(Carmel, Indiana--October 24, 2008) Imagine Products, Inc. announced today the release and general availability of ShotPut Pro™ a new, automated offload application. The Pro edition offloads any video media including Panasonic P2 and AVCHD cards, Sony SxS, RED ONE and other digital media cards in a single application.

ShotPut Pro™ may also be used with any removable media such as CF, SD, or other memory cards for digital still photography.

Makes secure, verified copies at top speed without the overhead of Finder or Explorer. Available for Macintosh or Windows (PPC or Intel-Mac; Windows XP or Vista operating systems).

ShotPut Pro™ features Manual (Single card or volume) mode and Auto (Multiple card or volume) mode. Simply insert the card into a PowerBook or Notebook’s card slot, or plug in a mountable volume or card reader, and ShotPut Pro™ makes secure, verified copies of the volume's contents in up to three (3) locations.

ShotPut Pro™ features convenient integration with your favorite external DVD or Blu-ray™ disc burning application. Just program the ‘Burn Now’ button within ShotPut Pro™ by selecting the link to the burn application. ShotPut Pro™ will automatically set the first offload destination (on the manual and automatic dialog tabs) to your temporary ‘Burn Folder’. When offloads are complete, click the ‘Burn Now’ button on any of ShotPut Pro™’s dialogs to launch the disc application. ShotPut Pro™ for Windows also offers direct control of a Rimage Producer (Nasdaq: RIMG) disc production system for automated archives.

"We expect event videographers will particularly like the ability to make fast, multiple copies of their AVCHD or still photography memory cards" said Dan Montgomery, President of Imagine Products. "Being able to easily burn a DVD or Blu-ray disc for the client and archives will also be a popular convenience feature."

ShotPut Pro™ makes a printable activities report log of all the file transfer activities. This text file shows all the details including names of volumes and files, the copy destination names, file sizes, duration of each transfer and aggregate transfer time, date, etc. A great way to document and organize your project and billable time.
