Automatically Make Stylized muvees on Your Living Room TV Using a Remote Control

muvee releases autoProducer unPlugged at Computex Taipei 2005

Singapore and Taipei (June 1, 2005) - muvee Technologies, the pioneer and global leader in automatic video production, announces the release of muvee autoProducer unPlugged at Computex Taipei 2005. The application first made its debut as muvee autoProducer Media Center Edition last year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and has since been shipping with HP's Media Center PCs. Computex 2005 marks the launch of the updated, standalone unPlugged application.

Pete Kellock, muvee's founder and CEO, said, "Hunching over your computer table and working with a mouse is just fine sometimes. But what about when you're lounging in your favorite armchair? With muvee autoProducer unPlugged, you can sit back with your feet up and use a remote control to make muvees. unPlugged gives you the power of our standard muvee autoProducer product: the ability to transform your home video into professional -looking, finished productions in over 100 styles within minutes, even seconds. But now it's even more fun, something you can do with family and friends gathered together around the TV."

Designed for the Windows® XP Media Center platform, muvee autoProducer unPlugged is the first and only application to introduce instant personal video into the living room, by letting users quickly and easily make muvees on a TV screen using just the familiar buttons of a remote control. unPlugged retains the core functions of muvee's award -winning PC application, muvee autoProducer, but now presents them in an interactive, 10 -foot Media Center -styled interface. Using the directional buttons of the remote control, users select their videos, pictures, music and an editing style, before hitting "make muvee". In minutes, unPlugged intelligently analyzes the selected media, then automatically cuts video highlights to the music, with appropriately -styled effects and transitions synchronized to the beat, creating a finished production. muvees can be previewed in real time on the TV screen, or instantly remade in a different style.

autoProducer unPlugged currently supports WMV and MPEG -2 video output formats for quick playback and DVD burning respectively. unPlugged retails at US$69.95 and is now available for download from
