Editing news stories depends on fast thinking, accuracy, and teamwork. Designed for high-pressure broadcast news editing, NewsCutter video editing software gives you all the tools you need to deliver compelling news packages - from the field or in the newsroom. Tight integration with newsroom automation systems and playout servers, ultra-fast media acquisition, and support for open and efficient production workflows make NewsCutter software the ideal storytelling tool for independent stations and worldwide media organizations alike.
News editing done right
An array of special news editing and voiceover tools, native format support for XDCAM , P2, DVCPRO HD, Canon, QuickTime, and GFCAM format media, metadata, cards and discs, and integrated media management help you stay relaxed and focused on telling the best story. Avids Open Timeline and mix and match real-time transcoding let you simply use material regardless of the format - and concentrate on the editing. When it*s crunch time, the FrameChase feature lets you start editing just seconds after an ingest begins. And NewsCutter editing is fast, with a host of time-saving features and keyboard shortcuts, including direct drag-and-drop of clips in the timeline. Completed stories go to air with a simple Send to Playback command, or use the included Sorensen Squeeze software to get your story to the Web
Seamless integration into any workflow
You*ll save valuable time with Avid Media Access (AMA) technology that lets you skip the import step and just start editing from the camera disc or card, with all metadata available. Or, use the shuttle knob on the deck to easily control capture into NewsCutter. Keep in sync with the story and the newsroom by opening an interactive iNEWS or ENPS session right inside NewsCutter. When you*re ready to send to air, a simple drop down option moves the package directly to the AirSpeed Multi Stream HD/SD server, or to other play out servers to get the story on air in the shortest possible time.
