Grass Valley Enhances EDIUS Neo 3 Editing Platform

Grass Valley is expanding the capabilities of EDIUS Neo 3 multi-format editing platform, providing video editors with increased speed, wider format support, and improved system efficiency.

EDIUS Neo 3 gives users the ability to work with a wide variety of video formats up to 1080p50/60resolution. Based on the new Grass Valley EDIUS 6 NLE software, EDIUS Neo 3 allows editors to focus on editing without having to wait for effects and transitions to be rendered.

EDIUS Neo 3 has fast native AVCHD editing capability – ideal for editing video content captured with digital SLR cameras, such as the Canon EOS, as well as additional AVCHD “video” cameras. EDIUS Neo 3 requires no transcoding, even when different compression formats and image resolutions are mixed on the timeline.

New features include “3D Layouter”, a tool for managing 3D digital effects, an audio mixer, full-screen preview and motion menus for DVD, and Blu-ray Disc production. EDIUS Neo 3 also includes support for Grass Valley’s HDSPARK and FIRECODER Blu hardware boards.

EDIUS Neo 3 is designed to be flexible so that it can be implemented in a wide range of applications. For example, it can be used as a low-cost editing platform for education, providing an easy stepping-stone in terms of usability to the full version of EDIUS, which is used in many broadcast stations and independent postproduction facilities around the world.
