Thomson Grass Valley intros new Edius HF Suite

Thomson Grass Valley has introduced EDIUS NX Creative HD Suite, an all-in-one bundle that brings together outstanding tools alongside the award-winning EDIUS multi-format editor.

The suite is based on EDIUS Pro 4.5 software, the latest version of the editor, which supports multiple formats on a single timeline. To meet the demand of any production requirements, EDIUS Pro 4.5 has been enhanced to natively edit images captured with the Thomson Grass Valley Infinity, Panasonic P2, and Sony XDCAM cameras. This functionality is normally only found in the EDIUS Broadcast version. The bundle includes a special PCI Express accelerator card and an HDV YUV output board.

Also included in the package are the full versions of three plug-ins from ProDAD to release the creativity in any videographer. ProDAD Heroglyph is a titling package and much more. Auto-animations, complex paths, and handwriting are all included. The plug-in also includes templates for trailers, stills to video, and for 3D video walls.

ProDAD VitaScene includes more than 600 effects templates to stamp a distinctive look on any production. It adds sophisticated visual moods and gives the editor stylish, dynamic transitions quickly and simply. Finally, ProDAD Mercalli is a remarkable software scene stabilizer. Shots grabbed on the fly will look as good as tripod scenes thanks to this native EDIUS plug-in.
