Thomson has launched a global, multi-city road show that provides onsite demonstrations of its new Thomson Grass Valley HDSTORM I/O board, which is compatible with the latest version of the company’s EDIUS nonlinear editing software.
The hands-on tour is being hosted by authorized resellers and will reach more than 100 cities nationally and internationally. There will be stops in Atlanta and New York City later this month, plus visits to Houston and New Orleans next month and Los Angeles in December.
The company’s EDIUS version 5 editing software comes bundled with more than $1,000 worth of third-party plug-ins and software, and it offers an end-to-end native workflow using the JPEG 2000 compression format.
The HDSTORM is a PCI Express board with HDMI-based input/output capability with built-in Canopus HQ hardware codec. It includes the latest version of EDIUS nonlinear editing software (Version 5) to helps users transition from SD to HD. An optional I/O bay provides additional HDMI input/output as well as analog video and audio.
