Adobe Certifies 14 Leading Video Capture Cards for Adobe Premiere 6.0
Press release from the issuing company
SAN JOSE, Calif., (April 30, 2001) (Nasdaq: ADBE)--Adobe Systems Incorporated, the leader in Network Publishing, today announced that it has certified 14 industry-leading video capture cards for use with Adobe Premiere 6.0 software. These video capture cards, from companies including Aurora Video Systems, Canopus Corporation, Fast Dazzle, Matrox Video Products Group and Pinnacle Systems Incorporated, provide a range of professional features.
Each card contains its own unique features, such as real time editing for the Mac and PC, the ability to edit MPEG2 files and DVD-authoring capabilities. Real time hardware cards allow Adobe Premiere users to edit their work instantly, without having to render a project. Certified hardware cards include the Canopus DVStorm and DVRex RT Professional; Matrox RT2500, RT2000 and Digisuite line; and the Pinnacle DV500 Plus, DC1000 and DC2000.
Adobe Premiere 6.0 software also comes bundled with IEEE 1394 (or FireWire) cards for people who want plug-andplay digital video editing capabilities but do not have a DV-enabled computer. These cards include the Pyro Platinum DV from ADS Technologies and the DV200 from Pinnacle.
"Adobe works closely with its partners through the certification process to address the needs of our customers and ensure product compatibility," said Erik Lundblade, OEM product manager for Adobe Premiere. "As a result, Adobe Premiere is bundled in more real-time editing solutions than any other non-linear editing software."
Adobe continues to test and certify currently available video capture cards for Mac and Windows platforms, and will also test new cards as they are released. A complete list of certified video capture cards for Adobe Premiere 6.0 can be found on the Adobe Web site at http://www.adobe.com/products/premiere/6cards.html.
