Grass Valley, a producer of media processing and storage solutions, is introducing the latest version its multi-format, nonlinear editing software, the EDIUS Neo 3.5.
The EDIUS Neo 3.5 is a sub-set of its latest EDIUS Pro 6.5 NLE package and is designed for the professional video user, video enthusiast and education markets where ease of use, pristine image quality, high-power signal processing and the ability to edit mixed format files on the same timeline are critical to project success, the company says.
With the EDIUS Neo 3.5, users can work with images shot with Canon DSLR cameras, as well as stabilize shaky footage and edit stereoscopic 3D content, features typically found on more costly editing packages. Users can also deliver their finished work to the web and DVD/Blu-ray disk. Video formats supported include: AVCHD (2.0), MPEG-2, HDV, DV, Windows Media, QuickTime, all file types that these markets are very familiar with, Grass Valley says.
“There is a wide user base that could really benefit from the professional tools found on the EDIUS platform, but can’t afford the full Pro version, so Neo 3.5 software is exactly what they have been asking for,” said Charlie Dunn, Grass Valley’s executive vice president of products. “The scalability of the EDIUS platform has allowed Grass Valley to bring more targeted editing solutions to a wider range of users. We think a whole new generation of video enthusiasts will be able to create some fantastic video,” he said.
