Edius SimulCapture - NETWORK SHARED EDITING OPTION FOR EDIUS6

Edit growing files on multiple EDIUS clients, while being ingested into a network shared drive.

EDIUS® SimulCapture™ is optional software from Grass Valley™ specifically designed for EDIUS v6.03 (required) that enables multiple EDIUS clients to edit live video, simultaneously ingested by another EDIUS client, in a network editing environment.

Files can be edited immediately while being ingested, and editors can register clips in the Bin window, as well as edit the clips, without having to wait for other clients to finish editing.


EDIUS SimulCapture doesn’t require installation. With EDIUS v6.03, users just plug in the USB dongle that comes with the SimulCapture option. This allows an EDIUS client to capture and ingest in a format that allows simultaneous editing from other EDIUS clients. There are no additional commands in the capture dialog box. When the USB dongle is plugged in, EDIUS automatically captures in "Simul Edit Mode."
