CyberLink Unveils World's First Beautifying Video Selfies Feature in Major YouCam Perfect Update

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 28 July 2014 Release date- 24072014 - Taipei, Taiwan- CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), the world's leading consumer multimedia software company, today announced an update that brings two major new features to YouCam Perfect-beautifying video selfies and creative photo scene templates.

With over 3.5 million downloads in just three months since its initial release, YouCam Perfect is quickly becoming the most popular app for capturing perfect selfies-which can now be shot as photos or videos.

YouCam Perfect leverages CyberLink's ground breaking face beautifying technology to help users improve skin quality, face contour and eye shape, for instantly enhanced selfies. It also provides frames and collage tools to beautifully showcase photos before sharing them.

With short video clips becoming an increasingly popular means of interacting online, the new YouCam Perfect update brings the concept of selfies to videos. Users can shoot short 8-second video selfies and automatically apply filters in real-time to beautify appearance, remove skin blemishes, and give them an impressive and eye-catching boost. Easy-to-use video selfie recording allows users to shoot creative, flattering videos and share the footage to social media in just seconds.

Additionally, new templates allow users to add life to their selfies by placing them into a professionally designed scene or frame, such as a billboard advertisement or high school yearbook, then share to social media sites for friends and family to enjoy.

'We are thrilled to see the success of YouCam Perfect, which in just a few months has become one of the highest rating apps in the beauty camera segment,' said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. 'Self-expression through image and video sharing is an important part of today's social interactions and CyberLink is excited to be a driving force behind applications that help users create the look and feel that they're after.' YouCam Perfect Availability YouCam Perfect is available free on the App Store and Google Play. The new video selfie and photo scene template features of YouCam Perfect are currently only available for the iOS version, with an Android update scheduled for release in August 2014.
