Leitch Technology Corporation, a provider of SD/HD solutions for the professional digital video industry, has announced that version 9.1 of VelocityQ, Leitch's standard-definition, post production non-linear editing system, is now shipping. Version 9.1 of VelocityQ features new tools for color correction, collaborative workflows, and audio processing, plus broadened media format support--including direct support for DV25 and DVCPRO content from Panasonic's P2 series of products--and a wide range of user interface enhancements. For more details about the new features in VelocityQ 9.1, visit www.leitch.com/VQ9.
VelocityQ combines the Velocity software with the Quattrus multi-stream, real-time non-linear editing hardware, forming an integrated, multi-layer, standard-definition NLE solution. VelocityQ features real-time, full-quality playback of four streams of compressed or uncompressed video, up to six graphics streams, and optionally two or four channels of 3D DVE, according to Leitch. VelocityQ 9.1 is available as fully integrated, "ready to run" turnkey solutions, or as boardset-and-software bundles for installation into qualified Microsoft Windows XP Professional workstations. Upgrades to version 9.1 are available for existing VelocityQ users through authorized Leitch post production resellers. U.S. customers can also order VelocityQ 9.1 software upgrades directly from the Leitch e-Store at www.leitch.com
