C I Host Enhances e-Memories Program to Empower Digital Camera Buffs; Photographers Upload Shots to Websites On the Go [13th November 2003]

BEDFORD, Texas, Nov 13, 2003 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- C I Host, a global leader in Web hosting, Internet infrastructure and software development, has completely retooled and re-launched its e-Memories software to capitalize on the holiday surge in digital photography.

Christopher Faulkner, CEO of C I Host, said, "e-Memories now can transform a photographer into a `virtual media mogul.' This is more than an on-line scrapbook. Version two is an on-line media center with streaming video, blogging, family TV, digital family trees, e-mail, slide shows, postcards, chatrooms, birthday reminders and more."

Experts estimate the digital camera market is a $4.5 billion industry. However less than 15 percent of camera owners have experimented with on-line slide shows and similar products, researchers say.

"Any one of these features alone could be priced higher than where we have positioned the entire e-Memories `bundle,'" Faulkner said. "The value of the product and the ease of use should attract many holiday shoppers hoping to complement their new digital cameras."

In addition, a person armed with a digital photo-equipped cell phone with Internet service literally can up load shots to their Web site on the go.

"With digital photography, people don't buy or process film, so they are shooting more frames," Faulkner said. "e-Memories is a great way to display their talents."
