Grass Valley Announces EDIUS 7.3 with Advanced Features

Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, announced version 7.3 of its widely used EDIUS Pro and Elite multiformat nonlinear editing software. This new version boasts a host of new features to amplify productivity throughout the entire post production workflow, including I/O support for the Matrox MXO2 LE, MXO2 Rack, Mojito MAX and MXO2 Mini editing devices. New features include multi-channel audio monitoring for clip preview, SONY XAVC format export, lower bit-rate audio support for MP4 output, AAF exchange with DaVinci Resolve and audio monitoring while capturing with third-party I/O hardware. The ability to support Matrox expands the software's capabilities even further. Matrox MXO2 editing devices are versatile I/O products that are used in various places including laptop and desktop computers, studios, OB vans and on set. They can connect to the editing computer via PCIe or ExpressCard/34 adapters.

Grass Valley Enhances K2 Dyno Replay System with Powerful New Capabilities

Grass Valley announced feature enhancements to its widely used K2 Dyno Replay System that promise to deliver more captivating content than ever before — helping broadcasters to tell the best possible stories to their viewers. K2 Dyno includes a host of upgrades, such as the new AnySpeed dynamic playback algorithm, which automatically guarantees smooth playback at any speed from zero to 200% and in speed transitions for ultra slow-motion 6X playout. It also integrates with Grass Valley's latest high-speed cameras and the K2 Summit 3G Production Client, and it is compatible with higher resolutions and frame rates — all while maintaining easy integration into the live production workflow. In addition, K2 Dyno now includes 4K pan/zoom support, 6X ultra slow-motion playout (from the LDX XtremeSpeed and LDX Compact XtremeSpeed cameras), 6x2 I/0s, and an optional package for sports graphics and telestration with the tOG-Sports application developed by RT Software. All of these features are controlled from a single K2 Dyno Replay Controller touchscreen, making it the complete solution for the capture, replay, managing, editing, and playout of compelling content. These new features will be available for K2 Dyno in May 2014. For a complete end-to-end solution, K2 Dyno provides integration and support for ChannelFlex multicam recording into the GV STRATUS Scheduler for a collaborative, file-based production workflow, from image capture through distribution of content. Grass Valley's EDIUS nonlinear editing software can also be installed on the K2 Dyno S controller to create compelling content packages during breaks in the action. The operator can place K2 Dyno highlights directly on the EDIUS timeline, enhance the content, and then put the completed material in a K2 Dyno folder to cue and playback all on a single replay system. Additionally at NAB, Grass Valley will be demonstrating file sharing between an EVS XT3 and K2 Dyno.

Grass Valley Introduces Four New High-Speed Cameras to its LDX Range

Grass Valley announced four new additions to the LDX range — the LDX HiSpeed (LDX HS) and LDX Compact HiSpeed (LDX Compact HS) 3X super slow-motion cameras and the LDX XtremeSpeed (LDX XS) and LDX Compact XtremeSpeed (LDX Compact XS) 6X ultra slow-motion cameras. These powerful new LDX cameras are built around Grass Valley's proprietary Xensium-FT CMOS imagers to deliver superb picture quality, high sensitivity, and high dynamic range for a wide variety of production applications. The LDX HS and LDX Compact HS 3X cameras are the successors to the LDK 8300 3X super slow-motion camera and support 1080i and 720p with 150 and 179.82 triple-speed frame rates, with an additional 1X standard speed "live" output for seamless integration with standard cameras planned for future release. The LDX HS and LDX Compact HS are software upgradable via GV-eLicenses to the LDX XS and LDX Compact XS, respectively. The LDX XS and LDX Compact XS deliver instant time-to-air capabilities and integrate seamlessly into live workflows with 3X and 6X speeds. The cameras deliver images in 1080i and 720p with 150 and 179.82 triple-speed frame rates and 300 and 359.64 sextuple-speed frame rates, as well as 150 and 179.82 triple-speed frame rates in 1080p, with an additional 1X standard speed 'live' output for seamless integration with standard cameras planned for future release. This makes the LDX XS and LDX Compact XS the perfect choice for both super slow-motion and ultra slow-motion applications. Of primary concern to producers and directors, the ultra slow-motion footage from the LDX XS and LDX Compact XS is available immediately, without having to wait for the camera to transfer clips from an internal storage device. Both the LDX XS and LDX Compact XS transfer acquired footage in real-time to an external server so it can be used on-air immediately without missing any action on the field of play. To eliminate the problem of light flicker in ultra and super slow-motion image capture, the LDX XS and LDX HS system cameras are equipped with AnyLightXtreme, to correct artificial light flicker which can be visually disturbing to viewers. To fully support triple-speed 1080p and sextuple-speed ultra slow-motion operations, Grass Valley developed a new fiber transmission, the XCU XtremeSpeed XF Fiber, which utilizes the same XCU cradles as its single-speed range of XCU base stations. Because the XCU's unique cradle can be pre-mounted and pre-wired in the rack, it can quickly and easily be transferred between OB vans, studios, or any place, which extends its usability. Grass Valley is exhibiting at NAB in Las Vegas from April 7 to 10, 2014 on booth SL206 and N2513.
