When an editor has to wait for technology, creativity suffers. That doesn’t happen with EDIUS Pro 8. EDIUS Pro 8 means more formats and more resolutions
in real time for the ability to Edit Anything, Fast. EDIUS Pro 8 is the perfect finishing tool for professional productions, including documentary and 4K theatrical productions.

With more creative options and real-time, no-render editing of all popular SD, HD and even 4K formats, EDIUS Pro 8 is THE most versatile and fastest nonlinear editing software available.

EDIUS Pro 8 from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, gives you real-time editing of multiple formats and framerates all on the same timeline. That means you can edit  faster… and make the time to be more creative.

More Formats, Better Workflows
EDIUS Pro 8 includes native support for all commonly used file formats, including Sony XDCAM, Panasonic P2 and Canon XF and EOS movie 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 is standard in the Workgroup version).

Where EDIUS Pro 8 really shines, however, is with its fast and comprehensive implementation of newer file formats, for example Sony XAVC (Intra/ Long GOP)/XAVC S, Panasonic AVC-Ultra, and Canon XF-AVC. With EDIUS Pro 8, you’ll always beable to edit, whatever format comes your way. 

You Buy It, You Keep It — No Subscription Fees

Unlike other NLE software providers, Grass Valley believes that you should own what you pay for. With EDIUS Pro 8, there are no ongoing subscription fees.When you  purchase EDIUS Pro 8, you get a permanent license with free updates throughout the life of EDIUS Pro 8.x.

Plus, you can install EDIUS Pro 8 on two machines, soyou can have it with you on your laptop (using proxy mode on a less powerful notebook, if needed), as well on a more powerful desktop machine. That way, youcan take your edit suite on location with you. 

64-bit & 4K 
Designed as a native 64-bit application for Windows7 and Windows 8/8.1, EDIUS Pro 8 takes full advantage of up to 512 GB system memory (for Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise and Professional) or up to 192 GB (forWindows 7 Ultimate, Enterprise, and Professional) for super-intensive media operations, especially layering, 3D, multicam and multi-track 4K editing.

EDIUS Pro 8 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 andH.264 encoding. EDIUS Pro 8 has been further enhanced to use Intel Quick Sync Video for H.264 decoding to give you super-smooth H.264 playback, including 4K.

“EDIUS allows us to cut the shows fast and efficiently, yet the viewer thinks we’re switching live. That’s what makes me the most proud. When a fan who attended the show enjoys the video, I know we’ve done something right.”
