Supported NLEs

Supported NLEs

Most non-linear edit and finishing systems with SDI output can control and record directly to a Cinedeck allowing file creation with any of the available codecs for the selected project resolution and frame rate. Additionally, these systems can leverage Cinedeck’s File-based Insert Edit from the timeline using the most popular delivery standards, eliminating the need to re-export entire programs just to make a small correction.

NLE SupportCinedeck’s ability to emulate an SRW VTR means that any number of NLEs can be used with Cinedeck to achieve seamless file-based workflows.
