Paris, France, December 20, 2005
– DxO Labs announces today that DxO Optics Pro Starter Edition is on sale via the company’s e-store (store.dxo.com
). DxO Optics Pro Starter Edition will be available through selected retailers starting late in January 2006.
Specifically designed for advanced digicams, also known as "ZLR", "SuperZoom" or "Bridge" cameras, DxO Optics Pro Starter Edition supports digital cameras including: Sony DSC-H1, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1, Canon PowerShot Pro S2 IS, Kodak P850, Olympus SP-500, Nikon Coolpix 8800, Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z6, Panasonic DMC-FZ30, Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2, Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200, and Sony F-828. More camera support will be added in the future.
DxO Optics Pro Starter Edition can be thought of as a "camera upgrade". The software processes JPEG images and incorporates the same award-winning image enhancement technologies as DxO Optics Pro Standard and DxO Optics Pro Elite editions. DxO Optics Pro Starter Edition provides:
Perceptible and genuine image enhancement;
The ability to work entirely automatically;
Complete robustness so as to never degrade image quality.
Another unique benefit of DxO Optics Pro Starter Edition is its automated workflow. The user simply drops images into the program and presses "Start" to improve the images, leaving DxO Optics Pro to do all the complex image enhancement tasks automatically. This has several important benefits:
Virtually no learning curve; optimal results are achieved from the first use of the program.
Much less time is spent in front of the computer tweaking images, leaving more time to do other things such as shooting more pictures!
Availability and pricing
DxO Optics Pro Starter Edition is available for Windows and Macintosh.
DxO Optics Pro Starter Edition is priced at £41.70 / €64 (excluding VAT and sales taxes).
