Ulead announces DVD PictureShow for Mac
April 22nd, 2003

Ulead Systems, Inc., a leading developer of image and video editing, 3D animation, and DVD authoring software, today introduced DVD PictureShow for Mac, digital image slideshow creation software for the Macintosh platform. DVD PictureShow fills a niche in the Mac consumer software market for a digital photo slideshow product solely designed to easily and quickly create slideshows on both CD and DVD media. DVD PictureShow for Mac follows the success of Ulead’s existing PC-based DVD PictureShow, which has received notable reviews in CNET, PC Magazine, and the Wall Street Journal. With the high adoption rate of digital cameras, the increasing growth rate of DVD burners, yet the ubiquitous use of CD burners, Ulead is uniquely positioned to offer consumers and OEM partners a cross platform solution for digital image slideshow creation with support for both CD and DVD media.bar

DVD PictureShow for Mac lets consumers easily assemble digital images, create sophisticated DVD navigation and polished menus using templates such as holiday, vacation, and romantic. Adding text, background music and importing images for menu backgrounds give slideshows a personal touch. The software burns to either CD or DVD discs for playback on a TV using a standard DVD player or on a computer using a CD or DVD drive.

“Due to the overwhelming success of DVD PictureShow for the PC platform, DVD PictureShow for Mac was a natural step for Ulead,” says Colwin Chan, image editing product manager at Ulead Systems, Inc. “While Apple’s iDVD and iPhoto give Mac users a variety of options for working with their digital media, DVD PictureShow for Mac offers a

complementary, streamlined approach to easily and quickly transform digital photos into entertaining digital slideshows. The software is also unique because it works with both CD and DVD burners, giving the majority of consumers who do not have a DVD burner the option of burning their final slideshow to inexpensive CD media that they can still watch on TV using a standard DVD player.”

DVD PictureShow for Mac also complements Ulead’s existing Mac-based digital image media management software, Photo Explorer for Mac (available at www.ulead.com). The two products combined give Mac users a complete photo management and slideshow creation package that helps them download, edit, manage, archive, and share their images on CD and DVD media.

Within each slideshow, it’s easy to assemble, arrange, rotate and set the interval time between photos.

A variety of theme-based menu templates such as holiday, vacation, romantic, and business help consumers quickly create slick looking CDs or DVDs with professional menu navigation. Once the slideshow is created, consumers can preview a project with the software’s DVD remote control emulation. When it’s time to burn the slideshow, the software will automatically detect the recording device on the computer (CD-R, CD-RW or DVD-R) and burn as requested. DVD PictureShow for Mac is for Mac OS X 10.2 and above only.
