CARMEL, IN (June 9, 2008) – Imagine Products, Inc. announced today the release and general availability of two new versions of it’s most popular P2-enabled videologgers:
“HD Log set the ‘Gold Standard’ for P2 viewing at NAB 2006 with it’s instant import and preview utilizing QuickTime reference files, a methodology now followed by nearly all P2 enabled Macintosh applications” said Dan Montgomery, President of Imagine Products, Inc. “We’ve added even more convenience features to preview, catalog and archive P2 media on both Macintosh and Windows platforms.”
The software has a totally retooled ‘Offloading’ feature for making FAST copies of P2 cards to up to three (3) locations. Offloading now works with cards of any name, or ‘Untitled’ and ‘NO NAME’ cards. It makes sequential copies from Panasonic 5-card readers, or P2 Store, plus any number of additional mounted volumes.
The offload process unlocks all the files and folders, making them easy to work with including eventual deletion from scratch disks. Several possible auto-naming conventions promote consistency and accuracy of copies. You can even clear the card contents and rename it, all in one easy setup. There’s also an auto-offload mode to make quick work of stacks of cards.
Another new feature is the Verification Report of the offloading activities. The report lists the cards/volumes copied, where saved and named, date, billable time, and verification results. The report may be saved or printed.
P2 functions are grouped for easier access in both applications, including a new direct ‘P2 Import’ menu item to speed clip viewing, and the popular P2 Repair Wizard (for regenerating damaged or missing metadata files and the P2 folder structure). Both loggers also feature Copy and Paste clips from various cards’ contents then Save As>New P2 Volume to output just selects to your NLE.
