Miglia Technology, a UK Company, plans to open a new support center in Atlanta, GA. The move follows the recent acquisition of the intellectual property and sole rights to Seattle based PowerR’s Director’s Cut analog/digital video converter.
The new facility is based in a development building just outside Atlanta. It will open for business on May 27.
“It has a great infrastructure which means we can be running at maximum efficiency in the minimum time, in order to better serve our customers,” said Brian Love, Miglia’s distribution sales manager.
Director’s Cut is a Mac compatible PAL/NTSC analogue to digital video (and reverse) converter. It doesn’t require any drivers for use. The system simply “sees” a DV (digital video) camera and is ready to receive a video signal from whatever source.
Miglia Director’s Cut lets users of video editing applications edit their analog video archives together with their new digital video footage on a FireWire enabled computer. The Director’s Cut will also enable digital video editors to export their finished movies to any analog video device, such as VHS tape, according to Miglia spokesperson Nick Peart.
Separate audio recording devices such as tape and mini disc recorders can also be used to provide continuous sound tracks for laying on top of the movies, in addition to the sound track from the video. Miglia Director’s Cut works with both PAL and NTSC video formats. Director’s Cut has separate composite, S-Video, sound-in/out connectors for video and audio input/output. A unique feature is the ability to watch the imported or exported video and audio footage on a preview monitor, Peart said.
