From the homepage:
The first choice of professional editors, Final Cut Pro delivers high-performance digital nonlinear editing, native support for virtually any video format, and facility-class extensibility and interoperability. Whether you’re working solo or collaborating with a team, Final Cut Pro gives you more creative options and technical control than ever before.
Edit Anything

With native support for virtually any format, Final Cut Pro lets you edit everything from DV, IMX and uncompressed SD to HDV, XDCAM HD, DVCPRO HD, and uncompressed HD. Unlike other solutions, Final Cut Pro acquires HDV media and keeps it in the original format, with no generation loss. Output via FireWire back to an HDV camera or deck, or transfer your native HDV to DVD Studio Pro. Tapeless workflow support with Panasonic P2 compatibility allows high-speed ingest and editing. You can view and browse P2 devices, then transfer the files you need directly into the Final Cut Pro Browser.

Wait for Nothing

Final Cut Pro is built for speed with RT Extreme, the amazing real-time multistream effects architecture. Dynamic RT adjusts image quality and frame rate on the fly for optimal playback. Choose your format: Final Cut Pro supports real-time effects processing on everything from DV to fully uncompressed HD. Powerful multicam editing tools let you view and cut video from multiple sources—whether DV, SD, or HD—in real time. Group up to 128 sources together into multi-clips, then add or subtract cameras at any time for maximum flexibility.

Tell Your Story

Multichannel audio lets you capture and output up to 24 channels of high-resolution 24-bit, 96kHz audio in a single pass. You can also use external audio control surfaces to mix and record multiple fader automations simultaneously. Bring your story to the screen with the help of advanced image processing and intuitive media management features. Professional editing and trimming tools let you work quickly, while full customization gives you more flexibility and control.

Work Together

Capture once, save time, and share media with multiple editors using a consolidated storage pool powered by Xsan. Improved media management tools provide support for reconnecting and managing files across large Xsan environments. Deep cross-application integration between Final Cut Pro and the entire Apple family of professional applications allows you to seamlessly move from one creative task to the next.
