Video Without Boundaries Teams with RapidSolution in Providing a Complete Music and Video Conversion Platform
New Relationship Sets Consumers Free From Copy-Protection Frustration Limitation of Use
Ft. Lauderdale - (July 19, 2006) — Video Without Boundaries, Inc. (OTCBB: VDWB ), a leading provider of interactive, media-convergent home entertainment devices, and RapidSolution Software AG, today announced a working partnership to bundle RapidSolution’s popular Windows software Tunebite with all MediaREADY devices.
MediaREADY 4000, 5000, Flyboy, CoPilot and Glider customers will receive a trial version of the Tunebite 3.0 software which protects consumers from the frustrations of copy-protection formats and creates unprotected private copies of music and audio book files by recording them as they are being played. The latest version of Tunebite 3.0 also offers support for copy-protected video clip formats.
“We are very excited about joining RapidSolution in promoting consumer friendly services and broadening the usefulness of consumer purchased media,” said Video Without Boundaries, Inc. President and CEO Jeffrey Harrell. “By bundling the Tunebite 3.0 software with our MediaREADY media center and portables devices, we are giving consumers a tremendous flexibility to manage their collections and have the choice of where and how they want to enjoy them.”
“The MediaREADY line of media centers and portable devices is exactly the kind of device we imagined enabling when we developed Tunebite 3.0,” said Norman F. Foerderer, Director Sales & Marketing at RapidSolution Software. “We are impressed with features of the product line and are excited to be able to partner with VWB and make the consumer experience even more simple and friendly.”
The combination of the RapidSolutions Tunebite 3.0 software and the MediaREADY products means increased flexibility and ease of management for the consumer’s music and video library. Users will now have the ability to easily convert music and video clips for playback and management on MediaREADY devices. Most of our customers are getting their digital music and video from services like iTunes, Napster, and Yahoo. These popular services often require strict implementation of proprietary Digital Rights Management which can severely limit playback on devices which don’t support these proprietary formats.
Since 2004, RapidSolution has helped responsible consumers exercise their legal right to be able to play music they have purchased online on all of their playback devices, free from the limitations of copy protection. To this end, previous releases of Tunebite allowed users to play copy-protected music and audio book files on the PC in software players supporting copy-protection formats, and to simultaneously record them for the purpose of creating unprotected copies for private use. Tunebite 3 Platinum now also supports the ability to record copy-protected video clips while they are being played.
