This expansion, along with the introduction of Adobe Production Studio, has enabled the creation of seven new Adobe OpenHD turnkey solutions supporting HDV to realtime compressed and uncompressed HD, which will be available starting in February.
Adobe has worked closely with the OpenHD alliance partners, testing the all-new Adobe Production Studio with each of the specific capture cards and hardware configurations to help ensure the highest performance and reliability.

Adobe Production Studio includes new versions of After Effects 7.0, Premiere Pro 2.0, Audition 2.0, Encore DVD 2.0 and the latest versions of Photoshop CS2 and Illustrator CS2, with time-saving innovations such as Dynamic Link, to provide a comprehensive software toolset for video and audio editing, motion graphics, visual effects and DVD authoring. The combination of Adobe Production Studio and Adobe OpenHD-certified systems means that creative professionals will now have access to the scalability and reliability they need to support their HDV, SD and HD workflows.

"We're excited to add such an impressive list of companies to the Adobe OpenHD alliance, expanding our ability to provide the most comprehensive desktop HD offerings on the market today," says Jim Guerard, vice president of Web and video products for Adobe. "The new turnkey HD systems provide solutions to address the needs of creatives and videographers up to the largest post production houses. With each milestone we reach and each new partner that comes aboard, the Adobe OpenHD alliance is making HD technology more affordable and accessible to a wider audience of creative professionals."
