Pulse Digital Ships Two New Versions Of DVD SelectNetIntegrated digital asset management and DVD authoring systems (February 02, 2005)
Pulse Digital, the leading developer of automated DVD production and digital asset management (DAM) solutions, announced today that it is releasing the next version of its flagship product DVD SelectNet, the automated solution for authoring and producing professional quality DVD discs, on-demand.
At the same time, Pulse Digital is releasing its second product DVD SelectNet SE, an affordable single-user edition of the DVD SelectNet product. Heralded as a breakthrough for smaller organizations desiring the ability to create professional-quality DVDs quickly, DVD SelectNet SE brings that power to smaller post production facilities, corporate marketing groups, religious organizations, and educational facilities.
“The key to our system is the simplicity and automation,” said Mark Hirsch, Pulse Digital’s Chief Technology Officer. “The DVD SelectNet platform allows organizations of every size to have fast, network-based DVD creation…with little or no training. By introducing DVD SelectNet SE, these features are no longer limited to our large-scale, enterprise clients, such as ad agency Grey Worldwide.”
Pulse Digital’s patent-pending solutions enable any organization to easily assemble a library of digital videos, images, PowerPoint presentations, Word & pdf documents (and any other digital content) and then automatically create customized DVDs for playback on any standard DVD player or DVD-equipped computer. Because DVD SelectNet includes an asset management system and integrates with others, the organization benefits from centralizing the management of its most precious files. In the process, the organization streamlines its operations and saves money. And though DVD SelectNet can record the disc to the internal DVD recorder, it also integrates with the entire line of Rimage robotic DVD recorders/printers, providing tremendous flexibility and capacity.
These custom DVDs, delivered in minutes, are of extremely high quality and require almost no training to produce. The ease of using DVD SelectNet enables any organization to reduce costs by streamlining operations and enabling all employees to create high-quality DVDs, eliminating bottlenecks in the production process.
By simplifying the production of DVDs, many different organizations are finding it easy to create these versatile discs for a variety of applications. Corporate marketing groups are using DVDs to deliver marketing videos and other materials such as product pdfs and Excel budgets. Because DVD discs can now be created so quickly, post-production facilities and advertising agencies are now using DVDs to deliver discs for client Review & Approval. Universities and High Schools are using DVD discs to deliver educational footage from their vast archives. Medical facilities are using DVDs for advanced medical training and post-operative patient education.
“In spite of the automation, these DVD’s have sizzle, from motion video buttons to Hollywood-style labels,” adds Pulse President Lee Golinello. “One unique feature, the Hybrid DVD, allows any digital files to be attached to your DVD. Simply select your files to include on the disc, and DVD SelectNet automatically records those files along with the video, audio and menu pages. Now instruction manuals, budgets or product literature, for example, can be included on the DVD. It’s very slick.”
DVD SelectNet ships as an integrated turn-key system providing complete media asset management capabilities plus the ability to author, create, record and label the DVDs. The entire process is fully automated and requires no human intervention. Because the DVD SelectNet platform is an open XML-based system, it has also been integrated with other leading Digital Asset Management systems.
