NEW YORK CITY, June 25, 2002-At DV Expo this week, Pinnacle Systems,
Inc. (NASDAQ: PCLE) will highlight Pinnacle Edition, a powerful professional
video editing and DVD authoring software solution. Pinnacle Edition
is a software product that provides a complete solution for corporate
and event video professionals, educators and dedicated hobbyists who

Pinnacle Edition includes Pinnacle's new non-linear editing software
application along with Hollywood FX software for special effects, TitleDeko

"Pinnacle Edition combines professional video editing and DVD authoring
in a package of unprecedented value," said Georg Blinn, President
of the Personal Web Video Division.
"As a leading supplier of digital video content creation tools
for consumers, prosumers, videographers, corporations and educational
video producers, we have put it all together in this one product."
Pinnacle Edition uses Pinnacle's new InstantSave technology to protect
the user's media. Background processing allows work to continue on the
project, scrub the timeline and playback rendered sections while the
Pinnacle Edition application renders even the most complex effects.
Users have many input options, including the choice of 1394 PCI card,
an OHCI-compatible 1394 port on a desktop or laptop system, or it can
use Pinnacle's DV500 hardware for analog and digital output. Pinnacle
Edition is built on the same broadcast technology that is used by leading
broadcasters throughout the world. Users get the power of an advanced
sub-pixel processing engine that goes beyond any other desktop video
editing product to offer options that guarantee broadcast quality for
2D/3D digital video effects, color correction tools, and slow motion
capabilities. Pinnacle Edition can burn play-at-once DVDs, and SVCDs,
directly from the timeline. For more complete DVD authoring, export
the timeline as MPEG-2 using the integrated encoder for creation of
completed discs in Impression DVD Pro.

Fully compatible with Windows® 2000 and Windows XP Home and Professional,
the Pinnacle Edition software will be available through select resellers
throughout North America in July. The suggested retail price for Pinnacle
Edition is US $699.
