Magix has announced the MAGIX Movies2go software, allowing for easy transfer of videos and slideshows to mobile devices, including portable video players (such as PlayStation Portables PSP and iPods), mobile phones, PDAs, and laptops.
MAGIX Movies2go is a solution for anyone that wants to create their own mobile entertainment center. The software allows users to watch videos and TV shows anywhere. Movies2go lets users transfer and convert videos and slideshows in just a few steps into MPEG4, 3GP, and many other formats compatible with video playback devices or laptops.
The software provides direct access to the new MAGIX Online Video Service (www.magix-movies.com). The Magix video site allows users to download a continually updated selection of over 300 free family-friendly videos, including non-copyrighted movies, classics, silent films, documentaries, and fun video clips.
Movies2go also works like a digital video recorder (DVR). It allows recording of TV shows from the current TV schedule, edit them, and remove commercials. In addition, any video, including TV shows, home movies, and Hollywood movies can be edited, shortened, and saved for use on a mobile device.
Priced at US$29.99, MAGIX Movies2go will be available in retail stores and online starting on 31 May 2006.
