A New Music Software Manager And Player Dedicated To Classical, Jazz Or Other More Demanding Genre Of Music Is Now Available

MusiCHI Suite is the first integrated computer software application to manage your music files, completely dedicated to classical, jazz or other more demanding genre of music. It is the only digital music suite where the user can actually play and organize his music in an intelligent way, allowing him to change the order and number of columns on the screen and find his tracks in the most flexible manner. MusiCHI Suite includes 4 applications (Player, Ripper, Tagger, Library Manager), each optimized for their task, where newly introduced fields, such as Instruments, Composition, Period, Performers, Style, relevant to music classification can be utilized. Unlike other programs, in theMusiCHI Suite any field, any data, you see on screen is written inside the audio files , therefore, reducing the importance of the library, which becomes just the temporarily catalog of the files’ metadata, used only for fast and flexible searches. Bringing back the focus to the music files themselves and freeing you from any proprietary software library database.

Furthermore, we use a database engine that allows virtually unlimited size of libraries. MusiCHI Suite is a multi – library system , allowing for one more level of grouping, for example Classical, Jazz, World Music, etc. According to the library, the user interface, audio tracks data and tagging pick lists can change, since different styles of music have different logic and personalities: with classical music Composer/Composition is more valuable information than Artist/Album, for example.

The Suite is equipped with a complete reference database (MusiCHI Clean ©®) for classical music, where more than 5000 entries (composers, performers, orchestras, etc.) have been properly corrected and normalized with full respect of their local spelling (umlaut, accents etc.), i.e. the program is fully Unicode compliant. Furthermore, it has a composition engine search covering for the moment the integrated music collection of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Vivaldi. The composition engine search will soon be completed with the compositions of other famous composers.

MusiCHI Suite Version 2.1 comes with step by step tutorials and help files leading the user to learn the program and its powerful features quickly and easily. In Version 2.1, new capabilities have been added such as the possibility to play music files without them being part of a music library, the possibility to see the album/compositions covers in a graphical carousel view, the possibility to change the fonts sizes so that the user can play with the software remotely from his couch, the possibility to extract the content of the music library for printing via a spreadsheet. Furthermore, the player can read directly the CD booklet (in pdf format) with a single click, can browse any relevant internet pages linked to a track (Wikipedia etc.), potentially transforming the application to be a front-end to a music knowledge based system. Via the Windows clipboard, the Ripper can use, for its metadata, pretty much any source coming from the WEB or other documents. The playlists are now compatible with the m3u and m3u8 formats. In order to explore the numerous capabilities of the software, you can download from http://www.musichi.eu/index.php/en/downloaddemo, the free trial version (the full featured program with a limited activation time). We have also, included a demo librarywith prepared musical clips (courtesy of Hyperion Records), that can show how classical music can be tagged, “the MusiCHI way”. With these files you can experiment with the other tools of the Suite, especially our tag editor that is considered undoubtedly one of the best (if not the best) of its kind.

MusiCHI Suite Version 2.1 can play FLAC files up to 24 bits/ 385.2 KHZ, and offers additional support for MP3, MP4, APE, WMA and M4A. As we do not offer volume adjustment within the player, we do not add any digital distortion. MusiCHI Suite is ASIO Drivers compatible, including ASIO4ALL, allowing to by-pass the video sound mixer of Windows and achieving bit perfect digital output (we have passed bit transparency tests with a Weiss DAC202). MusiCHI Suite is designed to run on Microsoft Windows (XP, Vista or 7).

MusiCHI Suite is available in 3 versions: MusiCHI Studio (launching price 39 euros, approx. 54 US$) which includes the 4 applications (Player, Ripper, Tagger, Library Manager), MusiCHI Portable (launching price 19 euros, approx. 26 US$) a unique application that allows the user to transport and play all his digital music library on any other PC without any further configuration than plug a USB drive and MusiCHI Ultimo(launching price 49 euros, approx. 68 US$) which apart from the 4 applications, includes also the Portable Edition.

Different from other file format, the open standard multimedia container format Maroska (MKV) can store multiple video/audio tracks with all meta-information and preserve chapters and thus is widely supported by HD media players and portable devices.

By copying and packaging Blu-ray Disc/DVD streams into MKV file format, Pavtube ByteCopy lets users get all video clips, audio streams and subtitles in one MKV file.

In addition, Pavtube ByteCopy can transcode video stream, audio track and subtitle stream separately for user’s convenience. Lossless video quality can be retained when TrueHD/DTS-MA audio is down converted to Dolby Digital 5.1/DTS 5.1 audio. This ensures proper playback of Blu-ray contents on earlier devices that do not support 7.1 channels.

MIND MEDIA Cooperates With Ubisoft To Develop Biofeedback Sensor Technology For Stress Reduction Games

Mind Media BV, the world number one in medical biofeedback and neurofeedback technology has today announced its cooperation with Ubisoft, a world leader in computer games. On June 14th, Ubisoft announced Innergy, a unique wellness game, at the E3 in Los Angeles, which will be available to players on the PC and Mac® in early 2011. The game uses the new Innergy Sensor, which is based on technology from the Mind Media NeXus-10 series of physiological monitoring and feedback systems.

MIND MEDIA Cooperates With Ubisoft To Develop Biofeedback Sensor Technology For Stress Reduction Games

The Innergy sensor measures heart rate, HRV, blood flow and pulse and provides real time biofeedback to the player showing how their body and nervous system responds to breathing exercises. This interactive and playful game increases cardiac coherence and relaxation and decreases levels of stress. In short, playing computer games can increase your health, wellness and inner balance. The Innergy computer game is extremely easy to use and has opened new dimensions for life science based “edutainment”.

Mr. Erwin Hartsuiker, CEO of Mind Media BV, explained: “When we introduced computer based NeuroBiofeedback training in 1992, almost nobody knew or understood what it was. Our vision remains that medical or neurophysiological equipment can be used for more than monitoring “disease”. Our NeXus Biofeedback and Neurofeedback systems enable researchers to study the interaction of mind and body and how thought and emotion affect our state of health, wellness and performance. In other words we can monitor the physiological effects of cognitive functioning, behaviour and stress.

Clinicians, psychologists and therapists use the NeXus systems for Biofeedback training to reduce tension headaches, migraine, stress related problems like high blood pressure, hyperventilation, anxiety and even early stages of depression. NeXus can also help with ADHD and learning disabilities as well as enhancing performance in sports and business. We see a clear trend in the market where people now think twice before they automatically reach for medication or pills as their first solution.

We are honoured that Ubisoft has chosen to cooperate with Mind Media in the development of this new and exciting Innergy Sensor technology. We think this will change the way people play computer games.

The Photobook Company Is A New Website Launched By Leading London Digital Agency Cyber-Duck

The website allows users across the UK to create personalised albums which they design themselves.

thephotobookcompany

By downloading the exclusive state-of-the-art photobook design software from The Photobook Company website completely free of charge, users can design their own album or choose from various pre-designate page templates which they can customise. The software enables users to upload their high-quality digital photographs from their computer into the album.

The software has an impressive array of tools to make it easier than ever for users to design their own wedding albums, by editing the background colours, images or captions with stunning scrapbook effects. Additionally, users can change the transparency of photographs (for faded backgrounds or blending photographs), resize photographs, layer images and easily alter the colours of the photographs (by adding classic sepia or black & white effects). The software is easy to use, meaning anybody can design their own photobook album in minutes.

There are tutorials and videos on The Photobook Company’s website to guide users through the process from basic editing such as simply resizing a photo to more advanced editing processes such as adding effects to photographs.

The user is given the choice between having a landscape or portrait option with the photobook and two different cover options; leather embossed or photographic picture. The leather embossed cover option looks timeless and classy, and the photographic cover makes the custom album look contemporary and luxurious.

Once the user is happy with their album or photobook they can then order it online via The Photobook Company’s website. The Photobook Company then handmake and professionally print the photobook album based on the custom design. The albums are printed on matt photographic paper which covers the entire double page spread (known as flush mounted) for a better quality and also enabling customers to have full panoramic images from edge to edge of the album.

All books / albums produced by the Photobook Company are handmade by their skilled and experienced bookbinders. The quality of the books and printing is manually checked and approved before they are sent out to ensure that customers receive a superior quality album that they will cherish forever. This includes colour correction and sharpening our customers images individually so that the image quality is optimised throughout the photobook. Many of The Photobook Company’s competitors simply do not show this level of dedication to quality.

The website also makes it incredibly easy to order duplicate albums for relatives, friends and family including smaller versions of the main photobook album, as well as offering the opportunity to order ‘thank you’ cards based on the photobook design for guests.

To find out more about The Photobook Company and to test the unique photobook designing software for free please visit http://www.thephotobookcompany.co.uk. Also on the website watch preview videos to learn more about the many exciting features available in the photobook software.

About Xara
Xara has been developing computer software since 1981, the early Microcomputer era. It has focused mostly on publishing related software products, starting f r o m Wordwise, a hugely popular Word Processor in the ’80s, to desktop publishing software (Impression) and graphics products in the ’90s for the Acorn RISC computer. Xara’s first Windows product, Xara Studio, was quickly snapped up and marketed by Corel in the late ’90s as CorelXara. The rights were acquired back f r o m Corel and it has since evolved into Xara X and the most recent Xara Xtreme. Xara has a particularly strong technology and innovation history. It pioneered many of the graphics technologies and techniques used by the industry today. It was the first to introduce vector anti-aliasing, the first with vector transparency and graduated transparency and the first with vector feathering. Many of its User Interface techniques have been adopted by the industry. The graphics engine that is at the core of Xara Xtreme still remains the world’s most powerful. In January, 2007, Xara Ltd was acquired by Magix AG f r o m Berlin, Germany. The company now operates as a wholly owned subsidiary.
