Sony Vegas 7.0e Update Supports AVCHD Camcorders

Sony Creative Software has announced that the 7.0e update for Sony Vegas will provide further support for tapeless workflows by allowing users to edit files recorded on Sony’s AVCHD high-definition camcorders.
This includes the recently HDR-SR5E, HDR-SR7E, HDR-SR8E, and the HDR-CX6E. These cameras offer users the ability to record in full 1080 HD video and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound on tapeless formats such as flash media cards and hard disk drives.
“With the surge in popularity for generating and editing high-definition content, Sony Creative Software continues to provide enhancements to our applications to meet the needs of our customer base by providing new technology solutions for editing HD faster and more efficiently than ever before,” said Dave Chaimson, VP of Marketing, Sony Creative Software. “The new Vegas 7.0e update arms users with the specific creation and production tools for Sony’s AVCHD cameras and provides new levels of support for those working with these optical and file-based models.”
Vegas 7.0e allows users of Sony AVCHD video cameras to create high-definition or standard-definition content using files recorded to their AVCHD camera’s hard disk, flash memory, or DVD. Skipping the real-time capturing stage common for tape-based projects eliminates a time-consuming step prior to editing. In addition to the models listed above, the Vegas 7.0e update also currently supports Sony’s other AVCHD camera models such as HDR-UX1E, HDR-UX3E, HDR-UX7E and HDR-SR1E.
“With the latest update, Sony Vegas is a great choice for anybody looking for an AVCHD editing solution, where you can import and edit native AVCHD files recorded with AVCHD Handycam camcorders,” said Takashi Kondo, Vice President of Digital Imaging Europe. “With an expanding range of AVCHD Handycams, including newly released HDD and Memory Stick models, Sony offers the perfect experience for those who wish to enjoy HD shooting and non-linear editing.”
The Vegas 7.0e professional video and audio editing software update is free to all registered Vegas 7 users starting on May 1, 2007.
