Tewksbury, Mass. — Pinnacle Systems will ship its Studio MovieBox to dealers this month.
The software will be available in Plus ($119) and Ultimate ($149) editions, bundling a copy of Pinnacle Studio Plus 11 and Studio Ultimate 11, respectively.
The Ultimate edition adds BIAS’ SoundSoap audio tools, advanced special effects from ProDAD VitaScene and other features geared toward more advanced users.
Both editions supports HDV and AVCHD high-definition video formats. They can capture and edit HD video in its native format and burn finished movies to HD DVD or standard DVDs for playback on high-definition players.
Both versions of MovieBox can capture video from USB 2.0 devices and analog sources including 8mm camcorders, VCRs, TVs and set-top boxes. They offer a library of video effects which can be applied to all sources of video and can output to a number of platforms including iPods, PlayStation Portabless and DivX-enabled devices.
New for MovieBox is the Scorefitter music generator which uses 40 source tracks and audio samples to automatically create a soundtrack.
