Reprinted from a Ulead press release:
Ulead Systems, Inc., a leading developer of video editing, image editing and DVD authoring software, today announced a North American agreement to include special editions of VideoStudio 7, DVD MovieFactory 2, DVD PictureShow 2, as well as Ulead DVD player software and burning technology with Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.’s new multi-format DVR-A06 DVD/CD writer. The Pioneer drive, coupled with Ulead digital media software, gives consumers a fully-integrated, multi-format solution for editing video content, transforming video into Hollywood-like DVDs, and creating digital image slideshows. Consumers can burn final digital projects to CDs or DVDs in both the DVD-R/RW and +R/RW formats to watch on TV or a computer.
This North American deal is one among a series of similar regional agreements to bundle Ulead software with the Pioneer DVR-A06. The DVR-A06 will be available in North America in June at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $329.
In line with Pioneer’s support for multiple media formats, the Ulead suite is unique in its ability to handle a variety of formats including the -VR (video recording) format. Using Ulead software, consumers who own a DVD camcorder or DVD set top recorder now have a way to edit home videos, create DVDs and watch finished movies on a variety of entertainment devices.
“After evaluating various digital media software, we opted for the Ulead software suite because it is a complete collection of quality applications under one easy-to-navigate interface,” said Andy Parsons, senior vice president of industrial video & mass storage sales and marketing at Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “Not only have we eliminated customer confusion over which drive and media to buy with the introduction of the A06, but users can also rest assured that they are equipped with the latest high-quality software to easily and quickly capture, edit, burn, and share their digital memories.”
“With its new multi-format drive, Pioneer significantly reduces consumer confusion about which DVD format to choose,” says Lewis Liaw, president of Ulead Systems, North America. “The Ulead software suite further eliminates their frustration towards creating digital media by making it fun, fast, and easy. By offering consumers a host of intuitive and technological rich software within one user-friendly interface, we create one of the best user experiences in the consumer DVD creation market.”
