Vado Central 3.0
With the included Vado Central 3.0 software, you'll have an easy way to view, share, and even edit your videos. The software's user- friendly layout provides you with a clean, organised view of all your videos, as well as quick access to relevant functions such as online sharing, editing and emailing.
Vado Central 3.0 includes basic video editing capabilities so you can quickly polish your videos before posting them. The software's trimming function lets you delete raw footage by choosing new starting and ending points for a clip, and then saving the improved version. And since the Vado HD takes videos in standard video formats, you can easily export them to programs such as iMovie and Movie Maker for more advanced editing options.
Vado Central 3.0 is loaded onto the Vado HD camcorder and runs directly from it, so that you can use it wherever you go without needing to load it onto a computer or install from a CD.

Vado Central 3.0 is compatible with both Macs (Mac OS X 10.4 and later) and PCs (Windows 7, Vista, or XP (SP2)).
You've taken your video, but the chances are that you might want to trim a bit from the start, end or both - with Vado Central editing your clip is almost as easy as capturing it was.
