Although Access A/V is not a computer reseller, we can assist you in making
decisions about computers you may use in your editing suites, classrooms and Control Rooms, and help integrate
these systems into your workflow. Whether PC based or Mac applications, we can help guide you through the confusing
acrynms of NLE, FCP, MPEGII, .avi, .mov, etc.
For Control Rooms you may find that recording directly to a computer hard drive, adds convenience,
shortens workflow and opens your control room up as an editing suite or transfer station during the 'down' times.
Latops may also serves as record decks for shoots in the field or using mobile studios and flypacks.
You will additionally require computers or laptops with your Playback Servers, Bulletin Board systems,
Teleprompters and other systems.

Sony Vegas Editing Software
Vegas Pro 11 from
Sony is a professional video editing
software package that includes the Dolby Digital Professional Encoder (for 5.1 surround sound encoding) and DVD
Architect Pro 5.2 for Blu-ray Disc and DVD authoring. Featuring extensive native support for video formats up to
and including 4096 x 4096 resolution, the video-editing side of the software allows you to work easily – without
re-wrapping or transcoding – with a variety of professional formats such as AVCHD, XDCAM EX, RED R3D, and more. As
extensive as its feature set is, and as flexible and customizable the workflow, Vegas Pro 11 remains an
approachable NLE, with simple, drag & drop operations for many editing tasks to go along with sophisticated
options for ripple editing models.
With its full support for stereoscopic 3D editing, comprehensive multi-track audio
editing & recording environment, and GPU-accelerated rendering & real-time effects preview, Vegas Pro 11 is
worthy of consideration for any professional video editor working on the Windows platform. There's little you can't
do, as the software provides just about every tool you need to import video (including video & RAW files from
DSLR cameras and almost every popular configuration of left-eye/right-eye 3D footage), monitor it, edit it, edit
audio & create mixes, add effects, transitions & titles, render with the help of an OpenCL-compatible
graphics card (sold separately), and
output projects as web-friendly AVC & MP4 files and as professionally authored DVDs & Blu-ray
Like the remarkably full-featured disc-authoring features, the audio-production
capabilities of Vegas Pro 11 are truly first-rate, especially for an NLE package. There's support for unlimited
tracks, 5.1 surround-sound mixing and encoding to AC3 via the Dolby Digital Professional Encoder, and a
multithreaded audio engine that maximizes the available resources of your system to render projects quickly and
enable the real-time preview of large numbers of tracks.
Version 11 of the software package introduces a wealth of features, such as easy
image stabilization, support for GPU acceleration, two titling tools for both 2D and 3D titles, and stereoscopic
editing tools that let you correct screen-edge violations easily.
