When you need a video — or tons of video — edited fast to get it on the air, you need an NLE that will take everything you've got and work with it as quickly as possible. EDIUS Workgroup 8 from Grass Valley comes about as close as possible to letting you do just that.

Ideal as a finishing tool for broadcast news, news magazine content, and studio programs, EDIUS Workgroup 8 supports an extensive amount of formats and resolutions and allows you to edit pretty much all popular 4K, HD, and SD formats in real time with no rendering. Of course its feature set makes it no less suitable for more common editing projects, including documentary and film work. So it's a fit whether you're a stand-alone user at home or in the field, or connected to production infrastructure within a network, or if you switch between the two environments.

In addition to the format flexibility, the difference between EDIUS Workgroup 8 and EDIUS Pro 8 is that Workgroup offers system SDK support, native Avid DNxHD support, EDIUS XRE support, the ability to edit growing files, an EDIUS watch folder, Dolby E pass-through, ANC data (captioning) pass-through, audio monitoring mode, loudness monitoring, connection to external storage via FTP, a generic MXF exporter, integration with 3rd-party MAM systems from Square Box Systems, support for a Dolby Plus/Professional license option, and Grass Valley STORM 4K I/O Card support.
