Sep 15, 2011, 10:00 ET from ArcSoft, Inc.

FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ArcSoft, Inc., an industry leading software provider of multimedia technologies and applications across desktop, mobile and embedded platforms, today announced that the company will demonstrate an Intel® Wireless Display (Intel ® WiDi) compatible version of the recently released ShowBiz 5 movie making and sharing application at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2011 in San Francisco.

The primary benefit of Intel WiDi for ShowBiz 5 users is the preview window within the software can be shared to an external display wirelessly, allowing the users to see how their movie will look on the big screen without first having to create a DVD, Blu-ray Disc, or hassle with connecting the PC to the TV.  Users will simply need to have a compatible Windows® 7 laptop, a compatible wireless adapter for their TV (connect to TV via HDMI or Composite A/V inputs), and the free Intel WiDi widget installed on the laptop.  Additionally, the Intel WiDi compatible version of ShowBiz 5 will need to be installed. Availability of this version will be announced shortly and it will be a free update for current ShowBiz 5 users.

"The Intel® WiDi Extensions SDK provided a clearly documented and easy to integrate solution for our developers to incorporate Intel WiDi into our applications such as ShowBiz 5," said George Tang, VP and GM of ArcSoft's Video and Home Entertainment Group.  "The result is a much more enjoyable preview experience for consumers when making videos of their vacation, family, holidays, events, and so on."
