Grass Valley releases Edius X, its next-gen editing software
Grass Valley announces the launch of Edius X, the next generation of the multiformat software. The solution comes with a completely redesigned core engine, along with a modular concept allowing fully customizable workflows.
Edius X features background rendering and background export. The enhanced Layouter motion tracking allows the user to attach a label, animation, or video clip to a tracked object, and when combined with Anchor Mode reframes a shot with reference to the tracked object.
Edius X supports the newest codecs and camera releases natively. The software also includes enhanced GPU acceleration, which includes an “ultrafast” H.265 export which is also available with the new background rendering options. Furthermore, explains Grass Valley, “the new modular design allows utilizing the potential of multi core CPUs more efficient than ever before”.
The solution also comes bundled with three new modules for optimizing audio, title creation and video effects including all new seamless transitions.
Katsushi Takeuchi, Grass Valley’s vice president of editing systems, said: “The demand for captivating, stunning quality content is at an all-time high; it is therefore imperative for broadcasters, content owners and production companies to have tools that are reliable, fast and flexible. Building on the industry proliferation of cloud technologies and software-based workflows, the launch of EDIUS X ensures that we continue to provide our customers with the most enhanced capabilities and functionalities.”
