Grass Valley launches next-generation editing software Edius X
Grass Valley has announced the launch of its next generation multi-format editing software, Edius X.
The software comes with a completely redesigned core engine along with a modular concept allowing more performance for fully customisable workflows.
Commenting on the release, Katsushi Takeuchi, Grass Valley’s vice president of editing systems, said: “The demand for captivating, 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.”
Edius X features background rendering and background export making the workflow a smooth, uninterrupted experience. The enhanced layouter motion tracking allows the user to easily 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.
The software supports the newest codecs and camera releases natively, and also includes enhanced GPU acceleration. This includes an ultrafast H.265 export which is also available with the new background rendering options. The new modular design allows utilising the potential of multi core CPUs more efficient than before.
