Grass Valley exhibits workflow innovations13 June 2012
Grass Valley is exhibiting its latest high-definition (HD) video and audio editing, as well as digital video recording and management solutions at InfoComm.
Distributor for the company Starin Marketing is featuring the Grass Valley EDIUS 6.5 multiformat nonlinear video editing software and ADVC-G Series of multi-purpose digital video converters at its stand. These are being used to create audio and video clips, which are then stored and distributed (or displayed) via a Grass Valley T2 intelligent digital disk recorder (iDDR). Visitors will witness the software’s comprehensive 3D editing workflow and 4K production with additional native support for raw footage captured with digital cinematography cameras from RED Digital.
Several new options for the T2 iDDR include an improved user experience – based on improved processing speed and several new keyboard shortcuts – and a new QoS feature that streamlines clip record and playback capabilities.
In addition, there is new optional support for content stored on P2 solid-state cards and XDCAM optical disc media. With these additional options, users of the T2 iDDR can now playback HD clips compressed with both codecs (AVC-Intra/DVCPRO and MPEG-2 4:2:2, respectively). The new Alpha option for the T2 iDDR lets users separate the alpha channel from the source and set key and fill on two fully synchronized channels for simultaneous playback on multiple display screens.
