Pinnacle Systems announced new Pinnacle Studio MovieBox Pinnacle Systems, Inc, announced late last month the latest editions of Pinnacle Studio MovieBox with HDV and AVCHD support. The new Pinnacle Studio MovieBox Plus and MovieBox Ultimate include a high-speed USB 2.0 video capture device and a full version of Pinnacle Studio Plus version 11 and Studio Ultimate version 11 respectively—the software that has been reaping awards for delivering robust HDV/AVCHD video editing and authoring capabilities.
With the new AVCHD support, users can capture video from the new Sony and Panasonic AVCHD camcorders and can edit their content directly, in its native format. Completed videos can then be burned to an HD DVD or AVCHD format disc using standard DVD media that can be played back by the latest HD DVD and Blu-ray players. The AVCHD standard stores the same amount of video in half the space required by the MPEG-2 format.

Like the earlier versions, the new editions of Pinnacle Studio MovieBox can also be used to capture video from analog sources such as an 8mm camcorder, a VCR, a TV or a set-top box; and from digital devices such as DV camcorders. Consumers can even unleash their creativity by mixing legacy analog tapes, DV video, high definition video and photos to create a project that will be up-sampled to HD resolution.

Pinnacle Studio MovieBox Plus and Pinnacle Studio MovieBox Ultimate with HDV/AVCHD support have MSRPs of US$119.99 and US$149.99 respectively.
