 capabilities but do not have a DV-enabled computer. These cards include the
 Pyro Platinum DV from ADS Technologies and the DV200 from Pinnacle.
     "Adobe works closely with its partners through the certification process
 to address the needs of our customers and ensure product compatibility," said
 Erik Lundblade, OEM product manager for Adobe Premiere. "As a result,
 Adobe Premiere is bundled in more real-time editing solutions than any other
 non-linear editing software."

 cards for Mac and Windows platforms, and will also test new cards as they are
 released. A complete list of certified video capture cards for Adobe Premiere
 6.0 can be found on the Adobe Web site at
