New Digital Video Publishing Software Ideal for Corporate and Video Professionals
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 want high-quality and comprehensive content creation capabilities. Pinnacle Systems will be demonstrating Edition at its DV Expo Booth #247 in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center June 25-27.
Pinnacle Edition includes Pinnacle's new non-linear editing software application along with Hollywood FX software for special effects, TitleDeko RT software for graphics and Pinnacle's Impression application for DVD authoring.
"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.
Pricing and Availability
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.
