Singular Software Releases World's First Multi-Camera Automatic Synchronization Product

Share Article

PluralEyes™ from Singular Software is an application that works with Apple's Final Cut Pro to dramatically accelerate multicamera workflow. For the first time, audio and video clips can be synchronized automatically and without the need for timecode. This makes the recording process faster and simpler, and eliminates a serious bottleneck in post-production.

Multiple camera angles and separate audio make all kinds of video productions really come alive: weddings, music videos, corporate events, online training, interviews and news gathering are some examples. Today's equipment and editing software are affordable and help with some of the process, but leave it to the user to take care of synchronization. PluralEyes™ fills that gap.

Singular Software Inc. has released PluralEyes™, a new product that automatically synchronizes audio and video clips without the need for timecode. Targeted at the independent video professional, PluralEyes™ drastically simplifies multicamera productions, both during filming and in post-production.

PluralEyes™ determines synchronization information from audio that is already present in the recorded material. During the shoot, there is no need to connect cameras and audio recorders or take any other special steps to prepare. And when shooting is done, the creative editing process can get started right away without the time-consuming step of matching clips manually. This removes the biggest bottlenecks in both production and post-production.

D.I.S. Consulting Corporation has recently reported that more than 65% of audio-video professionals surveyed picked multicamera and automation features as the most desirable in a new video editing system. PluralEyes™ directly addresses these needs with a fully automated, one-button synchronization process.

Early users of PluralEyes™ have already saved hours of time and say that it "worked fantastically," is "truly amazing" and is "very easy to use."

Bruce Sharpe, CEO of Singular Software, said, "Multiple camera angles and separate audio make all kinds of video productions really come alive: weddings, music videos, corporate events, online training, interviews and news gathering are some examples.

The first version of PluralEyes™ works with Apple's Final Cut Pro editing software and is priced at $149 USD. Trial versions of PluralEyes™ can be downloaded from the product website at http://www.singularsoftware.com/autosync/.
