With this Certified for Windows Vista software, consumers who are new to creating videos and experienced users who want to save time can choose from a wide range of easy-to-use tools to edit video and author discs. They can also use wizards to create exciting videos and slideshows automatically. Users can share movies everywhere - whether they are using an iPod® or the latest high-definition home theater systems.
"The previous version of our software, Ulead VideoStudio 10, was the industry's first video editing software package to be Certified for Windows Vista," said Blaine Mathieu, Vice President and General Manager, Products and Strategy, Digital Media at Corel. "Continuing this outstanding support of Microsoft's new operating system, we have ensured that consumers and OEMs can be confident that VideoStudio 11 will maintain its lead as a premier choice in video editing/authoring, and that all of the powerful new features that were added to this latest release will deliver the same performance and unmatched ease of use they have come to expect from this impressive offering."

"This highlights Corel's commitment to providing its customers with higher-quality applications that deliver a more secure, reliable and compatible experience with Windows Vista."
New features in Ulead VideoStudio 11 include support for AVCHD editing, enhanced DV-to-DVD Wizard and Movie Wizard features, more title/subtitle and overlay tools, and a host of quick-fix solutions for common video problems, including automatic color/tone correction. With Ulead VideoStudio 11 Plus, consumers also have a complete, end-to-end solution for capturing, editing, authoring and burning HD DVD videos.
