San Francisco (PRWEB) January 12, 2006
GroupSmarts has unveiled at Macworld San Francisco MemoryMiner, a new desktop application for Mac OS X (version 10.3 and higher) that enables users to link pictures, audio, video and other media to create meaningful and compelling digital stories. MemoryMiner's interface captures moments in place and time, creating delightful digital journeys through personal and family histories.
MemoryMiner makes it possible to:
-- Create -- Unlimited attachments of audio, video, documents, URLs and other annotations to any photo, turning records into multi-dimensional and limitless sensory narratives. Storyboards, documentaries, slideshows and scrapbooks that link people, places and time periods become powerful, transformative tools of exploration and rediscovery of one's personal history.
-- Link -- Visual search filters locate photos of individuals, groups of people and locations in seconds, while also allowing for the grouping and identification of specific life periods and events.
-- Explore -- Projection maps can be downloaded to plot and track the location of an individual at any given time in his or her personal history. Markers can then be plotted on a projection map, enabling users to explore the intersections of peoples' lives across the globe.
"We are excited to be launching MemoryMiner after more than a year of hard work and challenges," said John Fox, CEO of GroupSmarts. "Here is a technology that is paving the way toward a marketplace that's at once truly global yet intimately personal. MemoryMiner is enabling people to exchange media elements in entirely new and captivating ways, while furthering our goal of building the world's largest Digital People's History Network."
MemoryMiner works seamlessly with numerous desktop applications such as iMovie and iPhoto. The program will be available for download at http://www.memoryminer.com, with time-limited introductory price of $45.
