  • View your media directly from a camera, deck, or card reader
  • Make a full-volume backup
  • Organize clips into bins
  • Batch copy clips
  • Batch transcode clips
  • Make color adjustments and apply looks
  • Set in/out points
  • Establish multichannel audio assignments
  • Batch upload clips to the cloud via Sony Media Cloud Services Ci
  • Cut together a rough edit with the storyboard feature
All of this prep work flows automatically into Catalyst Edit.

Mac OS X

Mac OS X and Windows

Your computer is a tool you use to make great videos, and you run whatever operating system it takes to get the job done for your client. Whether you run Mac OS X or Windows, you need powerful editing capabilities. And if you use one platform at the studio and the other at the home office, you probably need to work on your projects on both systems. That's why Catalyst Prepare and Catalyst Edit look, feel, and function exactly the same on either platform.
Catalyst Browse is a free, simple viewing and logging tool exclusively for all Sony Pro formats. Available for both Windows and Mac OS X.
