Leitch Technology has announced a new solution for multi-camera editing based on its VelocityQ non-linear editing system.
VelocityQ’s “live non-linear multi-camera editing” platform combines the system’s integrated, multi-camera editing capabilities with the ability to simultaneously edit and record from multiple input sources. Multi-camera programs can be edited “interactively” from the live input feeds, which are also recorded separately to disk. The editor can then make further edits and refinements to the program — including moving and changing edit points between camera angles — after the initial live edit is completed.
Each live input source is captured by a dedicated ingest station. These ingest stations run the Leitch QIngest software on the same Quattrus hardware used by VelocityQ to record the live feeds to a shared storage area network. A complete VelocityQ editing system, also utilizing the same shared storage, can begin editing these sources immediately, even as they are still being recorded.
Up to four sources can be “switched” as they are viewed simultaneously in real time. Once recording is complete, edit points can be changed or refined before applying them to VelocityQ’s timeline with cuts or transitions. As the complete source material from each camera has been recorded, further editing and finishing — including transitions, color correction, effects and more — can be performed in the timeline. Because ingest and editing can be done at full quality, no recapturing is necessary after editing and the program is immediately ready for final output.
