Capture anything, edit anywhere.
STORM Mobile gives you the freedom to edit wherever your work takes you — in the studio or on location.
STORM™ Mobile from Grass Valley™ strengthens the EDIUS® 6 NLE’s realtime field editing capability by providing a variety of inputs and outputs using either PCIe 1X card for desktops or an ExpressCard/34 card for laptops, with several configurations to choose from.
STORM Mobile’s comprehensive video editing interface breakout box
is equipped with an HDMI I/O (for video formats up to 1080i), analogue component, analogue composite, S-Video and unbalanced audio for the ultimate in connectivity.
While the STORM Mobile desktop PCIe 1X card supplies power to the STORM Mobile breakout box, an AC adapter is supplied for laptop ExpressCard/34 card operation.
The STORM Mobile chassis is available in two versions: an internal PC 5-inch drive bay type and an external breakout box type. The breakout box can be easily be converted into a 5-inch bay type by the user.
STORM Mobile also offers several additional hardware benefits. The integrated hardware down conversion function is handy when you are editing HD but want to make sure your picture is good in SD, such as when creating DVDs. Downconversion is hardwarebased, so the process doesn’t use any CPU power, and has no affect on editing performance.
Super High-Quality Capture from Camera Through Output
By using the HDMI output of your camcorder, you can capture video with STORM Mobile at higher quality (HQ mode: 4:2:2, I-Frame, 150 Mb/s) than with outputting AVCHD (4:2:0, Long GOP, 18 Mb/s). This is very useful when creating footage for keying work. XF capture with MPEG-2 (XDCAM compatible) or AVC-Intra (P2 compatible) is also available.
Real-Time Display Streamlines Workflows
STORM Mobile’s enhanced real-time monitoring capability gives you separate composite outputs which always show an SD picture regardless of the resolution used for editing. STORM Mobile always outputs a true, native resolution picture without any frame skipping or degradation.
Make the Most of Old VHS, Video8, and Hi8 Assets
STORM Mobile leverages the threedimensional Y/C separation used in the ADVC-300 converter, which means you can capture old analog formats at the best possible picture quality.
STORM Mobile has a separate headphone output with a digital amplifier which is always available while editing, providing you with the best monitoring experience available.
