During CeBIT we had a chance to get a glimpse of what Cyberlink's new MediaShow is going to look like. Previously, we had a chance to play around with Cyberlink's MediaShow 3, and we can easily say that the new MediaShow 4 looks and does far better.
For those that aren't familiar with Cyberlink's MediaShow, this software is for user generated pictures and videos. In short, you can capture, manage, edit, enhance, burn, publish and share both video and photo content. The most important thing is that these are very intuitive and easy, even for beginners.
At CeBIT we were able to see a MediaShow animated tiled slideshow, which does a slideshow to the rhythm of music. It looks great and different from a usual, boring slideshow. As for the sharing options, Cyberlink has included direct online publishing of videos and slideshows directly to YouTube and Flickr, as well as the usual direct emailing and photo printing.
Technical specifications include video format support for DV-AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, DVR-MS, WMV, and export to MPEG-2 and WMV. As for image format support, you can do BMP, JPEG and PNG, or in short, the most usual ones.
The most important is the interactive 3D animated interface which looks great, and feels very intuitive. Cyberlink is definitely doing a great job and keeps getting better and better with its software.
