    Thomson Unveils HDSTORM HDMI-based HD I/O Board to Super Charge HD Editing


    Paris, France/Amsterdam (IBC — Stands 1.D11 /7.F31), September 11, 2008 – Following the universal success of Canopus' DVSTORM product, Thomson (Euronext Paris: 18453; NYSE: TMS), the worldwide leader in video solutions, will release the next-generation Thomson Grass Valley™ HDSTORM™ PCI Express (PCIe) board. Including the latest version of Thomson Grass Valley EDIUS® non-linear editing software (5), HDSTORM helps users making the transition from standard-definition (SD) to high-definition (HD), file-based production in a fast, flexible and highly cost-effective way.

    HDSTORM allows editors to work easily with HDMI inputs and outputs, and provides the Canopus HQ hardware codec built-in for optimized, CPU-free capture and export. This includes full-resolution and synched preview of effects.

    "Thomson continues to develop new tools to make the transition to HD production easy and affordable, and the new HDSTORM is yet another example of that strategy," said Jeff Rosica, Senior Vice President of Thomson's Broadcast & Professional Solutions within the Systems division. "No company offers such a compelling offering - an HDMI-based I/O board and fully-featured editing software in a single package - and we think HDSTORM will find a home with thousands of customers in the same way that the DVStorm product did."

    The power of having the Canopus HQ codec on board, which is a unique offering in the industry, means users are not restricted by their CPU speeds or workstation limitations when ingesting or creating Canopus HQ files. Keeping the compression processing separate brings new reliability and system performance to the editing and effects creation environment.

    The new HDSTORM is designed to work exclusively with the new EDIUS 5 software (also to be introduced at IBC, see separate EDIUS 5 release). A bundle of HDSTORM and (5.25-inch) bay, called HDSTORM Plus, will also be available. The bay not only features additional connectors for HDMI devices, but also input and output connectors for analog HD/SD component, S-Video, composite and unbalanced audio; this helps those still working in analog to make the transition to digital and HD production.

    Thomson is unique in supporting the entire media chain from high-definition content creation to multi-play services for home consumption. As broadcasters become broadercasters, Thomson is the right technology partner, as it will demonstrate at IBC 2008 in two booth locations – Hall 1, Stand D.11 and Hall 7, Stand F.31.

    Pricing and Availability
    The estimated price of the HDSTORM board on its own (EDIUS 5 software included) is $1299, while the HDSTORM Plus board and bay combination is $1599. Both will begin shipping immediately. For a limited period existing DVStorm and DVRex users can upgrade to the new HDSTORM PCIe I/O board with the full EDIUS 5 software package for $999. The upgrade to HDSTORM Plus is $1299. These promotions are good until December 31, 2008.

                  You might keep your name Dave but are you going to keep your NX card in your MAC? Which leads me to the next obvious question..... Will the HDStorm card work in a MACPro, that will be an interesting one to find out!

                    Yes I am going to keep my NX. Not sure how the HDSTORM will work, but it probably will work since it's a single PCIe card. If you need the breakout box it looks like you have to remove one of the PCI brackets and run out the cable and put the box outside...

                      With HDMI-out the new HDStorm card will allow monitoring on a wide range of relatively cheaper but still very good HD panels. This is a great advantage for Edius users so thanks GV!
                      Having said that other cards on the market with HDMI have "monitoring with calibration controls including blue-only"
                      Will the HDStorm card allow these extra things like pixel for pixel monitoring, or underscan for example with it's HDMI output?

                        Dave,
                        The one I am interested in seeing is the (approx) $5,000 one with HD SDI.

                          I have a question about analog HD, My firewire ports are blown on my camera. If I captured in HD componet is there a way to set a capture limit or have Edius break the clips up while capturing? like every 8 minutes or something?

                            Where are your component inputs? NX does not capture analog HD as far as I know. It is only SD analog. The HD Storm bay will.
                            I capture that by way of my Intensity Pro card to uncompressed or MJPEG. It is one big file.
