PRESS RELEASE: SceneMachines Launches LivingPicturePC
Cambridge, UK -- SceneMachines, a division of Cambridge-based Gameware Development, today announced the release of their LivingPicture packages for PC. LivingPicture enables users to take any digital image human, animal or even an inanimate object and transform it into an animated, 3D talking picture.
Making a LivingPicture is quick and easy and LPP images and sound can be saved for future use. Send them to your friends as personalised messages or use a LivingPicture as your personal website host.
LivingPictureMaker creates hilarious talking messages that can be sent as greetings, messages or email jokes. Create singing avatars with the LivingPictureVisualisation for Windows Media Player and WinAmp or export self-playing LivingPictures to send to friends and family. LivingPictureMaker includes both the freely distributable Player and Visualisation installer. Bring any photo to life with the addition of music, audio clips or spoken messages.
LivingPictureWeb, using only one 2D photo or image, allows the deployment of video-quality 3D website hosts. Bandwidth cost is far less than video and regular content updating is easy. Cost-effective and flexibile, LivingPictureWeb enables an avatar host to present content in several different languages which can be changed immediately when updates are required.
CEO Jeremy Cooke explains, "We were working on our LivingPicture application and messaging system for the camera phone market, when it struck us that the fun and utility of the tool would be of value to PC users too, enabling consumers to create and control their online presence as a serious newsreader, a cartoon mascot or a favourite pet!"
With a starting price of only €14.99 for personal use and a flexible pricing model for commercial users, LivingPicturePC allows anyone to bring a whole new visual dynamic to their emails, web-sites, presentations or family photo albums. The LivingPicturePC products are available now at www.livingpicture.net while the LivingPicturePlayer and LivingPictureVisualisation are both available for free download.
