What's New in EDIUS 7.4

EDIUS multiformat nonlinear editing software, one of the fastest editing solutions for professional and broadcast environments, offers advanced real-time editing capabilities and the ability to mix formats on the same timeline.

Now, with the release of EDIUS 7.4, editing professionals have even more functionality at their fingertips, enabling them to edit anything, anywhere, with no rendering required. Version 7.4 is a free upgrade for all users of EDIUS 7.X.

EDIUS Pro 7.4 adds support for AJA Video Systems' KONA 3G hardware, GenArts' Sapphire plugin and Red Giant's PluralEyes. Two new software options?for Avid DNxHD and Dolby Digital Pro/Plus?will also be released. For EDIUS Elite, Avid DNxHD and Dolby Digital functionality is included as standard, and in addition the GV STRATUS workflow has been improved with the ability to launch from GV STRATUS settings or standalone. A new scavenge encoder creates proxy files when importing non-GV STRATUS clips, and EDIUS Elite now has the ability to export different formats to different destinations in a GV STRATUS ecosystem.

"EDIUS is a proven one-stop-shop editing solution with built-in and third-party creative tools for fast-turn and long-form editing," noted Cronk. "This update addresses recent technology advancements and helps to ensure that users continue to have choices in hardware platforms, creative options and evolving formats. This is all part of the Grass Valley mission?providing solutions that are future-ready." New "Sport" packages will be shown for the Karrera K-Frame systems. A newly developed compact video frame with internal power supplies can be configured utilizing both a new controller board with ImageStore and multiviewer capability and new triple mix/effects boards. This flexible cost-effective solution provides easy setup, streamlined workflows, and high-quality content to support next-generation formats and technologies.
