WildTangent Announces 3D Audio Visualizer Support for UltraPlayer MP3 Audio Software

Redmond, WA February 24, 2000: WildTangent announced today audio visualizer support for the new UltraPlayer™ MP3 audio software released to market last week. Consumers can download the free 900K plug-in, complete with four visualizations, from the WildTangent Web site at http://www.wildtangent.com or the UltraPlayer site at http://www.ultraplayer.com.

"UltraPlayer is a fresh new face to the audio player market. The UltraPlayer's skinning flexibility and focus on the streaming radio market makes UltraPlayer a natural for the WildTangent visualizers," stated Libby Dunkin, WildTangent's program and business development manager for the Visualizer product. "We look forward to working more closely with the UltraPlayer team to bring internet audiophiles rich 3D multimedia interactivity to their listening experience."

"With the addition of WildTangent's cutting edge technology, UltraPlayer users can now enjoy stunning 3D visuals as they listen to their favorite tunes. This is one of the many fantastic new features that we'll be adding in the coming weeks as we continue to demonstrate our commitment to providing our customers with the best audio player application available" said Warren Hultquist, Business Development Manager of UltraCo.

The WildTangent Visualizers come with a software development kit (SDK) which allows you to create visualizers in Java and JavaScript. In the past, visualizations could only be created by experienced Windows developers, limiting the number of people who could create them. The WildTangent Visualizer SDK enables anyone, with a little scripting experience, the ability to bring music alive with their own custom visualizer. The WildTangent SDK provides examples of how to animate models and how to have a world of shifting lights and surfaces to get you started in building your own visualizer. The Visualizer SDK can be found at http://www.wildtangent.com/developer/dev_download.html

The UltraPlayer™ audio software plays MP3, WAV, CD Audio, and Internet radio streams using the highly efficient Neutrino™ MPEG audio decoder. The feature-packed music application includes a dual-mode, intuitive interface that allows users to play, build and manage playlists, tune to and record Internet radio streams, search for music, adjust levels with the Graphic-EQ, convert MP3s to WAV files, set the SmartAlarm™, and much more. The free UltraPlayer Audio Software can be downloaded at www.ultraplayer.com.
