aVinci Media's Photo Movie Software To Be Offered At Nation's Largest Retail Pharmacy Chain

DRAPER, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--aVinci Media Corporation, a company changing the way life's events and memories are created, shared, and preserved, will offer its aVinci Studio Photo DVD kits in approximately 6,300 Walgreens stores across the U.S. The Walgreens product launch is scheduled for mid-November 2008, in time for the holiday gifting season.

"Selling through Walgreens, the nation's largest retail pharmacy chain, is a major milestone for us," said Chett B. Paulsen, aVinci's chief executive officer. "Walgreens customers will be able to buy our DVD kit and use their home computers to create compelling full motion productions, complete with fully licensed popular music that they can view on any television or personal computer with a DVD player."

The aVinci Studio Photo DVD kits will be sold in the photo departments of Walgreens stores. Each kit comes with nine different "movie" themes for customers to choose from, including All Occasion, Wedding, Baby, Achievement, and Vacation, to name a few with additional seasonal titles available for download online. The kits, which retail for under $25, include a finished professional quality DVD production that is mailed directly to the end customer. A new feature to aVinciís software allows customers to preview and order matching photo books and/or posters with "one-click."

As part of its strategy to monetize some of the 300+ billion images captured in the U.S. each year and stored offline, aVinci Media's new Digital Image Lifestyle solutions are designed to automatically create compelling productions for customers rather than be another complex software tool that requires time or expertise to use.
