Grass Valley HDSPARK with EDIUS 7 - Faster, Higher Quality Output

You need to edit in real-time, even with tapeless acquisition.

That's why we built Grass Valley HDSPARK—the ideal cost-effective solution for tapeless editing or working in your file-based, networked environment. HDSPARK's embedded HDMI audio and separate stereo RCA jacks give you the ability to preview full-resolution projects in real-time, using affordable HDMI monitors.

Sync up: HDSPARK's full-resolution preview of effects and content directly from the EDIUS timeline means you'll be blending real-time editing functionality with exceptional-quality audio monitoring capabilities, so your creative project can move forward quickly and efficiently.

Easily edit mixed formats: With HDSPARK, editing any mix of SD and HD resolution video content together in real-time is a snap. You'll have unlimited video, audio, title, and graphics layers, and any combination of real-time effects. Video and audio output stays perfectly in sync with editing windows, so you'll meet the precise editing and trimming needs of your project.

HDSPARK is bundled with EDIUS 7. EDIUS Pro 7 is the fastest and most versatile real time editing software—4K, 3D, HD, SD, and almost any format from 24x24 to 4Kx2K, all on the same timeline, even in nested sequences, all in real time. And now EDIUS has partnered with Blackmagic Design to support its PCIe DeckLink 4K Extreme and Thunderbolt-based UltraStudio 4K capture and playback devices for the most affordable 4K workflows. Windows 7 64-bit (Service Pack 1 or later) or Windows 8 64-bit is required for Edius 7.
