The real-time processing to support resolution independence, which permits editors to mix and match HD and SD source material in the same timeline, is a first for personal computers. With HDX, Media 100 HD additionally supports broadcast-quality format conversion between all HD and SD formats, another first for PCs.” First shipments of Media 100 HD are planned to begin in February 2004.
