Digital Video System Offers More Features, Lower Price Tuesday 12 December 2000 PDF Print ** Review product and images available from Peter Linton 0118 984 3386 - Hauppauge offers exclusive ULead software for professional home video editing Hauppauge, the world leader in PC TV and video products, has launched a fully-featured digital video capture and edit system for the PC, offering more features at a lower cost than any other system on the market. Priced at £129.99 inc. VAT, DV Wizard Pro includes a high performance Firewire capture card for the PC and ULead MediaStudio 6.0 Special Hauppauge Edition. With DV Wizard Pro, owners of Mini-DV camcorders have everything they need to capture video to their PC, edit, and output to tape in full digital quality. Unlike other products, the Hauppauge/ ULead bundle does not simply provide a basic capture and edit version of the software. ULead MediaStudio 6.0 Special Hauppauge Edition includes the full Audio Editor and Cool 3D, a professional-quality 3D caption generator - key tools only previously available in the £330 full ULead MediaStudioPro software. Highest quality results MediaStudio 6.0 edits DV natively, eliminating generation loss. This means that the DV codec is maintained throughout the entire process - from capture, through editing, to output - without transcoding to another format, ensuring the highest quality possible. In addition, MediaStudio 6.0 is the first and only home video editing software to incorporate MPEG-2 native editing. MPEG-2 files can be captured and edited in native MPEG format for frame-accurate, no-generation-loss editing. Users enjoy DVD quality video on-screen or off a CD-ROM with the convenience and performance of MPEG-2's small file sizes. "We are very excited to introduce this product as the first of many video editing products to come," commented Yehia Oweiss, Managing Director of Hauppauge Computer Works Ltd. "As the established world leader in TV on the PC, we will bring our considerable expertise to this emerging market."
