Media 100 is to demonstrate Media 100iHD, its new Mac OS X-based HD/SD (High Definition/ Standard Definition) editing system at giant broadcasting event NAB next month.

Media 100iHD will ship this year. The system features new technology that can convert 10bit uncompressed HD and SD Input/Output and real-time, broadcast-quality format conversion between HD and SD formats.

Broadcast format conversion enables Media 100 iHD to convert from any HD format to any other HD format, from any SD format to any HD format, and from any HD format to any SD format, all in real-time.

It also supports resolution-independent mixing of HD and SD source material in the same timeline, plus 10bit uncompressed native HD editing. Final price details are not available, but the system is expected to cost around $9,995.

NAB runs from April 7-10.
