Powered by Canopus Rextor
CWS-30 is designed to work in conjunction with other CWS series products, such as the CWS-100, or as a standalone solution for remote location production and broadcasting. At the heart of the CWS-30 is Rextor, Canopus's powerful nonlinear editing software solution. In addition to render-free, realtime DV output of three video streams, Rextor offers professional features well-suited for broadcast applications, including sophisticated clip management with advanced search and store capabilities, realtime 2D/3D transitions, titling with motion speed control, and a comprehensive collection of video filters and keyers. Filters include YUV and RGB Color Correction with realtime vectorscope/waveform display. Rextor also lets editors create MPEG files for DVD, streaming video files, and industry-standard EDLs for offline editing and project files compatible with other Canopus CWS editing systems.
Direct Capture and Transfer of Footage
CWS-30 OEM Pack supports quick and efficient data transfer of footage from the camera to the mobile editing workstation using the Sony DSR-DU1 DVCAM video disk unit. The DSR-DU1 docks onto the rear of compatible camcorders and records video and audio signals on its internal hard disk drive. Using the IEEE 1394 i.LINK connector, these files can be directly transferred to Rextor's bin window, so editors can begin editing without delay.
Fast, Hot-Pluggable Storage with CWS-MP300
To ensure steady, fast data transfer, the CWS-30 OEM Pack also includes the CWS-MP300 external mobile video storage pack, which boasts five hours of DV storage capacity in a compact 2.5-inch enclosure. This hot-pluggable, FireWire storage pack delivers data transfer rates three times faster than standard DV for a date transfer rate of 11 MB/sec.
CWS-30 OEM Pack delivers optimum performance on any laptop meeting the minimum specifications, which include Windows 2000 Professional (recommended) or Windows XP Professional operating system, either a 2.0GHz Intel Pentium 4 Processor - M or a 1.5GHz Intel Pentium M processor, 512MB of RAM, ATI graphics chipset, 32-bit 1024 x 768 pixel color display, 3.5" floppy disk drive, 20GB hard disk drive, CD or DVD-ROM drive, 10/100BASE-TX network capability, and two PCMCIA Type II card slots.
