EdiusThis time Grass Valley released new integration of Apple’s FCP into the GV line of professional solutions. FCP will now mount directly on a GV K2 server, supporting lighting fast I/O and editing. The full FCP GUI can be supported making new users immediately comfortable with the totally professional installation.

The GV EDIUS 5l1 HD editing platform now provides new conform/render features using the K2 server that increases the productivity of editors when working in a K2 shared storage area network (SAN) environment and using Grass Valley Aurora 7.0 and EDIUS 5.1 (HD) editing workstations. The new PC server is ideal for fast-paced, multi-client production environments developing a wide variety of content from multiple SD and HD sources.

The new Grass Valley EDIUS XRE (eXternal Rendering Engine) server comes as a turnkey system and lets editors request that a project created with EDIUS systems in an Aurora or K2 Production Storage environment be rendered automatically on a separate dedicated workstation while they go on to the next job.

This process eliminates any delay or tying up a valuable edit station while having to wait for a project to be rendered. Serving as a unique and powerful conform server, the EDIUS XRE accepts the various full-resolution project elements and, by selecting “XRE export” on the EDIUS timeline, immediately and automatically creates finished files in the background while the editors go on to the next project.
