PRESS RELEASE: Cancellation of Nikon View Pro software release
Tokyo Mar. 2007 - Nikon Corporation has made the difficult decision to cancel the release of high-speed image management and browsing software, Nikon View Pro, the launch of which had been announced on February 21, 2006.
We offer our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause to customers who had anticipated the release of this product, as well as to distributors, retailers, and any other concerned parties.
Despite our preparations to release the software on schedule, the environment surrounding image handling is undergoing major changes. We decided to suspend the release based on our judgment that the new software's performance would not be optimal for the new environment. We are currently developing a new generation of image management and browsing software for download from our website, and plan to begin offering this before the end of 2007.
We assure you that we are diligently working to develop innovative new products in response to market demands, and thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to your continued patronage.
