CineForm Unveils Connect HD for HD Video Editing

Los-Angeles-based CineForm Inc. rolled out Connect HD, its high-performance HD accelerator for Microsoft Windows-based video-editing applications. Connect HD will become the first video editing application to be bundled with Vegas 4.0 software from Sony Media Software. Connect HD will be also available as a standalone purchase.

Connect HD's editing performance is based on the same patent-pending video-processing technology that powers CineForm's Aspect HD. Connect HD maintains the identical AVI file format used in Aspect HD, making it compatible with Vegas and other editing applications such as Adobe After Effects and Windows Media Player. Connect HD also includes HDLink, CineForm's I/O software that connects PCs with HDV-compatible camcorders and DVHS decks.
