October 4, 2017: muvee & Athentech bring patented color science technology to mobile phone cameras


Smartphones can now get the precision and beauty used by professional photographers and color labs in their cameras


4 October 2017 Singapore and Calgary: muvee Technologies, the leading mobile video company, today announced an exclusive partnership with Athentech Imaging, the world leader in Intelligent Image Correction, to deliver its patented color science image correction algorithms to mobile phone cameras so that perfect photos are captured every time, under any condition.


Mobile phone makers can now implement the same Perfectly Clear® image correction technologies used and loved by professional photographers into their default camera app to achieve professional results in mere fractions of a second on any mobile device, ensuring real-time capture experience even on phones using budget imaging components.


The Perfectly Clear suite of image correction plugins for Lightroom and Photoshop has been a favourite amongst leading professional photographers. Its software development kit (SDK) has been also licensed and integrated into the workflow of the world’s leading printers. Every single day, 30,000,000 (30 million) photos are corrected automatically by Perfectly Clear. This is testament to its robustness and promise to never make a photo worse, always better.


As a pioneer in mobile video software, muvee Technologies has over 13 years of multimedia development expertise in video for a myriad of mobile platforms, from the early Symbian and embedded RTOS (Real Time OS) to developing for GPU (Graphic Processing Units) and DSPs (Digital Signal Processors) on both Qualcomm and Mediatek platforms. Over the years, muvee has implemented multiple video features and apps into the camera and gallery experience of over 350 million phones made by brands like LG, Samsung, Sony, Motorola, OPPO and Alcatel.


As part of this strategic partnership, muvee will:
1) implement the Perfectly Clear algorithms for today’s modern mobile processing units;
2) exclusively license, support, and integrate the mobile SDK to handset makers globally;
3) achieve maximum portability and execution speed using platforms like Halide, C, OpenCL and OpenGL;
4) further the state of the art together with Athentech to eventually achieve Perfectly Clear for video, to process live video in realtime.


“We believe in bringing the best technology to our customers, and as we expand our business and offerings, image correction science is a natural fit. Athentech is the undisputed leader with proven and validated technology used by both professional photographers, and color labs. With our familiarity with today’s mobile computing platforms and handset manufacturers, it’s a very meaningful and synergistic collaboration.” says Terence Swee, Founder and CEO of muvee.


“The job of the camera is to freeze the moment. But the human eye is what captures the memory. Our science is so precise, it can replicate and correct images to be the exact reflection of what you saw in the moment. We wanted to work with a proven partner to quickly bring our patented image science to the next billion cameras. However, we also don’t want to lose focus on our community of professional users and color labs that we want to support. Working with muvee on the mobile handset maker market is a win-win for everyone: handset makers get the trusted and familiar engineering support from muvee and get to implement our patented color science algorithms with a time to market speed which either of us would not have been able to pull off going it alone.” says Brad Malcolm, President of Athentech.

October 1, 2016: muvee launches first Mac 360 Video Stitcher for Samsung Gear360 Camera


Users of the popular 360 camera is now able to stitch, trim, view and share their content from their Mac


1st October 2016 Singapore and Korea: muvee Technologies, the pioneer and leader in automatic video editing technology, today announced its first product in the 360° video space. The muvee 360 Video Stitcher for Mac application will be available for download from www.muvee.com/360 from today.


muvee 360 Video Stitcher for Mac will allow users of the popular Samsung Gear360 Camera to import their photos and videos into their Mac, view, trim their videos, and upload to Facebook and YouTube. It will automatically insert the required meta-data into the files so that Facebook and YouTube are able to play them back as 360 videos. Trimming of the videos are also done in the Compressed Domain using muvee’s proprietary lossless CODEN Video Trimmer engine. This means the results are instant and does not affect the quality of the video.


Until now, stitching, playing and sharing of videos from the Gear360 were only possible using the Samsung Gear360 Android app which are restricted to only users of the Samsung Galaxy S7, Note 5 and later models. A Windows application is made available on the website but requires users to register with its third party developer before using it. Videos that are captured using the Samsung Gear 360 video are also not already stitched to form a 360 surround globular video; it imports as two flat circular views within a 2:1 video frame. The computationally intensive process of de-warping the spheres and stitching the edges together is performed in the Galaxy phone via its proprietary Gear360 App that is locked to only work on approved Samsung phones.


“The Gear360 camera is affordable, very portable and shoots great quality videos. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities in imaging. However, we hear many users want to use them with their iPhones and Macs. Shelling out another $500 for a Galaxy phone just to use it with the Gear360 was simply a non-starter.” says Terence Swee, Founder and CEO of muvee.

    December 30, 2015: muvee Announces Series Conclusion of Award-Winning PC Software muvee Reveal with Launch of muvee Reveal Finale


    muvee, the award-winning pioneer and leader in automatic movie making software and applications, today announced they will release the ultimate version of their award winning PC software, muvee Reveal, aptly named muvee Reveal Finale. muvee Reveal 7 was first released in 2007 as the successor to muvee autoProducer, the world’s first automatic video editing software which debut in 2002. In its 13-year run, the muvee franchise has brought fast and easy video creation to legions of loyal fans from over 136 countries in over 12 languages. In this 12th major version, muvee Reveal introduces the Chapters feature and worked closely with Microsoft to optimize support for the latest Windows 10 and also improved video quality for sharing on Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube.


    The new “Chapters” feature allows users to segment their movies into different stories and ensure each story starts at a specific beat or place in the music track. Now wedding couples who wants the entry shot to start at the chorus of the song to snowboarders who wants their jumps to land on the beat can do so with a single click. As with all muvee products, the rest of the videos and photos, effects and transitions will sync to the beat of the music automatically.


    “Our mission has always been to empower users to tell their stories by making awesome movies quickly and easily. Chapters is a key part of that and we are very excited to see the stories our users can tell with it. In the past 8 years of the muvee Reveal series, we have continuously added powerful controls like magicMoments, magicSpot, Cinematic Trailers and also more Styles and personalization within those Styles. muvee Reveal Finale is now finally complete. We believe it now has all the features for our users to quickly get from video capture to video sharing. Many products start off elegant, but as more features are cramped into them they end up becoming a camel with lipstick and fake eyelashes. muvee Reveal Finale is our best automatic video editor for the PC on this code base. We continue to have development plans for the next few revisions with updates and improvements” says Terence Swee, Founder and CEO of muvee.


    muvee Finale utilizes the same patented Artistic Intelligence engine and 3-step video editing process the company is famous for. muvee has developed technology that automatically applies professional video editing techniques to user’s photos and video that automatically detects motion, faces, where to make cuts and apply transitions. The result is a professional looking home movie that captures the emotion of the photos and video. muvee currently holds over 25 video editing related patents.



    About muvee

    Since 2001, muvee has been developing software and services featuring patented technology that lets people create and share professional-quality instant home movies out of unedited video, photos and music. muvee develops consumer products for a range of platforms and devices.

    September 7, 2015: muvee releases ReAction – an iOS App to create dramatic slo-mo sequences


    Now users can create Hollywood-style time-warping video effects on their iPhones


    7 September 2015 Singapore: muvee Technologies, the pioneer and leader in automatic video editing technology, today announced the release of muvee ReAction, an iOS app to easily create dramatic slomo-fastmo sequences of action shots for sharing to Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.


    Using its proprietary Time-warp SDK, iPhone users can now create highly complex slo-mo video in various speed profiles, usually seen in Hollywood-type action sequences. Speed profiles are variations in video-playback speed which gives the viewer an impression of time warping from extreme slow motions, to an accelerated fast motion, all done smoothly in full HD quality. This has the effect of highlighting action sequences by slowing down different phases of the action by slightly differing amounts, hence creating anticipation, and adding a cinematic and dramatic touch to the action being tricked out.


    Slo-motion videos are very popular with consumers, especially when tiny cameras like the GoPro is able to up to 240FPS, and the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy Phone is able to capture high frame rate videos in the “slo-mo” mode. In the old days, this effect is typically created by “over-cranking” the film camera, so that it is recording more frames within a fixed time, and then playing back the film at the “usual” speed. This is no different. With today’s high powered CMOS sensors, digital cameras in phones and GoPros are able to capture 60 to 480 frames per second (FPS), with the Sony RX100 even hitting rates of 960FPS! Digital videos typically playback at 30 frames each second, so a video captured in 60FPS is considered 2X slower than “real” time.


    “We wanted to create an app that helps users make amazing slomo sequences that we are all so used to watching on TV. We realized it was difficult, and required expensive video editing software. With ReAction, we have been able to build in highly complex slomo time-warping technology into fixed profiles that are highly tuned and designed by professionals and put it in an iPhone app. We can’t wait to see the amazing instagrammable stunts that our users are going to create with this!” says Terence Swee, Founder and CEO of muvee.


    Availability, Pricing and Future Upgrades
    muvee Reaction is available immediately and FREE to download from the Apple AppStore. Free versions comes with a watermark. Users are able to purchase (in-app) multiple available Speed Profiles individually, or in a bundle-pack for $1.99 per Profile. Watch the Tutorial here.


    Features

  • Multiple aspect ratio: Save in 16:9 (Landscape), 9:16 (Portrait), of 1:1 (Square) videos
  • Add multiple slomo and fastmo segments within one video
  • User different speed profiles with each segment.

  • Speed Profiles:

  • The Flat: simple step function like those available in other slomo editing app
  • The Smooth: just like the Flat, but smoother, with a professional touch
  • The Backhand: Slow down immediately, then accelerates as it regains speed
  • The Freeze: Slows down instantly, and freezes, then slowly regains speed
  • The Slam Dunk: Slows down gradually, and goes back to normal speed instantly
  • The Bungee: Decelerates as it slows down, and then instantly speeds back up to normal, just like a bungee cord
  • Watch all the 6 Speed Profiles here.

    November 11, 2014: TWINE Launches As The First iOS App From Famed Software Maker muvee


    Split-Screen Social Video App Takes Two Moments in Time and Stitches Them Together


    SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., November 11, 2014 — Twine is the first iOS app from muvee, the award-winning pioneer and leader in automatic movie making software and applications.

    The free app allows users to capture opposite or parallel moments in time, then TWINE combines them to make one single splitscreen scene that can be up to 7 seconds long.

    Users can save their TWINEs directly to their camera roll and choose not to share publicly on TWINE, unlike other similar apps. They can also share directly to Facebook.

    “We have always encouraged our team to go beyond their daily routine if there are ideas or applications they were interested in creating. Several of them got together and began working on a split-screen video app,” said Terence Swee, CEO, muvee.

    “A few months and many beers later, we realized they had stumbled upon something very addictive. So today, we are very excited to release TWINE and we can’t wait to see what amazing split-screen videos will be imagined.”

    Videos can be taken in both portrait and landscape. Similar to Instagram, the social app allows users to find and follow other TWINE users as well as explore other trending split-screen videos, or TWINEs.


    To download the app, visit www.twinevideos.com.


    For more updates and information, visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/twinevideos.



    About TWINE

    Social sharing iOS app TWINE allows users to make and share 7-second split-screen videos. Opposite or parallel moments in time are captured, and TWINE automatically stitches them together.


    TWINE was created by muvee, the award-winning inventor of video editing software that automatically produces emotionally engaging and awesome looking home movies.

    February 21, 2014: muvee Launches First Full Video Editing Application for Android that Supports GoPro Videos


    muvee Action Studio enables videos to be created on the move


    muvee Device Solutions Group [DSG], the pioneer and leader in video editing applications for mobile devices, today announced the launch of muvee Action Studio an app that edits GoPro videos directly on Android phones and devices.

    This revolutionary app is the first to target GoPro users that sideloads videos to their Android devices. There are three different editing modes: Fast, Automatic and Pro.


    Fast Mode: This mode exclusively uses muvee’s proprietary Compressed Domain Engine (CODEN) which edits videos without decoding them. Users can instantly trim clips, join them together, and even add speed ramp effects to specific moments and save and share instantly. With this technique, HD and even 4K videos can be produced instantly with zero quality loss even on mid-range smartphones as computational power is made irrelevant. As long as the device can playback the video, it will be able to edit it.


    Automatic Mode: Using muvee’s patented Artistic Intelligence engine, users can select a Style to quickly generate a professional-looking video with complex OpenGL effects and 3D transitions instantly. Users can select any music track and muvee will cut the videos to the beat of the music instantly using proprietary music analysis techniques.


    Pro Mode: Features a full manual editing timeline complete with professionally designed transitions, filters and overlays that were specifically created for action-oriented footage. Users can trim/split/join their video clips and also mix in photos. They can also refocus and reframe shots, create time remaps of particular clips to create dramatic slow motion sequences. Filters and graphic overlays like vignettes, lens flares and grainy film scratches can then be added. Additionally, they can enhance their story by adding Captions, Intertitles and Credits. In this mode, users will have all the tools they will need to produce a professional-looking video with simple finger taps, slides and swipes on a very responsive user interface. For example, to split a long clip, users simply swipe across the screen downwards. Pinch and un-pinch to expand the timeline; grab and slide to trim clips. Slide left and right to pull out the Filters and Overlaps tabs. Slide up and down to tweak audio balance between music and video.

    ”I was snowboarding in Lake Tahoe with my GoPro and wanted to quickly put some highlight clips together to music and post on YouTube. I did not want to bring a PC along with all the other equipment I was already lugging. I then realized that there must be a ton of GoPro users who are out mountain biking,, diving, surfing or kayaking…in at places where you don’t want to bring a PC. But we always have our phones with us. I thought: “I should be able to edit my GoPro videos on my phone immediately!” Now we can.” Says Terence Swee, Founder and CEO of muvee, and an avid triathlete, mountain climber and aerial-drone pilot.

    muvee Action Studio will be available on Google Play in mid-March for $19.99

    February 21, 2014: muvee Launches Suite of Video Editing Applications on Google Play Store


    Apps Trim, Zoom, Crop Videos and Dramatize Action Sequences in Slow Motion


    muvee Device Solutions Group [DSG], the global leader in video editing applications for mobile devices, today announced the availability of three muvee apps in the Google Play Store. This is the first time the company has released apps in this marketplace.


    muvee reTrim is designed for users to very easily trim their videos to the desired scene, and mix in a background music track from their collection. The app uses muvee’s proprietary compressed domain engine (CODEN) which enables video cutting without having to transcode the video. Hence video cutting is instantaneous, and there is zero quality loss. Users can then choose a music track and tweak the balance between the music and the video’s audio track.


    muvee reFrame allows users to zoom, crop and reframe HD videos instantly. These applications are designed specifically to enhance the advanced video capture experience on ultra wide angle action cameras like GoPro and Smartphones which capture in Full HD and even up to 4K Ultra HD resolution. Without an optical zoom, users are currently not able to take tight shots of their subjects. With muvee reFrame, users are able to frame their desired shot in a box and even slowly drag the box across the screen as the video plays, effectively “zooming” into the object, and cropping out the extra background. This empowers users to create cinematic film-quality shots even after shooting.


    muvee reAction applies a professionally designed slow motion profile on a one-second segment of video instantly. Users select the moment and a speed ramp profile and muvee reAction will re-time that segment using a variable slow motion engine. This creates a dramatic sequence instantly. This is done with muvee’s CODEN engine in the compressed domain using a proprietary technique, so there are no video artifacts and zero quality loss.

    “These three simple yet powerful video tools are essential for any smartphone that shoots videos to maximize the video creation experience, and are beyond easy to use. Use reTrim get rid of all the excess video you don’t need with a click, then add a driving music track, maybe mix in a bit of the audio to give some ambience. Shot videos of little Ethan scoring his first goal at soccer practice from the sidelines? Use reFrame to get a tight shot of that action and send it to daddy. And our current crowd pleaser, reAction, slows down those awesome moments like the perfect half pipe trick or the last minute 3-pointer,” said Terence Swee, CEO, muvee. “We know there are a lot of dull moments in even a 1 minute video. This combo of video apps are must-haves for anyone who shoots any videos they want to share.”

    muvee has been creating video editing apps for devices including Smartphones and cameras since 2004. This is the first time they have released them for public consumption. These apps will be available for $2.99 each.

    February 21, 2014: muvee Brings Multimedia Editing Tools to Developers and Customers with the Release of muvee Advanced Multimedia SDK (mAMS)


    mAMS is first app development kit to drastically cut down video app creation time


    muvee Device Solutions Group [DSG], the global leader in video editing applications for mobile devices, today announced the release of the muvee Advanced Multimedia SDK (mAMS) to enable customers, partners and developers to create video applications with video, text, and audio support.


    mAMS eliminates the big hurdles of developers having to learn the intricacies of multimedia frameworks, third party libraries like OpenGL, OpenCV, OpenMax. mAMS also abstracts the compatibility issues with different combinations of CPU application processor chipsets and GPUs (Graphics Processing Unit). mAMS significantly shortens the development time for any video application that requires the creation and encoding of a video file. Such applications typically take up significant resources and time to develop, test and deploy with any scale across multiple devices using different chipsets, screens and OS versions. With mAMS, an average development team will take as little as 6 days to integrate the SDK and create their first proof of concept on one device, and just 6 weeks to full delivery. This enables teams to conduct quick prototyping of fresh new concepts and drastically reduce time to market. This is an important strategic advantage in an industry where platforms are fragmented, product cycles are severely shortened and yet a superior software experience is an important differentiator.

    “The fragmentation in the Android space is well known. Video is a magical medium that entertains, excites and connects more emotionally than any medium. But it’s a beast to deal with. We intend to change that. We have condensed over 10 years of mobile video editing software development into a single massive SDK to empower new experiences from ideas of tomorrow, for the devices of today. mAMS will create a tsunami of innovative video creation applications,” says Terence Swee, Founder & CEO of muvee Technologies.

    mAMS comes with high level APIs for all the utilitarian tasks of trimming, stitching video clips, animating text titles and captions, mixing in background music and other sound effects. The final rendering, file creation and compression of the edit decisions are all handled by mAMS with a few simple API calls. The SDK includes support for cloud integration for pulling down input media, and also uploading to share. One major component of this SDK is muvee’s proprietary CODEN (Compressed Domain Engine) which uses a proprietary technique to manipulate videos within its compressed form, without having to decode and re-encode them. This results in zero quality loss and lightning-fast processing which does not tax the CPU or GPU, resulting in tiny power consumption. CODEN supports trimming, joining, mixing of music tracks and even creates slow motion sequences out of video captured in any framerate. A full featured stack of advanced OpenGL 3D transitions, effects, filters, text animation, video cropping, and even advanced utilities in Audio such as noise suppression, multi-track mixing, audio ducking are included.

Users can easily share via social media or save to their phone. Video and more information on Video Wiz can be found here: http://dsg.muvee.com/LGvideowiz


    Video Editor gives users full control over their story telling. It has a scrollable timeline which allows users to add transitions, effects, captions and even sound effects that they want to highlight. Users can insert a background track and also blend in audio from the video. All effects and transitions can be previewed instantly in full screen mode before rendering the final video production. Sharing via social networks is just a click away. Video and more information on Video Editor can be found here: http://dsg.muvee.com/LGvideoeditor


    “We are pleased to continue our relationship with LG in providing thoughtful and innovative software which unlocks the value of the powerful handsets that LG is creating,” Swee added. “This has been a multi-year effort since the very first applications for feature phones started in 2007. But I see this as just the beginning. With the power of the coming devices and quality of the videos captured, we are very excited about what else we can create together.”

    Over 50 million LG phones with muvee’s video editing applications have shipped to date. Video Wiz and HD Video Editor are Android applications which have been optimized for LG’s handsets. For more information, please visit http://dsg.muvee.com.

    2012

    December 26, 2012: muvee Releases Turbo Video Stabilizer; Software Fixes Shaky Videos in 3 Axes for Consumer Hand Held Videos


    NTurbo Video Stabilizer is the fastest video stabilization software for ultimate video shake removal and rolling shutter correction for GoPro type camcorders


    San Francisco, CA – December 26, 2012 — muvee, the pioneer and leader in automatic movie making software and services, today announced the launch of Turbo Video Stabilizer, the second product added to the Turbo suite of products created specifically to support HD videos from the popular GoPro line of cameras.

    With the rise of popularity in Point of Video (POV) mounted HD camcorders and the ability to shoot HD video from any angle and on the move, post-capture video stabilization software is becoming a must-have for videos in this category. Turbo Video Stabilizer removes the shakes, jitters, and jellos often seen in videos shot from hand-held camcorders, or from cameras like the GoPro when mounted on a moving and vibrating object, like a motorcycle, or snowboard. In addition to video shake removal, the stabilization program also allows users to rotate their video and also automatically fix artifacts usually found in videos from camcorders that use CMOS sensors, commonly called Rolling Shutter Correction.

    Featuring the most advanced image stabilization engine in its class, Turbo Video Stabilizer supports all popular HD formats and is tuned to correct camera movements and shakes in all the 6 motions found in the 3 axes. It is also the fastest, with multi-core and multi-threaded support to take advantage of today’s modern computer platforms.


    Key Features:

  • Revolutionary 3-axes video stabilization engine independently models the X, Y and Z camera axes and also analyzes for the pitch, yaw and rotational moments in the camera motion. It corrects all 6 motions found in hand held videos.
  • Intuitive interface with single click functionality.
  • Smoothes irregular pan or zoom shots, making videos look like they are shot professionally on a dolly.
  • Powerful rolling shutter fix algorithm to fix CMOS sensor video artifacts.
  • Video rotate ensures video shot upside down or vertically can be corrected.
  • Supports all popular HD camcorder formats.
  • Direct upload to Facebook, YouTube, and muvee Cloud.

  • “I am a huge GoPro user, and the videos I shoot give me a headache when I watch them. You can’t worry about camera shakes when you are blasting downhill on your bike, but you don’t have to subject everyone to that distraction. Video stabilization is now a required step in my workflow for all my GoPro videos that I put out there,” Says Terence Swee, CEO of muvee and Ironman triathlete.

    muvee tapped technology partners in Germany for the stabilizer engine, and combined with over ten years of product and user testing expertise, designed Turbo Video Stabilizer around the needs of GoPro and other mounted action camera users.

    Turbo Video Stabilizer is available for a free 3 day trial here at http://www.muvee.com/tvs . An introductory price of $19.99 is offered for a one-time license, or $9.99 per year which includes free updates and all upgrades. An example of video corrected using muvee Turbo Video Stabilizer can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/cwouqng

    July 26, 2012: muvee Launches Turbo Video Cutter As a Solution for GoPro HD Videos


    Video cutter is first of its kind that allows fast trimming, cutting and clipping of multiple HD video clips.


    San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
    muvee, the pioneer and leader in automatic movie-making software and services, today announced the launch of Turbo Video Cutter, the first video cutter download that specifically supports GoPro HD video.

    With the rise in wearable HD sports and POV cameras, muvee saw a void in the market for easy-to-use and fast HD mP4 trimmers. Hours of raw footage can be taken, but users have to replay the video in its entirety to find the hero moments. muvee CEO and Ironman triathlete, Terence Swee, also experienced this when he completed his first Escape from Alcatraz race. With a different GoPro camera mounted for the swim, bike and run, over eight hours of footage had been recorded. Not all of it was exciting or viewer friendly.

    “This was such an iconic triathlon with an exceptionally beautiful course. I wanted to record it to share with my friends back home. Sifting through eight hours of footage was daunting enough. Finding a tool that would allow me to extract the highlights was even more painful. There was nothing out there that let me take those moments and trim and cut them out quickly. I wanted surgical precision and sharpness with zero quality loss. So I had my team create it,” Swee said.

    muvee engineers used existing technology from muvee’s mobile phone division (Device Solutions Group) called CODEN which enabled fast video cutting on HTC mobile devices. CODEN, or Compressed Domain Editing ENgine, uses algorithms that take compressed HD video and cut the scene chosen without decoding the original video.

    With Turbo Video Cutter, users mark the segment they want, cut it out and hit share. That scene is quickly cut in its original resolution and can then be uploaded to Facebook or Youtube directly. Turbo Video Cutter also allows users to choose from multiple HD clips, even if they are overlapping.

    Turbo Video Cutter is available for a free 3 day trial here. An Annual License of $9.95 includes free updates and upgrades. A One-time License is $19.95.

    2011

    September 14, 2011: muvee Celebrates 10th Anniversary with the Launch of muvee Reveal X


    Video editing software includes music, tight integration with muvee Cloud, and upgraded saving capabilities


    SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —
    muvee, the award-winning pioneer and leader in automatic movie making software and applications, today announced the launch of muvee Reveal X, coinciding with its 10th Anniversary.

    muvee Reveal X is the culmination of 10 years of research, over 20 video editing related patents, customer feedback, feature requests and industry firsts. muvee Reveal X is the first automatic video editing program to include Styles with effects, transitions, animated text, 3D particle sequence loops, and video and graphics content built in. Recommended music and fonts have also been hand-picked and bundled to compliment each Style. Segment-level Audio boost features allow control over particular video scenes to be heard louder than background music. Additionally, new Intertitles and Captions support header and sub-text treatments to give the user more personalization options and be able to better tell their story not just through their pictures and videos, but also through text and comments.

    Saving options have also been improved and uploading capabilities for YouTube and Facebook now support the 720P HD streaming service. Saving on the iPhone4 and iPad will also be in 720P H264, with iTunes integration for auto-syncing to iOS devices.

    “After ten years of innovation, with Version X we stepped back and asked, why do people make home movies? Quite simply, it’s to tell a story! When we make a home movie, we really want to share what happened on our Vacation; what the Wedding was like and what little Ethan did at his 3rd birthday party. We then re-imagined our products and carefully focused on features to support that,” said Terence Swee, co-founder and CEO, muvee.

    In addition to launching muvee Reveal X, muvee also launched a tightly integrated cloud component to muvee’s portfolio of desktop software. muvee Cloud is a private sharing space where users can create private albums, share muvees and invite friends to view and contribute photos and videos. For a nominal yearly fee, users get unlimited secured private storage and full access to their original resolution content and discounts on premium products. All muvee Reveal X users get a full-year premium membership.

    muvee Reveal X is available for purchase or upgrade for current customers at www.muvee.com.

    March 23, 2011: muvee Device Solutions Group Demos New Social Media PhotoStory Application for Android at CTIA


    Pulls Photos from Multiple Sources, Presents them in a Live, Interactive Slideshow


    ORLANDO, FL – March 23, 2011 – muvee Device Solutions Group [DSG], the pioneer and leader in video editing applications for mobile devices, today announced that it will demonstrate its new Social Media PhotoStory application for Android operating systems at its CTIA App Pod #2895A this week.

    The latest Android application from DSG takes social photo sharing to a new level, making it easy for tablet and mobile users to view live, interactive slideshows with photos pulled directly from the mobile device as well as social media sites including Facebook, Flickr, and shwup. Metadata is pulled from photos where applicable including comments, likes and photo locations and is only available in full-screen mode. Music can be added from the device as well and incorporated in to the live slideshow. A real-time Twitter feed and the date and time are displayed within the moving background.

    Users have the option to select photos from personal Facebook albums, friends’ albums and from personal shwup albums as well as albums the user has been invited to view.

    Facebook reports that by the end of 2010, 60 billion photos have been uploaded to its site and that uploads average 2.5 billion per month. The social network expects to reach 100 billion photo uploads by this summer. Flickr has also experienced steadily increasing uploads had its 5 billionth photo uploaded in September 2010.

    “Photos have become a quick and personal way to update friends and family,” said Terence Swee, Founder and CEO, muvee. “However, due to the immense volume that’s shared today, users don’t have enough time to consume all this content. Our Social Media PhotoStory app addresses this problem by automatically pulling photos from various sources and presenting them in an unobtrusive, yet professional-looking, slideshow. Users can reach out and touch on any individual photo to find out more, or can just let it slide by until the next interesting shot comes along.”

    The application has two modes that determine which photos are used. The “reminisce” mode pulls past photos, including your oldest albums. The “update” mode will select photos only from the past week. These modes allow the user different experiences while helping them discover new content within their online sphere of influence.

    The app is now available for license to handset makers, operators and tablet docking accessories manufacturers. For more information, please visit http://devices.muvee.com/.

    March 22, 2011: muvee Device Solutions Group Releases 3D Video Editing Technology for Android


    PSkips application for the PC; Becomes first to release 3D video editing technology for Android in the compressed domain


    ORLANDO, FL – March 22, 2011 – muvee Device Solutions Group [DSG], the pioneer and leader in video editing applications for mobile devices, today announced the release of 3D video editing to accompany a suite of HD editing tools for Google’s Android operating systems announced last month at Mobile World Congress.

    muvee recently released CODEN (Compressed Domain Editing Engine), a technology stack that bypasses the need to decompress video before making basic edits. To add to this, muvee has now added enhancements to make this also work for 3D HD videos which could mean up to 2x the amount of video. Now HD 720p video files in 3D can be edited while in a compressed state with the muvee application.

    “Consumers who shoot and share video on their mobile phones expect instant gratification,” said Terence Swee, CEO, muvee. “However, editing video has traditionally been a computationally expensive operation, given the large resolution and complex compression used. By going the way of 3D, this problem doubles. Using smart technologies like CODEN enable users to be able to quickly edit their 3D videos on device, bypassing the need to transfer to a PC.”

    muvee’s announcement follows that of handset maker LG which recently released the LG Optimus 3D smartphone and tablet with user-friendly 3D capture and upload features.

    “LG has been the first to announce the availability to record 3D-HD video on consumer mobile phones,” Swee said. “We believe this trend will continue in tandem with 3D TVs continuing their relentless march toward widespread adoption in the living room. Making the CODEN stack usable for 3D video is valuable to the industry’s efforts to promote user generated 3D content.”

    muvee’s technology uses novel software techniques to accomplish all of the four basic video editing functions in a fraction of the time usually needed, and also requiring much less heap memory space on the phone. This translates to a superior user experience and product differentiation without an increase in manufacturing costs to include more main memory and faster CPUs. With muvee’s new technology, now every camcorder phone is able to achieve this. Devices with dual-lens cameras for 3D video and image capture will be able to utilize muvee’s 3D editing tool.

    The HD video editing toolkit is now available for both feature phone and smartphone handset manufacturers and operators. For more information please visit http://devices.muvee.com/. Each of the four operations can be used to build separate applications or be licensed separately. They are also ready to be shipped as a complete video editing application immediately.

    March 21, 2011: muvee CEO To Speak On the Future Of Mobile Imaging And Video Applications At 6Sight Mobile Imaging Summit


    Terence Swee to join panel of mobile application industry experts as well as demo the latest Android apps from muvee


    ORLANDO, FL – March 22, 2011 –muvee, the pioneer and leader in automatic video editing software and services, today announced that Terence Swee, Founder and CEO of muvee, will be speaking at 6Sight Mobile Imaging Summit during the International CTIA Wireless show on March 22nd which will focus on the mobile imaging industry and available and upcoming technologies and trends. muvee will also be present on the CTIA Exhibits floor in the App World area.

    Swee will be speaking on the panel “Trends in Mobile Imaging” with fellow experts Jiren Parikh from Exclaim Mobility and Amnon Gavish from Vidyo. The panel will be moderated by J. Gerry Purd from MobileTrax. Panel members will focus on the latest imaging and video applications for mobile which have been driving the digital imaging sector of the economy.

    “Since the world’s first phone capable of video recording, pixels have increased 150 times, whereas mobile CPUs have only grown 10 times,” said Terence Swee, CEO, muvee. “We are 15 times less able to crunch pixels in today’s video camera phone than we were when this started. Going forward, we expect to see lots more innovation in the area of mobile video from capturing, storing, editing to sharing.”.

    In addition to speaking, Swee will be demonstrating muvee DSG’s latest mobile applications and toolkit for Google’s Android platform, including 3D and HD video editing tools.

    “muvee started building automatic video editing apps for Nokia in 2004, along with in-app purchase of additional editing templates that we call styles,” Swee said. “In hindsight, we were a few years ahead of our time. But today, apps are an unstoppable engine of growth, and muvee is uniquely positioned to capitalize on our rich technical and business experience in this space and continue to be leaders in multimedia apps for mobile.”

    The 10th annual 6Sight Mobile Imaging Summit takes place during CTIA Wireless on March 22nd from 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. at the Orange County Convention Center, South Hall − Room S330 A-B.

    March 20, 2011: muvee Device Solutions Group Showcases New HD Video Editing Suite for Android OS at CTIA


    Suite of 9 Separate Editing Tools, Including Trimming within the Compressed Domain, Now Available for Handset Manufacturers and Operators


    ORLANDO, FL – March 20, 2011 –muvee Device Solutions Group [DSG], the pioneer and leader in video editing applications for mobile devices, today announced it will be demonstrating its new suite of HD video editing tools for Android operating systems at CTIA App World Pod #2895A. Available for handset manufacturers and operators, the suite of 9 separate tools enables HD video editing on today’s Android-based devices without an increase in manufacturing costs for more main memory and faster CPUs.

    “Consumers have shown that capturing videos is not enough,” said Terence Swee, CEO, muvee.

    ”They want to be able to do something worthwhile with it. Very often this is as simple as trimming it to size, removing that segment where you uttered something objectionable, to just replacing it with a music track. There is no reason why consumers should not be able to do that right there on the phone.”

    An ideal platform for editing and sharing videos, the Android OS continues to experience explosive growth. Recent reports from Nielsen Company and Gartner both show the Android OS dominating smartphone sales in the US. In its analysis of smartphone sales for the last 6 months of 2010, the Neilsen Company shows the Android with a 43 percent market share in the US. Gartner recently reported that manufacturers shipped 67.2 million Android smartphones last year, up from 6.8 million in 2009.

    “Even video editing on the PC has been a rather enthusiast crowd,” Swee added. “We don’t expect consumers to suddenly want to make their next Hollywood blockbuster on the smaller screens with a touch interface. However, what consumers will want to do are simple quick edits to package the video they have shot. We enable them to do just that, using radically fast technology to reduce drain on battery and remove the need for large main memory on device.”


    Each of the nine features can be used to build separate applications or be licensed separately. They are also ready to be shipped as a complete video editing application immediately.


    The Trim and Join Features enable users to cut out selected parts of the video and join any number of videos, of the same type and resolution, together. It also enables users to join images, like creating title screens for their movies. In addition, users can place a music track as background, record a voice-over message over the video, or simply blend music and voice over. These functions use muvee’s compressed domain editing modules so all the above operations can be achieved without the need to decode and re-encode the videos, achieving super fast turnaround times of a few seconds, typically.


    The Image and Text Overlay Feature allows for simple branding for on-the-go marketing videos and video blogging entries and the ability to tell a story with one’s videos. Along with the fade-in/out feature, users can quickly create elegant videos for their sites with powerful imagery, video, and text.

    Also included are Time-warp Features like Slow Motion and Fast Motion, enabling users to create new experiences with the videos that they have shot.

    February 14, 2011: muvee Device Solutions Group Releases HD Video Editing Toolkit for Android


    Suite of 9 Separate Editing Tools, Including Trimming within the Compressed Domain, Now Available for Handset Manufacturers and Operators


    muvee Device Solutions Group [DSG], the pioneer and leader in video editing applications for mobile devices, today announced the release of a suite of HD video editing tools for Android operating systems.

    The toolkit, comprised of nine functions to edit HD video captured with a mobile device, was created to enable video editing on today’s devices with little memory and CPU utilization.

    “Armed with the ability to instantly capture life’s special moments in HD quality, consumers will also demand the ability to make small edits to their videos before showcasing and sharing these videos,” says Terence Swee, Founder and CEO, muvee.

    “The form factor of mobile phones as video capturing devices sometimes means the top and tail ends of captured videos are shaky or even pointing in the wrong places. Being able to trim the ends, perhaps add a voice message, or put an avatar to brand your videos before uploading to YouTube or your blog are all very basic and achievable features for today’s video savvy consumers,” says Swee.

    Each of the nine features can be used to build separate applications or be licensed separately. They are also ready to be shipped as a complete video editing application immediately.


    The Trim and Join features enable users to cut out selected parts of the video and join any number of videos, of the same type and resolution, together.

    February 14, 2011: muvee Device Solutions Group Launches Photo Slideshow Application for Android


    muvee Device Solutions Group Launches Photo Slideshow Application for Android


    mmuvee Device Solutions Group [DSG], the pioneer and leader in video editing applications for mobile devices, today announced the launch of the Social Media Photo Story application for Android operating systems.

    The latest Android application from DSG allows tablet and mobile users to create live interactive slideshows with photos pulled directly from the mobile device as well as social media sites including Facebook, Flickr, and shwup. Data is pulled from photos where applicable including comments, likes and photo locations and is only available in full-screen mode. Music can be added from the device as well and incorporated in to the live slideshow. A real-time Twitter feed and the date and time are displayed within the moving background.

    Users have the option to select photos from personal Facebook albums as well as friends’ albums and from personal shwup albums as well as albums the user has been invited to.

    “Photos have become a quick and personal way to update one another. However, due to the immense volume that’s shared today, users don’t have enough time to consume all this content. Our Social Media PhotoStory app helps fill this need by automatically pulling photos from various sources and presenting them in an unobtrusive, yet professional looking, slideshow. Users can reach out and touch on any one photo to find out more, or just let it slide by until the next interesting shot comes along,” says Terence Swee, Founder and CEO, muvee.

    The application has two modes which determine which photos are used. The “reminisce” mode pulls past photos including your oldest albums. The “update” mode will select photos only from the past week. These modes allow the user different experiences while helping them discover new content within their online sphere of influence.

    January 9, 2011: muvee Ships Over 24 Million Automatic Video Editing Applications in 2010


    New OEM Partners and Applications from muvee Expected to Double that Number in 2011


    muvee, the pioneer and leader in home movie-making software and services, today announced shipment of over 24 million copies including top mobile and camera devices.

    With muvee’s patented technology, consumers on a wide range of devices can create professional-looking home videos in minutes. In addition to muvee’s desktop software available at muvee.com, OEM versions of the automatic movie making software have shipped in Nikon cameras, LG phones, HP computers, Seagate FreeAgent external hard drives, Coby camcorders, Nokia phones and Creative Technology’s Vado cameras. The varying versions of the software typically lack HD capabilities due to codecs costs. Additional partners include Dell, Toshiba, Olympus, Cyworld, Yahoo!, Audiovox, Samsung, Medion, Pioneer and NVIDIA.

    “Way too many previous memories are being captured each day by consumers, but they are all going from cam to RAM. Sharing of personal videos is not about shooting and YouTube-ing, and these visionary companies understand that. We are privileged to add value to their users’ experience by enabling them to easily make great looking movies that their friends and family will enjoy watching…and maybe even help evoke a tear or two,” said Terence Swee, Founder and CEO of muvee.

    The success of muvee’s automatic video applications in mobile phones also led to the creation of the Device Solutions Group in 2010. muvee launched DSG to support OEM partners including LG in incorporating video editing applications in mobile devices. Ten years ago, muvee created the first automatic video editing software and in 2004 muvee was the first to bring video editing to mobile devices. Today muvee continues to be the leader in applications for video editing on the go.

    muvee’s award-winning software can also be found on shwup.com, muvee’s own private and collaborative photo and video sharing site that also allows users to create home movies.

    January 8, 2011: shwup.com Launches Premium Services and Enhanced Movie-Making


    muvee’s Online Private Sharing Site Revamped to Include Premium Movie-making Features from Cloud-based GPU Servers


    muvee, the pioneer and leader in home movie-making software and services, today announced shwup.com has re-launched to enhance the muvee-making process with user-requested features and cloud-based GPU-powered servers.

    muvee launched shwup.com in 2009 as a solution for muvee’s desktop software users to share photos, video and muvees online simply and privately. A version of muvee’s award-winning automatic video editing software was also offered as a free feature for users to make muvees from their photos, video and music as well as a pre-included style.

    With the re-launch of the site users will now have access to over 50 muvee styles, with 5 now currently available. Additional new features include location-based tagging, pre-included licensed music, and a new instant re-mix feature. muvees made by others can be instantly re-mixed with different styles/music combination. Users now preview the new muvees made instantly without having to wait for server side rendering to complete.

    To decrease the saving time, shwup.com has also deployed cloud based GPU servers to render graphics intensive muvees. HD muvees will now be rendered faster than real time.

    Sharing has also been made easier. Shared albums on shwup can be exported to Facebook. Albums can also be synchronized with those on Facebook so that new photos will be added to the corresponding Facebook album.

    “shwup was built on a simple premise: not all Facebook moments are meant to be shared with everyone, but yet, all of us have smaller networks with whom you still want to share and occasionally, un-share. shwup users have been careful to start sharing with a small group, and gradually upload parts of their shwup album to Facebook. They are able to maintain easy control and always able to “unpost” their photos. By deploying advanced systems, we are also able to satisfy their desire for instant movie previews when they collaboratively remix their albums into professional-looking movies,” said Terence Swee, Founder and CEO of muvee.

    With most features still be offered completely free, users can now purchase downloads of muvees in HD and high quality prints of shwup albums for a small fee. muvees made can be downloaded in Video DVD format, 1080p Blu-Ray quality, or physical discs can be ordered and shipped to the user.

In 2006, muvee scored another first by being the first in-camera automatic video editing app to launch in the Nikon S5 Pictmotion cameras. The awarded patents are at the core of the automatic video editing software that has now shipped over 24 million copies in 2010 alone.
    “Protectable IP brings value to our OEM partners and their users. It means that the products they have in their hands are best-in-class and incomparable, always pushing the boundaries and advancing the art to enable their users to produce great looking home movies to share,” added Swee.

Swee was asked to join the panel based on his expertise in the consumer video editing space. muvee creates automatic video editing software that allows the average consumer to create and share professional-looking videos in minutes and upload them online in a click.

    Swee has been asked speak to the estimated 250 PAOs on the importance of online video to reach and teach audiences both personally and professionally, as well as how easily creating videos for these purposes has become with affordable, automated software like muvee’smuvee Reveal.

    “Video has become the preferred platform for telling a compelling story quickly and effectively,” Terence Swee, muvee CEO, emphasized. “Creating an engaging and memorable video does not have to be hard, expensive or time consuming. Our goal is to show the nation’s public affairs officers that simple yet powerful tools are now available to them to make their messages informative and impactful to viewers in their respective countries. Great videos are as effective for government agencies as they are for your friends and family.”

However, according to a recently-released survey of employees working in federal, state and local government, conducted by StrategyOne Research for Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ), nearly one-quarter of government IT professionals still don’t know what Gov 2.0 entails. Despite the lack of awareness, 80 percent of the respondents believe their agency will enact a comprehensive strategy for Gov 2.0 sometime within the next two years.

    August 3, 2009: muvee Opens Platform For Style Creation


    Style customization and authoring now possible for muvee Reveal


    SAN FRANCISCO, Calif – August 3, 2009 — muvee, the pioneer and leader in home movie making software and services, today announced that anyone can now create and customize muvee Reveal styles for free through muvee’s open platform.

    Styles, the templates for muvee’s automatic video editing, define the way video is edited and processed to create a finished production automatically from raw video and images. By opening up the style architecture, muvee will allow users to create their own styles from scratch or modify any of muvee’s existing styles.

    “We’ve introduced this because over the years a lot of our users have asked ‘Can I create my own styles?’ The answer now is yes, you can,” says Dr. Pete Kellock, Co-Founder, muvee. “By opening up all our styles in this way, we’re doing three things: encouraging users to tweak and customize muvee’s styles, providing a large base of material for styles authors to draw upon in creating their own styles, and showing our commitment to making this an open platform for third-party style development. As far as I know, this is the first time there has been an open platform specifically designed for automatic editing and photo-movies.”

    muvee Reveal styles are authored in a scripting language called muSE, a simplified dialect of the Scheme programming language. This allows the style author to have comprehensive control over the look and feel of styles, as well as providing ways to control and leverage muvee’s automatic construction engine. Authors are able to customize the behavior of muvee’s music-responsive visual effects, leverage the unique intelligent summarization features that lie at the heart of muvee products, and add their own visual elements.

    muvee styles make use of industry-standard OpenGL graphics language, providing additional control to style authors. For example style authors can write or import their own shaders (short pieces of code that tell the graphics processor chip how to render objects in a scene).

    A comprehensive set of tutorials and information is available to guide any visitor through the process. To learn more about muvee Reveal style customization and creation, please visit: http://muvee-style-authoring.googlecode.com.

    muvee Studio combines all the automatic video personalization features available on Renoir’s predecessor, the Viewty, but enhancements include adding your own music as well as titles and credits.

    The LG Renoir with muvee Studio will also be available in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and China later this year.

    July 25, 2008: muvee Survey Uncovers That More Than 40 Percent of People Have Been Caught Naked* on Camera!


    Participants Share Insight into Online Video and Photo Habits


    San Francisco – July 25, 2008 – muvee, the leading maker of automatic video editing software, conducted a survey of more than 100 people at San Francisco’s Pier 39 and surrounding areas to find out the real deal when it comes to people’s video/photo habits.

    Though digital and video cameras were a plenty, what the survey uncovered was shocking – 100 percent said they take photos and videos for the purposes of sharing yet 82 percent do nothing with the content they create.

    What’s more, muvee was also able to glean interesting insight into the personal lives of its participants – some mildly inappropriate, some quite funny, and all thought provoking.

  • More than 40 percent of those surveyed have been caught naked on camera
  • More than 25% had inappropriate photos or videos posted to the web without their knowledge
  • 30 percent said they wouldn’t mind sharing these inappropriate photos and videos if they could control who saw them

  • Sound bites from this man-on-the-street survey can be seen at: www.muvee.com/shwup-reveal.

    muvee recently announced two new additions to its product line-up making it easier than ever for anyone to turn their photos and videos into professional looking home movies. muvee Reveal is the successor product to its award- winning muvee autoProducer range of automatic video editing software for the PC. It empowers people to edit their photos and video and set them to music in a matter of seconds with just the click of a mouse button. Using shwup, a totally new concept in collaborative editing technology, consumers can then create, edit and share content online with select friends and family members. shwup makes it easy to gather photos/videos from one event, from several sources in one place for all to enjoy – no more events with missing pictures of the photographer!

    shwup complements muvee’s editing technology making it effortless to upload and download directly to and from muvee Reveal. However, if online is someone’s forte, they can use shwup independently to upload photos and video to make muvees in a completely online environment.

    Interested in learning more about muvee, its products and its online sharing site? Visit www.muvee.com and www.shwup.com for more details.

    *so not to offend, on the actual survey, we used “in a state of undress”

    July 15, 2008: muvee and Cyworld Announce Partnership and Brand New Service


    Members will be able to create and share muvees of their personal media.


    Singapore, Korea, and New York – July 15, 2008 – muvee Technologies Pte Ltd, the pioneer and leader in automatic video editing and Cyworld, South Korea’s largest social networking site, today announced their brand new service for Cyworld members. This collaboration puts the power of muvee’s patented technology in the hands of Cyworld’s more than 20 million users that will now be able to add music and unique styles to their videos and photos to make slick and emotionally engaging muvees that not only shows off their personality, but are also a delight for their online friends to watch. Cyworld users will ultimately have access to hundreds of online editing styles which they can use using Cyworld credits called dotoris to automatically create muvees which they can display on their mini Hompy (Home Pages).

    A recent study by the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OEDC) found that South Korea has the world’s highest household penetration of broadband. South Korea is also known to have the most advanced mobile cellular network in the world. This has helped the South Korean population to become the most advanced consumers of social networking services both online and on mobile wireless networks.

    “Years before ‘Web2.0’ was coined in the West, Korea had already been at the forefront of what we call social media and virtual worlds. muvee is proud to be the chosen platform provider for a service that can both satisfy the ease of use and interactivity demands of discerning Korean internet consumers, and match the scale of Cyworld’s service level requirements. This is a strategic addition to our internet business, which complements global partners we have in the PC and Mobile space. We are very honored to be given this opportunity,” says Terence Swee, CEO of muvee.

    muvee’s goal is to help people to relive and share their special moments, the planned, the unexpected, and everything in between. While Cyworld members can already share their personal media in its original form, they now will have the opportunity to create something fun and new that will add an exciting twist and change the way they express themselves.

    The muvee making service launches today on www.cyworld.com.

    June 11, 2008: muvee Launches New Video Software Tools to Bring Home Movies to the Masses


    Announces Latest PC Product muvee Reveal Alongside shwup.com, a Collaborative Sharing Site That Allows Private Communities to Instantly Create and Share Home Videos


    San Francisco – June 11, 2008 – muvee, the leader in automatic video editing software and services, today announced two new additions to its product line-up giving users advanced tools to turn their photos and videos into professional looking home movies. muvee Reveal is the latest PC version of muvee’s automatic video editing software, which allows people to edit their photos and video and set them to music in a matter of seconds with just the click of a mouse button. shwup is a totally new concept in collaborative editing technology allowing users to create, edit and share content online with select friends and family members. The site allows upload and download directly to and from muvee Reveal and can also be used independently to upload photos and video to make muvees in a completely online environment.

    “Research has shown that only 14 percent of US adults have ever shared a photo by uploading to a sharing site, yet we know people create home movies because they want to share,” said Terence Swee, co-founder and CEO of muvee. “These two new products give people the tools they need to quickly and easily turn their hours of video and hundreds of photos into an emotionally engaging video and then effortlessly share these videos with their private network.”


    Research highlights that consumers waste content they create
    Research conducted by muvee showed that while nearly everybody takes video on their mobile phone or digital camera, more than 80 percent never do anything with it. Consumers simply save it to their PC or leave it on their device. Nearly two-thirds don’t know what they can do with the content they create and more than 80 percent never upload their video to private or public sharing sites on the Internet. Filmed interviews with some of these consumers can be viewed here.



    It’s all about the editing
    muvee Reveal, the successor product to the award-winning muvee autoProducer, represents the next generation of automatic video editing. With muvee’s style-based and music-driven Artistic Intelligence™, a few clicks allows users to simply choose from the eight editing styles and add their own music track, to instantly create a movie or “muvee.” muvee Reveal also sports a powerful new underlying video rendering architecture, which enables users to preview their project immediately in full-screen HD quality, full-framerate, complete with a new set of 3D effects and transitions specially created for their media. The user interface of the product was designed around a single user experience from creation to sharing; a result of hundreds of hours of usability tests and discussions with users.


    Videos mean nothing if they aren’t shared
    shwup is a natural extension of muvee’s easy-to-use desktop experience, providing users with a free platform to easily aggregate and share their precious memories and collaboratively edit them with their friends and family. Users can create albums of events and invite other participants to come and privately view the content without having to sign up. Friends and family can also add their own content to the same album, which shwup’s engine – featuring the same patented technology as muvee Reveal – then automatically transforms into one collaborative “muvee” of an event. Users can also choose to make “muvees” on their own with one of the more than twenty styles featured on shwup. In three simple steps, shwup allows users to pool together media in different formats, from multiple cameras present at the event, while still allowing individuals to create their own versions of that combined album, expressing their own personal style.

    muvee has been developing automatic video editing technology since 2001 allowing people to create and share professional-quality instant home movies out of unedited video, photos and music. muvee licenses consumer software products for a range of platforms and devices including PCs, digital still cameras, camera cell phones , photo kiosks and social media sites. It has global agreements with consumer electronics giants including HP, Dell, Nokia LG, Olympus and Nikon.

    muvee Reveal is available today at www.muvee.com and shwup is now open to all at www.shwup.com .

    April 2, 2008: muvee Unveils A New Brand Identity


    Introduces a new logo, tagline, and sets a course for the future


    Singapore and San Francisco – April 2, 2008 – muvee today announced its new brand identity and corporate tagline, designed to enhance the company’s profile and to communicate its value proposition to its customers and partners. As a pioneer and leader in the automatic video editing space, muvee has been a strong champion of innovation and differentiation from its genesis.

    “muvee created the automatic video editing space with the launch of autoProducer almost seven years ago. Today we are changing not just how consumers will share their life’s magical moments, but also how they will experience the muvee brand,” said Terence Swee, founder and CEO of muvee. “We stepped back and looked carefully to understand how our users have been using muvee’s products. We garnered several insights: from their child’s first steps, to simply watching them squealing down the playground slide, these are special moments in their lives that mean a great deal to our users; and to the people they care about. Our products help them re-live and share those moments.”

    The new tagline “life expressed” celebrates what muvee is about and how its customers will come to experience the services. ”life expressed” is about taking life’s magical moments and giving customers the tools to express and share them. “As we embrace this strategy, we will also embrace a new logo that better embodies the muvee personality; always fun, unexpected and bursting with life.” said Swee.

    The new logo and slogan are just the first of many exciting moves. A new website will be followed by a new office opening in San Francisco. muvee will also be launching new products over the coming months which embody a slew of patent pending technologies that let consumers seamlessly create and share videos which delight and entertain. The new offerings will continue to set the standard in creating and sharing personal media and further cement muvee’s position as the global leader and innovator in this field.

    February 28, 2008: muvee to Join Industry Leaders as Panelist at World Effie Festival


    CEO Terence Swee Tapped to Discuss “How to Own An Idea”


    Singapore and San Francisco – April 2, 2008 – muvee, the pioneer and leader in instant home movies, announced today that CEO Terence Swee has been selected to speak at the inaugural World Effie Festival. Swee will join fellow industry leaders as part of a panel titled, “How Do You Own An Idea?”. The event, which features a distinguished cast of speakers from some of the world’s most powerful brands such as CNN, Yahoo!, MTV and Newsweek, will take place February 28-29, 2008 at the Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Center in Singapore. The panel will take place on Friday, February 29 at 9 a.m. local time in MR 208/209.

    “Participating in this inaugural event alongside these industry giants speaks to the strength of the muvee products and brand,” said Swee. “As the inventors of automatic video editing, muvee has had the chance to define our space and change the way many consumers share life’s magical moments that they’ve captured. In the short span of six years, we have moved the needle away from consumer manual home movie solutions toward something faster, easier and more useable. Our products produce far more professional looking videos that are also emotionally engaging and a delight to share. I look forward to sharing the lessons I’ve learned along the way with my fellow marketers and industry leaders.”

    muvee began in 2001 as an idea between entrepreneurs and academics that shared expertise in digital music, video and software design. They wanted to create a software solution that could automatically and intelligently create movies that sync pictures and videos to music, timed to professional looking styles that include the appropriate transitions and effects. Seven years later, the company’s automatic video editing software is distributed globally in multiple languages by the key players in the PC, camera and mobile phone space such as HP, Dell, Sony, Nikon, Olympus, Nokia and LG, as well as through its Web site at www.muvee.com. During his panel presentation, Swee will share his experiences and lessons learned during the journey of creating and growing muvee into a global brand, offering audience the “Four Ds” of owning an idea: Define, Distance, Distribute and Develop.

    The World Effie Festival, dedicated to understanding, inspiring and celebrating creative effectiveness in communications, will bring together more than 2,000 professionals from across the globe to celebrate marketing excellence. The event is presented by the New York American Marketing Association and the Institute of Advertising Singapore.

    September 7, 2007: Orca Interactive and muvee Team Up to Introduce the First-Ever Automatic Movie Creation over IPTV


    Innovative UGC application LivePhotos expected to enhance service offerings and will be demonstrated at IBC 2007



    Ra’anana, Israel and Singapore – September 7, 2007 – IBC Stand 2.230 –
    Orca Interactive Ltd. (LSE: ORCA), a market pioneer in providing IPTV middleware and applications, and muvee, the pioneer and leader in instant home movies, today announced an agreement to develop and market LivePhotos, the first-ever application for automatic movie-making over IPTV platforms. LivePhotos combines Orca’s cutting edge user-generated content (UGC) capabilities with muvee’s automatic video editing and photo movie software to produce a groundbreaking new service designed to enhance IPTV service offerings. Orca will demonstrate LivePhotos, which is based on RiGHTv scalable architecture, at the IBC exhibition in Amsterdam in booth 2.230 from September 7-11, 2007.

    Orca Interactive plans to offer LivePhotos with its advanced RiGHTv IPTV middleware by the end of 2007. It will be a part of a comprehensive on-demand UGC platform enabling triple-play service providers and network operators to differentiate their offerings and drive new revenues. In addition, Orca and muvee will also consider jointly marketing the new UGC application as a stand-alone solution compatible with all IPTV platform types.

    Powered by muvee’s patented technology for automatic video editing, LivePhotos will enable subscribers to create personalized video albums from their photos and video clips, accompanied by their preferred style of music. Orca’s flexible user interface (UI) adds easy-to-use functionality for creating instant home movies over IPTV, bringing the fun and magic of movie-making to the television screen.

    Terence Swee, founder and CEO of muvee, said, “muvee’s technology lets people instantly create more emotionally engaging productions that stylishly mash-up their video and pictures in sync to music with added special effects. The result is a much more compelling alternative to scrolling through hundreds of digital stills or having to watch unedited video footage.” He added, “Together with Orca Interactive, we will deliver more fun and value to subscribers by letting them easily create more personalized, meaningful content that they can enjoy and, more importantly, instantly share with those closest to them on their TV screen .”

    “User-generated content is increasingly attracting ‘eyeballs’ away from professionally-produced content, and operators realize that they can entice subscribers by helping them use the IPTV platform to see more of themselves and their friends,” commented Sefy Ariely, VP Sales and Marketing of Orca Interactive. “In joining forces with automatic video editing pioneer, muvee, to create LivePhotos, we are able to leverage our position at the cutting edge of IPTV technology and once again deliver an industry first – personalized home videos at the click of a button.”

    August 21, 2007: muvee to Present Framework for Autonomous Testing at Second Annual Google Test Automation Conference


    Innovative UGC application LivePhotos expected to enhance service offerings and will be demonstrated at IBC 2007



    Singapore and New York – August 21, 2007 –
    muvee, the pioneer and leader in instant home movies, will present its muvee Framework for Autonomous Testing (muFAT) at the exclusive Second Annual Google Test Automation Conference (GTAC), held in New York on August 23 and 24, 2007. muFAT, an innovative test automation framework that significantly streamlines the test automation process, is designed to simultaneously perform various aspects and levels of automated testing without the need for separate data sets, test environments and testing tools .

    Posting on Google’s Testing Blog at http://googletesting.blogspot.com/2007/03/2nd-annual-google-test-automation.html, Allen Hutchison, engineering manager at Google, said, “Some of the most difficult challenges in creating great software are guaranteeing it works every time, for every customer, ensuring that it will scale well, and making it accessible to all users. While there are many good solutions for automated testing, there is plenty of room for innovation. Our goal is to create a collegial atmosphere where participants can discuss challenges facing people on the cutting edge of test automation, evaluate solutions for meeting those challenges, and have a little fun.”

    muvee’s unified framework provides a single interface for testing that can be reused by software development and qualification professionals alike, regardless of the level of abstraction they are working at. This facilitates communication amongst those working on the quality aspect of the software by allowing them to report and resolve bugs in a technically comprehensive manner.

    “ muvee’s applications have multiple implementation layers, and we’ve been constrained by the limited scope of existing testing tools. Developing our own testing framework lets us conduct a more comprehensive range of automated tests so we can create more robust products for our users while saving resources, time and money,” said Ali-Akber Saifee, software engineer at muvee, who will be presenting at the conference.

    March 13, 2007: muvee and MTV Asia Spice Up User-Generated Video with ‘Film A Clip, Win The Trip’ Online muvee-Making Contest


    Top muvee-makers win tickets to the 2007 MTV Movie Awards in Hollywood



    Singapore and New York –– March 13, 2007 –
    muvee, the pioneer and global leader in automatic video editing, has partnered with MTV Networks Asia to launch an online muvee-making contest in anticipation of the 2007 MTV Movie Awards. Registered MTV members in Singapore can enter the contest, sponsored by Kinder Bueno, at www.mtvasia.com/movieawards by submitting a combination of short video clips and pictures of their fun and quirky moments for remixing into a muvee.

    In 3 steps, MTV members upload up to 100MB of their video clips and/or pictures, select a music track and choose a themed style from the collection of 10 styles provided at the contest site. They can also give their muvee a title and end credits before clicking ‘Make muvee’. muvee’s back-end web service then automatically creates a slick, MTV-style music video by cutting highlights of the user’s footage to the beat of the music, with synchronized visual effects based on the chosen style. Finished muvees are posted to the site’s online gallery for member voting, and 4 grand prize winners will walk away with a 3-day, 2-night trip to attend MTV’s Movie Awards in Los Angeles.

    “MTV is at the heart and soul of bringing video imagery to music and so it makes perfect sense that their members should have a fun and easy way of creating music videos of their own to share online. muvee is excited about collaborating with MTV Networks Asia to bring this one-of-a-kind service to its members,” said Philip Morgan, muvee’s Chief Operating Officer.

    Robert Kim, Senior Director, Digital Media for MTV Networks Asia, said, “muvee’s online service is ideal for this contest, and helps us engage our members in a very unique way. Together with muvee, we’re giving our members a fuss-free and remarkably simple tool for self expression through online music video creation.”

    MTV Asia’s ‘Film A Clip, Win The Trip’ muvee-making contest takes place online at www.mtvasia.com/movieawards from March 4 to April 15, 2007.

It’s obvious that a growing number of people across all age groups are taking a lot more pictures and short video clips everywhere they go. muveeNow presents our core automatic video and slideshow creation capabilities in a remarkably simple, barrier-free interface that makes it even easier for them to instantly turn this content into personalized, emotionally engaging productions that are ready to share on DVD, via email, or online on a blog or video-hosting site.”

    In 3 steps, users select their pictures and video clips, add in a track of their own music and choose a video editing style from the collection of 8 styles that are included with the software. muveeNow then automatically generates a finished production by cutting highlights of the user’s footage to the beat of the music, with synchronized visual effects based on the chosen style. Users can also download over 100 additional plug-in styles themed for different occasions from muvee’s styleLabs at www.muvee.com/styleLabs. muvees can be previewed in full-screen, instantly remade using different media and styles, and saved in a variety of popular formats for computer playback, email, web sharing and DVD burning. muveeNow also incorporates Athentech’s Perfectly Clear©® image correction technology for automatic photo touch-ups such as red-eye correction, photo enhancement and noise removal.

    muveeNow 2.0 will retail at $49.95 and be available in 13 languages from mid-March at www.muvee.com. The software will support Windows XP, Windows 2000 and be Works with Windows Vista certified to ensure optimized performance on Microsoft’s new operating system.

    muvee Technologies will be demonstrating muveeNow 2.0 at PMA 2007, which will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center between March 8 and 11. muvee is located at South Hall, 2nd Floor, Booth #U161/163.

    January 24, 2007: muvee Appoints Terence Swee as New CEO


    Former CEO Dr. Pete Kellock to carry on a new high-level strategic role



    SINGAPORE and NEW YORK –– January 24, 2007 –
    muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, announced that it has named Terence Swee, co-founder and Chief Opportunities Officer, as the company’s new CEO effective this month. He will also join muvee’s board of directors. Co-founder and former muvee CEO, Dr. Pete Kellock, will remain a Director, taking on a new high-level role within the company that focuses more on strategy, innovation and evangelism.

    “Leading muvee for the last 7 years has been a wonderful experience and a privilege and I now want to focus on a number of key strategic tasks to further muvee’s expansion. I’m looking forward to doing more of what I love: strategizing, inventing and developing revolutionary products, making muvees, and understanding our end-users,” said Kellock. “Terence is a natural leader and front-man for the company. He’s young, energetic, smart and charismatic and I think he’ll make an outstanding CEO. We have a deep friendship and we’ve both worked very much as equals to take muvee this far, so there won’t be any major changes of direction or style, but I hope the change of leadership will take our energy level to yet another high as we continue to grow.”

    Kellock and Swee founded muvee in 2001, working hand in hand to build the company with their shared vision. Last year alone, muvee’s successes included the signing of a major partnership agreement with Warner Music Group, the embedding of muvee’s automatic video editing technology on LG phones, the launch of new products for photo kiosks and online portals and most recently, the launch of the latest version of its flagship PC software, muvee autoProducer 6, which generated a record level of sales that was almost double that of the previous year.

    Dr. Kellock added, “My belief in what we’re doing is as strong as ever. We’re in an exploding market at exactly the right time, with no competition even close to us. We’re financially strong, with a uniquely-talented, multi-disciplinary team that any competitor would find very hard to replicate. And what we’re doing is fun and incredibly cool. I love muvee and the revolution we’re engaged in with as much passion as I did when we set out on this path 7 years ago. Now I want to play a slightly different role in the revolution and help take us to the next level.”

    Swee said, “Pete and I have worked so closely that we often think alike. There will not be any fundamental change in the direction of muvee and I will continue to lead muvee and interface with our partners with the same level of integrity and passion that Pete has inculcated at all levels of the company. We’ll continue to add to our very talented international team and focus on our key strengths. With the support of the strong business relationships and financials that we have built up, we expect to be even more aggressive in our growth and penetration of certain markets.”

    December 7, 2006: muvee Moves to its New, 100% Staff-Designed Headquarters


    Expanded 20,000 square-foot space is a technologically advanced, one-of-a-kind work and play ground optimized for creativity, collaboration and interaction



    SINGAPORE — December 7, 2006 –
    muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, today officially celebrated its move to its new headquarters at BOC Plaza. Fully designed based on the collective ideas of muvee’s 80-strong staff, the 20,000 square feet of space now boasts state-of-the art technology such as IT boards and over 450 data ports providing ubiquitous high-speed Internet access, as well as leisure facilities on site including a fully-equipped theater-cum-production studio, a ‘50s-styled retro American diner, games zone and gym.

    Spread across 2 floors at BOC Plaza, muvee’s new headquarters is, uniquely, the brainchild of the entire staff, which is made up of technologically-savvy and creative individuals from over 16 countries. The office design project commenced early in 2006, and kicked off with a 3-month feedback-gathering exercise to consolidate the suggestions of every muvee employee in order to create a unique, fun work environment that encourages productivity and inspires creativity. More than a hundred ideas were given, and over 90% of them were eventually incorporated into the final design.

    Mr. Philip N. Morgan, muvee’s Chief Operating Officer and project leader for all design and construction activities of the new headquarters said, “We are truly proud of this mammoth project as it is probably one of the most ambitious undertakings in muvee’s history. Staff recruitment and retention were key considerations. Everything here – from the minutest to the grandest detail – originated from our staff, and everyone is encouraged to personalize his/her own work space. It is a great place to work and play, as it promotes innovation, creativity and expression at every corner that you turn.”

    One of the highlights of muvee’s new headquarters is the sound-proof, 30-seat muvee theater, which also serves as a group presentation room, in-house production studio and ‘jamming’ studio for muvee’s resident band. Another popular hub is the ‘50s-styled retro American diner, which is outfitted with booth seats and decorated with memorabilia, including vintage American license plates purchased off eBay.

    In addition to being staff designed, muvee assumed the role of main contractor and undertook the overall project management of the renovation and outfitting of the facility. This included doing the space planning, technical drawings, supplies procurement and supervision of specialist sub-contractors. The company also used manpower from ‘Teen Challenge’ to support the Yellow Ribbon campaign.

    Added Mr. Morgan, “In maintaining control over this project from the very start to finish over all aspects, we ensured that we got exactly what we wanted with almost no compromise, and at substantial savings. We worked with existing constraints in the architecture and layout of the space, and managed to complete the facility in a little over 6 weeks and at 40% below budget. We can unequivocally say that this headquarters is reflective of the kind of company we are: unique, driven by passion in everything we do. We leapfrog traditional approaches to problems and come up with new solutions. When you walk into our headquarters, you walk into a culture.”

    Other features of muvee’s new facilities include a 2,000-square foot data center that houses a software testing lab, server room and command center, a napping room with a La-Z-Boy recliner, a video editing suite, a War Room for strategic planning, a touch-down room for guests and a steam shower and laundry area. Previously located at The Bencoleen, muvee’s new headquarters at BOC Plaza is now in the culturally-rich, vibrant Civic District.

    October 16, 2006: muvee Teams With Warner Music Group To Transform User-Generated Content


    New online service allows users to create personalized remixes using artist videos.


    Singapore, London and New York — October 16, 2006 – muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, and global music content company, Warner Music Group Corp. (NYSE: WMG), today announced a strategic business agreement that gives users a quick, easy and legal way of weaving their personal video clips and photos into original artist music videos, tour footage and behind-the-scenes concert reels. In signing this deal, WMG becomes the first music company to use muvee’s groundbreaking technology to enable fans to engage and interact with their favorite artists in a completely new way that will transform consumers’ experience of user-generated video creation and sharing.

    muvee will draw from WMG’s extensive catalog of premium artist content to create a series of special artist styles that can be used to make music video remixes – which are called muvees. To make a muvee, users simply upload video clips and pictures of their own and select an artist style. muvee’s back-end Web service will then automatically synchronize and blend highlights of users’ footage with scenes from the artist music video to create a unique finished production. WMG and muvee collaborated earlier this year to let Jason Mraz fans create their own video mash-ups using footage from the artist’s original ‘Geek In The Pink’ music video. Both companies now are working together to roll the service out to artists across the breadth of WMG’s roster. The service will be initially available at artist sites and will be advertiser-supported. The next artist site to feature muvee will be Tori Amos at www.everythingtori.com, with more artist projects to follow across a range of genres and territories. In addition, consumers will soon be able to access the muvee web-based service directly from their mobile devices.

    Alex Zubillaga, Executive Vice President, Digital Strategy and Business Development, WMG, commented, “We’re delighted to be teaming up with muvee to further enrich consumers’ experience of our artists and their music. We embrace the technologies that are transforming entertainment and media and believe it is compelling new tools such as muvee’s that allow us to creatively empower fans whilst respecting the rights of artists and copyright holders.”

    Pete Kellock, muvee’s founder and CEO, said, “It makes perfect sense to bring together the strengths of muvee and WMG. Together we’re introducing amazing and revolutionary new experiences, such as letting people ‘dance with their favorite star’ by seamlessly weaving their personal video and photos into music videos. Music videos are cool; now they’re cool and personal. For six years muvee has been developing and perfecting unique technology for creating music-driven video productions using user-generated content, delivering professional results in a way that’s incredibly easy for users. We’re taking this to another level by combining our technology, products and services with WMG’s great array of major artists. Every filmmaker knows how music brings images to life. We’re bringing this power to internet users in a dramatic new way.”

    Just last month, muvee launched its own online video mixing site at www.muveemix.com. This free Web service lets users automatically create finished video mixes out of their uploaded videos, pictures and music, and extends muvee’s capabilities to yet another popular platform where consumers share video. muvee’s technology is already available around the world in consumer products by HP, Nokia, Sony, Nikon and LG, and muvee expects to make artist styles available to its current list of global partners in the near future. muvee will be demonstrating its award-winning automatic video creation technology on various platforms at the 3GSM World Congress Asia, held in Singapore from October 16-20 (Level 6, Hall 602, stand #B01).

    This is the latest announcement to highlight Warner Music’s commitment to innovation in the digital space. In September, WMG entered into an agreement to distribute on YouTube the library of music videos from WMG’s world-renowned roster of artists as well as behind-the-scenes footage, artist interviews, original programming and other special content. In a first-of-its-kind arrangement, YouTube users will be able to incorporate music from WMG’s recorded music catalog into the videos they create and upload onto YouTube. Last week, WMG also announced a strategic business relationship that gives Google users the ability to stream on-demand WMG’s extensive music video collection for free, through an ad-supported revenue sharing agreement, or to purchase videos online for download. Warner Music has also unveiled a series of strategic partnerships around the world, including agreements with Beeline, one of Russia’s leading mobile networks, China Unicom, the world’s third-largest mobile operator, and SK Telecom, Korea’s foremost broadband and wireless provider.

    September 28, 2006: muvee Teams With Warner Music Group To Transform User-Generated Content


    muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, has released its new photoMemories stylePack, specifically designed for making muvees out of digital pictures.


    Singapore and New York — September 28, 2006 – muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, has released its new photoMemories stylePack, specifically designed for making muvees out of digital pictures. This plug-in stylePack for muvee autoProducer software features 6 new styles: Dynamic Colorplay, Geometry, Paper Frames, Photo Play, Reflections and Timeless Tribute.

    The styles in photoMemories show off your pictures in their entirety, so nothing is lost and you can enjoy them in full, said muvees Style Director, Karen Ng. Weve incorporated different artistic elements into photoMemories, such as using colors and hues in Dynamic Colorplay, and playing with depth in Reflections. What you get are stylish, professional-looking productions that bring your pictures to life in a way that ordinary slideshows cant. These styles also work well with digital video footage too.”

    The effects in Dynamic Colorplay use variations in color range, brightness and contrast, hue and saturation. Geometry features a subtle grid-like theme, and Paper Frames adds a country-style border to pictures that is embellished with soft brush strokes and dried flower motifs. Subtle rotations and zooms make up Photo Play, while Reflections gives depth to pictures as they glide in and out of frame. Timeless Tribute is a black-and-white style that frames pictures against a black background with elegant flower motifs.

    muvee offers over 100 additional plug-in styles for its muvee autoProducer software. Each style has its own set of themed effects and transitions which are intelligently applied to video highlights and pictures, and automatically synchronized to the tempo of the user’s chosen music. Users can instantly give their video and pictures a new look and feel by applying a different style.

    The photoMemories stylePack retails for US$19.95 and is available for download from www.muvee.com/stylelabs.

    September 25, 2006: muvee Teams With NuCORE to Showcase Next Generation Multimedia Slideshows with Automatic Creation and HD Display for CE Applications


    Companies demonstrate at photokina 2006 a complete hardware and software platform for CE manufacturers to embed into their devices


    Cologne, Germany — September 25, 2006 – muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, has collaborated with NuCORE Technology, a developer of leading edge digital image processors, to deliver the first proof-of-concept of its automatic multimedia slideshow creation technology embedded in a CE device. By integrating muvees technology into the NuCORE CleanCapture SiP-1280 digital image processor, both companies will demonstrate how end users will be able to automatically and instantly create compelling photo slideshows that are paced to music and ready for on-screen viewing in HD quality.

    This proof-of-concept is a very compelling solution for CE manufacturers who want to offer their customers a much more appealing alternative to viewing static digital images or plain slideshows in sub-optimal quality, said Terence Swee, muvees founder and Chief Opportunities Officer. He added, At muvee, we stretch ourselves each day to improve muvees Artistic Intelligence automatic editing engine to make the most emotionally engaging productions from home videos and digital pictures. With the power of NuCOREs image processor embedded in a CE device, we are now able to bring this marriage of art and science, in real time and in HD quality to a myriad of CE manufacturers, enabling them to deliver a much more innovative and meaningful way for people to bring the emotion of their digital memories to life on a HD screen at 1280 x 720 resolution. We believe as hardware manufacturers max out on storage size, optical resolution, screen size, and price, they will be looking out for new ways to bring more fun and value to their customers through innovative software. Were excited about having worked with NuCORE on this significant development, and are looking forward to its implementation on a wide range of devices in the near future.

    muvees technology enables users to easily and instantly turn their digital pictures into professional-quality, finished productions that transition in response to music called muvees. Users simply select the pictures that they want to use and choose a muvee style, which contains patented technology, unique effects and transitions that are artistically applied to the users material and synchronized to the tempo and mood of the music for added impact.

    Saul Altabet, senior director of marketing for NuCORE Technology, said, muvees ease of use and its ability to automatically synchronize pictures to music sets it apart from other slideshow applications because the end result is more compelling and enjoyable to watch. By combining our high-performance image processing and HD display capabilities, we are now able to offer CE manufacturers the next level of multimedia slideshow creation in HD quality. There is great potential for embedding this offering in HDTVs, or any other device that consumers use to display their digital media on a TV, such as cameras, camcorders, set-top boxes, or MP3 player docking stations.”

    muvee will be demonstrating this proof-of-concept to customers at photokina 2006, held in Cologne, Germany, from September 26 to October 1, in Hall 04.1, Aisle E, Booth #041.

These phones are also very personal devices that typically pack a powerful processor and operating system. By embedding our patented Artistic Intelligence automatic video production engine, LG is signifying to the world that their phones are ready for the video-centric users of today. Plain slideshows with background music just dont cut it anymore because todays savvy consumer demands a video experience that is not only rich but also emotionally engaging. By using muvees technology, LG harnesses over 5 years of dedicated research and a handpicked team of engineers who are technically advanced and artists in their own right, said Terence Swee, muvees founder and himself, a published engineer and accomplished jazz pianist.

This offering aims to enhance LGs customers experiences with their phones, and lets them show and share their photos in a more compelling way.

    muvee Studio can be accessed on the phone via Menu > Camera > muvee Studio. Upon launching the program, users only need to select the pictures they want to use and choose a style before making their production, which is called a muvee. Styles determine the look and feel of the final production, and each style includes its own music, effects and transitions. muvee Studio includes five styles Classic Sepia, Forever Yours, Moody, Over-The-Top Music Video and Pro: Very Fast.

    Users can also control the sequencing of their pictures in the final muvee by choosing either the Shuffle or Ordered option. muvees can be previewed immediately, and instantly remade using different pictures and/or styles. muvees are saved in K3G video format, and can be sent via multimedia message to other phones.

    May 17, 2006: Whitech Licenses muvee’s Automatic Video Production Technology to Enable Photo-Movie Creation on Photo Teller™ Kiosks


    muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, has licensed its muveeKiosk software development kit (SDK) to Whitech Software Solutions for integration with the latter’s photo kiosks.


    Singapore and New York — May 17, 2006 – muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, has licensed its muveeKiosk software development kit (SDK) to Whitech Software Solutions for integration with the latters photo kiosks.

    “Instead of just printing the odd picture, Photo.Teller kiosk users will now have the exciting new option of turning their photos into professional-quality productions that look like home movies and can be played back on DVD and viewed on the big screen. Unlike slideshows, Photo Movies really bring out the emotion in your photos because of the way the software cuts everything to the beat of the music.

    May 8, 2006: muvee autoProducer 5 Lets Gamers Automatically Create Compelling Video Summaries of Their Best Plays


    muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, has partnered Gainward Technology to bundle muvee’s automatic video production software with Gainward’s graphic cards.


    Singapore and New York, NY — April 27, 2006 – muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, has launched its new Hi-Octane stylePack featuring 6 video-driven styles that will get pulses racing with radical music video aesthetics. Pushing the envelope on style effects, Hi-Octane is ideal for creating fast-paced, high-energy, action-packed muvees.

    Karen Ng, muvees style director said, The Hi-Octane pack has earned street creed for its styles, which are gritty but cool, and perfect for high-impact muvees. We’ve introduced a lot of new effects in this pack such as rewind and replay on highlights, graffiti and rapid overlays. We keep working to improve our styles, such that they really are a cut above anything else out there today.

    The 6 styles in Hi-Octane are: Adrenalin, Rush, Precision, Dirt, Urban and Wicked. Adrenalin gets the energy going with hard-pumping vertical rays, twist zooms, screen jolts and desaturated colors. Rush includes rewind and replay effects and an on-screen time code for movement tracking, while Precision has a viewfinder overlay, sporadically framing the shots for a video game look and feel. Oil spills, scratches, smears and other dirt effects make up Dirt. Urban is host to a street art look with rapid cuts, freeze frames and animated graffiti text overlays, and Wicked rounds the pack up with unexpected time warps and volumetric light effects.

    muvee offers over 100 additional plug-in styles for its muvee autoProducer software. Each style has its own set of themed effects and transitions which are intelligently applied to video highlights and pictures, and automatically synchronized to the tempo of the user’s chosen music. Users can instantly give their video and pictures a new look and feel by applying a different style.

    The Hi-Octane stylePack retails for US$19.95 and is available for download from www.muvee.com/stylelabs.

    February 23, 2006: muvee Launches Automatic Video Solution for Photo Kiosks at PMA 2006


    More than just a slideshow, muveeKiosk technology enables photo kiosk users to instantly create emotive music video productions out of their photos and video clips


    Singapore and New York, NY — February 23, 2006 – muvee, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, launches its muveeKiosk software at the 2006 Photo Marketing Association (PMA) Convention in Orlando, Florida. When integrated, the muveeKiosk plug-in works seamlessly within an existing photo kiosks software setup, extending the kiosks product offering beyond standard music compilation, photo touchup, photo printing and CD/DVD-burning. muveeKiosk does this by enabling consumers to automatically turn scores of pictures and even video clips from all popular digital cameras into emotionally engaging music video productions. With support for various output formats, consumers can choose to share their finished muvees online on blogs or video-sharing websites, or burn them to CD/DVD.

    Terence Swee, muvee’s founder and Chief Opportunities Officer, said, muvee’s award winning automatic editing technology has proven to be wildly popular with PC users and is already bundled globally with a myriad of consumer products. We are very excited to now make our technology available to photo kiosks. Kiosks are great for printing a handful of your best images, but muveeKiosk gives users a more meaningful way of enjoying all of their pictures even the ones they don’t print as well as any video clips they might have. Flipping through 100 stills on disk is plain dull, and ordinary slideshows are uninspiring. muvee revives and differentiates any photo kiosk by letting users create stylish productions that come to life to the beat of any chosen music track.

    At a muvee-enabled kiosk, users can select and print photos from popular sources such as CD, mobile phone or Flash memory, but also enjoy an extra option to create and burn a compelling muvee CD/DVD of all their images using one of the included muvee production styles. muvee’s styles are themed templates containing unique music, effects and transitions that are applied to the user’s chosen media and synchronized to the music, and there are over 100 to choose from. muvee’s Artistic Intelligence engine works in minutes to automatically create a professional-looking, CD- or DVD-ready muvee production that captures the essence of the user’s digital media. Video can also be woven in with photos in a single production.

    Terence added, The ubiquity of digital cameras and the affordability of Flash memory mean that more people are taking a greater number of pictures and videos at every eventmore pictures and video than they know what to do with. Consumers are beginning to demand interesting new solutions to handle the growing volume of digital media captured with these cameras. muveeKiosk is therefore ideally positioned to deliver an entirely new and compelling premium solution for photo kiosk makers who wish to enhance their service offering, add value for their customers and significantly boost their returns.

    The muveeKiosk software development kit (SDK) is currently available for licensing. muvee will be showcasing its automatic video production capabilities at PMA 2006, held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando from February 26 to March 1, at booth #3398.

    December 19, 2005: muvee Enables eVideoShare Users to Instantly Create Stylish, Edited Video Productions for Upload



    Singapore and New York, NY–– December 19, 2005 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and leader in instant personal video, has teamed with eVideoShare to embed muvee quickSpin, its zero-click automatic video production tool, in eVideoShare’s video upload client for PCs. eVideoShare client users will now be able to quickly turn their unedited video clips and even pictures into compelling, finished ‘muvees’, which can then be posted directly onto eVideoShare.com via the upload client for others to view.

    Mohamed Reezan, muvee’s Strategic Marketer, said, “Practically everyone shoots home video that they want to show and share – of kids, birthday parties, vacations, pets and more. Now, instead of uploading just the raw, unedited footage, you can launch quickSpin to instantly set video highlights to your favorite music using a style of your choice. quickSpin does this completely automatically, so turning your video and pictures from ‘blah’ to ‘wow’ is effortless. What you get is a ‘muvee’ that brings out the feeling in your media, making the end product much more meaningful to upload and share.”

    eVideoShare users launch muvee quickSpin using a button on the client interface. Upon launch, muvee quickSpin will automatically scan the user’s PC for videos, pictures and music before instantly creating a finished production on the fly for preview. Users can select their media folders, change the production style and even download additional plug-in styles from www.muvee.com/stylelabs.

    The Kids stylePack retails at US$19.95 and features styles such as School Days, Birthday Party, Comic Book and Little Angel. The pack is now available for download from www.muvee.com/stylelabs.

    “We want to offer our users a richer experience and muvee quickSpin is the tool that helps us deliver that,” said Ajit Parab, Founder of eVideoShare.com. “quickSpin gives our client users a completely fuss-free way of spicing up their videos prior to uploading them online. It’s fun to use and the results are even more fun to watch again and again.”

    The eVideoShare client, which facilitates the uploading of large videos, is a smart java program that allows users to simultaneously upload multiple videos in the background from a PC. It can automatically upload each file to a user’s eVideoShare account online regardless of Internet connection speed. If a user has turned the PC off, the client keeps track of the upload process and will resume uploading when the PC is powered back on. The client program also automatically scans a user’s video and provides a series of frames to be selected as the thumbnail image that is shown online.

    Obtaining an account with eVideoShare is free and the quickSpin-enabled client is now available for download from www.evideoshare.com/muvee.

    December 1, 2005: muvee Launches autoProducer 5


    New features let users control photo motion, touch-up muvees, and batch save/burn productions to DVD


    Singapore and New York, NY–– December 01, 2005 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, has launched the latest version of its automatic video editing software, muvee autoProducer5. New features in this release give users more control over the pan/zoom motion that is applied to photos, make quick touch-ups and batch save/burn to DVD.

    “With the new features that we’ve added to muvee autoProducer 5, users have practically everything they need to turn their home video and photos into compelling productions that they can immediately enjoy and share in a more meaningful way – and they’ll never even having to think about editing video,” said Dr. Pete Kellock, muvee’s founder and CEO. He added, “Professional editing tools will always have a place in feature films and other narrative productions, but if you’re making a video that’s all about creating impact instead of telling a story – such as a vacation video, your kids at play, a birthday party, a fun wedding video – forget about video editing as you know it and try making a muvee instead.”

    magicSpot™ technology is a key new feature in muvee autoProducer 5 that enables users to control the pan/zoom motion that is applied to still pictures. The default ‘Automatic’ function applies motion based on the user’s chosen style, while the ‘Manual’ option presents users with two overlapping frames that they can move around to specify start and end points of motion, as well as resize to control zoom in/out points.

    Singapore and Ontario, CA — November 11, 2005 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and leader in Instant Personal Video, will offer Portable Media Expo attendees a sneak preview of the latest enhancements in muvee autoProducer 5. Slated to be released at the end of this month, muvee autoProducer 5 has new features for enhanced motion control over still pictures, and final tweaks for video, whilst retaining the software’s trademark easy-to-use interface.

Users have the option of letting the software intelligently select similar or contrasting replacement segments using ‘Auto-replace’. The ‘Manual Replace’ function lets users choose specific shots for substitution from the source material.

    ‘Find in source’ is a function that will also be demonstrated, which lets users locate specific shots in the source video while previewing a muvee.

    Elvin Low, muvee’s Director of Business Development for North America, said, “This latest version of autoProducer is a real powerhouse with the new magicSpot and tweak muvee features. muvee users consistently achieve professional-looking results in a fraction of the time that it would take using conventional video editing tools, and we’ve now added even more capability. The best part is that muvee software is still remarkably easy to use. We’re excited to be previewing our latest version at the Portable Media Expo, and reach out to even more people who can really use muvee to make their lives simpler.”

    Singapore –– October 27, 2005 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and global leader in Instant Personal Video, has launched its second mobile stylePack, featuring 5 popular party-themed styles for making quick, personalized music videos on various Nokia camera phone models.

    Using Nokia’s embedded Movie Director application, camera phone users can instantly and automatically turn their unedited phone video clips and pictures into stylish “muvees”, which can be shared on the phone itself or sent to others via a multimedia message (MMS). muvees typically feature highlights of a user’s video footage and pictures that are set to music, with style-determined effects and transitions synchronized to the beat. Users can also include a personalized text message into their muvees.

    Mikko Alanko, muvee’s sales manager for mobile products, said, “We’ve picked our best party styles and combined them into an all-in-one fun stylePack for Nokia camera phones that will really bring out the mood of people having a good time. So often, people take spontaneous video clips and pictures with their phones while they’re out with friends. These muveeStyles are a great way to capture the moment on the dance floor or at the bachelor party – and the best part is that they enable people to share the essence of these fun times with friends in a truly compelling way.”

    muveeStyles are unique, themed templates that allow Nokia camera phone users to instantly create compelling productions using video clips and pictures on their mobile phones. Each style has its own effects, transitions, graphics, music and editable text messages that can be applied to video and pictures in seconds to create a finished, stylized “muvee”. Multiple video clips and pictures can also be combined into a single montage.

    The 5 styles featured in the Party stylePack are Pina Colada, Beer O’clock, Ibiza, Carnival and Superstar . The Party stylePack is now available for PC download from www.muvee.com/mobile_stylepack at a 50% introductory offer of US$9.95. Once downloaded, the styles can be transferred from PC to phone via an infrared or Bluetooth connection. The Party stylePack works with Nokia’s embedded Movie Director application, which is available on the 7610, 3230, 6630, 6670, 6680, 6682, 6681, N70 and N90 models.

    August 30, 2005: Photo slideshows are a thing of the past with muvee’s new photoCentric stylePack



    Singapore and New York –– August 30, 2007 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and global leader in Instant Personal Video, has released its new photoCentric stylePack, which is optimized for making muvees out of digital stills. The photoCentric stylePack is a plug-in for muvee’s PC-based autoProducer software, and features 6 unique styles: Action!, Contemporary ‘50s, Sepia Flicker, Night Scenes, Motion Pix and Showcase.

    “Our new photoCentric stylePack is every shutterbug’s dream come true,” said muvee’s Style Director, Johann Annuar. “While our existing styles have already been doing a good job on photos, the effects and transitions in these new photoCentric styles are designed to bring out the best in your stills. Unlike other photo slideshow or video editing programs, our styles aren’t static templates that photos get slotted into. Rather, our stylizing effects are dynamically modified in response to the user’s chosen music so you can create something new simply by changing the music. These new styles are great for yearbook or vacation pictures, wedding photo montages, digital scrapbooks and more. They also work great on digital video footage as well.”

    Each muvee style has its own set of themed effects and transitions, which are intelligently applied to video highlights and pictures, and automatically synchronized to the tempo of the user’s chosen music. Users can instantly give their video and pictures a new look and feel by applying a different style.

    The plug-in photoCentric stylePack retails at US$19.95 and is now available for download from www.muvee.com/stylelabs .

    August 5, 2005: muvee Launches Weddings & Romance Edition for Event Videographers at WEVA Expo 2005


    Pioneering automatic video editing technology saves time and effort, significantly reducing project turnaround time


    Singapore and New York –– August 05, 2005 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and global leader in Instant Personal Video, will launch muvee autoProducer Weddings & Romance Edition at the Wedding and Event Videographers Association (WEVA) Expo 2005, which will be held at the Las Vegas Hilton from August 8-11. The Weddings & Romance Edition is a special software bundle that introduces muvee’s automatic video editing technology to professional event videographers. The bundle includes the latest version of the award-winning muvee autoProducer software, as well as more than 90 unique, romance-themed editing styles for wedding and other event videography.

    muvee autoProducer is the first software of its kind to deliver an intelligent, automatic and effective video production solution that caters to consumers and professional videographers alike. muvee’s patented technology enables users to automatically transform unedited video and pictures into compelling finished productions in just a few quick steps that take only minutes, even seconds. Users simply select their video and pictures, add in their own music, and apply a muvee editing style. Once the ‘Make muvee’ button is clicked, the software’s Artistic Intelligence™ analyzes the video to pick out key scenes, such as close-ups of human faces. Low-quality material such as over- or under-exposed footage is also discarded. The software also analyzes the music to determine its tempo and ‘emotional index’, before automatically stitching the selected footage highlights together, with style effects and transitions synchronized to the beat of the music used. Applying different styles for a different look and feel is instantaneous. The end result is a stylish, edited production that can be previewed in real time and saved in a variety of formats, including DV-AVI and MPEG-2 for DVD burning.

    Advanced features such as magicMoments give users added control over the content of the final production by allowing them to quickly include ‘must-have’ shots, such as the moment of the kiss, with a simple Thumbs-Up button. If the ex-girlfriend turned up amongst the wedding guests, quickly use the Thumbs-Down button to ensure that no close-ups of her face end up in the final cut.

    Terence Swee, muvee’s co-founder and Chief Opportunities Officer, said, ”muvee autoProducer is a breakthrough that helps the pros work smart and work fast, and it’s rapidly changing the world of professional wedding and event videography. autoProducer is a useful tool, even for those who work primarily with traditional non-linear video editing software, as it allows them to automate at least a portion of their work. Imagine being able to make a quick muvee of a wedding ceremony and show it to the bride and groom and their guests at the dinner reception on the very same day. With muvee, pro videographers can dramatically speed up the post-production process, shorten their project turnaround time and make more money. The software will pay for itself many times over the first time you use it.”

    muvee Technologies will be demonstrating its automatic video editing technologies at the WEVA Expo 2005, booths #903 and #905, at the Las Vegas Hilton from August 8-11. muvee autoProducer Weddings & Romance Edition retails at US$149.00 and will be available for purchase at the Expo, as well as at www.muvee.com/weddings . The Weddings & Romance Edition includes 97 editing styles, such as Timeless Romance , Golden Bands , and Wedding Dazzle . More than 100 additional plug-in styles, including professional styles, are also available for download from www.muvee.com/stylelabs .

    July 14, 2005: muvee Co-Founder is Among Distinguished Panelists at BlueSky Forum for Entrepreneurship


    muvee Styles for Symbian OS smartphones let camera-phone users create and share stylish, personalized mobile “muvees” out of their video and pictures


    Singapore and New York –– August 02, 2007 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and global leader in Instant Personal Video, is proud to announce that its co-founder, Terence Swee, will be a forum panelist at this year’s BlueSky Festival. Organized by the Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE) and its partner agencies, the Festival celebrates and showcases Singapore’s leading entrepreneurs.

    The highlight of the Festival is a plenary forum titled “Entrepreneurship in Singapore: Built to Last?” that is aimed at start-ups and small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs). Chaired by Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Singapore’s Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports and Second Minister for Trade and Industry, the forum gives Festival attendees the opportunity to engage in interactive dialog with the panelists to discuss issues such as the drivers for entrepreneurship, enterprise management, and the influence of the public sector in fostering entrepreneurship in Asia and the West. The forum will also touch on the Singapore experience thus far and explore the road ahead. Drawing from his experience as muvee’s Chief Opportunities Officer, Terence will share his insight on the strategic marketing and business development issues that start-up businesses face in the global playing field.

    Terence remarked, “I’m honored to be on this year’s panel and I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences at muvee with the group. In the 4 years since our incorporation in 2001, muvee has earned patents for our technologies and tripled revenues each year. From 8 people in a research lab, we’ve grown to over 60 spread across 3 offices at our headquarters at The Bencoolen. We’re doing business with key global players and we were profitable last year. It hasn’t always been easy, and we’re still facing new challenges every day, but when you hit the ground running with a great idea, you can imagine that the road we’re traveling is nothing short of exciting. We always have good stories to tell.”

    A born and bred local boy-next-door, Terence earned both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Engineering from the National University of Singapore (NUS), and contributes actively by speaking about his global business experiences at corporate seminars, local polytechnics and the NUS Enterpreneurship Centre. After completing his post-graduate research, Terence helped develop muvee’s award-winning muvee autoProducer software, and continues to play an instrumental role in negotiating multi-million dollar licensing deals with the top global players in every consumer electronic segment that muvee participates in. Earlier this year, he was awarded the IT Leader Awards’ Young IT Professional of the Year for 2005 by the Singapore Computer Society (SCS).

    June 23, 2005: Bringing Digital Media to Life in the Classroom with Instant Personal Video


    muvee autoProducer makes video production remarkably fast, easy and fun for teachers and students alike


    SAN FRANCISCO, Calif – August 3, 2009 — muvee, the pioneer and leader in home movie making software and services, today announced that anyone can now create and customize muvee Reveal styles for free through muvee’s open platform.

    Styles, the templates for muvee’s automatic video editing, define the way video is edited and processed to create a finished production automatically from raw video and images. By opening up the style architecture, muvee will allow users to create their own styles from scratch or modify any of muvee’s existing styles.

    “We’ve introduced this because over the years a lot of our users have asked ‘Can I create my own styles?’ The answer now is yes, you can,” says Dr. Pete Kellock, Co-Founder, muvee. “By opening up all our styles in this way, we’re doing three things: encouraging users to tweak and customize muvee’s styles, providing a large base of material for styles authors to draw upon in creating their own styles, and showing our commitment to making this an open platform for third-party style development. As far as I know, this is the first time there has been an open platform specifically designed for automatic editing and photo-movies.”

    muvee Reveal styles are authored in a scripting language called muSE, a simplified dialect of the Scheme programming language. This allows the style author to have comprehensive control over the look and feel of styles, as well as providing ways to control and leverage muvee’s automatic construction engine. Authors are able to customize the behavior of muvee’s music-responsive visual effects, leverage the unique intelligent summarization features that lie at the heart of muvee products, and add their own visual elements.

    muvee styles make use of industry-standard OpenGL graphics language, providing additional control to style authors. For example style authors can write or import their own shaders (short pieces of code that tell the graphics processor chip how to render objects in a scene).

    A comprehensive set of tutorials and information is available to guide any visitor through the process. To learn more about muvee Reveal style customization and creation, please visit: http://muvee-style-authoring.googlecode.com.

    June 7, 2005: muvee quickSpin Takes You From Zero To muvee Hero In A Snap



    Singapore –– June 07, 2005 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and global leader in Instant Personal Video, has launched its new zero-click automatic video production tool, muvee quickSpin. Offered as a free download, quickSpin takes fast, easy and fun muvee-making to the extreme, and adds in an element of surprise.

    Emarson Victoria, muvee’s VP of Product Strategy, said, “quickSpin epitomizes our concept of Instant Personal Video. We take video and pictures everywhere these days with our digital cameras and camera-phones, but most of the time this media sits untouched on our PCs because creating a meaningful production using traditional video editing tools is a daunting, time-consuming task for many. quickSpin introduces muvee’s revolutionary way of creating emotionally compelling productions out of your video and photos with virtually zero effort. It literally takes only seconds to make a muvee and email it to friends so users get instant gratification and are moved to share their productions.”

    Upon launch, muvee quickSpin’s intelligent media selection technology scans a user’s My Documents folder for video, pictures and music, and automatically creates a finished muvee for preview in a matter of seconds without any user intervention. quickSpin offers some basic preference settings that let users pick a different style and specify which media folders to use before automatically making their muvees. There are also more than 100 additional styles themed for various occasions that are available for download from muvee’s styleLabs at www.muvee.com/stylelabs.

    Mr Victoria added, “The key to making a production engaging is not so much about selecting the right bits, but rather how the video, pictures and music are put together with effects and transitions. This is a difficult task on its own and most folks cannot fathom how muvee is able to do this automatically until they actually make their first muvee. With quickSpin, anyone can be a video pro. We want to encourage more folks to try it, discover the ‘wow’ for themselves, and start making their lives simpler. And if they want to do more, they can always graduate to muvee autoProducer.”

    muvee quickSpin can be installed alongside muvee autoProducer, and is now available for download. quickSpin supports DV-AVI, MPEG-1 and WMV video input, and muvees can be saved in WMV format for emailing.

    June 1, 2005: Automatically Make Stylized muvees on Your Living Room TV Using a Remote Control


    muvee releases autoProducer unPlugged at Computex Taipei 2005


    Singapore and Taipei –– June 01, 2005 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and global leader in automatic video production, announces the release of muvee autoProducer unPlugged at Computex Taipei 2005. The application first made its debut as muvee autoProducer Media Center Edition last year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and has since been shipping with HP’s Media Center PCs. Computex 2005 marks the launch of the updated, standalone unPlugged application.

    Pete Kellock, muvee’s founder and CEO, said, “Hunching over your computer table and working with a mouse is just fine sometimes. But what about when you’re lounging in your favorite armchair? With muvee autoProducer unPlugged, you can sit back with your feet up and use a remote control to make muvees. unPlugged gives you the power of our standard muvee autoProducer product: the ability to transform your home video into professional-looking, finished productions in over 100 styles within minutes, even seconds. But now it’s even more fun, something you can do with family and friends gathered together around the TV.”

    Designed for the Windows® XP Media Center platform, muvee autoProducer unPlugged is the first and only application to introduce instant personal video into the living room, by letting users quickly and easily make muvees on a TV screen using just the familiar buttons of a remote control. unPlugged retains the core functions of muvee’s award-winning PC application, muvee autoProducer, but now presents them in an interactive, 10-foot Media Center-styled interface. Using the directional buttons of the remote control, users select their videos, pictures, music and an editing style, before hitting “make muvee”. In minutes, unPlugged intelligently analyzes the selected media, then automatically cuts video highlights to the music, with appropriately-styled effects and transitions synchronized to the beat, creating a finished production. muvees can be previewed in real time on the TV screen, or instantly remade in a different style.

    autoProducer unPlugged currently supports WMV and MPEG-2 video output formats for quick playback and DVD burning respectively. unPlugged retails at US$69.95 and is now available for download from www.muvee.com.

    March 7, 2005: muvee Co-Founder Named Young Professional of the Year at 2005 IT Leader Awards


    muveeStyles let you instantly transform video clips and pictures into entertaining and emotive productions right on your mobile phone


    Singapore –– March 07, 2005 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and global leader in automatic video production, is proud to announce that its co-founder, Terence Swee, is the IT Leader Awards’ Young Professional of the Year for 2005. The award was conferred at a gala dinner held in on March 5 at Singapore’s Swissotel, The Stamford. Launched in 1997 by the Singapore Computer Society (SCS), the IT Leader Awards encourages entrepreneurship and innovation by publicly recognizing outstanding contributions to, and achievement in, the field of technology.

    mDr. Pete Kellock, muvee’s founder and CEO, said, “This is a wonderful honor and we’re very proud of Terence. I’ve been working with him since our research days at Kent Ridge Digital Labs (now I2R). Terence’s boundless energy, technical knowledge, artistic talent and sheer drive never cease to amaze me. Start-ups are a team effort and we have many outstanding people in muvee, but a lot of what we’ve accomplished in the few years since we started muvee is the result of Terence’s extraordinary skill and determination.”

    Terence, who is muvee’s Chief Opportunities Officer, helped develop the award-winning muvee autoProducer, the world’s first automatic video editing software. Terence has been instrumental in putting muvee’s products on the world map, traveling relentlessly around the globe year-round promoting and negotiating multi-million dollar licensing deals with the number one players in every consumer electronic segment that muvee participates in. To date, muvee’s products have sold into 150 countries worldwide, and are bundled globally with major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) including Hewlett-Packard, Sony, Nikon and ATI. muvee was also the first to offer automatic movie-making for the mobile phone platform, and within a year has seen its technology embedded on 6 Nokia camera-phone models, two of which were recently unveiled at the 3GSM World Congress in mid-February. In the last year, muvee has also developed over 100 additional muveeStyles each for the PC and mobile phone platforms to complement its products in these areas.

    The company’s notable achievements recently prompted Singapore’s Senior Minister to highlight muvee Technologies as one of the “newer companies whose innovations are making waves in their respective industries” during his opening speech at the inaugural Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year World Summit 2005 held in Singapore in February.

    In the 3 years since the company’s incorporation in 2001, muvee has earned patents for its technologies and tripled revenues each year, achieving positive cash-flow and a full year of profit in 2004. muvee Technologies is now 43-strong at its headquarters in Singapore, and expects to grow to 50 staff by the end of 2005.

    Upon learning of his award, Terence said, “Starting a new company and going global with a new product is really a lifestyle, not a job! I am very fortunate to work with an absolutely talented and amazing team that I learn so much from every day. Being conferred this award is really a starting point for me and my company, and I really hope that what we’re doing can inspire other local companies to dream globally even when they are small, and just get out there and plant their flags as we did. There is still much to achieve, but I am very positive going forward, as we have a great team behind this enterprise.”

    March 3, 2005: muveeStyles On More Camera-Phones â


    muveeStyles let you instantly transform video clips and pictures into entertaining and emotive productions right on your mobile phone


    Singapore –– March 03, 2005 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and leader in automatic video production, has, to date, released more than 100 new muveeStyles for the mobile phone platform, which can be downloaded directly onto compatible Nokia camera-phones from w3.muvee.com/mobile. muveeStyles let mobile phone users get creative with the video clips and pictures that they shoot on their camera-phones, by allowing them to instantly style their media into fun “muvees” right on the phone itself, and share them as multimedia messages (MMS).

    muveeStyles are unique, themed templates for creating video messages on camera-phones, and each has its own effects, transitions, graphics, music and editable text messages that can be applied to video and pictures in seconds to create a finished, stylized “muvee”. Multiple video clips and pictures can also be combined into a single montage. muvee video messages are saved in 3gpp format, typically smaller than 100KB in size, ready for sending via MMS.

    muveeStyles work with Nokia’s Movie Director application, and are currently available on Nokia’s 7610, 3230, 6630, 6670, 6680 and 6681 models, the latter two of which were recently launched at the 3GSM World Congress in mid-February. Each of these phone models includes between 5 and 10 unique, embedded muveeStyles.

    Dr. Pete Kellock, founder and CEO of muvee Technologies said, “muvee’s concept is simple: instantly shoot, style and send. Within seconds, the user has a cool, finished muvee they can show off to friends, and it’s something the recipients will absolutely enjoy watching. Our technology allows users to spice up their media by transforming video and pictures into compelling content. It’s incredibly fast, easy and loads of fun, and it motivates users to send little memoirs of where they are or what they’re doing, whenever they want! muveeStyles open up a whole new way for people to convey a range of emotions, thoughts and feelings using their mobile phones, as seen by the popularity of our In Love style on Valentine’s Day.”

    Users can now download muveeStyles directly to their phones from www.muvee.com/mobile, as well as through leading mobile download portals Handango.com, and Iguanamobile.com. muveeStyle downloads are priced from US$3.00 each, and some of the fun and nifty styles available include Quirky Moves, In Love, Postcard, My Showtime and Pure Adrenalin.

    In Love, for example, adds graphics of hearts, wine glasses and a full moon set to romantic piano music. Postcard is another popular download that sets the scene for travel and discovery.

    Dr. Kellock added, “The availability of muveeStyles on even more camera-phones now puts messaging creativity into the hands of millions more users, allowing them to communicate in a fun and entertaining way. It’s like playing dress-up with your video and pictures!”

    A March 2004 study released by InfoTrends Research Group projected that worldwide unit sales of camera-phones would reach nearly 150 million in 2004, or just over a quarter of all mobile phone sales.

    December 30, 2004: Automatic Movie-Making Packs More Features and Greater Control with the Launch of the All-New muvee autoProducer 4 at CES


    Experience the quickest and easiest way to make a cool video that people will enjoy watching


    Singapore and Las Vegas, NV –– December 30, 2004 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and leader in automatic video production, is proud to officially launch muvee autoProducer 4 at International CES 2005. Featuring a revamped user interface for better workflow, improved automatic editing capabilities and a host of powerful new features, muvee autoProducer 4 ups the ante once again by delivering enhanced user control and unparalleled automatic video production technology that is remarkably fast, easy and fun.

    magicMoments™ technology, which was first introduced in the previous version of the software, is now emphasized as a key aspect of muvee autoProducer 4. magicMoments is an innovative feature that complements muvee’s automatic editing capabilities by enabling users to quickly pre-select their most important scenes for inclusion using a simple Thumbs-Up button if they choose to do so. Unwanted shots can similarly be excluded with a Thumbs-Down button.

    Dr. Pete Kellock, muvee’s founder and CEO, said, “magicMoments combines automatic editing with the ability to pick favorite moments in a revolutionary new way, and is just one of muvee’s unique, distinguishing features. We also offer more than 100 downloadable editing styles that are creatively themed for all sorts of occasions so that our users can give their videos impact and emotion, and create home videos that are great to watch over and over again.”

    muvee autoProducer 4 now supports DivX, Windows Media, QuickTime and MPEG-4 video inputs, in addition to AVI, MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 formats. Other new features include support for USB webcam and video capture, integrated DVD/VCD authoring, a video snapshot tool, more photo-centric effects and transitions, picture interleaving, style groupings, file drag-and-drop, and improved title and credit sequences, among others. More advanced production settings also allow users to specify the duration of each muvee, or to optimize it to fit either the selected video and pictures, or the music.

    Dr. Kellock added, “Ever since we first introduced muvee autoProducer in 2001, automatic video editing has become a must-have offering in several video editing programs, and this is a great testament to what we’re doing. But muvee’s solution is much more radical: automatic editing is at the very heart of our revolutionary approach to video production. We’ve now capitalized on our expertise in this field to make version 4 even better for our users by giving them more functionality and control. Using muvee is like having an expert video editor in your computer doing the hard work for you – in fact, quite a few of our users are professional video editors, although I’m not sure if they all tell their clients that they’re using muvee! I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved in this latest release and anticipate more exciting developments down the road.”

    The award-winning muvee autoProducer software is the first in the world to deliver an intelligent, automatic and effective video production solution that caters to the needs of the majority of home movie-makers. muvee lets even the most novice user instantly transform unedited video and pictures into compelling, professional-looking “muvees” – completely automatically in just a few quick steps that take only minutes, even seconds. Users simply select their video and pictures, add in their favorite music, and apply a production style. muvee’s Artistic Intelligence™ then analyzes the video, pictures and music to select the best footage highlights and determine the tempo and mood of the music, before automatically splicing everything together with style effects and transitions synchronized to the beat. The end result is a stylish production that can be saved and shared with family and friends in many popular formats.

    muvee autoProducer 4 (currently for Windows® XP only) is now available online at www.muvee.com for US$69.95.

    muvee Technologies’ founders, Pete Kellock and Terence Swee, will be demonstrating muvee autoProducer 4 at CES in Las Vegas from January 6 – 9, 2005 (by scheduled appointment). muvee will also be meeting the press during Lunch @Piero’s and at ShowStoppers.

    June 21, 2004: muvee Brings Instant Personal Video to the Mobile Phone with muveeStyles, Letting Users Create and Send Fun, Styled Video Messages For Any Occasion


    muvee’s revolutionary technology lets cameraphone users automatically transform raw video clips into unique, compelling, styled productions that can be shared via MMS


    Singapore –– August 10, 2004 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer in automatic video production, today announced that it has officially launched its new muveeStyles for the mobile phone platform at www.muvee.com/mobile. For the very first time, muvee’s patented technology lets users get creative with the video clips they shoot on their mobile cameraphones, by allowing them to transform their video quickly and easily into fun “muvee” video messages right on the phone itself.

    muveeStyles are themed templates for creating video messages on a mobile phone, and each unique style contains its own effects, transitions, graphics, music and editable text messages that are applied to video in seconds to give a finished, stylized “muvee”. Multiple video clips can also be combined into a single montage. muvees can be saved as video files in standard 3gpp format ready for viewing on the cameraphone itself, or for sending to other mobile devices as a multimedia message.

    Dr. Pete Kellock, founder and CEO of muvee Technologies said, “The launch of our new muveeStyles for the mobile phone is a technological first, and another significant breakthrough for us after our pioneering success with automatic video production for the PC platform. We’re now making instant personal video available to an even greater audience by putting our technology on the increasingly ubiquitous mobile cameraphone, which people are already using everywhere to capture and share pictures and video. We’re enabling users to spice up their raw video by turning them into stylish, compelling video messages that are automatically cut to music. Within seconds, the user has a cool, finished muvee which they’ll enjoy sending to friends, and which the recipients will truly enjoy watching. It’s incredibly fast, easy and loads of fun. We’re very excited about the potential of this development, which is opening up a whole new means of expression for cameraphone users.”

    In a recent report, market analysts ARC Group predicted that users of mobile video services would grow from 5.1 million in 2003 to around 205 million worldwide by 2008. The Group also predicted that revenue from overall mobile video services would grow from an estimated US$189.9 million in 2003 to around US$5.5 billion by 2008, with almost a third coming from video (see Note #1 below). In-Stat/MDR has also reported that by 2009, 22.3 million Americans will be viewers of mobile video content, and 31.1 million will use video messaging services. In-Stat/MDR expects mobile video services to generate $5.4 billion in annual revenues by 2009 (see Note #2 below).

    Dr. Kellock added, “We’ve got hundreds of muveeStyles in the pipeline, which we’re creating for birthdays, romance, parties, vacations and much more. Imagine being able to convey the mood of your vacation simply by using a style such as Jet Set to transform the video you just shot into a finished muvee and send it to friends via MMS… right from your beachfront deck chair. It’s a whole new way of messaging.”

    muveeStyles are currently compatible with the Nokia 7610 phone, and available styles include Call Me, Marrakech, Virtual Me, Party On and Ibiza. These and other styles can be previewed and downloaded from www.muvee.com/mobile, and each style costs US$3.00.

    January 7, 2004: muvee Technologies’ Automatic Video Production Software Adopted by Sony’s Digital Imaging Devices


    muvee’s pioneering technology will dramatically simplify creative photo and video production for millions of consumers.


    CES, Las Vegas, Nevada –– January 07, 2004 – muvee Technologies, the leader in automatic video production, announced today that muvee autoProducer has been selected for bundling with Sony’s latest camcorder models. This user-friendly photo and video editing suite features innovative technology that enables anyone to automatically and easily create compelling productions from their digital media up to 1,000 times faster than by conventional manual operation.

    muvee is thrilled at this opportunity to help even more consumers quickly and easily produce professional-looking, rich media in a fun way,” said Dr. Pete Kellock, Founder and CEO of muvee Technologies. “When muvee first introduced the concept of automatic video production more than two years ago, we created a whole new playing field for consumer electronics and multimedia to come together. I believe Sony’s decision will further extend our leadership in this area.”

    With muvee autoProducer, users simply add in their photos and/or video, choose some music, and apply a creative editing style from the program’s built-in list. In minutes, the software’s Artistic Intelligence automatically analyzes the media for key scenes, before producing a finished “muvee” of the best video and photo highlights that are cut to the music, with style effects synchronized to the beat. The application’s editing styles are central to the program’s ease of use, and each one has unique effects, transitions and other characteristics that lend a particular look and feel to a production. The “Over the top Music Video” style, for example, makes a slick, fast-cut music video, while the “Classic Sepia” style recreates the effect of silent 1920s movies in a sepia tone, complete with projector twitches and scratchy film effects.

    Dr, Kellock added, “The most exciting thing about our software is its dynamic nature. As people take more pictures and video, they want ever more creative variety. muvee addresses this with plug-in styles that users can buy online. In the last 2 months alone, we created and released 14 new styles. We expect to release over 100 new styles in 2004 created along themes such as children’s birthday parties, weddings, Christmas and Valentine’s Day – anything you can think of!”

    April 3, 2002: muvee Technologies launches muvee autoProducer Cobalt


    Breakthrough product for camcorder users’ automatic video editing


    Singapore –– April 03 , 2002 – muvee Technologies announces the launch of its new ‘muvee autoProducer Cobalt’ product for the PC. The software is the result of technology innovations which enable the world’s first smart automatic video editing software. The software is targeted at the 95% of camcorder owners who shoot video but do not have the time or inclination to tackle conventional editing tools.

    Pete Kellock, CEO of muvee Technologies said “In the past, people had to tackle complex editing tools and learn the tedious process of editing before they could get decent results. Not any more. muvee autoProducer is breakthrough software which enables them to go from raw video to a finished production in minutes, even seconds in some cases. It is completely automatic – the user simply supplies the raw video, picks any music they like and selects one of our built-in styles. Our software analyzes the video material and music and arrives at a set of “edit decisions” which create the finished production, complete with transitions and special effects, all tightly synchronized to the pace and rhythm of the music. It’s like having an experienced video editor sitting inside your PC”.

    Pete Kellock explained “We’re pioneering this new field – automated video editing. It’s a totally new approach which provides great results in a fraction of the time required for editing manually. It transforms raw video which no-one is likely to watch into stylish, professional, emotionally-charged productions in a few moments. And the program is so simple it takes just a few minutes to learn – our tutorial is one minute long”.

    The software can use DV, AVI and MPEG-1 input video files and MP3 and WAV files for any music selected. It includes a choice of 24 production styles and the ability to mix in music or retain automatic mixing of the original video soundtrack. The software also allows the user to personalize the muvee productions with titles and credits. The muvee productions can be output in a range of formats such as MPEG-1 (for making VCD’s), ASF (for video emailing), AVI (for high-quality playback) or DV (for recording back to the camcorder).

    muvee autoProducer uses patent-pending analysis techniques. The video is analyzed for characteristics such as shot boundaries, low-quality material, the presence of human faces and the direction and amount of motion,. Selected music is analyzed for tempo, rhythm, cutting beats and overall energy/drive. The software uses this extracted information to decide how to edit the video.

    The software runs on the Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, ME and XP platforms. It is available now, priced $ 69.95. More details can be found at www.muvee.com

    muvee Technologies CEO, Pete Kellock added: “People are used to pointing a camcorder and getting superb results immediately. They want video editing which is just as quick and easy so that they can share that video magic with family, friends and colleagues in a form which the viewers are going to enjoy and which is going to impress them. muvee autoProducer does that. It’s radically faster than using any other video editing software – a thousand times faster in some cases. Plus there’s no learning curve to speak of… and it’s a lot more fun!“

This analysis is used to make smart automatic edit decisions about the most appropriate selection of material, cutting points, video transitions and special effects for each muvee production. The analysis of material is carried out faster than real time. After the first production, subsequent productions can be made in just a few seconds, providing instant gratification to the user, and inviting experimentation.

Our product is the result of several years of intensive R&D and we believe that it will unlock new mass markets for casual video production. For the first time, the vast majority of camcorder users who don’t have the time or patience to edit have a piece of software to do the job, and the program can be mastered in a few minutes. With muvee autoProducer they can put together quality productions which they can email to friends, post on the web or turn into Video Compact Disks to use with a DVD player.

    muvee autoProducer is available now as a free download from www.muvee.com. It is fully working and has no time-out or other restrictions. It includes camera capture and saving to a range of formats including ASF, AVI, DV and MPEG-1.

They want video editing which is just as quick and easy. muvee autoProducer does that, allowing you to make productions 10-100 times faster than traditional video editing software.
