcast or post-production environments,” said Mike Cronk, Grass Valley’s senior vice president, marketing. “No other nonlinear video editing software gives users the real-time speed and functionality that EDIUS does,” he added.
In addition, EDIUS 7 supports any mix of SD, HD, 2K and 4K resolutions, with editing performance increasing as CPU power increases. EDIUS 7 has also been optimized for multicore and Intel fourth-generation Core i CPU systems, the company said.
EDIUS 7 will be available in Pro and Elite versions with EDIUS Pro 7 designed for use by the professional stand-alone user and EDIUS Elite 7 designed for editors working collaboratively within network-connected production environments, Grass Valley said.
The Elite version features integration with GV STRATUS nonlinear production tools and Grass Valley K2 media servers and storage with the ability for multiple edit stations to edit-in-place, record directly to K2 and simultaneously edit live video while being ingested, the company said.
EDIUS Pro 7 is available for a free 30-day trial, Grass Valley said.
