VITEC Multimedia and Visible Light Sign Global Online Distribution Agreement
WINTER SPRINGS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 28, 1998--Thanks to
a new distribution agreement between Visible Light and VITEC
Multimedia, signed at the IBC (International Business Communications)
trade show in Amsterdam, Netherlands, MPEG users will now be able to
download the award-winning VITEC Multimedia Video Clip MPEG-2 SE
``VITEC is very excited about the online exposure for the special
edition of our famous MPEG-2 editing software. We strongly believe
that e-commerce is the way of the future for multimedia software
sales,'' said Lionel Zajde, marketing director for VITEC Multimedia.
``Our agreement with Visible Light will make our editing software
easily accessible to the MPEG community at a truly affordable price.
``Log on, have your credit card ready and for $99.00 you will be
ready to edit your MPEG-2 files within minutes,'' Zajde added.
The unprecedented MPEG-2 SE editing software will edit MPEG-2 in
a native format, with no dedicated hardware required. Also featured:
cut and paste editing or pre-editing of video clips and the ability to
clean up the end points of existing clips without re-encoding the
entire file. Applications include DVD, video kiosks, MPEG-2 archival,
VITEC's MPEG-2 SE editor has been modified from the PRO version
to be downloadable online, though the SE version is I & P frame
accurate only and does not support titling or the other MPEG utilities
like the PRO version. The PRO version is also available from Visible
Light. (I and B images means 3/25th of a second accuracy on PAL
sequences or 1/10th of a second accuracy on NTSC sequences with
standard GOP structure).

leader in video compression technology and has developed the online
