Heuris, a manufacturer of video compression and processing tools, has released DVD ConnexIT, an import plug-in for Adobe Premiere that lets you import materials from DVD recorders, DVD Multi drives and camcorders for editing and export.
With the plug-in, you can take a disc out of the DVD recorder, and put it in the DVD multi drive in their computer. The data can be read and edited from the disc in Adobe Premiere and exported to other formats. Unencrypted DVD-Video discs may also be imported, read and edited in Adobe Premiere with the DVD ConnexIT plug-in, according to Brian Quandt, president of Heuris.
DVD ConnexIT is currently available for US$249.
