A magazine called Digital Video Made Easy is being launched from Paragon Publishing on July 4. The A4, 100-page title is aimed at digital video beginners. Paragon says it is the UK's first magazine for readers wanting to know how to produce and edit digital home movies. It contains in-depth, step-by-step tutorials on which digital camcorders to buy, shooting and editing techniques and how to create professional looking video-CDs or DVDs. Issue one, which has a cover price of £3.99, comes with a free CD featuring more than 40 programs. Paragon says that the target reader of the new bi-monthly is a 25 to 45-year-old, predominantly ABC1 male who owns a digital camera or is about to buy a digital camcorder. The print run is 40,000. Karl Foster, editor of Digital Video Made Easy, said: "The digital video market in the UK looks ready to boom, just as the digital stills camera market has done over the past two years. "With camcorder prices as low as £600, and high-powered PCs capable of handling the demands of editing digital video now within the budget of the home user, DV is becoming affordable to many more people. "Camcorder manufacturers report growing sales in the digital sector, while software publishers are launching more and more video editing packages aimed at entry-level users. "Hence the launch of Digital Video Made Easy. Based on the highly successful Made Easy brand, the magazine explains in easy steps how home movie makers can truly get to grips with the technology available." Digital Video carries Paragon's established made easy' branding and, to promote the title a 20-page Digital Video Made Easy supplement is being given away free with 40,000 copies of sister magazine Digital Photography Made Easy. An advertising campaign will also run in related magazines. Paragon says the title should be positioned alongside What Camcorder and Camcorder User. {{CTN }}
