Reprinted from a Ulead press release:
Ulead Systems, Inc., a leading developer of video editing, image editing and DVD authoring software, today announced that Ulead MediaStudio Pro 7.0 is now available. This latest version of Ulead’s professional video editing software offers professional videographers flexible, software-only, real-time editing, display and output features that outperform other non-linear editing software solutions in the professional video editing software market. MediaStudio Pro 7 recently received Animation Magazine’s Seal of Excellence award in its April issue.
“We decided to switch from Adobe Premiere to MediaStudio Pro due to compatibility issues,” says MediaStudio Pro user and beta-tester Clayton Nagy, audio/visual technician for the Mystic Aquarium’s Sea Research Foundation. “This latest version of MediaStudio Pro 7 makes our work easier because we can see our editing decisions immediately in full screen on a second display device, even when we are tweaking effects via the effect preview interface. It also comes loaded with useful, new features such as automatic editing to audio cues, complete with transitions, and 16:9 native widescreen support. You can even analyze DV tapes at up to 10x speed to log chapter thumbnails as a DV Album to be used as selective batch capture logs or as reference to categorize tapes.” Mystic Aquarium, located in Mystic, Connecticut, is the third largest aquarium in the US.
MediaStudio Pro outputs in real-time to a second display device using a graphics display card such as the Matrox Parhelia 128MB AGP graphics card. The software is unique in its ability to output both video fields, not just one, for full-resolution output to a monitor, TV or tape deck.
