ProPresenter 3.4 ships
Renewed Vision announced a free update to its lyric presentation and media playback application, ProPresenter. Version 3.4 introduces the Alpha Keyer Module which produces a true key/fill output for professional quality CG integration with broadcast level video switchers. This is the first time key/fill outputs have been added into software designed specifically for the church market, the company claims. ProPresenter manages entire lyric, video and audio clip libraries in a simple interface and can also playback media with cross-dissolves, cross-fading video and audio, optional Firewire or SDI video output and pre-sequenced slide presentations. Pricing begins at $400 but additional features can be added for greater versatility.
Three screen support has been added to the Advanced Module allowing simple, single computer support for three screen output. The module allows the user to place text on any of the three screens and then tile or stretch backgrounds to span across the screens.
"Now using an off the shelf Mac, ProPresenter and a TripleHead2Go churches have a very simple yet powerful means of achieving a fantastic looking set for their congregation," the company said.
