Vancouver, British Columbia – November 2, 2011 – Singular Software™, a developer of workflow automation applications for digital media, is pleased to announce the public beta of Singular Software Presto™ for OS X (v2.0) with support for Adobe® Premiere Pro®.

We've received many inquiries from Adobe customers, and our team has been hard at work adding support for Premiere Pro," says Bruce Sharpe, CEO, Singular Software.

About Singular Software Presto
The Singular Software Presto application utilizes advanced head tracking and image-matching technology to simplify the entire editing process for creating presentation videos. Users start by importing video of the presenter and presentation screen into Premiere Pro (CS4 or newer; PluralEyes is also required for CS4 users, and recommended for CS5 or CS5.5). This project is then imported into Singular Software Presto to apply its automation magic and presentation layout tools.
Singular Software Presto creates a precisely timed slide track with bright slide images in place of the screen video by automatically synchronizing the original slide images with the video of the screen. The application's advanced tracking technology automatically keeps the presenter in view, alongside the slides, in appealing two-up layouts, and the resulting video can be used as is or customized with the provided templates.
