IBC 2007: D.A.V.I.D. Introduces New DigaCut Video Editors

(PresseBox) (München, ) With DigaCut ST (Single Track) and DigaCut MT (Multiple Tracks), Munich based D.A.V.I.D. GmbH debuts its next generation of video editors. Both versions of DigaCut are designed for viewing content, making rough cuts and conducting simple editing tasks in the newsroom environment. Users can work selectively in low and high resolution modes with multiple file formats. Voice-overs can be added with punch-in/punch-out. Project data is stored in XML format. MXF formats are supported for import, editing and export. To streamline content exchange between video and audio producers (e.g., to give a radio journalist access to video sequences), the D.A.V.I.D. editors have a special feature: in addition to the standard video formats all broadcast audio formats are supported as well.

With DigaCut ST and DigaCut MT, D.A.V.I.D. enhances its portfolio of video solutions in the area of Media Production, presenting solutions to customers who are looking for quick and effective video editing of low and high resolution files in the editorial office. Both editors allow exporting EDLs and Web formats. Furthermore, DigaCut MT supports alpha graphics. While DigaCut ST is designed for small corrections and rough cuts, DigaCut MT is equipped with a multitrack video timeline, cross-fades and different editing modes. That way it can be used for the most demanding editing tasks in the newsroom.

Both editors have multitrack audio timelines and powerful features for the professional audio editing to simplify the convergence of radio and TV editing within an organization. All broadcast audio formats including linear and multi-channel audio (RF 64) are supported. Envelopes are displayed and inputs and outputs can be routed flexibly. For editing news functions like voice-overs, features like audio crossfades, audio auto duck and time stretching of audio and video are available.

The new video editors and the interaction with the DigaSystem® CMS as well as all the other broadcast solutions that D.A.V.I.D. has developed are available for demonstration at our IBC booth 7.631 in hall 7. To significantly shorten training and reduce start-up costs, the DigaCut user interface is designed to resemble the interfaces of D.A.V.I.D.'s well-respected audio editors.
