MediaWare Solutions Ships MPEG-2 Editor(September 18, 2001)
MPEG-2 is the core video format for DVD, digital broadcast and video-on-demand. It is difficult to edit well and while many products claim to support MPEG-2 editing, few do it right. Also video-editing tools on a PC are too complicated. People want to define some clips quickly and easily, drag them into an editor and press a button to generate a new video. For these users a tool like MyFlix XE makes sense. You dont need a full post-production tool to clean-up and edit MPEG-2 footage. The high-end editors have effects and many publishing options, but they tend to be expensive and users have a challenging learning curve just to cut and paste footage.
MyFlix XE fills a gap in MPEG editors. Market research shows there is a strong need for compact, powerful, affordable and fast editors that do the job with no nonsense and no desktop clutter. If you want to keep track of your contacts you dont carry around a database server with you, you use a PDA. The same story holds with MPEG video. You dont need a full post-production suite to clean up and join MPEG-2 clips together; hence we like to think of MyFlix XE as a Digital Video Assistant, like a PDA for video. MyFlix XE is perfect for users that want a fast easy to use tool to edit MPEG-2 program streams; it supports MPEG-2, MPEG-1 and VCD video formats. XE has a drag and drop interface, good MPEG-2 decoding, audio rip and dub and a small footprint so it doesnt dominate the desktop.
MediaWare Solutions (MWS) develops leading products and technologies for sale and license to industry. Key MWS technologies provide customers with innovative capabilities for MPEG video management, navigating and editing. With MediaWare products large unwieldy digital video files become easily accessed assets for marketing, entertainment and information retrieval.
