(businesspress24) - Grünwald, 25th of April 2017 — Today Grass Valley presents version 8.5 of EDIUS at the NAB Show in Las Vegas.

These are the most important new features included in the update to version 8.5:

• Support of H.265 HEVC Codec: EDIUS now supports the importing as well as the editing of H.265 material as used by e.g. the Samsung NX1, the latest DJI drones or the Panasonic GH5 camera when using its 6K photo mode.
• Metadata: EDIUS 8.5 accesses and incorporates more metadata from recorded material than previously – now also from recent Panasonic cameras such as the DC-GH5, AG-UX90 and AG-UX180.
• Metadata display: EDIUS 8 now shows the exact date and time of the recorded footage in the onscreen display also for Sony XAVC-S clips. The metadata can be shown in the onscreen display or burned into the video. Grass Valley has integrated this feature at the request of the German police, which uses hundreds of EDIUS work stations to evaluate video recordings.
• Adaptation for Avid Media Composer users changing to EDIUS: It is now possible to include a frame that is positioned at an out marker into the preview.
• Faster H.264 encoder: The speed at with H.264 based material is exported is improved for H.264/AVC, XAVC S, AVCHD and Blu-ray.
• Improved H.264 encoding quality: the already excellent quality of H.264 based material has yet again been improved.
• Export: Apart from the existing XAVC and XDCAM formats now also XAVC V1.2 QFHD Long 422 and XDCAM FHD 36M are supported.
• User interface: All parts of the user interface (e.g. QuickTitler, effects pallet, Lay outer) are now optimised for UHD screens and high resolution laptop displays.
• Audio mixer: It is now possible to change the values for the volume and pan functions by entering the numbers manually.
• Primary colour correction: It is now possible to choose between “Display Light“ and “Scene Light”. The setting “Display Light” is the new default setting since version EDIUS 8.5.

• HDR support: The primary colour correction now supports the “High Dynamic Range” colour spaces BT. 2020 PQ and BT.2100 PQ.
• Media management: the media content management tool Mync included in EDIUS can now export the storyboard as an XML list. It is possible to transfer all clips used in the storyboard. With this function it now becomes much easier to exchange Mync and EDIUS projects on different editing systems. The XML file can also be easily imported into other software which supports Final Cut Pro 7 XML. In addition, the updated Mync version now also supports all new formats supported by EDIUS (such as H.265 HEVC, Canon C700 Raw), colour spaces (BT.2020/BT.2100 PC) and metadata. Mync also receives the improved H.264 encoder.
