Ulead Systems has released version 2 of the Ulead HD Plug-in with support for HDV content shot with the Sony HDR-FX1 camcorder.

Ulead HD is a plug-in for MediaStudio Pro 7 and brings high definition video editing to the digital video post-production suite with support for high-definition 1080i and 720p as well as other formats including MPEG-2. It previously offered support for JVC HDV camcorders.

As well as supporting the new HDR-FX1 camcorder, the latest version of the plug-in will support the upcoming Sony HVR-Z1U Professional HDV camcorder and HVR-M10 VTR - both due to ship in early 2005.

The plug-in is available now for £153 plus VAT. Users of the HD Plug-in for the JVC GR-HD1 and JY-HD10 camcorders can upgrade to for free. A bundle consisting of MediaStudio Pro 7 together with the HD Plug-in is available for £213 plus VAT.
