Adobe Systems Incorporated has announced Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, a new release of the nonlinear editor, offering "breakthrough performance and features that drive post-production workflows".
The all new Mercury Playback Engine is 64-bit native, optimized for operating systems, multicore processors, and NVIDIA GPUs. Video professionals can maintain full frame rate, at full resolution when applying multiple color corrections and effects across many video layers, and when working on complex timelines and long-form projects with thousands of clips – whether a project is in SD, HD, 2K, or 4K. Editors can also mix and match AVCHD, P2, XDCAM, RED, and DSLR camera formats freely in the timeline, without rendering. Editing is said to be faster on laptops for in-field editing and with mid-range systems, the productivity gains measured in independent benchmarks conducted by Pfeiffer Consulting demonstrated up to 10 times performance increases over earlier versions on effects-heavy, high resolution projects.
Pricing & Availability
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 is scheduled to ship within 30 days with availability through Adobe Authorized Resellers, the Adobe Store and Adobe Direct Sales.
Available for both Mac and Windows, estimated street price for Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 is expected to be US$799. Upgrade pricing and volume licensing are available.
