Pinnacle Systems Ships CineWave 1.2(September 14, 2001)
CineOffline allows CineWave users to maximize costly storage space by using offline qualities to reduce the size of the media within a project. Even though a scaled down version of the footage is stored to disk, the user still edits with a full-size image through CineWave's real-time hardware scaling features. With CineOffline, users can conform or scale up the file to full resolution at uncompressed standard definition and/or high definition quality for finishing at anytime. Furthermore, CineOffline enables one to edit with CineWave on a computer that does not have the TARGA Cine Engine hardware.
Apple Computer and Pinnacle Systems have partnered closely to provide support for most HD formats through the combination of Final Cut Pro 2 and CineWave 1.2 software. In fact, CineWave 1.2 includes support for most popular HD formats including 1080i and 1080/23.976p, the most widely used frame rate for film production.
CineWave 1.2 includes Commotion Pro 4, a full version of Apple's Final Cut Pro 2, Knoll Light Factory, and the TARGA Cine Engine. CineWave provides numerous editing capabilities for acquisition, post-production, and delivery in most any format, including: DV, DigiBeta, uncompressed 601, PAL, NTSC, 1080i, 1080p, 4:3, 16:9, DVD and Web. There are two Digital Tether ports for connecting to a family of SD and HD break-out boxes for flexible I/O options. CineWave is available from Pinnacle Systems' dealers worldwide at a starting price of $6,495 (USD). CineWave 1.2 is a software upgrade for existing customers.
