Video Satellite LE is a cost-effective way of bringing high-definition or standard-definition video into your Pro Tools|HD audio workflow. Whether you want to work with QuickTime HD or SD formats, or Avid SD video, Video Satellite LE allows you to keep video playback separate from your audio production, but tightly synced.
* Qualified Avid video peripheral required to capture certain video resolutions.
Video Satellite LE allows you to work with both high- and standard-definition QuickTime video, or standard-definition Avid video. Play back QuickTime HD or SD video on the desktop, or install a qualified Blackmagic Design video card (such as the Blackmagic DeckLink HD Extreme card) for full-screen video monitoring from a separate Pro Tools standalone computer. Or connect an Avid Mojo SDI to the Pro Tools computer and play back Avid SD or QuickTime SD video through the video peripheral for full-screen video monitoring.
Using a proprietary Ethernet connection protocol that delivers faster lockup time than traditional 9-pin solutions and tighter synchronization than MIDI Time Code, Video Satellite LE keeps your Pro Tools|HD audio and Pro Tools Video Satellite LE systems in sync. Control all audio and video transport commands from your Pro Tools rig—including scrubbing—with great ease and responsiveness.
As it works with Avid’s most affordable Pro Tools system, Video Satellite LE is the perfect cost-effective solution for working on professional video projects without having to sacrifice your Pro Tools|HD system’s host resources for video playback. And as a nice bonus for post professionals, Video Satellite LE gives you the flexibility of creating your own video playback system at home, allowing you to work on projects outside of a networked post-production facility.
