Leitch Introduces New Lower-cost Model of Award-Winning VelocityQ(tm) NLE
July 30, 2004

by -- Leitch Technology Corporation

Leitch Technology Corporation announced today the
immediate availability of the VelocityQ(tm) 0x4, a new low-cost model of
the
industry award-winning VelocityQ multi-stream non-linear editing system.

VelocityQ 0x4 becomes the entry-level model of Leitch's VelocityQ
standard-definition post production editing family, alongside the
existing
VelocityQ 2x4 and VelocityQ 4x4 models. VelocityQ 0x4 combines the
powerful, flexible and intuitive Velocity® software with the
Quattrus(tm)
multi-stream real-time hardware, forming a tightly integrated, advanced
multi-layer NLE solution that delivers an exceptional combination of
real-time power, quality and affordability. VelocityQ 0x4 features
guaranteed real-time, full-quality playback of four streams of video -
in
any combination of compressed or uncompressed - and up to six graphics
streams.
VelocityQ harnesses this power into an intuitive, flexible and
customizable
interface that makes even the most complex editing tasks easy. The
comprehensive feature set includes integrated, full-quality four-camera
multicam editing; 3- and 4-point editing; real-time filters such as
color
correction and speed changes; hundreds of customizable real-time
transitions; timeline integration with eyeon's(tm) included Digital
Fusion
DFX+(tm) compositing software; optional OMF and AAF interoperability;
and
the unique EyeCon View(tm) timeline interface tool. The powerful Virtual
Tape File System(tm) also makes VelocityQ 0x4 ideal as a digital disk
recorder or graphics output platform.
VelocityQ 0x4 provides a full complement of flexible professional AV I/O
including component, composite and Y/C analog video, as well as balanced
and
unbalanced analog audio. SDI video I/O with AES/EBU digital audio is
available as an option. DV I/O is supported through OHCI-compliant
IEEE-1394
interface cards. An optional BOB-5400 breakout box consolidates all of
these
connections in a convenient rack-mount form factor and adds such
features
such as RS-232 to RS-422 conversion for device control.
A choice of optional two-channel (Q3DX2(tm)) or four-channel (Q3DX4(tm))
3D
DVE modules gives VelocityQ 0x4 the same powerful effects capabilities
as
the VelocityQ 2x4 and VelocityQ 4x4 models, respectively. These optional
modules provide real-time 3D effects - including perspectives, warps and
rotations - plus real-time masks, chroma/luma keying and additional
effects.
"The broadening of the VelocityQ line with the new VelocityQ 0x4 allows
editors to take advantage of our guaranteed real-time multi-stream
performance, while choosing the level of effects capabilities that best
meets their needs," said Brad Nogar, Leitch vice president and general
manager for post production. "The lower cost of entry to the VelocityQ
family now also makes multi-stream non-linear editing accessible to an
even
wider range of post production professionals."
VelocityQ 0x4 is available as a boardset-and-software bundle for
installation into a Windows® 2000 or Windows® XP workstation. Leitch
Quattrus cards and DVE modules are also available on an OEM basis to
third
party developers wanting to integrate high-quality, real-time video I/O
hardware into their own products and applications.
