Cyberlink has announced MediaStory, a touch-optimized application that turns photo and video collections into video stories that can be saved or shared to Facebook and YouTube.
"We all have growing collections of photos and videos that we share with our friends and family, but not all of us have the time or the know-how to turn them into compelling stories." said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "MediaStory not only helps people to group and filter
their photo and video collections in a meaningful way, but also to create professional-looking stories without the complexity and expense that comes with traditional editing tools."
MediaStory uses metadata, geo-tags and information from Google and Outlook calendars to automatically arrange media transferred from cameras, phones, Facebook or storage devices into groups. Users can browse their photos and videos by event, date/time, who’s in them, location they were taken, or by self-assigned folder name. Unique filtering options make selecting which media to include in a video story quick and intuitive.
MediaStory will be available for purchase later this year but as a special worldwide promotion, the software will be provided free to customers who purchase an Intel Ultrabook or all-in-one PC powered by 4th gen Intel Core processors. Buyers will be given a code that can be used to download MediaStory from the CyberLink website
