Leitch Empowers Revolutionary "Live Non-Linear Multi-Camera Editing" with VelocityQ (10/12/2004)

Leitch Technology Corporation (TSX:LTV) announced today a revolutionary new solution for multi-camera editing based on the award-winning VelocityQ(tm) non-linear editing system.

VelocityQ's unique "Live Non-Linear Multi-Camera Editing" paradigm combines VelocityQ's fully integrated, full-quality 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, running the Leitch QIngest(tm) software on the same Quattrus(tm) hardware used by VelocityQ, 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. Using VelocityQ's multi-camera editing functionality, up to four sources can be "switched" interactively 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, colour correction, effects and more - can be performed in the timeline. Since ingest and editing can be done at full quality, no recapturing is necessary after editing; the program is immediately ready for final output.

"The revolutionary 'Live Non-Linear Multi-Camera' capabilities of VelocityQ combine the efficiency and immediacy of a live switcher with the non-destructive editing flexibility of an NLE," said Brad Nogar, Leitch vice president and general manager for post production. "This can be an incredible time-saver for multi-camera productions, as editing can begin immediately during shooting, without waiting for ingest of multiple camera angles to complete. There's no faster or easier way to edit a multi-camera shoot and have it ready quickly for final output."

VelocityQ combines the Quattrus multi-stream, real-time hardware with the powerful, flexible and intuitive Velocity(tm) software, forming a tightly integrated, multi-layer NLE solution. VelocityQ delivers an exceptional combination of real-time power, quality and affordability, featuring real-time, full-quality playback of four streams of compressed or uncompressed video, up to six graphics streams, and optionally two or four channels of 3D DVE. VelocityQ is available as fully integrated, "ready to run" turnkey solutions, or as boardset-and-software bundles for installation into a WindowsR 2000 or WindowsR XP workstation.
