Ulead Systems has announced plans for increased collaboration with consumer electronics, mobile device and telecommunications companies in an effort to gain greater share of the mobile technology software market. The company hopes its MPEG-4 supportive software will be used in a wider range of mobile phones, digital cameras and camcorders that utilise MPEG-4 technology. Digital camera manufacturers Minolta and Olympus have for instance recently agreed to start including Ulead software with MPEG-4 support in upcoming products. The company is also preparing to launch its new media center title, DVD MovieFactory 3 Disc Creator. This software, claims Ulead, turns the PC into a full entertainment center through which users can view photos, video and listen to music. DVD MovieFactory 3 Disc Creator is being launched in Europe at this month's CeBIT event in Hanover, Germany. The company said the new release should reach Middle East customers "shortly". "This year will truly be a year of action for Ulead," said Way-Zen Chen, chairman and president of Ulead Systems. "We will focus our efforts on DVD and MPEG-4 solutions, which we expect to be a major area of growth area until 2006. At the same time, we are launching Ulead’s Media Center solution, a complete digital entertainment center for the PC, which will further integrate Ulead software into the digital home." The MPEG-4 video format offers compression and TV-like quality for mobile devices such as digital cameras, camcorders, and mobile phones including G3 models.
