Videographics Engine for Mac and PC Now More Affordable

(Jamesburg, NJ – October 12, 1998) Digital Marketing International ( Inc.), distributor of CFE products in North America, is pleased to announce new, lower prices on the full line of CFE Gallea videographics engines for the Mac and PC platforms. These new prices are effective immediately and represent reductions of up to 33 percent compared to current levels.

Under the new structure, pricing for the PC version of Gallea starts at $3950 for the basic product. Optional on-board memory and a variety of input and output modules can raise the price to approximately $9500.

Turnkey PC-based systems are also available. CFE Intelligent Studio Systems can be purchased starting at under $10,000 with standard input and output. For full D1 support, DMI offers turnkey systems starting at under $12,000.

On the Macintosh side, three Gallea hardware and software bundles are available that include 32 MegaBytes (MB) of on-board memory. RGB and Alpha output is priced at $4995, RGB plus Component (YUV) I/O is $5995 and support for uncompressed D1 I/O is $8995.

The Gallea is a single slot PCI bus card that supports all popular video formats. It includes mixing, fading, and keying functions as standard features and is the only Macintosh solution that supports full resolution, uncompressed digital video capture and playback using high-speed disk arrays. The Gallea incorporates CFE’s patented DVESŪ (Digital Video Editing System) architecture, which provides advanced capabilities for the manipulation of digital video. This high-speed processing power makes the Gallea ideally suited for broadcast video applications. Up to 128 MegaBytes (MB) of standard DRAM SIMMs may be added to any Gallea, organized as two memory planes of up to 64 MB each.

"The success of the Gallea product line provides us with an opportunity to reduce our prices significantly," states Mike Skibra, President of DMI. "In the United States and around the world, companies are turning to Gallea for high quality video I/O. These price reductions should help continue that trend."

Due to the sales growth of Gallea and the other products distributed by DMI, the company has also recently moved to a new, larger facility. This new office is centrally located between New York City and Philadelphia and offers convenient access to the Washington, DC and Boston markets. It also provides sufficient space for DMI to offer systems integration services to its customers.
