Grass Valley unveils EDIUS 8
Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, is launching EDIUS 8, the latest version of its editing platform designed for production and broadcast news. Version 8 features multiple new capabilities, including refreshed GUI, Canon XF-AVC support, a new workflow clip management tool, accelerated 4K H.264 playback and an aggressive development program to introduce many new creative tools over the coming months. EDIUS delivers exceptional performance using Intel's Quick Sync Video - providing editors with super-fast H.264 export capabilities for dealing with smartphone footage and repurposing for uploads to social media channels, including YouTub. EDIUS 8 will be available in two versions, EDIUS Pro and EDIUS Workgroup. EDIUS Pro is targeted at production professionals looking for flexible editing that offers speed and the ability to handle any file format with a range of creative tools. EDIUS Workgroup is aimed at collaborative news and sports editing for broadcasters, and can be fully integrated with the GV STRATUS video production and content management system, or other third-party media asset management tools and server offerings. EDIUS Pro 8 and EDIUS Workgroup 8 will ship towards the end of June 2015. [source]
