Imagine Products has launched version 2 of its HD-VU all-in-one player. HD-VU2 has been designed to show material in its original format with no need for QuickTime codecs, additional transcoders or any modification of the file.
Imagine Products will be highlighting its HD-VU2 player at IBC. The player will handle more than 20 camera file types including: Panasonic P2 and Sony XAVC, in addition to frame-based video formats including ARRI RAW and Blackmagic Design DNG and DPX. The updated player also allows users to organize footage by type and metadata, plus create playlists and folders, with the capability to select from "all", "unwatched" or "group by" categories.
HD-VU2 is also able to synchronize external sound files by the operator dragging and dropping audio from Finder. The unit then syncs the audio-video playback, with on/off control and settings and preferences for each sound channel.
Other video features include temporary color correction, which is not a permanent change but allows for more accurate playback. Clips are played in a full-screen, scalable window displaying multiple timecode and rates. The HD-VU2 is intended to run with Imagine Products' offload applications, ShotPut Pro, and ProxyMill compression systems.
