ShotPut EXpress released

Imagine has released a new video utility for Macs, ShotPut EXpress. The software is intended for use with Sony's EX SxS cards, which are tied to the XDCamHD EX format; after inserting an SxS card into a computer's ExpressCard slot, ShotPut automatically verifies and copies clips to as many as three different locations; alternately, users can choose to copy videos manually. In any case a logfile is produced, naming cards, file destinations and other relevant information.

The pricipal advantage of ShotPut is said to be speed, as it is able to bypass the overhead presented by Finder. It also checks for errors and duplicate content, however, and can be set to automatically erase and rename an SxS card so it is ready for more shooting. The software costs $49, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher along with 16GB of free hard drive space.
