Leitch Launches VelocityHD

At NAB2004, Leitch Technology will introduce VelocityHD, a format-flexible hi-def version of its Velocity NLE system.

The heart of VelocityHD is the Altitude hardware that features full-quality, online playback of two HD video streams, two dynamic HD graphics streams, and true dual-stream, real-time HD transitions and effects. This enables interactive full-quality feedback on the HD monitor while keyframing transitions and effects. Altitude supports 1080i, 24p and 720p frame formats at all common frame rates, with compressed and uncompressed footage within a project. Audio is supported through embedded SDI and discrete AES/EBU I/O, plus unbalanced audio monitoring.

The optional A3DX 3D DVE module adds one channel of realtime high definition 3D DVE and four channels of real-time standard def 3D effects. The system, which will be demonstrated at NAB2004 will ship this summer and will be offered as a fully integrated turnkey system or as a hardware/software bundle for installation into Windows XP Professional workstations.
