Adobe Systems has announced that they will be announcing ALL their new CS5 products on Monday, April 12.
As a note, we will be covering their announcement on our NAB Special Reports, which you can hear as part of the Digital Production Buzz. We’ll have more on that as we get closer.
One of the exciting new features in Adobe Premiere is what Adobe calls their Mercury Engine – a REALLY fast rendering and playback engine exclusively for Adobe Premiere. For those of you wondering what 64-bit memory addressing and GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) support can mean for video, you need to see what these new versions can do. This also gives MacPro owners a reason for owning all that horsepower.
Anyway, this morning, Adobe sent me a note about rumors that are floating around about this new version — many of them are not true. So, if you are interested in learning more, check out this Adobe blog posting debunking Mercury myths:
P.S. I’m getting a lot of email asking what Apple is doing. I am sure that Apple is not standing still. However, April announcements belong to Adobe.
