Roxio Introduces PhotoSuite 7 Platinum
Simply Picture Perfect: Comprehensive, Powerful Photo Editing Software
SANTA CLARA, Calif April 6, 2004 Roxio, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROXI), The Digital Media Company, provider of the best selling digital media software in the world, began shipping its new PhotoSuite 7 Platinum software today. Building on the award-winning capabilities of its predecessor, the latest release of Roxio's photo software extends its appeal with powerful multimedia slide show capabilities, professional level editing tools, and advanced Video CD authoring, components which are leveraged from Roxio Easy Media Creator 7, Roxio's market-leading digital media suite. Some photo applications focus strictly on editing, while others concentrate on organizing. PhotoSuite 7 Platinum offers tremendous value by including all the tools needed to capture, edit, create, organize, share, and preserve digital photos on CD or DVD in one package, while maintaining the user-friendly interface for which PhotoSuite has been praised.
Like all applications in our digital media software line, PhotoSuite 7 Platinum offers a clean user interface, intuitive workflow and rich, seamlessly integrated components that deliver a complete solution at a competitive price, said Vito Salvaggio , VP Product Management, Roxio. It is no longer necessary for users to learn multiple applications and workflows to experience all that digital photography has to offer.
Components new to PhotoSuite 7 Platinum include a smart capture utility for importing photos or video files from digital cameras, scanners, or storage devices, a rich label creation tool, and a comprehensive media management system that provides a single, convenient location for viewing, organizing, and burning photos, video clips and audio files to CD or DVD. Another key addition is StoryBoard for creating dynamic slide shows with personal photos or video clips, that include background music, text, transitions, special effects, narration, and Motion Pictures, which brings still images to life with dramatic zoom and pan effects. One of the most significant new components included in PhotoSuite 7 Platinum is DVD Builder (VCD Ed ition) powered by the Roxio Easy Media Creator burn engine, which enables consumers to create Video CDs of personal content complete with animated buttons and motion menus.
