WEBWIRE – Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Together with YouCam 5 webcam software, the new app offers Windows 8 users a powerful and engaging solution for capturing videos and photos on both desktop and portable systems

Taipei, Taiwan — CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a provider of innovative media creation solutions, today launched YouCam Mobile – a fun, touch-optimized camera application for portable Windows® 8 devices. YouCam Mobile is designed to optimize the media creation experience on Windows 8 mobile devices and tablets, providing users with a robust yet fluid and intuitive interface for capturing photos and videos. It also features editing, effects and sharing tools so users can quickly personalize and liven up their media before uploading it to YouTube, Facebook or Flickr.

Building on the success of CyberLink’s top-selling YouCam software for webcam recording and enhancement, YouCam Mobile was developed for touch-enabled portable devices to provide users with a truly comprehensive and seamless camera application for all their Windows 8 systems.

The unique application is the first of its kind to truly enable Windows 8 systems to be used as smart cameras to capture personal photos and videos. Along with useful editing tools, including photo cropping, rotation and video trimming, YouCam Mobile also features a range of particle effects, distortions and animations that can be applied to media in real time. Additionally, enhancements to image quality can be made using CyberLink’s unique TrueTheater® technology to dramatically improve the appearance of photos and videos.

“YouCam has been so well received by users in large part due to its intuitive, fun approach to webcam recording, media personalization and sharing,” said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "YouCam Mobile brings that same fun to portable Windows 8 devices, transforming them into easy-to-use, yet powerful cameras. The unique combination of the two products presents a complete solution for capturing high-quality media on Windows 8 devices whether at home or on-the-go.”

YouCam Mobile also resolves the challenge of identifying and retrieving content across ever expanding personal photo and video libraries. The application’s tools and filters make it easy for users to navigate through their memories. For example, Calendar View uses the timecode stamped on digital media files to automatically sort content into a calendar according to the date that the media was created, while a face tagging feature automatically groups photos together based on who appears in them.

YouCam Mobile is available now on the Windows Store.
