Avid Technology's Avid Xpress Pro HD software now supports native Panasonic DVCPRO HD systems.
Avid Xpress Pro HD customers will also receive native HDV support as part of a free software update scheduled for mid-2005.
The software also includes additional new features, such as DV50 capture and output over IEEE 1394, 24P and video effects output over IEEE 1394, and expanded film support.
The software integrates with other Avid editing and finishing solutions. Footage captured on Media Composer Adrenaline HD or Avid DS Nitris systems in Avid DNxHD – the company’s mastering-quality, storage-efficient encoding technology– can be transferred to an Avid Xpress Pro HD system using shared storage or local storage.
