A new Hedge
From today onwards, our flagship product Hedge has a new name:
At Hedge, we make software that fixes the broken bits of a video workflow. The difficult stuff. The awkward things. The repetitive chores. All those things that keep wasting your time.
Trusted by over 50 thousand people day in, day out.
Every video workflow starts with backing up your media. Arguably the most critical step; if you don’t get it right, it will haunt you. That’s where offloading comes in. More than just a backup, it covers all your bases - copying, verifying, organising, and reporting. All the essentials to swiftly get you to the next phase of ingesting media ready for your video production.
The indispensable data manager, designed from the ground up for media file copying, backing up and archiving. Renowned for its speed and ease of use, OffShoot transfers to and from any kind of storage. Use it on-set, in the office, or while on the road. OffShoot is tailored to transfer video files safe and secure, but is also perfect for audio, stills, and virtual production assets.
Beautiful camera reports with high-quality stills and rich metadata, for all popular RAW and video codecs. Accessible and dynamically displayed on any device, FoolCat’s dark mode takes care not to distract in the edit suite. Its PDF exports enable easily shared reports as camera sources come in: through OffShoot's deep FoolCat integration you can queue report creations, without keeping sources occupied or slowing them down during offloads.
Cameras, recording codecs, and workflows are not all created equal. This means aligning files from different sources and preparing them for post is key to removing friction in workflows. By transcoding your footage, you can align and prepare files from different sources, and enable them to support various roles. This means that low-resolution proxies can be used for remote cloud-based workflows, editorial proxies can prepare raw files for the timeline with additional processes such as anamorphic de-squeeze, LUT application to log, frame guide, or burnt-in production metadata to meet the needs of different departments.
An epically powerful transcoding engine wrapped in a friendly user interface. Ready for RAW and all the popular codecs, it uses each manufacturer’s own color science for the best and most consistent results. Transcode and re-wrap footage into high-quality editable files. Built for speed and optimized for the power of both old and new Macs, EditReady works with all flavors of Apple silicon and GPU acceleration you can throw at it. Add overlays, burn in timecode, add reel names, shoot dates, media names, and other metadata - all in one go.
Allowing talent to collaborate on the same projects has traditionally required specific hardware and often involved expensive on-premise solutions. As cloud collaboration came into the mix, this made the process even more complex and costly. Different NLEs and storage platforms require different approaches, so the challenges remain the same: enabling the best talent to work together, regardless of location, without additional friction. We work on breaking down the technical barriers and removing vendor lock-in, to enable you to focus on creative collaboration.
Designed for Final Cut Pro and Premiere, PostLab tracks your projects across team members and only feeds you and your team the changes. It’s remote and collaborative editing, the way it should be. Say goodbye to relinking: with PostLab, it’s managed for you. Every team member can move files around as they see fit - without the others ever needing to relink. No more zipping and emailing of projects. No more "this_edit_FINAL_v1_v2_def_def2_final". PostLab keeps a copy of every saved file, for as long as you want. A single file with unlimited undo, right there in front of you.
All the Avid goodness you’re used to, wherever you are. Industry-leading bin-locking technology for Media Composer with full support for both your NAS and cloud drive that doesn’t break the bank. Whether you and your team work on-prem with a SAN or NAS, or remote, with LucidLink's Filespaces, it's a seamless transition. Already have invested in local shared storage? Add it to the mix, for the perfect hybrid workflow. Plus, it fully supports Apple silicon.
A critical review of creativity is crucial in delivering high-quality work that meets strict deliverable criteria. Quality checks play an essential role in the review process, whether it be during production following offloading, throughout the post-production process, or as part of the final delivery. Utilising industry standard test and measurement tools ensures audio, video, and colorimetry are true and accurate to support the artist's creative intent.
All the scopes you'd expect from high-quality hardware, with all the flexibility of software. With a toolset designed for creative professionals - colorists, editors, and DITs, ScopeBox gets you the inside view of your images. Compatible with NDI inputs, leading third-party I/O capture devices, deeply integrated with NLEs and grading software like Premiere Pro Final Cut Pro, Davinci Resolve, and Assimilate Scratch. Want to run your scopes on a second machine? ScopeLink has your back.
An asset is at risk throughout its lifecycle unless it is backed up in at least two types of media or three places. Original camera files are often large and valuable in the long term, making digital negative options a cost-effective, air-gapped, and accessible archive free from egress fees. Having physical control of your content with browsing capabilities ensures that its value is safely under your creative control.
LTO is fast, vast, and robust. But easy to use? Not out of the box. Canister brings unrivaled setup and driver assistance plus a drag-and-drop interface to LTO, the lowest-cost way to store media files long-term. Archive to one or multiple tapes, browse them in Finder without having to mount them, retrieve through Finder, all without needing an IT degree.
