MAXedit lets broadcasters, post-production facilities and studios easily set up multi-seat editing environments for news production and numerous other applications. Multiple concurrent users can access MAXedit from Webs browser to review, edit and render compressed and uncompressed SD/HD content, without using specialized workstations or needing to upgrade existing network infrastructure.
Over LANs or over the Internet, all editing operations are processed and executed on the MAXedit server.
The scalable editing solution fits into any workflow with its native support of tapeless, movie and sequence-of-images formats including Panasonic P2, Sony XDCAM, AVC HD, DVCPRO HD, MPEG-2/4 and DPX.
Maximum Throughput also introduced its new MAXcut, a companion tool to MAXedit to quickly assemble rough cuts and storyboards that can be readily refined by a craft editor in MAXedit.
MAXcut is designed for novice and professional editors alike.
“MAXedit delivers a substantial improvement over the dedicated workstations model by significantly reducing the capital and operational costs of editing, while enabling worldwide editing collaboration over the Internet,” said John Miller, Maximum Throughput’s vice president of worldwide sales and marketing.
