Accom Demonstrates HD Version of Industry Standard Abekas Dveous at NAB 2001

Apr 19, 2001, 01:00 ET from Accom

    LAS VEGAS, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Accom(R) (OTC Bulletin Board:   ACMM),
 (NAB Booth S4806) a leader in broadcast and professional video products,
 announced today at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention (NAB)
 that it is demonstrating its brand new addition to its Abekas(R) Dveous(R)
 family -- Dveous(R)/HD. Dveous/HD is a High Definition Digital Video Effects
 system, the next generation to the ever popular industry standard Dveous which
 is in use today worldwide by many post facilities and virtually all major
 broadcasters.
     Due to ship in summer 2001, Dveous/HD will also be available as an upgrade
 to existing Dveous systems, offering users a future-proof path into high
 definition production.
     Dveous/HD will have an identical feature set to the already familiar
 Dveous so that the migration from Standard Definition (SD) will completely be
 transparent to the operator. "It's still Dveous," commented Jim Barclay,
 Production Products Marketing Manager for Accom. "There are so many technical
 directors and editors worldwide who are already familiar with Dveous and we
 wanted to make sure they could move straight into HD without any additional
 training. Operators that know Dveous, will know Dveous/HD," concluded Barclay.
     Dveous/HD can be configured just like Dveous, either as a single twin or
 dual twin channel system. Dveous/HD will include powerful high-end features
 such as, re-Touch(TM) Color Corrector, Target Framestore, Wide Range DeFocus,
 SurfaceFX(TM) with Dual Light Sources, UltraWarp(TM) and the award-winning
 OrbitalFX(TM).
     Currently, Dveous is in use worldwide by ESPN, CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX,
 Seven Network Australia and BBC U.K. just to name a few and has been featured
 in the coverage of major broadcasting events such as the Olympics, SuperBowl,
 Academy Awards and the Grammy Awards.
