Guys this is a killer solution for HDV. I know most of us have become pretty spoiled by the productivity we achieve with DV Storms, RTX100s or just NLE software (Vegas, Xpress Pro, Premiere Pro) running on a screaming fast workstation. With Edius NX for HDV we will not have to compromise, yet we'll be taking full advantage of the increased ressolution and color quality of the new HDV cams!!
At DV Expo a couple of weeks ago I soent lots of time in the Canopus booth playing with and getting demos of Edius NX HDV. I was blown away by how smooth the editing was. Edius is growing up into a much more robust NLE, and the folks at Canopus seem to be paying close attention to what features the users want. It's just going to kepp getting better.
Canopus has their own HD codec they call HQ. The quality is superb on all levels. From keying to special FX to titling and compositing.
