Vado silver Creative Unveiled Pocket Size Video Cam

Creative Technology Ltd., a worldwide leader in video innovation, today
announced the Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam. Small enough to fit easily in your
pocket, purse or the palm of your hand, the Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam
changes the way video is captured, shared and stored by making it fast, easy and
fun.

A breakthrough in video camera design, the Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam, at
only S$ 169.00, is dramatically thinner and lighter than competing video cameras.
Available in silver or hot pink, the Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam is so small
and lightweight that it is hard to believe it can capture such high-quality
video. With the press of a button, you can record life’s spontaneous moments,
whether it is baby’s first steps, awesome sports stunts or hilarious adventures
with friends.

Craig McHugh, President and COO of Creative Labs Inc., describes how the
Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam completely changes the experience of shooting and
sharing video:

“When you’re having a really great time and are experiencing one of life’s
special or funny moments, you’d love to have a video of it but you don’t have
your video camera with you. Your camcorder is likely stored away somewhere in a
camera bag, because it’s too expensive and you’re afraid of breaking it. You end
up missing many video opportunities and use your camcorder only for planned
video shoots. When you finally do get it out to shoot something, you have to
make sure you have a tape or disc and the batteries are charged before you set
up your shot. Chances are you’re going to miss that awesome spontaneous moment
while you get your camera ready. Once you’ve shot the video, how are you
supposed to share it with anyone? It can be a time-consuming challenge trying to
figure out how to get video from your camera or tape, so it remains stuck on the
camera or put away somewhere in a box of tapes or discs, and you can’t share it
with your family and friends.

The Creative Vado changes all of that! We’re making shooting and sharing video
as easy as taking pictures with a point-and-shoot portable digital camera. The
Creative Vado is so small and lightweight that you can have it in your pocket so
it’s always there, or you can just set it on your coffee table so everyone in
the family can use it. It’s so inexpensive and easy to use that you don’t have
to worry. It’s always ready to capture spontaneous moments that are once in a
lifetime, the type you can’t plan for in advance. The Creative Vado doesn’t need
tapes or discs; it can record up to two hours of high-quality video on its
built-in 2GB of memory and it has a removable rechargeable battery, so you can
shoot two hours of video on a single charge and you don’t have to hassle with
disposable batteries.

Just as the Creative Vado makes it super easy and quick to shoot video, it makes
it incredibly easy and fast to get the videos off the camera. It has a built-in
USB connector so you can just plug it into your PC, just like you would with a
thumb drive. The Creative Vado has a software program built right into it that
will prompt you to copy the video, or you can just drag the videos directly to
your PC. With one easy step, the software can take you to YouTube or Photobucket
so you can easily post your videos. When you want to share your videos with only
friends and family, you can use Box.net, where they can either view or download
a copy of the video. Box.net provides online storage and creates a web link to
videos you’ve uploaded, so you can share them with anyone.”
