Lako Pacific has inked a distribution deal with Taiwanese software vendor, CyberLink. Marketing manager, Eugene Wong, said it would concentrate on supplying the products to the retail market.
"CyberLink has new products coming out, a lot of which are Vista ready and look at the high-definition video standards like Blu-ray and HD DVD," he said. "It has always traditionally targeted consumers with video cameras or still digital cameras. They have also been strong with OEMs."
The portfolio includes its DVD authoring and burning software, DVD Suite; Power Director video editing software, Power Producer DVD authoring software and PowerDVD software DVD player. Wong said CyberLink would complement its existing line-up of video and imaging software, which included vendors such as Ulead, ACDSee and Pinnacle Systems.
"CyberLink software is currently available in Harvey Norman and we are approaching a lot of the retailers that we deal with on a regular basis," he said. "We can't confirm whether they will be carrying them or not just yet."
Lako has accounts with Dick Smith, Myer, OfficeWorks and City Software. It joins Manaccom in the vendor's distributor ranks. Manaccom primarily focuses on republishing software and would continue to distribute CyberLink's software licenses to the education and enterprise market, its CEO, James Mackay, said.
