  • Edius NX Express vs. Edius NX PCIe

    Videoguys.com have two different Edius products they sell. One is the Edius NX Express for $1299 and the other is the Edius NX PCIe for $949.

    http://www.videoguys.com/ediusNX.html

    What's the difference between the two products? Do both of them output to an HD Video Monitor?

    Right now I'm running the Edius demo software on an fast HP computer and I'm seeing a lot of real-time effects with no problems, but I can't view the output on a regular HD Video Monitor (which is what I want to be able to do).

    Thanks.

    It is only the NX PCIe mainboard, without the component/firecoder PCIe card...it says on the bottom:

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]"Note: Base NX board only. Does not include HDV expansion card MEPG encoder module"[/FONT]

    NX Express is the latest one with both cards being PCIe and the component expansion card also has FireCoder built in, that is hardware MPEG2/MPEG4 SD chips.

    You will need the expansion board or NX Express package to view your HD material via component out to a monitor.

      I honestly don't know what good the NX would be without the expansion board (talking about NX/Expansion kit)

        It has crossed my mind many times before.

          I guess it's ok if you need analog svideo/composite capture....but then it is the storm just with HD presets heh.

            It was, at the time, meant to be the DVStorm replacement with an option of becoming a full-fledged HD solution later on. It's rare that you see hardware designed with the customer's business model and budget in mind. :)
