ZyGoVideo™ Pro and HipFlics™ 1.1 Add Bundles for Mac OS & Windows

San Diego, CA ­- January 7, 2002

Bundle of ZyGoVideo™ Pro and HipFlics™ 1.1 for OS/X The Bundle of ZyGoVideo™ Pro and HipFlics™ 1.1 for OS/X has been extended to cover both tools running under Mac OS and Windows. The new bundles will be made available in time for QuickTime Live. The expansion of the OS/X bundle follows a successful Holiday introduction to users needing a quick and easy tool set to create web content for QuickTime 5. The ZyGoVideo Pro codec line has just been upgraded to Version 1.2; a version which allows for both faster compression and playback speeds.

Rod Sheffield, President and CEO of Media Metastasis said: "We are pleased to extend our bundle aimed at the majority of QuickTime video creators. Both HipFlics and ZyGoVideo Pro provide the ability to create web content quickly and easily, and at a price the masses can afford. Of course, we are continuing to provide the best deals possible to those folks compressing with Apple equipment under QuickTime. To that end, we have a special bundle that includes both our Mac OS and OS/X Pro codecs for one low price."

ZyGoVideo Pro is available as a QuickTime 5 Downloadable Component. QuickTime 5's Movie Player will automatically load the codec and begin playing the video on the receiver's computer and with a million downloads of QuickTime 5 taking place every 3 days ( it's a safe bet that your friends and family have QuickTime. ZyGoVideo's Pro line is meant to achieve great looking video at low data rates with a minimum of settings so that the compression job is fast and easy to do.

"With a timeline interface and drag and drop functionality HipFlics is the easiest to use QuickTime compression application on the market. It provides any video editor with the ability to produce great looking video. We were the first QuickTime compression software to be made available on OS X and now we're pleased to extend our bundling agreement to include Windows and OS 9 users." Said David Gratton, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Totally Hip Software.

Video editors can use HipFlics 1.1's simple drag and drop interface and timeline-based controls to process almost any digital video with ease. Professional features like multiple codec application, cropping, watermarking, and filter application enable users to quickly produce great video that is ready for the web or CD-ROM.
