A unique I/O solution for Premiere Pro
The V4HD represents a truly unique I/O solution for Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 on Windows. No other capture device offers such extensive video I/O connectivity, coupled with convenient plug-and-play FireWire operation and hardware-accelerated DVCPro capture and playback.
The V4HD is the first and only video capture/playback solution for Premiere Pro CS4 that provides hardware-accelerated DVCProHD (P2) capture from any HD video input, including HD component or HD-SDI sources.
The V4HD dovetails with the new P2 workflow features recently introduced in Premiere Pro CS4, allowing you to immediately play back P2 clips (either imported or ingested) on a variety of SD and HD formats simultaneously, with no transcoding necessary.
Conversely, the V4HD allows you to capture any video source, either SD or HD, while simultaneously employing–hardware-accelerated encoding and up/down conversion, in the following supported formats: uncompressed SD (standard AVI clips), DV, DVCPRo50 and DVCproHD.
Take Premiere Pro on the road
The V4HD is the first and only all-in-one capture/playback solution for Premiere that provides both SD and HD capture over FireWire, for the first time allowing you to build a comprehensive, yet compact and portable desktop workstation based on PC laptops or notebook computers equipped with FireWire, without the need for separate PCI expansion products.
Advanced features include an "Export to Tape" feature that allows you to lay back clips, or an entire project, to a tape deck using the V4HD's extensive machine control features. The V4HD also supports Premiere Pro's Batch Capture features.
The V4HD already supports both Windows XP and Windows Vista 32. Support for operation in a Vista 64 environment is on the way, allowing you to run multiple Vista 64 native video applications while still accessing the V4HD hardware from Premiere Pro.
