Here's one that interests Apple users with Vitrual PC, and I'm guessing will make PC users quite happy:

Not too pricey (Under $125) and can allegedly (more research needed) put HDV BACK to the HD10 and DVHS!

The turnkey have Their new codec, "Canopus HD Codec" as internal codec.
I assume the board on the system have HD-SDI I/O and you can feed uncompressed HDCAM or DVCPRO-HD signal through it.
I think you can transcode (recompress) MPEG2-HDV, then edit as well as other HD materials.
I still don't have detailed information about this system, but we'll have something more after next week.
Canopus is going to show some HD related systems at InterBEE 2003 (Broadcasting equipment trade show).
I can see another "HDWS-HDV" product name on their future plan chart. This might be a HDV based system.

MainConcept has something in the works for Premiere Pro. They call it Mpeg Pro and is supposed to edit Mpeg and MicroMV with FireWire preview. It will be available in an SD and a HD version. The website doesn't tell much but it's interresting.

Stand by for DeckLink HD and Premiere Pro. Black Magic Designs has just released drivers for the DeckLink SD cards and they are going to release HD drivers soon. A DeckLink HD card is less than $2K and does uncompressed HD and Jpeg for online and offline in very small file sizes.

Dual Xeon and server class MoBo's with PCI-X required. I'd go for a Dell.

Premier Pro makes HD from numbered stills

I've been able to use Adobe Premiere to make 1280x720 WM9 HD content from still image time-lapse sequences. You can see a scaled down 5 minute clip here...

http://www.dogsleap.com/videos.cfm

I captured individual frames using a Canon G5 (five megapixel) still camera as 1600x1200 jpegs and then cropped to 1280x720 and processed using photoshop batch actions. I configured Premiere Pro to 1280x720 (Video for Windows editing mode) and imported each sequence as numbered stills.

Scrubbing in the monitor window isn't very smooth until after rendering for the first time, but rendering takes forever (about 6 hours for a five minute clip on my dual 2.8ghz HP). But once the first rendering is done, it scrubs fairly well.

I used Adobe Media Encoder to output a WM9 file 1280x720, 29.97, and bitrate settings set to the maximum (probably overkill) and the 5:20 clip resulted in a 390MB file. It plays beautifully on my computer display (Samsung 213T).

I used Cleaner XL to convert to mp4, m2v, and smaller wmv files.

So, it does work for time-lapse, but it's slow.

JVC HD cams and Vegas 5

Does Vegas 5 capture directly from JVC's HD cams?

I’ve never used Vegas but I use Premiere Pro a little at work.

How does it compare?
