Superior Real-Time Capabilities... Designed with performance in mind, DVRexRT Professional is a full-bodied, professional-level NLE that delivers a powerful combination of features required by today's video editors.

Key Features

Incomparable real-time DV and analog input/output... Offering the type of performance that you expect from your editing system, DVRex RT Professional gives you the capability to capture video through on-board IEEE 1394 (i.LINK), Y/C, and composite connectors and output real-time to DV or analog from the timeline. Output to MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and streaming video files... and with native DV audio input/output, the audio clock is genlocked to video reference supplying perfect sound and video synchronization.

More CPU Power equals more real-time capabilities... Designed to offer editing system performance scalability, DVRex RT Professional upgrades automatically to enhance future DVRex technology.

Advanced DV and Analog Input/Output... Capture DV in your camera, then digitally transfer footage via the IEEE 1394 (i.LINK) interface and through s-video, composite or component connectors in the footages native format. Output real-time to DV or analog tape from the timeline, and deliver video on tape, CD, DVD or over the Internet.  For capture and output, DVRex RT Professional provides deck and camera control of DV and DVCAM devices through the IEEE 1394 interface. DVRex RT Professional also supports deck and camera control of analog devices through RS-422.  Typically only available with high-end analog audio equipment, the DVRex RT Professional offers balanced XLR audio connectors in addition to unbalanced RCA jacks. Balanced audio cables and connectors help prevent the introduction of noise, especially useful in a studio environment.

Finishing in Real-Time... DVRex RT Professional incorporates Sony's DVBK-1 hardware DV CODEC on-board for digitizing analog video into the standard DV format and outputs to DV timeline in real-time. MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 encoding is done by the Panasonic hardware MPEG CODEC, for high-quality conversion in near real-time from the RexEdit/Premiere timeline.  The decision is yours, edit with Adobe Premiere or RexEdit 2.91, both provides an impressive assortment of productivity tools. Choose from a whole host of real-time filters, transitions, multiple audio, video and title tracks, plus real-time audio filtering, by taking advantage of the powerful DVRexRT Professional's hardware from within Canopus' real-time plug-in for Adobe Premiere. All features can be applied to each layer independently, played back and reviewed instantly in real-time.  Using both the Adobe Premiere titler and Boris GraffitiTM, multiple titles can be also created in real-time with individual title motions and attributes. Both RexEdit and Adobe Premiere, using the Canopus real-time plug-in, process in YUV 4:2:2 maintaining high image quality when keying and creating titles. Use DVDit! SE for DVD authoring. And finally, employing Sonic Foundry's ACIDTM Style gives you capability to easily produce one-of-a-kind musical masterpieces.

Professional Breakout Box... DVRexRT Professional's 19" rack mountable breakout box comes complete with headphone output, audio level meters, and analog audio input gain controls making it easy to add to a studio rack.

I have checked with our Southern California dealers, and at this moment no one has one in stock.  I would recommend contacting Promax (800) 977-6629 or Computervice (310) 838-9000 if you would like to place an order.    Thanks for asking about our products.  Ken Goss, Canopus Corporation.
