WonderWorks releases iPod movies


MUMBAI: WonderWorks Entertainment has come up with its Mobile Matinee collection of eight classic movies and 12 audiobooks on three DVD-ROMs for the iPod and iPhone market.

The DVD-ROM titles are pre-formatted for iPod, import quickly to iTunes and can be viewed on iPod, iPod Nano, iPhone, a computer or directly on TV by use of a 3-pin connector.

The new collections feature the films of Cary Grant, Danny Kaye, Shirley Temple, and William Powell among others, plus the writings of Mark Twain, H.G. Wells, Jack London, Edgar Allen Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Lewis Carroll and L. Frank Baum.

As the first to deliver iPod content on disk, Mobile Matinee represents a departure from conventional downloading.

WonderWorks CEO Rod Barkley said, “Our customers are interested in convenience and value. We think DVD-ROM collections are a great way to simplify the process of getting content onto the iPod, while expanding consumer choices and delivering great value.”

He added that the company’s audiobook collection, with 12 novels and short stories on a single disk, would soon be followed by a second volume, and that a collection of independent films was in progress.
