Grass Valley Demonstrates Real-time 8K Editing For the First Time at InterBEE

Hillsboro, Ore., November 13, 2013 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) at booth 7316. 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 ideal 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," said Mike Cronk, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Grass Valley. "In this exciting technical introduction, we will preview 8K video clips that demonstrate EDIUS's capabilities."
