Canopus Offers Realtime HDV Editing with EDIUS for HDV720P (29/7/2004)

Canopus today announced support for the new HDV format with the introduction of its EDIUS for HDV720P. EDIUS for HDV720P brings the powerful real-time editing capabilities of EDIUS to the HDV format, providing support for direct capture of footage from JVC's line of HDV digital camcorders, as well as real-time, multi-track native HDV editing. Canopus's powerful ProCoder 2.0 transcoding software is included with EDIUS for HDV720P to provide direct timeline output of native HDV files, as well as output to all popular video formats, making this a truly comprehensive solution for HDV editors.

"With the new wave of high-quality digital imagery, interest for HD content is growing rapidly among professionals all around the world. The HD camcorders have been released in the market, but support from software is also essential for the format to be widely accepted. We are looking forward to the support of Canopus software, known in the market for its NLE products, to help the acceptance of the HD format," said Masaharu Mannen, general manager, System Products Sales Division of JVC.

"We're excited to be part of the movement for affordable HD solutions," said Robert Sharp, general manager of Canopus Corporation. "JVC has taken the lead with its ground-breaking HDV camera and is already having a significant impact on moving this market forward."
