EditDV has been optimized for Apple’s new multiprocessing (MP) G4 Power Macs.

The upgrade is available free for registered users of EditDV 2.0, the video-creation and streaming-media authoring solution.

Video codec The application is produced by Media 100 subsidiary, Digital Origin. It makes use of the company’s proprietary-software codec, which was built specifically for digital video. Digital Origin’s Mike Micheletti said: "Because our video codec is entirely software-based, our tools can easily leverage any performance increase in host processors, like those recently announced by Apple."

The updated video codec is available from Digital Origin. EditDV costs £399 with a FireWire card, or £339 without.
