ArcSoft, Inc., the world-leading multimedia software provider, announced today that MediaImpression HD, ArcSoft’s latest version of their popular PC media management software, now gives users the ability to order photo prints via the LifePics Retailer Network. With over 13,000 retailers and photofinishers as part of the LifePics Network, users of MediaImpression HD can now place orders for photo prints from home, and then pick them up locally, the same day.
"We’re pleased to partner with LifePics to offer MediaImpression HD users a new and better way to get high-quality photo prints," said Bill Chen, ArcSoft's DGM of Digital Multimedia Services and Solutions Group. "It’s important to make the process of print ordering as simple and convenient as possible for consumers. By integrating LifePics into our platform, we’re able to do just that."
ArcSoft MediaImpression® HD offers simple-to-use features and creative tools geared around photos, videos, and music. The new version of MediaImpression offers high-performance support for HD videos, a totally revamped user interface, and new social networking features to match the demands of today’s socially-connected consumers.
"These days, digital photos are everywhere, and consumers expect convenience and instant gratification when it comes to ordering photos and preserving memories," said Vahe Christianian, Vice President of Sales and Business Development at LifePics. "Our integration with ArcSoft’s MediaImpression HD software simplifies the ordering process and eliminates the need to download photos from the software and upload to an ordering site. Plus, our network provides the convenience of ordering through a trusted local photofinisher and picking up the order in an hour, rather than having to wait a week and pay shipping charges."
