Pinnacle Systems, Inc. is shipping version 6 of its Liquid Edition video editing software. Liquid Edition 6 offers new tools and features including the ability to edit multiple streams of native high-definition content with real-time effects without the requirement of proprietary hardware, a Steinberg-inspired audio engine, and compatibility with the Pinnacle Studio software.
Pinnacle Liquid Edition 6 also offers fully enabled support for PCI-Express bus technology, allowing Pinnacle Liquid Edition to eliminate roadblocks and deliver up to 30 times more bandwidth between the visual processor and the CPU than competitive PCI-based solutions, the company claims. This increased bandwidth results in increased real-time effects power for all formats, including HD, without requiring costly additional hardware.
Pinnacle Liquid Edition PRO adds an analog and digital breakout box with composite, component, S-Video I/O, stereo in, surround out, S/PDIF I/O and plug and play USB-2 ease-of-use.
Pinnacle Liquid Edition version 6 and Liquid Edition PRO version 6 are available immediately for the suggested retail price of $499 and $999, respectively.
