EDIUS Pro 7
Edit Anything, Anywhere

Real Time Editing—Right Now

When an editor has to wait for technology, creativity suffers. That doesn't happen with EDIUS® 7.

It's simple: EDIUS Pro 7 is the fastest and most versatile real time editing software—4K, 3D, HD, SD, and almost any format from 24x24 to 4Kx2K, all on the same timeline, even in nested sequences, all in real time. And now EDIUS has partnered with Blackmagic Design to support its PCIe DeckLink 4K Extreme and Thunderbolt-based UltraStudio 4K capture and playback devices for the most affordable 4K workflows.

EDIUS Pro 7 means more resolutions, unlimited tracks, and real-time editing for the ability to Edit Anything, Anywhere. EDIUS Pro 7 is the perfect finishing tool for broadcast news, newsmagazine content, and studio programs, as well as corporate, documentary, and 4K theatrical productions.

That's why broadcasters, production houses, media departments, and video professionals worldwide choose Grass Valley® EDIUS for multiformat editing.

Limitless: With no limitations to the number of audio, video, graphics, and title tracks, EDIUS Pro 7 can handle the most complex projects, even in 4K.

Plays well with others: EDIUS Pro 7 is now open to third-party input and output hardware from Blackmagic Design and Matrox, with support for AJA Video Systems hardware scheduled for Summer 2014. EDIUS Pro 7 also supports EDL project import/export color correction interchange with DaVinci Resolve for a new color grading workflow.

What's high can be low: Low-resolution proxy editing mode enables older desktop and laptop systems with the power of EDIUS Pro 7. That means you don't need the latest and greatest system to edit with EDIUS Pro 7.

Transcode this: With unrivaled real-time video transcoding technology, EDIUS Pro 7 gives you the ability to convert between 4K, HD, and SD resolutions, aspect ratios, and frame rates—all in real time.

What's new in EDIUS Pro 7?

  • Third-party I/O hardware support for Blackmagic, with Matrox and AJA support coming in a future update
  • Faster handling of large quantities of still image files (JPG, TGA, DPX, and others)
  • Improved MPEG encoder speed and quality
  • Improved H.264/AVC decoder
  • Optimization for 4th generation Intel Core processor family architecture
  • Gaussian blur filter

Please Note: Do not install EDIUS 7 (trial or full version) software on a machine that has any other version of EDIUS installed, unless performing a permanent upgrade. Grass Valley recommends that all previous versions of EDIUS software be uninstalled.

Aptly titled India's Forgotten Children, this compelling new documentary is the latest in a series of five films about India, produced and edited by by veteran producer and editor Michael Lawson on behalf of UK-based human rights charity Pipe Village Trust.

With a full month's intensive filming on hand, Lawson turned to the powerful editing capabilities of EDIUS® Pro 7 from Grass Valley® to help make sense of all the footage and select the most pertinent and gripping images that portrayed the true plight of the children in the Dalit community.
