EDIUS & Quick Sync Video Technology Application Note (GVB-1-0501A-EN-AN) File size: 903.4 KB, posted Mar 31 2015 Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV) is a feature that has been included in Intel Core processors from the second generation onwards. QSV is a feature of all current Core processors (Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3), and is especially useful for video editing because it significantly accelerates MPEG-2 and H.264 encoding. QVS will improve encoding irrespective of the CPU power available too, which is good news for editors working to a budget.
EDIUS has been optimized for QSV to give users super-fast H.264 export (for example to Blu-ray, AVCHD or XAVC S). This Application Note describes the workflow of EDIUS with Quick Sync Video.

HDR and the Broadcast Environment: Better Pixels Create Better Content Whitepaper by Chris Merrill, Product Marketing & Klaus Weber, Principal, Camera Solutions and Technology, (GVB-1-0661B-EN-WP) File size: 1.3 MB, posted Feb 28 2019 HDR is generally recognized as the next big thing in content delivery with an immediate perceivable benefit for the consumer. The ability to produce HDR content in HD removes the significant bandwidth requirements needed for HDR in 4K UHD and can be more quickly deployed.
HDR is shaping up to be the next major advancement in the viewing experience, with consumers praising the image improvements and broadcasters working to find the best options for delivery. Grass Valley's HDR solutions allow its customers to choose the best approach for their specific production needs today, whether that be HD, 4K UHD or both, plus an easy upgrade path for tomorrow's demands with GV-eLicenses as production requirements change.
If video is shot in HLG format directly, it can be distributed without any color grading in cases where timing is of the essence.
Then, isn't it possible for Log format cameras like S-Log or V-Log to be used in such fields? Although a Log signal needs to be converted to HLG or Perceptual Quantization (PQ) in order to be displayed on consumer TVs, the conversion itself is not difficult. Leaving live production to one side, we can play out HDR clips with a short time lag after quick editing such as cut & paste, title addition and format conversion by using EDIUS.
But to do so, some points need to be taken into account, for example, the concept of picture tone is different between Log formats and HLG. The "Conversion Base" setting in the Primary Color Correction has implications based on the difference of the source material.
Ist es dann eigentlich nicht möglich, Kameras die im Log-Format aufzeichnen, wie etwa in S-Log oder V-Log, in solchen Bereichen zu verwenden? Ein Log-Signal muss nach HLG oder Perceptual Quantization (PQ) umgewandelt werden, damit es auf Consumer-TVs angezeigt werden kann die Umwandlung selbst ist aber nicht schwer.
Abgesehen von Liveproduktionen, können wir HDR-Clips mit nur geringer Zeitverzögerung ausspielen nach einem schnellen Schnitt mit Cut & Paste, dem Hinzufügen von Titeln und der Formatumwandlung mit EDIUS.
Um das zu erreichen, müssen aber einige Punkte beachtet werden: zum Beispiel unterscheidet sich die Farbgebung zwischen Log-Formaten und HLG. Wegen der Unterschiede im Quellmaterial hat die gewählte Einstellung der „Umwandlungsbasis" (Engl. Conversion Base) in der Primären Farbkorrektur Auswirkungen auf das jeweilige Ergebnis.
