Ulead Systems 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 9.
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.
