The video production world struggles with many different file types and formats of digital media. Mync (pronounced mink) from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, not only functions as a universal media player, but also automatically organizes your content to make it easy to manage and share.
Mync comes in two stand-alone versions: Basic and Standard.
— A downloadable application designed to provide exceptional format support for media playback and content organization — a media player on steroids. If you use a smartphone or DSLR camera and simply looking to manage and play back your digital media and upload a simple playlist to online content platforms, including YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook, then Mync Basic is for you. Note that supported video formats and storyboard functionality will be limited — see Mync Standard. Mync Basic has a limited time free introductory period.
— Adds more functionality to the Basic version with storyboard video editing and more advanced content management features. This version is designed for digital photographers, web content creators and people new to video editing, with a simpler user interface (compared with Grass Valley EDIUS or similar NLEs). Note that the Mync Standard version is included free with EDIUS 8.
