V-Studio is now shipping.
We are pleased to announce that our exciting new V-Studio software has been shipping since June. Initially it is only being rolled out in countries where our distributors and support groups have been fully trained in its use.
As it is language specific we are running training sessions for each region and expect to have everyone up to speed by mid September. We thank you for your patience.
What is V-Studio?
