DpsVelocityQ 8.2 and dpsVelocity 8.2 sport a new interface style featuring a new color scheme, new flexible interface customization options, timeline picons and the uniquely powerful EyeCon View. EyeCon View continuously displays the picons and clip timecode of all visible layers based on the current playhead position, providing constant visual reference for all layers on the timeline while scrubbing and aligning clips and making it easy to precisely align specific frames across layers.
Additional new features common to both dpsVelocityQ 8.2 and dpsVelocity 8.2 include native file export to Leitch VR servers, support for Windows Media format version 9, and support for Direct-X audio plug-ins in the timeline. Advanced Authoring Format (AAF) and OMF import and export will also be offered through a new specially priced Interoperability option. OMF functionality was developed in conjunction with Trakker Technologies, developers of conversion tools such as Slingshot.
DpsVelocityQ combines flexible and intuitive software with the dpsQuattrus multi-stream real-time hardware, forming an integrated, advanced multi-layer NLE solution that delivers a combination of real-time power, quality, and affordability. DpsVelocityQ features real-time, full-quality playback of four streams of video, up to six graphics streams, and four channels of 3D DVE. DpsVelocity features the same software interface running on dual-stream real-time hardware, featuring real-time performance of two video streams, two graphics streams, and an optional single-channel 3D DVE. DpsVelocityQ and dpsVelocity are available as fully integrated, "ready to run" turnkey solutions, or as boardset-and-software bundles for installation into a Windows 2000 or Windows XP workstation.
DpsVelocityQ 8.2 and dpsVelocity 8.2 are expected to be released in Q2 2003. DpsVelocityQ 8.2 will be available as a free download for all existing registered dpsVelocityQ users. Similarly, registered users of dpsVelocity version 8.0 or 8.1 will be able to download the 8.2 upgrade free from the Leitch Web site. Specially priced upgrades to dpsVelocity 8.2 will be available for existing users of dpsVelocity version 7.6 or earlier.
