HD Editing
EDIUS allows you to edit DV content in HD resolution using automatic, real-time upscale-conversion from SD to HD.

You can even export HDV content to hard disks or DVD-R without the need for an expensive HDV camera or deck.
Mixed Format Timeline
The software supports a mixed format timeline that lets you work with work with multiple video formats in real time. This lets you mix HD and SD resolutions, aspect ratios and frame rates without the hassle of constant rendering. You'll even be able to playback DV output of effects, keyers, transitions and titles in real time while you edit.

EDIUS is built around the Canopus HQ Codec. This has been designed in conjunction with Scalable Technology to deliver high image quality and performance for HD video. It provides superlative Luma and Chroma sampling and adjustable bitrates when encoding.
