SSL integrates with Final Cut Pro

Solid State
Logic, announced a new Gravity
interface to Apple’s Final Cut Pro editing software. The integration allows for
the seamless sending of Final Cut Pro compatible files from Gravity to a Final
Cut Pro editing system without rendering.
“ Solid State
Logic and Apple Computer both represent the cutting edge of innovation with the
Gravity system and the very popular Final Cut Pro video editing software,” says
Jerry Berger, Vice President Sales for Solid State Logic. “In a demonstration
at NAB, Gravity ingested files were used by its Package Production Tool for
first cut editing (including transition effects) and then the timeline was
converted to XML files for export to Apple’s Final Cut Pro — all without
rendering. Final Cut Pro may then be used for more finessed craft editing
such as adding special Text or 3D effects prior to publishing back to an Omneon
server for storage and playout. This creates a powerful and efficient
combination of simple, effective content editing for fast breaking news or
sports stories with seamless transfer to more detailed craft editing for
archiving or later highlights program packages.”
Gravity is Solid State
Logic’s new remote collaborative, proxy-based, video production editing
environment with complete media asset management capabilities. The
Gravity system is designed to pull together an entire production and
distribution workflow, changing forever the way organizations gather, produce,
manage, and publish broadcast news or sports. Gravity features a
picon based – format independent, cataloguing, indexing, editing, and
playout system with features of local or remote encoding, transcoding, database
management and more. Gravity also enables increased availability to
high-definition video by making web-enabled, proxy-based access to content at
very low bandwidth.
Final Cut Pro has taken
the industry by storm by providing high-end editing capabilities in an
extremely cost effective package. The industry penetration from educational
facilities and professional installations across the entire spectrum of
broadcast and post facilities is remarkable. The integration with Gravity is a
big plus for the industry.
