Grass Valley HDSPARK Pro with EDIUS 7 - See What They See...Before They See It

Light a SPARK on Quality. You have high standards. Before you hand over your project, it must be thoroughly reviewed and evaluated to ensure it meets your required level of quality.

With HDSPARK Pro, you'll have an accurate audio and video monitoring and quality control solution, even when working within a file-based, networked environment that doesn't require ingested baseband video or audio.

Preview in real-time: With a full version of EDIUS Pro nonlinear editing software, and an HD/SD-SDI output board that supports full-resolution, you'll preview content in real-time, so you can stay on task and properly evaluate your project before it goes out the door.

Stay synched: With HDSPARK Pro, you'll be constantly synched to a full-resolution preview of effects and content directly from the EDIUS timeline, so you can eliminate errors and miscommunication.

Easily handle mixed formats: When you use HDSPARK Pro, you'll handle any mixture of high- and standard-definition content. Plus, you'll have unlimited video, audio, title, and graphics layers, and any combination of real-time effects to raise the bar on quality.

HDSPARK PRO is bundled with EDIUS 7.
