  • MONTREAL
  • --

With version 8.3 of EDIUS Pro and EDIUS Workgroup, Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, is introducing a number of new features that will make video editing more productive and more creative. The new version brings high-quality slow motion, more DVD/Blu-ray burning options, and other new usability improvements to all EDIUS Pro and Workgroup 8 users.

“Our customers choose EDIUS because they know that it’s a smart investment that will keep up with their needs as technology advances,” said Steve Wise, director of product marketing, Grass Valley. “We are constantly adding features and improving performance in response to feedback from users, which means that the software never falls behind the needs of the market. And the permanent license structure is such that existing users have access to the incremental upgrades within a version at no additional charge.”

Specific improvements for EDIUS Pro 8.3 and EDIUS Workgroup 8.3 include:

  • High-quality slow motion using optical flow interpolation
  • Bin now shows timecode information
  • Many more “Burn-to-disc” options for DVD and Blu-ray
  • More proxy resolution options
  • GV Browser improvements
  • GUI improvements
  • F-Log (Fujifilm) color space

EDIUS is available in two versions—EDIUS Pro 8 is targeted at the professional production user, while EDIUS Workgroup 8 is aimed at editors working within a broadcast-based, collaborative editing environment that might require GV STRATUS or third-party MAM connectivity, or to edit-in-place on K2 server/storage.
