Austin TX, May 12, 2003 - Photodex Corporation today announced the release of ProShowTM 1.2, a new update to the company's popular slide show presentation software. ProShow 1.2 builds on the success of the Photodex ProShow product line by adding new features and functionality in response to user feedback.
As consumer and professional digital imaging continues to grow, users are taking their digital images beyond their desktop. Using ProShow, users can easily create high quality shows using any collection of digital images and output in various formats for use in DVD players, computers and e-mail. Users can choose from over 170 high impact transition effects, add sound tracks, and apply captions. ProShow is the only slide show software to offer a complete collection of output possibilities within one program -- over 15 different output formats. From within one program, users can create video CDs for playback on a DVD player, self-contained executables (perfect for e-mailing or posting online), MPEG video files, screen savers, PC autorun CDs and more.
The new ProShow 1.2 update responds to the needs of today's digital imaging users by adding new features which make creating the perfect show faster and easier than ever before. ProShow 1.2 includes a new real-time sound sync interface which allows users to synchronize their shows with a soundtrack while listening to the audio. Using this new feature makes creating a perfectly timed slide show as easy as listening to music and tapping the mouse to the beats. The new global caption support in version 1.2 caters to professional users, allowing users of ProShow Gold 1.2 to quickly apply consistent captions across their entire show -- perfect for professional photographers who need to add file names or copyright information. Visual size meters in ProShow 1.2 help users determine the size of the final show before the creation process is even complete, and the all new video CD still support allows for the inclusion of higher resolution still image slide shows on video CDs.
"The release of ProShow version 1.2 is a stepping stone for defining what a slide show program should be. It is now the market leader with its underlying technology offering the highest quality consumer slide show software available," said Photodex President Paul Schmidt. "The technology we are using in ProShow will go unmatched and is defining the slide show market." added Schmidt.
High-quality transitions and one of the fastest, highest quality video renderers on the market make ProShow 1.2 a must-have for anyone making slide shows with digital images and music. Professional transitions, global captioning, and the ability to compress the images for improved output size is a must have for professional photographers. ProShow can create astounding shows that will impress the most critical viewers. A great tool for proofing photos, sharing precious memories and even making sales presentations. A combination of ProShow's power and ease of use for the novice user makes it a favorite among those who have tried multiple slide show programs.
ProShow 1.2 is available in two versions. ProShow provides everything needed to create compelling shows, while ProShow Gold adds additional features and higher quality output methods. Both ProShow 1.2 and ProShow Gold 1.2 are available now from www.photodex.com and provide a fully functional 15-day trial. ProShow may be purchased for $29.95 (electronic delivery).
