Enjoy real-time editing of multiple formats and frame rates, all on the same timeline, with Grass Valley's EDIUS Pro 8 nonlinear editing software. This version is discounted for academic institutions, faculty, and students. The software provides native support for virtually all commonly used file formats, including newer formats such as Sony XAVC and XAVC S, Panasonic AVC-Ultra, and Canon XF-AVC. With no rendering or file conversion required, editors will spend less time waiting around, and more time being creative. In addition to native format support, you can take advantage of Grass Valley's 10-bit intermediate codec, HQX, or even Avid DNxHD via an optional add-on. The software can be installed on two machines, letting edit on your laptop using the proxy mode, as well as your more powerful desktop workstation. EDIUS Pro 8 is designed as a native 64-bit application for Windows operating systems and takes advantage of system memory for intensive media operations such as layering, stereoscopic 3D, multicam, and multi-track 4K editing. New features found in EDIUS Pro 8 include a refreshed GUI, a new GV browser tool for managing and organizing your content prior to importing, and accelerated Intel Quick Sync Video optimization. Quick Sync Video is a feature found on Intel Core (i3, i5, i7) processors that accelerates MPEG-2 and H.264 encoding, so you can get those online and mobile version of your edit exported quickly. It also enables accelerated H.264 decoding for smoother playback, including 4K resolution clips. Additional features will be added to EDIUS Pro 8 via free updates.
