Canopus debuts PCI Express version of Edius NLE

Canopus now offers a new Edius NX real-time mixed HD/SD video editing system based on PCI Express (PCIe) standard.

By supporting PCI Express slots common on the new dual-core capable platforms, the PCI Express version of Edius NX makes the speed and versatility of dedicated NLE hardware affordable to both SD and HD editors. Since Edius NX offers native editing and real-time processing of a variety of SD and HD formats, editors who haven’t made the move to HD can use Edius NX now, and grow with it when they finally do make the transition.

At the heart of the Edius NX system is Edius Pro nonlinear editing software, which provides real-time, mixed format editing of uncompressed SD, HD, HDV, DV, MPEG-2, and MPEG-1 formats. Edius Pro delivers increased quality and real-time performance through the company’s variable-bitrate Canopus HQ codec.

Edius NX with PCI Express compatibility includes real-time HQ batch capture from 1080i and 720p HDV cameras and decks.

When combined with the company’s HD Expansion Kit, Edius NLEs on the Windows platform deliver full frame-rate real-time HD playback from the timeline directly to an external HD video display.
