Imagine's HD-VU 1.0 previews just out of camera video

updated 12:40 am EDT, Fri July 8, 2011

App grabs video clips, displays metadata, timecode

Imagine has announced HD-VU 1.0 for Macintosh, an all-in-one video player that previews clips without first requiring transcoding. The app organizes clips by source folders and generates thumbnails automatically for a visual reference to each file. It behaves like a watch-folder, populating clips as they appear on offload. The app works with pro-video formats from Canon DSLRs and XF series cameras, Panasonic P2 and AVCCAM, JVC's HCSD, SxS and SxS Pro, RED cameras, Sony's XDCam EX and AVCHD and Arri's Alexa cameras.

The app previews video clips directly as they come out of camera, working in conjunction with ShotPut Pro and ProxyMill, offering a scalable window that automatically forms to the clip's presentation ratio. It plays back with an optional, non-destructive timecode overlay viewable over the frame. Floating video controls are available, but can be turned off.

Metadata is viewable in HD-VU, and hotkey support is included. The software is Lion-ready, requiring at least Mac OS X 10.6.0 or later and 2GB of RAM, with 4GB of RAM preferred. A demo is available, and the full license (one license per computer) is $100.
