Carmel, IN, November 18, 2008- Imagine Products, Inc. announced today the release and general availability of its newest version of HDLog™ for Macintosh featuring support for the new Panasonic AVC-Intra Codec, and addition of deluxe media card offloading functions. The new automated secure offloading works any video media including Panasonic P2 and AVCHD cards, Sony SxS, RED ONE and other digital media cards in a single application.
HDLog™ works well with P2 formats ranging from DVCPRO HD to DV and now also supports the new 10-bit AVC-Intra codec. New P2 import option lets you automatically replace the low resolution bitmap thumbnail provided by the camera, with a larger, clean JPEG for better previewing, web posting and printing.
AVC-Intra is Panasonic’s [NYSE symbol: PC] new codec that uses an intra-frame compression system. It complies with the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 international standard based on advanced motion-image compression technology, and offers both superb image quality and high compression.

HDLog™ features a host of time-saving P2 clip management functions. In addition to viewing clip thumbnails, users can instantly play clips up to full screen, shot mark specific clips, edit a clip’s metadata (support for multiple languages included) including the text memo field, print, and export selected clips to Final Cut Pro with complete metadata.
In addition, the new version of HDLog™ incorporates all of the secure, verified media card offload functions found in ShotPut Pro™. Copy any type cards or discs to up to three (3) locations at top speed. Select multiple sources to offload simultaneously (e.g. Panasonic 5-card reader).
