Quick Overview

Grass Valley STORM 3G hardware kit for use with EDIUS 6 or EDIUS Pro 6.5.



Manufacturer Part Number: 600889

NEW: The STORM 3G and STORM 3G Elite editing platforms are both supported via the EDIUS timeline with stereoscopic 3D I/O through a single 3G SDI source and/or dual 3G SDI signals.

Among the features of the STORM 3G solution are reference input support for blackburst and tri-level sync, machine control for external VTR ingest, and optional VTR emulation software that lets you control an EDIUS Workstation like a VTR for direct playout from the workstation.

STORM 3G also empowers you with a constantly-synched, full-resolution preview of effects and content directly from the EDIUS timeline.

STORM 3G is designed for video professionals who want one solution for both SDI-based editing and tapeless workflows, with the capability to preview their projects on affordable HDMI monitors. Based on the PCI Express form factor, the STORM 3G solution includes EDIUS nonlinear editing software, 3G HD-SDI inputs and outputs, and an HDMI output for full-resolution, real-time preview monitoring. Embedded HDMI audio provides high-quality audio monitoring. Its a premium, high-powered solution for multi-format editing. Timecode input and output is supported via the RS-422 port for accurate editing from field logs. The reference input supports both analog blackburst and tri-level sync. External VTR ingest can be controlled via the RS-422 port and the optional VTR emulation software may be used to control the EDIUS software like a VTR for direct playout from the workstation.

The STORM 3G board can handle any mix of high- and standard-definition (HD and SD) video content; unlimited video, audio, title, and graphics layers; and any
combination of real-time effects. It also offers real-time, full-resolution, full-quality HD and SD video outputs.

An optional timecode in/reference out board takes a linear timecode source via the BNC connector and provides two reference outputs-blackburst or tri-level
sync-providing a means to synchronize both the STORM 3G and an external device, such as a source deck, from a single timecode source.
