Portland, OR - onOne Software, Inc., announces today that Mask Pro 4 – the upgrade to the company’s popular digital image masking plug-in Mask Pro 3 – is now shipping. Mask Pro 4 provides a complete collection of Photoshop® plug-in tools that allow users unprecedented flexibility when tackling the most challenging masking job. And this new version focuses on teaching the user how to best use this comprehensive toolset for masking a wide range of images.As in the previous version, onOne Software’s Mask Pro 4 uses the concept of “keep colors” and “drop colors” chosen by the user and then based on those user selections, the Mask Pro 4 algorithm will remove only those selected colors from an image. One of the strengths of Mask Pro 4 is that when a “drop color” is found in another pixel, Mask Pro 4’s powerful color decontamination technology will remove only that color value from the pixel, leaving that pixel (or pixels) semi-transparent. The benefit to the user is that Mask Pro 4 will virtually eliminate the edge halo effect often seen when masking a transparent object or edge.
LONG BEACH, Calif. – For years, front projector manufacturers have been touting engineering breakthroughs that continuously expand the boundaries of projection use, while the evolution of projection screens has been perceived by many as generally unchanged. An innovative product called the Accolade DUET Ultra Portable Projection Screen is designed to change that perception by addressing the ever-increasing demand for front projectors with a portable screen for use at both work and home.With two patents pending, the DUET screen features a unique design that enables it to expand horizontally (left and right rather than up and down) to either 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios. It can be used to project an image up to 80 inches in size (diagonal). The DUET screen can either hang on a wall using an included mounting bracket, or stand freely by placing it on an included retractable stand. The screen and stand can be set up together in less than 30 seconds and can be taken down and stored as a one-piece solution that is 42 inches in length. The DUET screen is also easy to transport.
