[prMac.com] Boston, Mass - Media 100, a leading provider of advanced editing systems for the corporate, broadcast, postproduction, and new media industries, today announced that Media 100 Suite, next-generation Media 100 software with MultiClip Editing and Boris RED, is now available. Media 100 Suite adds new support for Matrox MXO2 for portable, broadcast-quality input/output, monitoring, and up/down/cross conversion. Media 100 Suite also includes a new VoiceOver Tool for audio recording direct to the Media 100 timeline.
Media 100 Suite New Feature Highlights
* MultiClip Editing. Media 100 Suite's new MultiClip Editing feature facilitates real-time editing of multiple video and audio sources in a familiar, easy-to-use interface. A camera can be added to an existing MultiClip as its source media becomes available, allowing editors to begin cutting a multicam shoot faster than ever before. Cameras can be synced via timecode, sync marks, or in-points. When syncing via timecode, additional footage can even be assigned to an existing camera - extremely helpful in situations where a camera has been stopped to change tapes or batteries.
* VoiceOver Tool. Media 100 Suite's new VoiceOver Tool allows direct-to-timeline audio recording while playing back timeline audio and video. Primarily designed for recording narration, the VoiceOver Tool leverages Media 100 Suite's new MultiClip architecture to allow for multiple takes nested inside a single audio clip in the timeline. VoiceOvers can be recorded as stereo pairs or separate channels allowing different narrators to record in a single take. Other possibilities include simultaneously recording dialogue to separate channels or laying down a live music track.
* Matrox MXO2 Support. Media 100 Suite adds new support for Matrox MXO2, a portable I/O device that delivers broadcast-quality input/output, monitoring, and up/down/cross conversion. Compatible with MacBook Pros and Mac Pros, MXO2 weighs under 3.5 pounds and lets editors work seamlessly in any Media 100-supported format. For those looking for a traditional rack-mounted installation, Media 100 Suite also supports the MXO2 Rack. The Matrox MAX option for accelerated encoding to H.264 direct from Media 100 is also supported.
* Other Media 100 Suite Improvements include the ability to export Media 100 timelines to Adobe After Effects CS4, support for Apple's new Final Cut Studio 3 release, improved Apple Color integration, full support of QuickTime timecode tracks, export of timecode "burn-in", support for 24-bit audio import, and the ability to output RP188 timecode with supported AJA video I/O cards.
Media 100 Suite supports AJA's KONA 3X/3, KONA LH/LHe, KONA LHi, and KONA LS/LSe video I/O cards, Matrox MXO2 and MXO2 Rack, and the Media 100 HDx. FireWire I/O and Panasonic P2 import are also supported.
Media 100 Suite supports PowerPC and Intel-based Macs.
