A new “Cloud Ready” floating license package is designed for large facilities such as broadcast stations or educational environments, allowing users to install Edius across multiple systems and then run a set number simultaneously at any given time, adding more licenses as needed, as the company stated on their own account. This feature will enable the use of Edius 9 on virtual workstations with major cloud platforms. The floating license package also includes license management software, making it much easier to manage the license with a single key.

Edius 9 performance enhancements include:

  • Native editing of HDR material
  • Export of HDR, which addresses the growing use of HDR content and supplements the existing ability of Edius to work directly in a number of 4K and HDR formats
  • Ability to mix SDR and HDR material in the same project, and output results in either color space
  • Native end-to end support for HDR content from professional and consumer camcorders from major camera manufacturers, and also for HDR video from drones and smartphones
  • Workflow updates, such as Canon EOS C200 “Cinema RAW Light” decoding, still raw file decoding and improvement of the user interface   Third-party hardware support update
  • Third-party hardware 4K 50p/60p output support (Edius Workgroup 9 only)
  • Mync (media management software) bundled with Edius 9 implements a powerful new Meta Smart Search function

The floating license package will be available in April 2018. For purchases of Edius 8 after Sept. 1, 2017, a free upgrade to Edius 9 will be available, and for users of earlier versions, a jump upgrade package will be offered.
