DT Videolabs Playback Pro

+ Playback Controller


PlaybackPro is a fully modern Macintosh application that takes advantage of improvements in software stability and graphics capabilities. Using one output as the operator interface, it sends clean video to the secondary video output, utilizing the graphics card for hardware acceleration with complete control over size, aspect ratio and levels. Since it provides much greater flexibility in both the field and studio, it is intended to replace hardware DDRs (digital disk recorders), DVD players and video tape machines.

While the digital revolution has changed the way video is edited, its effects haven't been truly felt in the live production industry, until now. PlaybackPro leads the way with a simple yet powerful interface that provides flexibility and control over the playback of video content. PlaybackPro is completely non-destructive to original video files, allowing the same file to be referenced multiple times with separate in and out points, geometry, settings and levels. All effects are rendered on-the-fly.
