About the Grass Valley STORM 3G PCI Express Card

The Grass Valley STORM 3G PCI Express Card with EDIUS Pro 7 NLE Software is for video professionals who want a single solution for both SDI-based editing and tapeless workflows, with the capability to preview their projects on affordable HDMI monitors. Based on the PCI Express form factor, the STORM 3G solution includes EDIUS Pro 7 nonlinear editing software, 3G HD-SDI inputs and outputs and an HDMI output for full-resolution, real-time preview monitoring. Embedded HDMI audio provides high-quality audio monitoring. It is a premium, high-powered solution for multi-format editing. Timecode input and output are supported via the RS-422 port for accurate editing from field logs. The reference input supports both analog blackburst and tri-level sync. External VTR ingest can be controlled via the RS-422 port and the optional VTR emulation software may be used to control the EDIUS Pro 7 software like a VTR for direct playout from the workstation.

The STORM 3G board can handle any mix of HD and SD video content; unlimited video, audio, title and graphics layers; and any combination of real-time effects. It also offers real-time, full-resolution, full-quality HD and SD video outputs.

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.
