Sony to release Vegas Pro 8 Sony will release the next version of its award-winning nonlinear editing (NLE) digital video software, Vegas Pro 8, this month. The powerful software package provides professional editors with precise control over complex DV, HDV and XDCAM projects through powerful tools for editing material shot in multi-camera environments. Sony Vegas Pro 8 will be available from September 10th.
"Vegas Pro 8 solves many of the technical challenges creative professionals are currently facing as they are tasked with producing content for platforms as varied as the mobile screen to high definition, broadcast-quality video," said Dave Chaimson, vice president of marketing for Sony Creative Software.

He continued: "Equipped with a new 32-bit floating point video engine, Vegas Pro 8 delivers increased quality and accuracy of final output while handling a 10-bit serial digital interface (SDI) at full capacity, which is used for transmission of uncompressed, unencrypted digital video signals."

Vegas Pro 8 is fully Vista-compatible and expertly delivers broadcast-ready, high definition content through its flexible user interface and extensive professional toolset. Vegas Pro 8 now features a ProType titler for superior vector-based title generation and automation.

New specialized template support for developing digital signage provides tools and features for portrait style video authoring required for enhancing visual displays at retail shops, tradeshows and other events requiring compelling imagery at the 9:16 resolution.

"The Vegas Pro 8 designers seemed to have heeded well the wish-lists of both professional and amateur videographers alike in crafting this generation of the software," said Richard Doherty, research director and co-founder of digital media analyst firm the Envisioneering Group.

Vegas Pro 8 professional software will be available on September 10 from the company's extensive worldwide network of retail and academic dealers, as well as from the Sony Creative Software website. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the software is U.S. $699.95. Upgrade pricing is available for current Vegas users.
