Media 100 will conduct a technology demonstration of a new Mac OS X-based HD/SD editing system at NAB 2003 in April. The nonlinear system, dubbed Media 100 iHD, incorporates newly-developed HDX Technology (HDX) that features 10-bit uncompressed HD and SD I/O and real-time, broadcast-quality format conversion between any HD and SD formats, offering resolution-independent mixing and matching of HD and SD source material in the same timeline as well as 10-bit uncompressed native HD editing--for under $10,000.
Media 100 iHD incorporates Media 100 i software, which includes support for DirectEdit technology, InstantMedia integration for native media compatibility with any QuickTime application, Adobe After Effects integration, native-YUV color correction, and sound design support for real-time audio EQ, reverb and dynamics processing on up to 24 tracks of audio.
The Company expects first to start before the end of 2003. The expected price is $9,995 for Media 100 iHD software and hardware (HDX). Complete Media 100 iHD system configurations, including a workstation and high-speed media storage, are expected to start at approximately $20,000
