The NewTek SpeedEDIT 2 - Educational License (5-Seat Lab Pack Upgrade) is a resolution-independent video editor that streamlines the editing process for high definition (HD) to standard definition (SD) to Web, and eliminates unnecessary steps. Offering editing in native video resolution, the video editor avoids the need to transcode or pre-trim video content before editing. It further accelerates the editing process by dynamically linking Storyboard and Timeline which provides the ability to perform many common functions in fewer steps.
Providing support for MPEG-2, AVI, QuickTime, and other major video formats in both HD and SD, the SpeedEDIT 2 offers real-time full resolution on-screen HD previews with IEEE 1394 output to camera or deck. It also offers faster performance for functions like ripple edits, clip replacement, segment repositioning, 3D video rotation, color correction, animated titles, and image sequence playback.
The SpeedEDIT 2 Educational works with an Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon processor that supports Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (SSE2). It is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, and XP operating systems. The video editor requires 1 GB of system RAM, a DVD drive, 6 GB of free disk space, a DirectX 9 capable graphics card with 64 MB of RAM for a minimum 1280 x 1024 screen resolution, and an IEEE1394 FireWire card for DV or HDV capture.
