PRESS RELEASE: Photodex Corporation Releases Professional Slide Show Software, ProShow Producer
AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Photodex(R) Corporation today released ProShow(R) Producer, the first high-end multimedia slide show presentation product designed specifically for professional photographers. Producer joins the industry leading ProShow product line as the top tier program. It is equipped with powerful new features that streamline workflow and enable professional photographers to quickly and efficiently create quality slide show presentations that sell. Unique features in ProShow Producer include multiple layers per slide, RAW file support, custom show templates, professional DVD menu authoring, color profile awareness, watermarking, caption interactivity, and manual show control.
"Photography consumers now want more than just print packages. The need for professional tools is felt industry wide among photographers," says Paul Schmidt, President, Photodex Corporation. "Producer allows a photographer to create a compelling DVD slide show to sell as the cornerstone of their digital services, as an add-on product, or as a promotional tool to boost their business."
ProShow Producer's enhanced workflow capabilities make it fast and easy to create highly customized slide shows that sell. Slide show templates and menu templates can be created to minimize repetitive work. RAW file support, new to ProShow Producer, saves file conversion time when using high-resolution images. The encoding speed of Producer has also been optimized for faster performance. It is up to ten times faster than other industry leading DVD authoring and video editing software applications.
PC shows and DVD menus can now be branded and customized to represent a photographer's identity. ProShow Producer allows a photographer to customize every aspect of a DVD menu including layout, pages, and color scheme, giving them more control over the output quality. For PC Shows, photographers can customize the progress status bar, the volume bar and title bar text, the CD icon, and more. This allows photographers to promote their business, not the product they used to create the show.
ProShow Producer also includes more creativity functions than its predecessor. The layering function allows photographers to add multiple images and videos to a single slide, even with transparency and masking capabilities. The interactivity function makes it possible to use text as links to other slides, websites, or menus, giving photographers further control over their slide shows and enabling them to generate more revenue from their work.
Pricing and Availability
ProShow Producer is available from http://www.photodex.com for $499.95. For a limited time only, ProShow Producer is available at a special introductory price of $399.95. A fully functional trial is available for download.
