MONTREAL — Grass Valley (grassvalley.com), a Belden Brand, recently introduced a new version of its Edius nonlinear editing software. Edius 9.2 incorporates new features for increased speed, creativity and flexibility in broadcast studios. The latest version of the editing software remains tightly integrated with the GV Stratus video production and content management system to efficiently meet the needs of news broadcasters and includes several upgrades to support enhanced HDR editing.
New functions in Edius 9.2 include a new video scope supporting HDR (RGB Parade, "nits" display); color space list editing and the ability to add new color space (Arri Alexa Wide Gamut/Log C, DJI - D-Gamut/D-Log); monitor control for Eizo 4K HDR monitors; Mync HDR support (preview, storyboard, export); and Apple ProRes MXF and Sony Venice RAW import support. There have also been improvement of Canon Cinema RAW Light decoding performance and the addition of Matrox IO hardware driver V.8 support.
Also now available is the Edius Floating License for Pro and Workgroup versions, which allows management of multiple Edius licenses in a closed network environment. Users can install Edius to any number of machines and manage the number of Edius 9.2 clients running simultaneously in the network from a central license management server, so there is no need to manage multiple serial numbers.
Edius 9 users benefit from the V.9.2 update free of charge.
