NewSoft is also debuting two free applets, Ez-Picture and CD Labeler, which will also be available for free download to PowerSuite users from the NewSoft Web site. After download, icons for each will then be displayed on the PowerSuite menu for quick and easy access. Ez-Picture provides consumers with the ability to edit and crop their digital photo images before printing, sending or importing the images into their other artistically inspired projects. Features include tools to reduce redeye; light, color, and image correctors; hand editing tools to remove or correct objects; and more. CD Labeler enables customers to personalize their CD and DVD projects. After creating a disc label, users can print to any standard media label using any printer.
NewSoft is also demonstrating a third applet, Music Converter at the DVD Alliance Pavilion, which will enable Presto! DVD PowerSuite customers to cross-convert their music files between WMA, WAV, MP3, OGG, and Music CD formats. Pricing on the Music Converter applet, which will also be available for download from the NewSoft Web site in February, is still being determined.
The PowerSuite provides full video capture capabilities with real-time MPEG-2 encoding to all leading video file formats that can be burned to discs on the fly. Users can capture raw video footage directly to DVD±RW or DVD-RAM for immediate direct-to-disc editing, and even inexperienced users can add still or motion menu templates, titles, transitions, effects, background music, and DVD menus. The PowerSuite offers Real-time Preview enabling users to preview edits and revisions without rendering.
Presto! DVD PowerSuite can also be used to burn data, music, or simply make a personal back-up copy of non-copyright protected CDs and DVDs. A video editing tool and a media player are also included with a storyboard feature and an advanced mode with five separate timeline tracks. Presto! DVD PowerSuite also includes a built-in DVD Player with all common DVD functions as well as the ability to create playlists and set parental controls. Presto! DVD PowerSuite supports DVD±R/RW, DVD-Video, DVD+VR, DVD-VR, and CD formats.
Compatible with Windows 98SE/Me/2000 and XP operating systems, boxed copies of NewSoft's Presto! DVD PowerSuite are now available through the NewSoft Web site for $69.95.
