from a Red Giant Software press release
(June 19, 2006) Red Giant Software today announced that Panasonic selected Instant HD for bundling with its powerful AG-DVX100B camcorder purchased in the United States. Panasonic began bundling Red Giant Software Magic Bullet Editors with the AG-DVX100 line of camcorders in the summer of 2004.
"The AG-DVX100B continues to be our best selling little SD camcorder. We were exploring options to make the AG-DVX100B package which includes the DVX Book, Magic Bullet Editors, and a promotional rebate just a little more interesting. A number of customers said they would flip for an HD solution under $4,000. Thus the inspiration for including Instant HD along with the other promotional goodies," said Jan Crittenden, Product Manager for the AG-DVX100B at Panasonic Broadcast.
Instant HD up-converts DV video into a variety of HD video formats. Users can choose from a list of preset resolutions to make it easy to integrate DV video into their next High Definition production. The plug-in supports After Effects, Final Cut Pro, and Premiere Pro. When scaling from standard definition (SD) to high definition (HD), the missing pixels must be generated in an intelligent way. Instant HD provides a high-quality method for converting SD sources to HD within users
favorite video application.
