Torrance, CA - (May 9, 2000) - Ulead Systems, Inc., a leading developer of image editing, video editing and Web graphics software, announced today a new media sharing Web site for consumer digital media users. iMira.com is Ulead's largest effort to date to establish the company as a primary force in the Internet media space -- a mission set by Ulead's executive team in December 1999.
"Ulead has always been a pioneer in the Web marketplace," said Danielle Liao, president of Ulead Systems, Inc. "We were first to create integrated Web tools, then first to develop technologies and online retailer relationships that offer easy and convenient ways to buy those tools online. Now, iMira.com has a unique opportunity to provide Ulead's 3.5 million registered users with a solution that brings together the best of our desktop applications and Web services."
iMira.com Launched today in the U.S., iMira.com provides one easy-to-use and friendly destination to store, share and showcase personal media files. Today, the site focuses on supporting the needs of digital photography users; however, applications and services for video and audio enthusiasts will be available shortly. Users can upload existing files and store 20 MB in a Gallery for future projects. Digital photography users can now create online photo albums accessible by friends and family and send electronic greeting cards for all types of holidays and events. Through a partnership with Photo Access, users will be able to create memorable gifts from the photos they store online. Finally, the site will offer a large selection of free, downloadable photos and animations. iMira.com can be viewed in several languages including English, Chinese and Japanese.
