Canopus Edius NX w/HDV*
Powerful Hardware for the Ultimate Realtime Editing Experience

The move to high definition video production impacts computing power requirements and realtime editing performance, proportionally. Although HDV and HD video can be edited on today's systems with a basic OHCI FireWire interface, the realtime editing performance is strictly limited, and lacks any true full resolution video output for preview.

The EDIUS NX with HD Expansion Kit system features advanced hardware that provides editors with video acquisition and output capabilities including high-quality, full resolution component HD/SD video output as well as hardware-accelerated line scaling and video overlay, for ultimate realtime HD/SD editing, effects and compositing performance.

Complete HDV Editing

The ability to view compositions accurately, while editing HDV, is critical. Only an HD monitor can faithfully display HDV output modes including 1080i and 720p. EDIUS NX with HD Expansion Kit features component HD video output for full-quality, full-resolution, realtime monitor output of 720p, 1080p and 1080i HD video. Additionally, the HD Expansion Kit module features unbalanced stereo RCA audio output connectors and incorporates audio processing circuitry to ensure perfect audio and video synchronization during playback.

EDIUS NX with HD Expansion Kit includes capture support for HDV cameras and decks including Sony's HDR-FX1 camera. EDIUS NX with HD Expansion Kit provides direct capture support from HDV devices such as Sony's HDR-FX1, either using the native HDV MPEG-2 transport stream format or the Canopus HQ codec. Also included is an export-to-tape utility for edited sequences, and supports full device control options for Sony, Canon and JVC HDV devices.

Hardware-based Video Overlay

Unlike OHCI-based editing systems, EDIUS NX with HD Expansion Kit processes video overlay using hardware. Video overlay data is written to the graphics card using Direct Memory Access (DMA). This means a lesser load is placed on the CPU during editing and realtime playback, and results in better realtime performance using the same CPU.

Hardware-based Line Scaling for HD Component Output

When using EDIUS NX with HD Expansion Kit with the Expansion Kit, hardware-based line scaling is used to convert the native 1440x1080 resolution of HDV and HQ to 1920x1080, for full-resolution HD component output. With other editing systems, line scaling is handled by the CPU, which adds additional load and ultimately restricts realtime editing performance.
