Reprinted from a Ulead press release:

Ulead Systems, Inc., a leading software developer of digital video, image editing, 3D animation, and DVD authoring applications, today announced StudioQuartet, a complete digital media production suite for video professionals and aficionados. StudioQuartet is a collection of Ulead’s professional digital media software on one DVD at a cost-effective price point. It offers videographers comprehensive digital media tools for image editing, graphics creation, 3D text and object animation, and full-resolution, real-time video editing, including rotoscoping and powerful CG tools. It also includes advanced DVD authoring and support for a wide range of traditional and emerging format types including MicroMV and DVD-VR. StudioQuartet is expected to ship June 1st, 2003 for $795 for the first 90 days and $895 thereafter.

For over a decade, Ulead has developed industry-leading digital media software for both consumers and professionals. With StudioQuartet, Ulead capitalizes on its expertise in both markets to create a complete digital media collection that marries an intuitive workflow with powerful, high-end technology. StudioQuartet meets the professional videographer’s need for a complete digital media solution. At the same time, it meets the prosumer’s desire for an accessible digital media tool kit that he will not outgrow as his skills improve.

“StudioQuartet gives digital content creators all the tools they need to create great-looking productions right out of the box,” comments Mike Mickes, director of sales and product management, Ulead Systems, North America. “The software market currently offers a variety of tools to edit video and create DVDs. But, quite often, for professional results you have to go to multiple software vendors to purchase a complete solution, or the software is so complex that you must take a class to learn how to use it. With StudioQuartet, all the tools are in one box, on one DVD, and you don’t need to purchase additional software or hardware for optimal results. You can dive right in and start creating graphics, video overlays, and DVD chapter points without having to memorize a manual.”

StudioQuartet offers videographers the following digital media tools on one DVD:

  • Image Editing — Capture, edit, and manipulate digital images for use as video overlays in video production or as menus and chapter buttons in DVD authoring. Design images for web design or DVD labels and covers.
  • 3D Text and Object Animation — Create high-end animated 3-D models, logos and text to be used as video overlays or as motion buttons for DVDs. Choose from a meld of composition flexibility for professional-level control with an array of time-saving, pre-set options for fast graphic generation.
  • Video Editing — Capture DV and MPEG video in real-time, then combine with stills and 3-D models created within StudioQuartet, and edit video productions with a wide range of effects and filters. See editing decisions immediately in full-resolution, either in the preview screen or on a second display device.
  • DVD Authoring — Author and burn professional-level DVD’s with flexible menu authoring features that provides precise control over DVD menu design.
