Direct Linear Video Editing Turnkey System
A direct linear video editing system lets you enjoy the best of both worlds – linear and non-linear editing. Edirol’s DV-7DL series offers systems ready for both modes of video editing.
It claims to offer the first non-stop video editing system. It allows you to edit while playing back the video. The Single-menu editing feature allows you to undertake most of your editing from, yes, a single menu. Even A/B roll editing is supported. You get to edit two different video streams simultaneously in real time.
Software flexibility aside, you’ll be really impressed with the hardware specs of the machine. It covers everything a video editor needs and way beyond what a self-assembled powerful video editing computer could offer.
Apart from PS2, USB and Firewire ports, there are S-Video, Mic in, Composite Video and Audio I/O ports. The availability of these ports allows you to output your edited video to analog video decks and also DVD recorders.
All video editing tasks could be performed with the mouse keyboard and computer monitor. However, if you would like to get a feel of linear editing, a T-Bar Controller is included which among others include a jog shuttle dial and sliders to control audio level for some real time AV stream processing. Yes, you can also connect a TV to the system to get the feel of a broadcast station.
