  • EDIUS and MPEG2

    Hi, I need to capture from a Digibeta deck via SDI directly to a muxed MPEG2 file at 15MBps with CBR and then be able to drop this file into a drop box. Is this possible on Edius without any transcoding or rendering? The MPEG2 files are not being used for DVDs.

    Thanks

    There's no real workflow for SDI-to-MPEG-2 with EDIUS. In fact, the 'cheapest' TGV solution I can think of is the TURBO iDDR.

      Looks like the iDDR is a great piece of equipment. I suppose I could hook up a monitor to the back to handle the data management and transfer? Any idea of the cost? Can I capture to MPEG2 directly or is transcoding involved?

        The Turbo iDDR starts at about $10k in North America. You'll have to contact a TGV Pro AV reseller in your area. You can find a list of dealers here. Be sure that the dealer you contact lists the Turbo as one of the products they sell--not all TGV dealers carry all TGV products.

          TURBO works exclusively with MPEG-2 when ingesting and using content for playout, so whether the input is from an external device, or a file-based input, it all goes to MPEG-2.

          And yes, it definitely is a great piece of equipment. :)
