Nero at CeBIT
CDRinfo visited Nero's booth at the CeBIT show and met with Sales and Marketing Director, Patrick Peeters, and with Marketing Manager Sandra Jakob.
They outlined their company's data and showcased the upcoming products that Nero was announcing at this year's CeBIT.Nero, one of the leaders in digital media techology currently counts 310 employees and has three headquarters in Germany, California and Japan.
Mr. Peeters and Ms. Jakob demonstrated to CDRinfo Nero's new softwares and their features: Nero PhotoShow Deluxe 4, Nero Sipps Mobile, Nero Digital and Nero 7 Premium.
Nero PhotoShow Deluxe 4, a new photo and video software, is a complete system for organizing, managing and editing photos and videos. The software facilitates the search and classification of pictures by delivering, for instance, a tagging capability for simplified searches by people, places, comments and keywords.
It also allows users to enhance their PhotoShows by adding musical accompaniment, animated clip art, captions and frames from a library of hundreds of songs, pictures and templates included in the package. They can furthermore burn th content on a DVD or on their own free personal Web site.
Nero PhotoShow Deluxe 4 also provides tools to remove red-eye, as well as recompose and crop images. Users can also fine-tune color and saturation to compensate for the quality of aging photos or inaccurate colors in the originals. It can zoom and rotate video clips, and add special effects to both still images and video.
The new Nero PhotoShow Deluxe 4 solution will be available online and at retail stores in April and will sell for 30 Euros.
Mr. Peeters and Ms.Jakob then introduced Nero Sipps Mobile that targets mobile terminals beyond Nero Sipps, and Nero Sipps VoIP Server packages that were ultimately destined for desktops. They demonstrated the possibility of GSM/WLAN roaming using Nero Sipps Mobile.
The first version of the mobile software telephone offers all the usual telephony functions, an address book with direct dialing, lists of dialed numbers and missed calls as well as personalized ring tones. A server-based address book, a simple chat option, and a facility for creating and managing buddy lists will be added shortly. Nero Sipps Mobile supports Windows 2003 Mobile and Windows 2005 Mobile.
Calls with other VoIP subscribers will be free, while calls to the worldwide fixed or mobile network will be possible at affordable rates – all without the need for the obligatory subscription or cell phone contract. Porting to the Symbian operating system is also planned. Nero Sipps Mobile will be available in April.
