Roxio has launched MyDVD 10 Premier, a video editing and DVD creation suite designed for consumers who want to edit home movies, create slideshows and provide video compilations to view on widescreen TVs, share online and enjoy on a variety of portable devices.

The Vista-certified application claims to make it easy for consumers to quickly turn photos and home videos into professional-quality DVD productions.

It offers editing flexibility, batch video segment removal, timeline markers and tools that automatically correct colour and remove background noise.

In addition, users can add sound tracks with "SmartSound" that provides a variety of built-in sound tracks to suit any mood.

The new Picture-in-Picture feature enables real-time video overlays creating "extraordinary" TV-like effects.

Other features include "Mobile Phone Doctor" that corrects problems common to photos taken with mobile phone cameras, while "Mobile PhotoFit" resizes digital photos for the smaller mobile device displays.

In addition, the Media Manager enables users to synchronise media between the desktop and their portable devices such as iPods, BlackBerrys, and PSPs.

MyDVD 10 Premier is available now direct from Roxio priced at £49.99.
