Sony's 'Significant' Update Extends Vegas 7 Feature Set

Sony Media Software has announced the immediate availability of a Vegas software update, version 7.0c, free to all registered Vegas 7 users.
Sony say that this is a significant enhancement to the award-winning professional video, audio, and DVD production suite that was introduced at IBC 2006.
New functionality includes support for the progressive scan modes (24A and 30 modes on the V1U/V1J/V1N camcorders, and 25 mode on the V1E/V1P/V1C camcorders) on the Sony HVR-V1 series HDV camcorders, and a built-in import module for the HVR-DR60 Hard Disk Recording Unit.
With the 7.0c update, Vegas will properly handle the V1 series progressive scan modes automatically, without manual intervention. Users can also manually remove pulldown from native or downconverted 24p DV files.
"The Vegas 7.0c software update, in combination with the Sony HVR-V1 series HDV camcorders and the DR60 Disk Recorder, provides users with a tape-less progressive HD workflow," said Dave Chaimson, Vice President of Marketing, Sony Media Software. "The Vegas 7.0c update responds to the most current needs of content creators and program producers, offering a wide variety of progressive delivery options, including 1080p over HD-SDI, all XDCAM SD and HD variants, Windows Media, QuickTime, progressive DVD, and AVC/AAC for many popular mobile platforms."
The new features offered by the Vegas 7.0c software update reinforce the software's position as one of the most effective and powerful nonlinear editing tools for all video formats.
Additional enhancements include improved colour accuracy for XDCAM HD export, improved monitoring for DV, SD XDCAM, and HDV formats over SDI; improved VST support; 24p, 25p, and 30p HDV project templates; 640 x 480 export support for the Apple iPod and stream-compliant HD MPEG-2 templates for the Sony Blu-print professional Blu-ray authoring system.
"Sony's new HVR-V1 series boasts high picture quality as well as various new features including progressive scan," said Nobuaki Baba, Chief Business Strategist of Sony's Personal Video Division. "In addition, the HVR-DR60 has realized disk-based workflow which has been impossible with tape-based systems. We believe that Vegas updates will contribute to full utilization of the pictures taken with these products and further broaden the application of HDV," he added.
The Vegas 7.0c professional video and audio editing software update is free to all registered Vegas 7 users.
The Sony HVR-V1 series HDV camcorders will be available in December 2006 in most areas.
