Pinnacle Upgrades Cinewave HD For DVCPRO HD

At NAB2004, Pinnacle Systems announced Version 4.6 of CineWave, the latest in the company's popular HD nonlinear editing product line. CineWave 4.6 runs on an Apple Power Mac and provides multistream real-time effects with simultaneous SD and HD output for Panasonic's DVCPRO HD format.

In addition to supporting the DVCPRO HD (100 Mbps) format, CineWave is compatible with the Panasonic VariCam variable frame-rate HD camcorder, including the VariCam's undercrank, overcrank and progressive scan features. CineWave 4.6 can capture and compress to DVCPRO HD in realtime from all popular HD formats and frame rates, including HD-SDI. The NLE also supports FireWire at the DV100 rate to work directly with the new Panasonic AJ-HD1200A VCR.
