Palo Alto, Calif. May 23, 2005 - Today Kinoma, Inc. enhanced their award winning Kinoma Producer 3 software by adding high quality video encoding for Sony’s popular PlayStation Portable (PSP). Getting video onto a PSP has never been easier – simply select the video files and desired quality level and Kinoma Producer 3 goes to work, transforming the video into a high quality PSP compatible format. The video is then copied to a Memory Stick Duo, ready for immediate playback on PSP. For quick browsing on the PSP, Kinoma Producer 3 automatically creates a thumbnail image for each video clip.

Kinoma Producer 3 is designed for people who don’t want to waste their time becoming video compression experts. With an easy to understand interface and carefully selected video encoding presets, Kinoma Producer 3 takes the guesswork out of transferring video to the PSP.
