(New York, New York--January 27, 2016) Cinedeck continues to build on its ground breaking File-based Insert Edit technology with the addition of XDCAM support. File-based Insert Edit also supports Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHD, AVC-Intra and JPEG2000 in both MXF and Quicktime wrappers. With the addition of XDCAM, Cinedeck now offers customers all of the most popular network delivery formats for use with File-based Insert Edit in one easy-to-use and affordable application.

“We’re very excited to announce that we’ve extended our Insert Edit technology to include XDCAM,” says Cinedeck CTO Charles Dautremont. “This is a significant accomplishment that has major implications for production companies and post-finishing facilities throughout the Industry.”

Once considered the “Holy Grail” of file-based workflows, Cinedeck’s patent pending Insert Edit technology allows users to simply “punch in” changes to closed, flat files. Users can make changes to selected frames of video, audio or both without tediously re-exporting the entire file after each change. Additional time is saved during the QC process since only the newly inserted segments require verification while caption tracks, file metadata and file headers remain untouched. The financial benefit of File-based Insert Edit is significant as it increases productivity while reducing labor and media costs.

Since its release in early 2015, Cinedeck’s File-based Insert Edit technology has been embraced by a number of the Industry’s leading production companies and post-finishing facilities including Chainsaw Edit, Pilgrim Studios, Asylum Entertainment, Electus, 51 Minds, ADS Hollywood, “The Voice”, Geiger Post, Jupiter Entertainment, Performance Post, Lot 5 Media and others.

Among File-based Insert Edit’s earliest adopters is Geiger Post, a full service post production facility in the heart of Hollywood finishing countless of hours of file-based content each year. "We are thrilled that Cinedeck is adding File-based Insert Edit capability for XDCAM. We deliver all types of file formats to a variety of networks and being able to quickly fix XDCAM Quicktime files instead of re-outputting them after every change, saves us time and money," says Hans Geiger, President of Geiger Post.
