PRESS RELEASE: PictureToTV.com Releases MemoriesOnTV 2.0
PictureToTV.com has released MemoriesOnTV v. 2.0, a Windows application that turns your photographs and videos into a stunning slide show that you can display on your TV or computer. Unlike ordinary slide shows that display static images, MemoriesOnTV can weave both snapshots and movies into professional-quality multimedia CD and DVD slide shows that will dazzle your family, friends and business colleagues.
The program gives you a nearly unlimited number of creative ways to combine your multimedia files into an effective visual presentation. All major formats are supported, including photo (jpg, bmp, png, tif, pcx, pct, pict, tgs, wmf, and eps), video (mpg, avi, mov, and mp4), and audio (mp3, wav, and ogg).
Using a WYSIWYG interface, it's easy to create a slide show from your photographs and movies, and create a soundtrack for the entire presentation. You can make your pictures ripple into one another like raindrops from the sky, or change pictures as clouds float through them. You can use the pan and zoom effect made popular in Ken Burns' acclaimed documentaries. Most of the transitions are customizable, giving you a virtually infinite number of effects.
Set the right mood for your story by adding multiple background music files to your show. You can fade the music in and out, or synchronize it to end with the show. For videos with existing soundtracks, you can control the volume of the background and foreground music independently.
With its built-in CD and DVD authoring capabilities, MemoriesOnTV lets you create playable discs without having to buy additional software. In addition to creating DVDs, the software also supports VCD and SVCD formats. With true cross-border support, MemoriesOnTV can create slide shows in PAL and NTSC formats.
With MemoriesOnTV, it's easy to preview your CD or DVD before you burn it onto disc. In addition to your slide shows, you can also archive your original multimedia files onto the same disc.
New features in v. 2.0 include the ability to import video from most cameras, to mix video with pictures within a track, and to mix background music into your videos. The latest version also adds visually elegant transition effects, enhanced fading and looping of background music, and enhanced options for creating thumbnails and sub-albums.
Whether you'd like to add text captions to your vacation or wedding photos and distribute them to family and friends, or you want to provide business colleagues with a professionally-produced sales presentation, MemoriesOnTV has the tools that you need.
MemoriesOnTV v. 2.0 costs $39.95(US) for the personal edition, and runs under Windows 98/Me/2000/XP. An MPEG2 plugin is available for DVD and SVCD support. The $99.95 business edition allows commercial distribution of your discs, includes the MPEG2 plugin, and lets you add branding video to the discs that you create.
