creativePLANET communities (2-POP, Editors net, post industry) XpressProHDIt wasn’t too long ago that editing high-definition video required large and expensive NLE systems. In just a few short years, the technology has evolved so that even a laptop can be used to cut HD footage. Low-cost, software-based HD editing was introduced last year; by the end of the year, Avid was shipping Avid Xpress Pro HD 5.0. This application is a highly capable SD and HD NLE that builds on the evolution of Avid Xpress DV and Avid Xpress Pro, as well as Avid’s own compressed HD codec, DNxHD (Digital Nonlinear Xtensible High Definition). It supports IEEE 1394 (FireWire) capture and output of DV25, DV50 (DVCPRO50) and DV100 (DVCPRO HD); connection to the Avid Mojo DNA (Digital Nonlinear Accelerator); and integration with other Avid units in a shared storage network. Avid Xpress Pro HD continues to offer such high-end features as Symphony-style color-correction, real-time multi-camera editing (even in HD) and 24-frame editing support. read more...
