Support for Newtek SpeedHQ Codecs
The SpeedHQ codecs are the native formats for the Newtek Tricaster products and are frequently used. They were effectively killed in Premiere and Encoder when 32-bit support ended recently.
The OS level support for these older codecs has been removed.
Rather than creating new support for old retired codecs, Adobe will continue to invest in supporting popular modern formats.
Premiere Pro’s SDK allows any interested party to create support for any codec they wish.

Our studio is Tricaster-Centric. We have workflows where we record NDI to central SAN and need to be able to edit SpeedHQ codec material without having to transcode first. Would love to see this in Premiere/After Effects as soon as possible

This codec is a must for our University. We need to import files and export them for our workflow. Please add support for them!
