Telestream has announced availability of new products and features that expand the company's Final Cut support for Thomson Grass Valley disk-based cameras and media servers. The new Flip4Mac Infinity Component imports media from Thomson Grass Valley Infinity Series Digital Media Camcorders and REV PRO drives directly into Final Cut Pro editing systems. The company also announced new HD support for its existing Flip4Mac K2|Profile Component which enables file transfer between Thomson Grass Valley K2 and Profile professional media server systems and Final Cut Pro for editing. The new Flip4Mac Infinity Component imports MPEG-2 HD and DV25 SD media directly from Thomson Grass Valley REV PRO drives without transcoding the media file. The component produces a .mov file that is placed directly into the Final Cut project bin ready for editing. Users can import and browse REV PRO drives.
The Flip4Mac K2|Profile Component now adds import and export support for high definition HDV 1080 50/60i video files to existing support for standard definition IMX MPEG and DV video and uncompressed audio files. The component enables users to import files directly into Final Cut systems for editing, and then export files directly back to their Thomson Grass Valley servers or to a local file system.
Priced at $500 each, the Flip4Mac Infinity and K2|Profile Components are available immediately.
