YesVideo Introduces YesDVD Digital Scrapbook Multimedia Software for Easy Editing, Sharing of Video and Photos


SANTA CLARA, CA, 02/17/2005 -- YesVideo™, Inc. (, the leader in digital media authoring, today announced its new YesDVD Digital Scrapbook™ multimedia software. Designed to enable consumers to easily edit and share their video and photo memories without the need to install complicated and expensive editing software, YesDVD with Digital Scrapbook multimedia software plays like a Hollywood movie DVD when played in a DVD player, and also performs as an easy-to-use video and photo editing application when run on a PC. The YesDVD Digital Scrapbook will be demonstrated at YesVideo’s booth #2071/2073 at PMA 2005 (Feb. 20-23, Orlando, FL).

Digital Scrapbook includes video editing software, photo editing software and a multimedia storyboard as a tightly integrated, easy-to-use application. As companion software that resides on a finished YesDVD disc along with the video and photo content, YesDVD Digital Scrapbook software is simple to use, with no software to install on the PC. The consumer can simply insert the YesDVD into the DVD drive of their PC, and Digital Scrapbook is ready to use.

With their video clips and photos already integrated into the Digital Scrapbook toolset, consumers can immediately edit, create and share their memories and prints and slideshows. Editing functions include cropping, rotating, and red-eye reduction, as well as easy selection of video clips. The final creation made with Digital Scrapbook can easily be converted to .WMV format for emailing to friends and family, or for burning a new DVD.

“The YesDVD Digital Scrapbook meets the growing demand by consumers who want to easily edit their video, capture still images from their video, and incorporate still pictures, personal music, and special effects into their video,” said Sai-Wai Fu, president and CEO of YesVideo. “We believe that our customers want to remember events by creating customized, multimedia scrapbooks from their digital pictures and video.”

Digital Scrapbook is significantly easier to use that other video and photo editing software in that:
