Where to buy

Overview

Collaborate easily and cost-effectively with the team-oriented NLE that’s a perfect companion for XDCAM and other major broadcast and professional formats.
XPRI Team is a power-packed non-linear editing (NLE) environment for Windows that’s perfect for the needs of small collaborative workgroups – from just two editing seats to a busy production suite or mobile shared editing environment. Uniquely flexible and easy to use, XPRI Team builds on the proven agility and cost-efficiency of XPRI NS.

Ideal for news, sports, magazine programmes, event production and other high-end editing tasks, XPRI Team puts fast, intuitive editing into the hands of freelancers, journalists and craft editors alike.

XPRI Team scales readily and cost effectively for multiple users to enable true collaborative editing and easy project sharing. There are no costly servers or extra hardware needed: simply network client stations and away you go. You can also extend the system’s capabilities by adding low-cost shared storage to enhance capacity and performance.

Resilient, responsive and reassuringly stable, XPRI Team is a self-contained per-client software application that runs on standard PC hardware. With no costly recurring licenses needed, XPRI Team provides an exceptionally attractive environment that scales readily from two edit seats to larger collaborative teams.

Fast, simple workflow comes first with XPRI Team – cutting training requirements and driving down ownership costs even further. It’s easy to personalise the intuitive GUI to suit any editing style. Customise buttons and keyboard shortcuts; then size and place source viewer, master viewer, timeline and other windows. Edit intuitively with PC and mouse, or add optional hardware controllers for jog/shuttle, effects control and audio faders.

Uniquely for a NLE at this price-point, XPRI Team allows multiple users to edit during ingest from HD/SDI sources across the team network, with support for a wide range of other file-based formats. The editor’s built-in ON AIR function also allows immediate playout of an edited package from the timeline without the need for third-party hardware or software.

As your needs grow even further, XPRI Team also offers the perfect entry point to larger-scale network production workflows. Migrate step-by-step to the benefits of Sonaps using XPRI Team within a larger Sonaps system, protecting your initial investment by re-using all the hardware and software.

Features

Simple, scalable, cost-effective collaboration for workgroups
XPRI Team puts true collaborative editing into the hands of small workgroups with remarkable cost-efficiency and easy scalability. With XPRI Team it’s easy to share sequences and complete projects between multiple users, with no need for a costly central server and asset management system. Individual PC-based editing stations are networked using low-cost off-the-shelf IT hardware and shared storage – just add more seats and storage as your needs grow.
Fast, stable and responsive
You can’t afford to waste time when you’re facing client deadlines or need to get on air. XPRI Team offers a fast, stable, dependable editing environment that effortlessly keeps pace with the most urgent projects.
Edit the way you want to with customisable GUI
XPRI Team offers extensive options to personalise your editing environment. Customise button functions; map your favourite shortcuts to the keyboard; size and place source viewer, master viewer, timeline and other windows to suit any editing style. Settings can be saved for individual users and automatically loaded for each session.
Mix HD/SD and formats/resolutions in the same project
Forget about formats and resolutions. Effortlessly combine multiple media types – HD/SD and High-Resolution/proxies – within a single project.
Edit during ingest
Start editing without delay while content is still being ingested from HD/SDI sources. When expanded to XPRI Team configuration, multiple users can concurrently access and edit any live content being ingested by any other editing station on the network.
Communicate, share and approve with team talk
Use the built-in team talk function to share ideas, communicate across the network and approve final versions ready for air – saving time and enhancing the total collaborative workflow process.
Playout of edited packages from timeline
Go straight to air with no uncertainty. Make your edit and then immediately start playout from the timeline – it’s a big advantage in pressured on-air situations when you need to be first with the news.
Edit directly from SxS and XDCAM media
XPRI Team is the perfect companion for XDCAM. Edit content directly from disk or card with no need to ingest first – saving time and boosting efficient use of media storage.
Ready to grow with Sonaps
XPRI Team isn’t just a powerful standalone NLE. It’s also the perfect editing client for Sonaps, the end-to-end networked production environment from Sony that integrates planning, acquisition, editing, playout, distribution and archive into a single, seamless file-based workflow.

Specifications

General
The models listed below are tested and form part of the QA cycle in the factory for XPRI NS and XPRI Team V5.4 software. Sony can guarantee the operational performance of the XPRI software if these specific modes are used. However, it is impossible to test every available Workstation and Laptop on the market, so this information should be used as a guideline to the machine type and specification required to run XPRI NS and XPRI Team in a reliable way. Sony cannot, however, provide any guarantee of performance if models other than those tested are used.
