Grass Valley Edius Workgroup 9 Overview

  • 1Description

Grass Valley EDIUS Workgroup 9 is a versatile and comprehensive nonlinear editor for broadcast news and other applications. EDIUS Workgroup 9 is designed to let you organize and edit mixed files and formats efficiently to get it on the air fast, and you can use it as a standalone user in the field or within network-connected production infrastructures. EDIUS Workgroup 9 is 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.

EDIUS Workgroup 9 builds on the features of EDIUS Pro 9, offering the same toolset but adding over a dozen key features aimed at broadcasters. The additional features include 4K at 60/50p 3rd-party hardware output, draft preview mode, DNxHD codec support, support for GV STRATUS Connect and K2 Connect options, and more (see full bullet list in the Features section below).

EDIUS Workgroup 9 provides native support for virtually all commonly used file formats, such as XAVC/XAVC S and AVC-Ultra/Intra, and allows for real-time editing of multiple formats and frame rates on the same timeline. It supports resolutions from 24 x 24 to 4K x 2K on the same timeline, and converts between HD/SD and HDR/SDR resolutions, aspect ratios, and frame rates in real time. You can edit in HD and place 4:3 video on the timeline, mix NTSC and PAL sources, add 4K content, or combine everything into projects in other resolutions and frame rates without waiting for any conversion or rendering to process. In addition to native format support, you can take advantage of Grass Valley's 10-bit intermediate codec, HQX.

The application can be installed on two machines, and you can edit in proxy mode if one of the machines isn't powerful enough.
