What we think:

EDIUS 7 is a big release:

  • Support for 3rd party hardware, grading software and new 4K codecs 
  • New 64-bit architecture
  • Enhanced editing tools

It's now even faster and even slicker than ever. It's no wonder that it's the number one NLE in large parts of the world.

"Handles virtually any format, easy and intuitive interface, easy to install and run, stable... EDIUS Pro 7 is not only easy to learn, and easy to use, but all the buttons are precisely where you would guess they should be."



EDIUS® Pro 7 is the fastest and most versatile real time editing software—4K, 3D, HD, SD, and almost any format from 24x24 to 4Kx2K, all on the same timeline, even in nested sequences, all in real time. And now EDIUS has partnered with Blackmagic Design to support its PCIe DeckLink 4K Extreme and Thunderbolt-based UltraStudio 4K capture and playback devices for the most affordable 4K workflows.

EDIUS Pro 7 means more resolutions, unlimited tracks, and real-time editing for the ability to Edit Anything, Anywhere. EDIUS Pro 7 is the perfect finishing tool for broadcast news, newsmagazine content, and studio programs, as well as corporate, documentary, and 4K theatrical productions.

That's why broadcasters, production houses, media departments, and video professionals worldwide choose Grass Valley® EDIUS for multiformat editing.

Limitless: With no limitations to the number of audio, video, graphics, and title tracks, EDIUS Pro 7 can handle the most complex projects, even in 4K.

Plays well with others: EDIUS Pro 7 is now open to third-party input and output hardware from Blackmagic Design, with support for Matrox and AJA Video Systems hardware scheduled for Q4 2013. EDIUS Pro 7 also supports EDL project import/export colour correction interchange with DaVinci Resolve for a new colour grading workflow.

What's high can be low: Low-resolution proxy editing mode enables older desktop and laptop systems with the power of EDIUS Pro 7. That means you don't need the latest and greatest system to edit with EDIUS Pro 7.

Transcode this: With unrivaled real-time video transcoding technology, EDIUS Pro 7 gives you the ability to convert between 4K, HD, and SD resolutions, aspect ratios, and frame rates—all in real time.

Technology Guides

EDIUS 7: New Features

EDIUS 7 is a 10-bit non-linear editing software programme which focuses on fast, real-time, multi-layer editing. As an editor that does not require file transcoding to an intermediate format, EDIUS is ideal for time-critical fast-turnaround production. Version 7 focuses on these core values of the software: image quality, speed of operation, compatibility, reliability and ease-of-use.

Image quality

New video formats and 4K codecs now supported

EDIUS 7 extends native 4K format support enabling editors to deliver the highest image quality. New codecs and formats include:

  • 4K M-JPEG for Canon 1DC
  • XAVC Intra 4K for the new generation of Sony PMW-F5/F55 cameras
  • Ultra-Intra 200 and AVC-Long G, for support of Panasonic’s new camcorders
  • New exporter writes H.264 4K files at up-to 200Mb/s


New support for 3rd party hardware and software

  • EDIUS now supports 3rd party hardware

Initially input / output boards from Blackmagic Design and Matrox (monitoring only) are supported, with AJA systems coming soon. Devices such as the all-powerful DeckLink 4K Extreme, the flexible MX02 and DeckLink Mini Monitor gives EDIUS users huge flexibility in the way they configure their workstations.

Blackmagic support includes:

DaVinci Resolve: professional grading and coloring round-trip with Resolve is also now built-in, with EDL importing and exporting. 

For high quality ingest, real-time monitoring and deck control, EDIUS 7 is compatible with a large range of existing Grass Valley HDMI, SDI and analogue capture and output devices.

Speed of Operation & Reliability

Complete new architecture

As EDIUS 7 is now 64-bit, it handles large amounts of RAM efficiently, giving power users more robust and slicker experience than ever. Support for the latest 64-bit versions of Windows gives editors access to the most reliable and efficient platform.

Ease of Use

New core editing tools

With EDIUS, core editing functions are handled efficiently: users do not have to jump in and out of different software to access routine tools and effects. EDIUS 7 therefore now includes:

  • Improved Gaussian blur filters
  • Enhanced loudness monitoring
  • Faster image and animation importing
