VideoReDo TVSuite Launched
At CES ShowStoppers in Las Vegas
Tool Easily Edits, and Creates TV Show DVDs, Lets Users Cut Through Complexity
and Go From Editing Offensive Material to Burning a DVD in Minutes
LAS VEGAS, NV – (January 7, 2008) – VideoReDo, a leader in frame-accurate native MPEG video editing, today announced the launch of its newest product, VideoReDo TVSuite at the Showstoppers event during the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, being held January 7, 2008 at the Wynn Hotel and Casino.
With the popularity of TiVo-like DVR set-top boxes and personal video recorders (PVRs), and the millions of online video and digital TV channel choices, it’s fast becoming a world where TV fans can watch what they want, where, how, and when they want. So it’s not surprising that more people are looking for an easy way to author their TV shows to DVD. In most cases, this involves having a PC with a TV tuner card, and the trend is growing: a study from In-Stat/MDR shows worldwide PC-TV tuner sales will grow to 50.6 million in 2011. With this growth comes new capabilities like VideoReDo TVSuite.
VideoReDo TVSuite makes editing, authoring and burning DVDs of TV shows easier than ever. The product is a boon to PC-TV tuner users who like to capture video, want to remove offensive video (often a commercial), and then burn the result to a DVD – quickly and easily. Before VideoReDo TVSuite, it might take hours to work through the same process, using complicated “all-in-one” movie camera video editors or back-up DVD software products. In contrast, VideoReDo TV Suite is a best-of-breed solution that was specifically designed to easily edit and quickly burn a TV show onto a DVD.
“Once you have your video on the PC the beauty of VideoReDo TVSuite is that it takes you front-to-back through the process of editing and burning a DVD very quickly and easily,” said Tom Levers, Vice President of VideoReDo. “It’s a simple, to-the-point product because we built it around the needs of the user who capture TV content using a tuner card, or set-top-box, who want to edit out the offensive video that is often commercials and then burn it to a DVD to share with friends and family.
VideoReDo TVSuite includes all of the features previously found on VideoReDo’s latest editing product, VideoReDo Plus. That product is the gold standard for video editors designed to use native MPEG technology (smart rendering), which delivers extremely fast editing and file processing capabilities while maintaining original video and audio quality. The application lets consumers quickly edit TV shows based on their interests and viewing preferences or, as the product’s tag line says, “cut to the good parts of TV”. Now, with VideoReDo TVSuite, users can go a step further and take that edited video and burn it to a DVD for easily saving or sharing, without involving yet another software program or sacrificing audio/video quality.
TVSuite is especially useful for TV/PVR/DVR users who like to capture long programming, like TV shows, sporting events and movies. TVSuite lets users quickly edit these longer videos using tools like TV Suite’s Ad-Detective feature, which is a computer-assisted commercial detection and removal function. The TVSuite’s Quick-Sync feature automatically detects and corrects synchronization problems caused by common over-the-air transmission and reception issues; this is especially useful for users who burn DVDs from recorded material or convert from MPEG2 to rehost content to other formats and devices like portable media players.
VideoReDo TVSuite is available for $74.99 (US) on the company’s web site at www.videoredo.com.
