Reprinted from a Canopus press release:

Las Vegas, NAB (April 8, 2002) – Canopus Corporation today announced that DVStorm, the company’s acclaimed realtime nonlinear editing solution, just got more powerful. At this week’s NAB conference, Canopus (booth #S6944) will demonstrate DVStorm outperforming the competition by delivering five simultaneous realtime video streams. While Canopus users have long enjoyed the realtime editing and output performance of DVStorm, they can now take advantage of this realtime processing – of filters, transitions, picture-in-picture effects, color correction, chroma and luma keying and more – with five streams of video.

Due to Canopus’s Scalable Technology Architecture, which extends the life of the DVStorm and gives users a much higher return on their investment, this new five-stream capability is added to DVStorm through a simple software update. The five-stream update will be available next month to current DVStorm users at no charge directly from the Canopus Web site at

DVStorm combines stability, reliability, and affordability with an extensive high-performance feature set that boasts render-free, realtime native DV editing, realtime DV and analog input/output (1394/i.LINK, S-video or composite) and MPEG output for DVD and Internet streaming. For compelling content creation users can take advantage of DVStorm’s impressive set of editing tools that deliver an assortment of realtime capabilities including multiple moving titles and graphics layers, audio and video filters, and transitions. DVStorm features over 23 realtime filters, such as color correction, motion blur, old movie, picture-in-picture, chroma key, luma key and chrominance.

DVStorm SE includes Xplode Basics 3D transitions software, StormEdit, a realtime editing application, SoftMPG for MPEG and streaming output capabilities, Sonic DVDit! Trial DVD authoring software, Boris Graffiti Ltd., and Sonic Foundry ACID Style. Canopus also offers a DVStorm SE Plus version, which also includes Adobe Premiere 6.0 and a StormBay breakout box.

DVStorm uses Canopus’s highly acclaimed software DV codec to provide full-screen, full-motion video preview, seamless batch capture and leverage the power of the CPU to deliver more realtime features. DVStorm scalable architecture is designed to take full advantage of escalating CPU power.
