The industry’s most comprehensive and powerful multi-format editing platform, EDIUS® 6 from Grass Valley™, has won the "Best of IBC2010" award from the editors of TVB Europe and The IBC Daily. Teams from the two specialist publications collaborated at the recent IBC2010 convention in Amsterdam, the Netherlands to choose the strongest designs and winning products from the show. EDIUS 6 nonlinear editing (NLE) software was honored as one of the most innovative and intelligent product introductions.
The award is a testament to the expanded capabilities of EDIUS 6 which continues to help broadcasters, independent professional video editors, and prosumers to streamline their workflows with increased speed, wider format support, and improved system efficiency.
"Our team has a unique insight into the IBC exhibitor community," said Fergal Ringrose, Editor of TVB Europe and The IBC Daily. "For these awards, we picked the most innovative and most clever new products at Europe’s biggest show for broadcast and media professionals. We were especially looking for new products that clearly show the potential to make or save money for end-users".
EDIUS 6 gives users the ability to work with any video standard up to 1080p50/60 or 4K digital cinema resolution. Also, all major codecs in use in the industry are supported natively, with no transcoding required even when different compression formats are mixed on the timeline. In addition, users are able to preview effects in real time.
"EDIUS 6 continues the Grass Valley tradition of delivering unmatched power for editing complex compression formats," said Jeff Rosica, Senior Vice President of Grass Valley.
"It also goes a step further to help users focus on the creative side of editing, without having to think about the technical side. A big part of EDIUS 6 is based on user requests for a variety of new features, making the EDIUS solution an even more valuable tool for the post-production community."
