First 4K…now 8K? Grass Valley brings real-time 8K editing to InterBEE
Grass Valley is offering a preview of future 8K support for its EDIUS 7 multiformat nonlinear editing software at the International Broadcast Equipment Exhibition (InterBEE). The demonstration follows recent announcements that the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo, Japan, will be broadcast in 8K – 16 times the resolution of today’s HD format.
Support for editing super high-resolution video in EDIUS is made possible by Grass Valley’s HQX Codec, which dramatically improves editing response time and is the key technology behind real-time editing. Supporting 4K as well as 8K in the future, with a native 64-bit architecture, EDIUS 7 is the latest version of Grass Valley’s editing software and is suitable for a variety of production and broadcast environments. It’s compatible with all major file formats, and can edit in real-time without rendering.
“EDIUS is widely used around the world, and we’re excited to be offering demonstrations of future support for 8K,” says Mike Cronk, senior vice-president, marketing, Grass Valley. “In this exciting technical introduction, we will preview 8K video clips that demonstrate EDIUS’s capabilities.”
