Consumer and professional media creation is growing now faster than ever.

As more and more video makes its way into our everyday lives, manufacturers have to update, improve and add features to their editing and distribution software to keep up with the ever-changing demands of its users. We've seen lots of great updates in editing software this year on both the consumer and professional levels, giving the editor even more options to choose from.

Technology markets are doing everything they can to help the consumer make more media and share it faster and easier than ever before. read more...
