Direct-to-Edit (DTE)

Contributor(s): Brad Chaplin

Direct-to-Edit (DTE) is a video recording technology that converts the output of a digital video (DV) camera directly to a nonlinear editing ( NLE ) format that is suitable for storage on digital media such as computer hard drives.

DTE combines the steps of acquisition (recording of the video imagery) and capturing (conversion of the data to a format that can be stored on disk). In effect, DTE eliminates the task of capturing files before editing them, bypassing the need for recording tape and reducing the overall amount of hardware used and time required for processing. DTE has been called tapeless DV recording technology.

Hardware is available that allows professional DV camcorder s to take advantage of DTE. These devices are supplied with batteries for portability, and output to all popular NLE file formats, including QuickTime, Adobe Premiere, Canopus AVI, Matrox AVI, and Avid Xpress. Data is stored on removable media, such as FireWire drives, in real time as the video is shot.
