Pinnacle Systems, a leader in digital video content creation tools, has announced DV500 PLUS, one of the first real time DV editing products to fully support the new features of Adobe Premiere 6.0. In particular, DV500 PLUS supports, in real time, Adobe Premiere 6.0’s new multi-track audio mixer and 16:9 video format.

DV500 PLUS is the successor to Pinnacle Systems’ popular DV500. The product retains all of the hardware features of the DV500 such as analogue and digital in/out. In addition to real time support for new Premiere 6.0 features, DV500 PLUS offers real time image correction, real time effects and transitions and real time titles with TitleDeko RT. DV500 PLUS is equipped with a DV2 Speed Codec with dual processor support for ultra fast rendering. DV500 PLUS exports MPEG-2, MPEG-1, MP3, Real Media and Windows Media.

“We are excited to announce that DV500 PLUS is one of the first editing products to fully support the new features of Adobe Premiere 6.0 in real time,” says Bill Loesch, vice president of technology and marketing for Pinnacle Systems’ Personal Web Video Division. “We believe that users will find the new audio mixing, and widescreen capabilities of Premiere 6.0 to be extremely valuable upgrades to their editing suites,” he adds.
