  • Edius and the new Sony HDCAM EX

    In anticipation of the new Sony HDCAM EX camera that I saw At NAB I have ordered a new work station. It was time anyway so I went ahead with the order with 4.5 coming out any day now.

    My Question : What kind of slot or card reader will I need for the new machine? My Sony Vaio laptop already has it built in. I look forward to avoiding the long capture times. My average project now is about 3 hours of tape that has to be edited down to about 1.5 hours in order to fit comfortably on a SD DVD.


    Thanks

    You'll need to add an ExpressCard reader to your desktop -- this one should work:

      If your Vaio has express, you should be able to insert the card and transfer to either an internal or external drive attached to the laptop. At least I hope so as this is what I need to do whilst shooting.

        Thanks guys: I sent the info to Ashley at Guy Graphics who is building the nie machine. I want to get around the long capture times. Most of my projects are about 3 hours of raw footage and that means more than 3 hours to get the footage into the computer. I think I could capture with my laptop but I want to get the footage into the workstation that is going to do the final edit.

        Besides I don't know if an external HD set up would be fast enought to capture HD.

          It should be -- I have had no problem capturing 100Mbps DVCProHD to both Firewire 400 and USB 2 drives using DV Rack 2.1 HD.
