Paris, France/Nevada City, Calif., November 2, 2010 — Grass Valley™ is expanding the capabilities of EDIUS® Neo 3, the industry's most comprehensive and powerful multi-format editing platform for the consumer and prosumer market, providing video editors with increased speed, wider format support, and improved system efficiency.
EDIUS Neo 3 gives users the ability to work with a wide variety of video formats up to 1080p50/60resolution. Based on the new Grass Valley EDIUS® 6 NLE software, EDIUS Neo 3 allows editors to focus on being creative without having to wait for effects and transitions to be rendered.
EDIUS Neo 3 has the fastest native AVCHD editing capability in the industry – perfect for editing video content captured with digital SLR cameras, such as the Canon EOS, as well as additional AVCHD “video” cameras. EDIUS Neo 3 requires no transcoding, even when different compression formats and image resolutions are mixed on the timeline.
New features include "3D Layouter", a tool for managing 3D digital effects, an audio mixer, full-screen preview and motion menus for DVD and Blu-ray Disc production.
EDIUS Neo 3 is designed to be flexible so that it can be implemented in a wide range of applications. For example, it can be used as a low-cost editing platform for education, providing an easy stepping-stone in terms of usability to the full version of EDIUS, which is used in many broadcast stations and independent post production facilities around the world.
EDIUS Neo 3 also includes support for Grass Valley’s HDSPARK and FIRECODER Blu hardware boards, to enhance the video editing and distribution experiences.
Pricing and Availability
Grass Valley's EDIUS Neo 3 software will begin shipping in November, with prices ranging from US$229 to $749, depending upon hardware configuration.
