WENR and VCA Develop Voice Controlled DVD Player

(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- VoiceDVD (www.voicedvd.com), a wholly owned subsidiary of WENR Corp. and VCA Interactive, a division of VCA Labs Inc., a leading producer of adult entertainment, have developed a voice-controlled DVD player software.

VCA is releasing a Beta version of the DVD player on an upcoming title in July. Once testing is completed, the player will be incorporated into an interactive title to be released January 2003.

VoiceDVD was created to allow viewers to control their DVD players with voice commands. VoiceDVD licensed the technology from ScreenFriends Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of WENR Corp. VoiceDVD and VCA jointly developed the DVD player software. Initially the VoiceDVD will be sold by VCA, but in the future the technology may be licensed to other studios. Purchasers of upcoming VCA Interactive DVD's will be able to operate the DVD player with voice commands for common functions, such as "play, pause, fast forward, etc." the player will also enable the user to command embedded functionality that will emulate conversing with the actors in the movie, thereby creating a "truly" interactive experience for the users.

The software, accessible only through Windows-based computers, will allow users to access functions such as menu items and skipping chapters. Allen Gold, head of VCA Interactive, said the voice recognition software is also being written to understand variations of commands that will take viewers to specific angles, actions and points on the disc. If users' acceptance is positive, VoiceDVD is planning to bring this technology to standard DVD players.

"This technology provides the user with a more interactive experience," says Azat Aslanyan, Project Manager for VoiceDVD. He adds, "They are able to converse with the characters in the movie with their voice rather than the click of the mouse. This gives the user a real feeling of a one-on-one experience."

VCA is one of the largest companies in the adult entertainment industry. The year-long development time, Gold adds, is not only to improve on the software, but to build the marketing campaign. "We're going to launch it at AEE with a huge release ... I want rollout time," he says. "I want PR time. Let people know that it's coming. I don't want to just shock the customer."

"It's not just to have voice-activation, but top quality voice-activation, truly interactive software, so people receive exactly what they think they're buying," adds Mischa Allen, publicist for VCA.

WENR is a public company that seeks to acquire software oriented technology companies. WENR provides senior management assistance for product, market development and funding facilities for operations.
