  • 1Description

NewsCutter 11 Editing Software and Nitris DX with AVC Intra-Option is a bundle from Avid for computers running 64-bit versions of either Windows 7 or Windows 8. It features editing software designed for news industry professionals working against tight deadlines as well as an I/O device for SD and HD capture, monitoring, and to provide hardware acceleration of the editing workflow.

Geared toward high-pressure broadcast news editing, NewsCutter is designed to provide all the tools journalists need to produce news-from the field or in the newsroom. Tight integration with newsroom automation systems and playout servers, ultra-fast media acquisition, and support for open and efficient production workflows make NewsCutter a defensible choice for independent stations and worldwide media organizations alike.

The Nitris DX works with Media Composer 7 and Symphony as well as NewsCutter 11. It is more than just an I/O device, as not only does it perform real-time encoding to AVC-Intra, it also provides hardware acceleration to your system when handling files encoded as AVC-Intra, HDV, DVCPro25, and XDCAM EX. This frees up your system's CPU and GPU resources for other tasks including playback and effects rendering.

The Nitris DX features SD-SDI, HD-SDI, component, composite, and S-video I/O connectors. It also features HDMI out for monitoring. It supports ref sync in/out, Longitudinal Timecode (LTC), and Wordclock for digital audio sync. An optional expansion boards allow you to add full frame 3D (stereoscopic) functionality using the AVC-Intra codec, or you can install an optional board to add DNxHD support.

The Nitris DX interfaces with the host computer using a dedicated PCIe host card and therefore requires a desktop computer with a free PCIe slot. Alternatively, an optional ExpressCard/34 host interface will allow the Nitris to be used with qualifying laptop computers that have ExpressCard/34 expansion slots.

    Frame Chase Editing
    Play or edit MXF media that is currently being captured by another supported device such as Avid AirSpeed Multi Stream. Eliminates a digitizing bottleneck; multiple workstations can begin editing immediately as footage is acquired

    Quick Record
    Enables mouse-free and keyboard-free recording and shot selection of material into NewsCutter using the VTR shuttle knob. When Quick Record mode is enabled, NewsCutter starts capturing automatically whenever the servo-lock mode is detected from the deck. When the deck is playing and servo-lock is detected, capturing begins and continues until play is stopped, at which point it will wait for the next servo lock signal. In this way recording and rough NewsCutter edits can be completed just using the VTR jog knob

    Timed Capture (Scheduled Recording)
    Unattended recording at preset times for multiple events. Allows recording through NewsCutter to local or Avid Unity shared storage of a one-time or regularly occurring event or satellite feed

    Alternate Edit
    Cycles through pre-selected alternate shots within a story to decide which works best in context or to repackage news stories instantly. One button previewing and overwriting of a selected clip in a sequence with any other pre-selected clips. Each time the button is pressed, the clip where the position indicator is located is replaced by a clip in the Alternate Edits bin
    Newsroom and Workflow
    Locators mark a single frame within a clip or sequence to allow the point to be easily found later. The locater can include an attached text note or link. Locators can be added on-the-fly or after recording. Color coding of locators facilitates finding clips b category or content. Eight colored locators are mapped to eight (F5-F12) function keys

    NRCS Tool
    Opens an iNEWS or ENPS interactive session within NewsCutter. Editors can view rundowns and scripts and edit video to scripts by dropping selected or pre-selected (based on locaters created in iNEWS) text directly to the timeline. Clips are pre-timed to reporter's read rate. Improves, simplifies, and speeds story creation between journalist and editor; full functionality with Asian-language scripts. Includes several capabilities including sending mail within iNEWS workgroups

    Loaded Cues
    Links that act as pointers within an iNEWS script to master clips stored in Avid bins. Makes it easy to move clips or sequences between scripts and bins as a story is edited. Includes display of a loaded cue icons and head frames

    Locate sequences with associated NRCS stories or locate stories from their associated video sequences. Makes it easier to find stories on the iNEWS server or to load sequences for iNEWS scripts directly into the timeline

    Post to Web
    Through the NRCS tool, NewsCutter can generate a hypertext version of the iNEWS story for viewing on a web site. The Post to Web feature helps you create internet content directly from a single script rather than requiring the production of multiple content versions for broadcast and for the web. When a story is posted to the web, the Web page can include the text of the iNEWS story, as well as links to video and image files. User-designed templates provide formatting for the Web content. Post to Web automatically changes NRCS scripts that have been written in uppercase to lower case except for the first words in sentences. It also deletes presenter instruction and closed captions. This feature works in conjunction with any application that can receive HTML, and works with the Avid Active Content Manager online news publishing application
    Send to Playback Command
    This command is typically used by an editor or journalist to simultaneously create and send a single "flat" file to a playback or transmission server. Enhancements to this feature in v.8.0 save several steps and simplify workflow, especially when using proxy editing or different resolutions for editing and transmission. With one click the Send to Playback command automatically:
    • Re-links to full resolution media specified by the target settings
    • Renders any un-rendered effects
    • Performs necessary transcoding from the editing resolution to desired playback resolution

    Digital Cut with Audio Mix Mode
    The Digital Cut Tool allows sequences to be easily recorded to another device. In NewsCutter, an Audio Mix Mode button allows the editor to do a pre-mix of audio tracks with preset levels for voice and ambiance, for example. This can avoid the need for mixing by a sound engineer

    Disable Resolutions
    A user or administrator can specify resolutions that should be disabled, preventing disallowed resolutions to be accidentally played to air

    GPI Triggers
    NewsCutter can send signals to a V-LAN VLXi deck controller and a general purpose interface GPI

    Bundled Applications

    Manages processor-intensive media transfers to and from video servers and transcoding engines. Broadcasters and post-production facilities can exchange high-resolution media with other workgroups, remote locations, and partner-integrated systems
