Sony Electronics has launched a video editing kit, EZ Editor Micromv, designed for use with Micromv camcorders. The product offers consumers a new level of simplicity in migrating digital video content to a PC, making it much easier to create and share personal movies with family and friends.
The new kit joins Sony's line of "EZ" editing solutions for different video formats, including EZ Editor DV and EZ Editor Digital 8. All three EZ products have been enhanced to include CD and DVD burning capabilities.
EZ Editor kits help to import raw footage from a camcorder onto a PC. These transform that material into personal movies by selecting only the content the user wants to keep; add music or voice-over narration, professional-looking titles and transition effects; and then output edited videos onto a CD-R disc, DVD recordable disc or camcorder tape.
Available this fall, all three kits will come with everything needed to personalize home movies, including Pinnacle's Studio AV version 8SE software, an i.LINK IEEE 1394 digital interface card, i.LINK IEEE 1394 cables and two blank video cassettes.
In addition, the kits will include one blank 80-minute Sony CD-R disc and carry a suggested retail of $99.95.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
