COMPUTER software, INTERACTIVE videos, DIGITAL video, and DIGITAL image processing
Software development firms Apple Computer Inc., and Adobe Systems Inc., recently put out a slew of digital-video software products, Adobe with Windows-only software and Apple offering Macintosh-only products. The most notable announcement this year has been Final Cut Pro HD from Apple. The video-editing software can capture, edit and broadcast native high-definition video content over a single FireWire cable while preserving the full quality of the original video footage. Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5, a new version of the company's nonlinear video-editing software, offers support for the import and export of industry standards such as Edit Decision Lists and the Advanced Authoring Format.
