The EDIUS Pro 7 Nonlinear Editing Software empowers editors with real-time workflows in all resolutions. With no rendering, editors can have a non-stop creative process leading to fast editing and an engaging finished product. Low-resolution proxy editing enables organizations to extend the lifecycle of older desktop and laptop systems with proxy-only editing capabilities, as well as bringing editing to the existing desktop PCs. This is especially beneficial in newsrooms where desktop computers may not be equipped with the latest processors or significant memory.
