The Grass Valley EDIUS PRO 9 (Download) is the fastest and most versatile real time post production editing software. EDIUS Pro 9 includes native support for all commonly used file formats, including Sony XDCAM, Panasonic P2, Canon XF and EOS movie and RED formats. For post-production work you can use Grass Valley’s high-performance intermediate 10-bit codec, HQX, and there is an option available to add the Avid DNxHD codec (included as standard in the Workgroup version). Where EDIUS Pro 9 really shines is with its fast and comprehensive implementation of newer file formats, for example Sony XAVC (Intra/ Long GOP)/XAVC S, Panasonic AVC-Ultra, Canon XF-AVC and various Log/RAW files. With EDIUS Pro 9, you’ll always be able to edit, whatever format comes your way. You can edit any format from SD to 4K HDR all on the same timeline, even in nested sequences, all in real time. And now EDIUS has partnered with Blackmagic Design to support its PCIe DeckLink 4K Extreme and Thunderbolt-based UltraStudio 4K capture and playback devices for the most affordable 4K workflows.
With more creative options and real-time, no-render editing of all popular SD, HD and even 4K and HDR formats, EDIUS Pro 9 is THE most versatile and fastest nonlinear editing software available. EDIUS Pro 9 from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, gives you real-time editing of multiple formats and frame rates all on the same timeline. That means you can edit faster… and make the time to be more creative.
64-bit & 4K HDR
Designed as a native 64-bit application for Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, EDIUS Pro 9 takes full advantage of up to 512 GB system memory (for Windows 8.1/10 Enterprise and Pro) or up to 192 GB (for Windows 7 Ultimate, Enterprise, and Professional) for super-intensive media operations, especially layering, 3D, multicam and multitrack 4K editing.
EDIUS Pro 9 is optimized for Intel’s Quick Sync Video, a feature of all current Core processors (Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3) and especially useful for video editing because it significantly accelerates MPEG-2 and H.264 encoding. EDIUS Pro 9 has been further enhanced to use Intel Quick Sync Video for H.264 decoding to give you super-smooth H.264 playback, including 4K.
