QClip is a real time, hardware based broadcast video clip player

QClip is an application for Mac OS X that allows you to play Quicktime movies through Quicktime compatible video hardware including but not limited to FireWire devices, Decklink video cards and AJA video cards. This tool gives you fast access to any QuickTime movie and plays full motion video and audio out to your hardware device. Clips are assigned to pages and every clip is assigned to keys on the keyboard for quick recall and playback. Full support for IN and OUT points for the clips, cueing and everything you need for a broadcast ready clip player.

So, if you want to get away from tape machines or dvd players for playing back video elements for any kind of real time environment such as broadcast television, iMag for churches or corporate shows, or any other situation where you need access to multiple video elements quickly without cueing up tape machines, this is the product you need!

Simply export Quicktime movies from Final Cut or any other non linear editor with the codec specific to your hardware device and drop the movie right into QClip for instant play out.
