has shipped a new, expanded feature set for 844/X, their system for multi-layer content design. Though the system comes on Wintel hardware, there is one new feature of interest to Mac users.
844/X version 1.1 adds Mac application integration. There’s InstantMedia support for Mac-based platforms that allows graphical elements created on a Mac to be brought directly into the 844/X timeline.
Otherwise, the new 844/X software (version 1.1) release includes more than 100 new features and enhancements to the system’s capabilities, according to Rick Keilty, director of product marketing for 844/X at Media 100.
844/X Version 1.1 software is now shipping on all new 844/X systems and will be provided to all existing 844/X customers via their Platinum Support contracts.
