Grass Valley EDIUS Neo 3 is a subset of the fully featured EDIUS 6, specifically designed for educational and institutional users that do not need all of the features of EDIUS 6. The basic usability and editing operations are the same, making it the perfect tool for simple editing and learning about EDIUS operations. EDIUS Neo 3 offers native editing in various formats including AVCHD and DSLR movie (H.264 QuickTime) and provides a seamless real-time workflow, supporting mixing of all formats on the same timeline. EDIUS Neo 3 features real-time, multi-track, mixed format HD/SD editing, compositing, chromakeying, titling and Blu-ray Disc/DVD output capabilities.
EDIUS Neo 3 performs conversion between different HD and SD resolutions, aspect ratios and frame rate, all in real time. Edit 1080i clips on a 4:3 standard definition timeline, use NTSC together with PAL, or combine them all into a 720p24 project without wasting a single moment on conversion or rendering. EDIUS Neo 3 also features real-time playback and DV output of all effects, keyers, transitions and titles and can export projects to many devices including Blu-ray Disc, DVD and SD Cards.
EDIUS Neo 3 includes originally designed H.264 and MPEG decoders to allow editing clips in their native formats on the same timeline. EDIUS Neo 3 also includes the Grass Valley HQ codec for recording HD video to provide both high quality and high performance. The HQ codec is also perfect for exchanging video with compositing and graphic software by supporting an alpha channel and allowing data compression at the same time. EDIUS Neo 3 does not require any special hardware to work-it can run on a laptop as well as a desktop system and can input/output video from any generic OHCI hardware.
