Grass Valley has announced version 7.3 of its Edius Pro and Elite multiformat nonlinear editing software. This new version includes I/O support for the Matrox MXO2 LE, MXO2 Rack, Mojito MAX and MXO2 Mini editing devices.
New features include multi-channel audio monitoring for clip preview, Sony XAVC format export, lower bit-rate audio support for MP4 output, AAF exchange with DaVinci Resolve and audio monitoring while capturing with third-party I/O hardware.
The ability to support Matrox expands the software’s capabilities. Matrox MXO2 editing devices are I/O products that are used in various places including laptop and desktop computers, studios, OB vans and on set. They can connect to the editing computer via PCIe or ExpressCard/34 adapters.
Other features include 96kHz/192kHz audio support, the ability to apply the Layouter as a separate (transform) filter, Sony PMW-1000 export ability, XAVC S timecode support (AS100V), Panasonic AVC-Ultra additional format support (AJ-PX5000), Panasonic LUMIX GH4 4K file support and After Effects plug-in Bridge update (with support for Sapphire presets).
“With the added support for Matrox I/O, this really extends our reach in providing our EDIUS customers a choice in which hardware platform they choose to work with,” said Mike Cronk, vp of marketing at Grass Valley.
EDIUS 7.3 is now available for download by registered users on the Grass Valley website. EDIUS Pro will automatically detect the update and inform users of its availability. EDIUS Elite will require manual updates.
