Grass Valley EDIUS Workgroup 8 gives you the ability to edit in real time as a standalone user in the field or within network connected production infrastructures. Grass Valley EDIUS Workgroup 8 is the perfect finishing tool for broadcast news, news magazine content and studio programs, as well as organizational, documentary and 4K theatrical productions. With more creative options and real-time, no-render editing of all popular SD, HD and even 4K formats, EDIUS Workgroup 8 is the most versatile and fastest nonlinear editing software available.
Grass Valley EDIUS Workgroup 8 from Grass Valley gives you real-time editing of multiple formats and frame-rates all on the same timeline. EDIUS Workgroup 8 has optional modules to connect to the GV STRATUS video production & content management system and edit-in-place on a Grass Valley K2 SAN. Together with GV STRATUS, EDIUS Workgroup 8 introduces powerful speed and flexibility for broadcast, post-production and multiplatform environments.
The combination of EDIUS Workgroup 8 fast and easy-to-use editing capabilities, together with GV STRATUS asset management features, allows multiple users to work simultaneously on the same story, sharing media and metadata for super-fast turnaround. Not only can news organizations get their stories to air faster, but with GV STRATUS workflow engine and import/export features, stories can be sent to multiple delivery platforms, such as the web and mobile devices, as soon as they have been edited with EDIUS Workgroup 8 Digital Edition. At the touch of a button, EDIUS Workgroup 8 users can publish their finished edits to various destinations at once, be it playout servers, content management systems, social media and a digital library.
Post-production & Web Publishing
For film production, promo creation, documentaries and short- or long-form programming, the combination of EDIUS Workgroup 8 and GV STRATUS adds extra value. Efficient content management, workflow automation and storage optimization, including user permissions, are just a few of the features introduced by the tight integration of both applications. Finished productions can be automatically uploaded to a webpage or video-on-demand location, again with a simple click of a button invoking workflow rules that automate the process of uploading media to a pre-set destination. A producer or editor could even be working from their home office and access content via a wide area network connection to the production facility. This allows not only searching, streaming and viewing remote assets, but even remote editing with low-resolution proxy copies or transferring high-resolution media to local storage before editing, then conforming back to the shared K2 storage at the production facility for final review and packaging.
More Formats, Better Workflows
Includes native support for all commonly used file formats, including Sony XDCAM, Panasonic P2 and Canon XF and EOS movie formats. For post-production work you can use Grass Valley high performance intermediate 10-bit codec, HQX, or the Avid DNxHD codec. Where EDIUS Workgroup 8 really shines, however, is with its fast and comprehensive implementation of newer file formats, for example Sony XAVC (Intra/Long GOP)/XAVC S, Panasonic AVC-Ultra, and Canon XF-AVC. With EDIUS Workgroup 8 Digital Edition, you will always be able to edit, whatever format comes your way. For even more power and creative control during editing, EDIUS Workgroup 8 supports a number of third-party software plug-ins for additional video and audio effects, keying, stabilization and multicam syncing. A list of third-party titling software and effects plug-ins is available on our website.
64-bit & 4K
Designed as a native 64-bit application for Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1, EDIUS Workgroup 8 takes full advantage of up to 512 GB system memory (for Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise and Professional) or up to 192 GB (for Windows 7 Ultimate, Enterprise, and Professional) for super-intensive media operations, especially layering, 3D, multicam and multi-track 4K editing. EDIUS Workgroup 8 is optimized for Intels Quick Sync Video, a feature of all current Core processors (Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3) and especially useful for video editing because it significantly accelerates MPEG-2 and H.264 encoding. EDIUS Workgroup 8 has been further enhanced to use Intel Quick Sync Video for H.264 decoding to give you super-smooth H.264 playback, including 4K.
