Simultaneous Video Capture/Editing of Live Video for EDIUS

Grass Valley announced the Simul Capture Option for the company’s EDIUS 6® nonlinear editing system. The Simul Capture Option allows users to ingest live video on one EDIUS client while they simultaneously begin to edit it on a different EDIUS client – perfect for live productions.

Simultaneous editing of live feeds makes quick turnaround of breaking news easy, as well as the speedy creation of playlists on the fly.  EDIUS clients connected via K2 SAN or EDIUS Workgroup Storage can individually access and edit the video, allowing for multiple edits from the same source.


Videos can be ingested as MXF format (MPEG-2, AVC-Intra, DVCPRO, HQ codec) as well as AVI format (Grass Valley’s HQ / HQX CODEC and Uncompressed).  Editing markers can be placed within the captured live content, allowing for a smoother editing workflow.

Grass Valley™ also announced the latest update to the popular nonlinear video editing software EDIUS® 6.  The update (version 6.03), distributed free of charge to registered version 6.xx users, brings new video file formats and hardware-assisted H.264 encoding, as well as support for Grass Valley’s EDIUS NX, SP and HD legacy hardware.


This latest update supports both 50p & 60p file import (supported by JVC and Sony camcorders), allowing for a smoother workflow within EDIUS 6.

For users of Intel’s Second Generation Core Processor, EDIUS has extended support for Quick Sync Video Hardware H.264 video encoding of MP4 files to complement the AVCHD acceleration introduced in EDIUS 6 version 6.02.  Users will be able to enjoy faster than real-time encoding of videos for iPhone, Play Station Portable, as well as H.264/AVC videos up to 1920x1080p50/60.

EDIUS 6.03 now also supports the legacy EDIUS NX, SP and HD editing platforms, in addition to the current STORM range of editing hardware.

Pricing and Availability
The EDIUS Simul Capture Option will be available for the suggested retail price of $2,000 and will be available in July 2011.
