Phase One and StudioPlus Software Announces New Product Integration
Phase One®, the world leader in professional digital imaging solutions and StudioPlus Software LLC, the industry leader in business management and digital workflow solutions, together announce the release of new product integration, at the PMA 07 International Convention and Trade Show.
The new StudioPlus 2007 product now features a true RAW workflow utilizing the award-winning Capture One RAW software. By integrating the features of these two great products, photographers can now experience the most automated RAW workflow available.
Phase One has over the years sold the combined Capture One and StudioPlus packages under the names Portrait One Sales and Portrait One Executive. Emerging from this successful cooperation and a growing demand for an improved and updated version, StudioPlus and Phase One have agreed that StudioPlus takes over future development, support and sales of Portrait One Sales and Portrait One Executive.
"We believe this solution is of great value to our Portrait software customers. The partnership with StudioPlus Software means that our customers will get more frequent updates to their solution and better and more focused technical support", states Kenneth Breit Bedsted, Vice President of Software Development, Phase One.
With the new integration, RAW images can be copied from a memory card, archived to a DVD, and converted to JPG previews with a single click. The RAW files can be edited, color corrected, white balanced, and adjusted using Capture One. StudioPlus will then present the edited images to the client for ordering with a feature-rich set of presentation tools. Following, StudioPlus will develop the RAW files using the Capture One engine so the images can be retouched in an image editor. Completing the process, StudioPlus then renders final cropped, colorized, and retouched images ready for print.
"Combining the great benefits of RAW image files with an automated digital workflow has been one of the greatest challenges of our industry. We are excited to provide to photographers such a solution that gives them the best of both worlds-the highest image quality with the ease of an automated workflow. We are thrilled to partner with Phase One to offer this integration," states Matthew Hunt, president of StudioPlus Software.
