a new hardware partner for HD and Premiere Pro
This isn’t necessarily new to anyone, but MOTU has finally released their Windows drivers for their V3HD product. The box offers a bevvy of I/O and a DVC Pro HD chip that handles all of the internal processing. Click on the picture to take you to the website.
There’s still a lot of work for these guys to do – like support both Mac and PC with Premiere Pro, support WYSIWYG output on After Effects, Photoshop and Encore and if I’m dreaming, add the ability to use OnLocation because it should be native DVC Pro HD. Customers drive their development and since they’re new to video editing space, I recommend that you let them know what you want!
This isn’t to take away from what they’ve done. Lets face it, you have an HD edit hardware without the need for a PCI express card and its feasible you can use this on a laptop, making this a more affordable answer to AJA’s IO on the Mac.
I’ve been promised a unit and once I have it, I will definitely put it through its paces and give you a report. Until then, click on the link and check it out.
