Pinnacle release new digital DVD publishing solution

Pinnacle Systems have launched Pinnacle Expression, a complete, consumer-friendly solution for publishing digital photos and videos to CD and DVD.
The new software addresses the needs of digital still camera and DV camcorder owners who want to quickly create entertaining videos or digital photo slide shows, store them on long-lasting CDs or DVDs, and view them on a TV equipped with a set-top DVD player.
Simon Isted, UK Sales Manager for Consumer Products at Pinnacle Systems, said: “Expression is ideal for people who want to archive and share their photos and videos with a minimum amount of effort. Expression automates the process as much as possible and provides simple intuitive controls for everything else. Now anyone can create a Video CD or DVD from their digital photos or home movies.”
Pinnacle has timed the launch of Expression to ensure that consumers have everything they need to take advantage of its many features. DVD player sales are predicted to climb to 151 million this year, and CD burners are now standard on most home PCs.
With Pinnacle Expression, video can be imported directly from a DV camcorder using a PC’s FireWire interface or by dragging and dropping video files from the computer’s hard disk into the application. Expression automatically creates scene index menus to enable users to instant access to any scene in the video without having to rewind or fast-forward – just like a Hollywood DVD. Expression also lets users preview the project at any time, to make customising menus, rearranging clips, and adding effects such as fades, titles, music, fast and simple.
Pinnacle Expression can be used with Windows 98 SE/Me/XP/2000 systems and will be available from early October for SRP £29.99. In addition to the software, the package includes a label applicator, blank CD and DVD labels, blank jewel and DVD case labels, a blank DVD case and two CD-R discs.
