VelocityQ 9.1 adds direct support for DV25 and DVCPRO content from Panasonic’s P2 series of solid-state recording products.
Leitch is now shipping version 9.1 of VelocityQ, its SD NLE system. The upgrade features new tools for color correction, collaborative workflows, audio processing, and broadened media format support.
VelocityQ combines with the Quattrus NLE hardware, forming a tightly integrated, multi-layer, SD NLE solution. It features real-time, full-quality playback of four streams of compressed or uncompressed video, up to six graphics streams, and optionally two or four channels of 3-D DVE.
The system adds direct support for DV25 and DVCPRO content from Panasonic’s P2 series of products. New user profile functions and a “detect ‘n collect” feature aids the multi-user collaborative workflow, while a new interactive editing paradigm boosts timeline efficiency by letting users adjust clips without stopping real-time playback. A new floating DVE window and enhanced effects keyframer will allow users to polish and refine DVE animations.
The upgrade is available as fully integrated turnkey solutions, or as boardset-and-software bundles for installation into qualified Microsoft Windows XP Professional workstations.
Upgrades to version 9.1 are available for existing VelocityQ users through authorized Leitch post-production resellers. U.S. customers can also order VelocityQ 9.1 software upgrades directly from the Leitch e-store at www.leitch.com.
