HEURIS demos new Indie HD Toolkit for under $500

updated 02:25 pm EST, Sun January 4, 2004

Indie HD Toolkit

will demo its new Indie HD Toolkit in the JVC booth at Macworld. The Indie HD toolkit will feature a series of software tools developed by HEURIS that lets videographers bring footage, shot with the JY-HD10U camera, into Final Cut Pro. The new Indie HD toolkit replaces MPEG Power Professional HD with an easy-to-use XportHD MPEG-2 encoding software and will be available for under $500. It includues three software tools: the XtractorHDV import utility, the all-new XportHD MPEG-2 encoding software and the XtoHD player utility.

HEURIS has developed and bundled these tools to enable independent filmmakers utilizing JVC's JY-HD10U camera to easily transfer footage to the Final Cut Pro editing tool.



"Our goal is to make HD technology accessible for all video and filmmakers," said HEURIS President, Brian Quandt. "With this goal in mind, we made the encoding part of the process even easier with our new XportHD encoding software. This one-button HD encoding process makes HD delivery a snap. And the new price can't help but make this technology available to an even larger group of talented shooters and producers"



With the HEURIS Indie HD Toolkit, the process from HD acquisition to distribution is simple. Filmmakers shoot their footage with the JVC JY-HD10U cameras. Users can easily download HD video through XtractorHDV using a FireWire connection. The utility will import and convert the HDV into a format suitable for use by the Final Cut Pro. XportHD software encodes the footage into 720p MPEG-2 HD streams, while the XtoHD tool transfers the MPEG-2 streams to a D-VHS deck for playback or can record to D-VHS tape.




HEURIS will begin shipping the Indie HD Toolkit in February for $500. XtractorHDV and XtoHD can be purchased today for $200, and $100 respectively.
