<p>Hollywood quality replaces tired old home movies, preserving precious memories once captured on video</p>
<p>###</p>
<p>Sydney (February 10, 2004) -- 321 Studios, already the leader in DVD backup and recovery software, has established itself as an innovator in home entertainment software with the Australian release of award-winning DVDXMAKER, available now through retailers nationwide.</p>
<p>DVDXMAKER turns its users into big-time movie producers, allowing them to turn their home movie footage -- in any format -- into Hollywood-style movies that can also be recorded to DVDs that will play on any DVD player. Customers can also use DVDXMAKER to add professional-looking interactive elements to their DVDs, including menus, chapters, credits, labels and more.</p>
<p>“DVDXMAKER is unique because it gives the customer the ability to personalise their creation right from the start of the DVD, using a trick we picked up from big-time Hollywood editors,” said Rob Semaan, the Sydney-born and raised CEO of 321 Studios, which is headquartered in St Louis, US. “You incorporate moving video from your own collection into the menu screen, giving it a professional look and personal feel.”</p>
<p>Through built-in wizards, DVDXMAKER also makes it easy to create stunning credits, menus and chapters. Users can even make disc labels, jackets and jewel cases, too.</p>
<p>“Move over Hollywood,” said Semaan. “DVDXMAKER allows our customers to take existing movie footage on video and create a DVD that leaps off the screen. Think of it as creating the ‘Special Edition’ or ‘Director’s Cut’ of your favourite family footage.”</p>
<p>After creating a DVD with DVDXMAKER, users will be overwhelmed with the amazingly crisp, stunningly clear DVD movies that can now replace their tired old pile of home videos. By using DVDXMAKER, users are able to keep their great video memories, but lose the poor video quality that has become synonymous with home videos since the dawn of the digital age.</p>
