EDIUS & Quick Sync Video Technology Application Note (GVB-1-0501A-EN-AN) File size: 903.4 KB, posted Mar 31 2015 Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV) is a feature that has been included in Intel Core processors from the second generation onwards.

EDIUS Pro 8: Nonlinear Editing Software Datasheet (GVB-1-0517M-EN-DS) File size: 2.0 MB, posted Jul 05 2017 When an editor has to wait for technology, creativity suffers.

If video is shot in HLG format directly, it can be distributed without any color grading in cases where timing is of the essence.
Then, isn't it possible for Log format cameras like S-Log or V-Log to be used in such fields? Although a Log signal needs to be converted to HLG or Perceptual Quantization (PQ) in order to be displayed on consumer TVs, the conversion itself is not difficult. Leaving live production to one side, we can play out HDR clips with a short time lag after quick editing such as cut & paste, title addition and format conversion by using EDIUS.
But to do so, some points need to be taken into account, for example, the concept of picture tone is different between Log formats and HLG. The "Conversion Base" setting in the Primary Color Correction has implications based on the difference of the source material.
Ist es dann eigentlich nicht möglich, Kameras die im Log-Format aufzeichnen, wie etwa in S-Log oder V-Log, in solchen Bereichen zu verwenden? Ein Log-Signal muss nach HLG oder Perceptual Quantization (PQ) umgewandelt werden, damit es auf Consumer-TVs angezeigt werden kann die Umwandlung selbst ist aber nicht schwer.
Abgesehen von Liveproduktionen, können wir HDR-Clips mit nur geringer Zeitverzögerung ausspielen nach einem schnellen Schnitt mit Cut & Paste, dem Hinzufügen von Titeln und der Formatumwandlung mit EDIUS.
Um das zu erreichen, müssen aber einige Punkte beachtet werden: zum Beispiel unterscheidet sich die Farbgebung zwischen Log-Formaten und HLG. Wegen der Unterschiede im Quellmaterial hat die gewählte Einstellung der „Umwandlungsbasis" (Engl. Conversion Base) in der Primären Farbkorrektur Auswirkungen auf das jeweilige Ergebnis.
