added support for Canon 5D Mark II, JVC ProHD
Imagine Products has introduced new versions of its ShoutPut Pro and ProxyMill applications, which support workflows for Canon 5D Mark II and JVC ProHD digital cameras. ShoutPut Pro delivers tools for managing HD digital media, enabling users to make secure copies of a memory card or hard disk's contents, in up to three locations, along with the ability to create Blu-ray or DVD archivies. ProxyMill is an HD conversion software, that allows users to create HD Log files, to customize QuickTime codec, image quality or bit rates, and to make low-resolution H.264 or MPEG-4 QuickTime movies.
Users with older versions of the software can upgrade to receive the latest format support for Canon and JVC, as well as support for Apple's newest Snow Leopard operating system. The company will be demonstrating the updated software at the HD Expo-Createsphere (booth 610) in Burbank, California, where they will also be teaching users how to offload and archive files, and to automatically create self-contained, sharable proxies with visible timecode.
ShoutPut Pro is compatible with any Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and priced at $90, while ProxyMill works with Mac OS X 10.5 or later and is available for $200.
