[prMac.com] Marina del Rey, California - Premier provider of video desktop solutions, Amuse, Inc., is pleased to announce Serene Saver Pro 3.11, an update to their highly popular video desktop and screen saver utility for Mac OS X. Serene Saver Pro replaces the standard still desktop to which Mac users are accustomed, with a gorgeous video desktop that plays high-definition movies of the users choice.
With a focus on ease-of-use, Serene Saver Pro is a unique cross between a video desktop (moving wallpaper) and screen saver, offering an entirely new facet of personalized computing experience. Its built-in video importer easily lets users import their own movie scenes for use as video desktops. Users now can have beloved family movies, movies of friends and special events, vacation movies, and much more playing right on their desktops.
Among Serene Saver Pro's most prolific features is its ability to automatically mute its sound at appropriate times. For example, when the user launches a music player, Serene Saver can disable and/or mute itself. When the user finishes listening, Serene Saver Pro will automatically turn back on. Users may designate any set of applications for which Serene Saver Pro disables or mutes. Serene Saver Pro can also be set to recognize when the users laptop is operating on battery power, and disable itself to conserve power. Serene Saver turns itself back on when the user plugs into a power source.
"We're thrilled with Serene Saver Pro and the evolution it continues to bring to the Macintosh desktop," said Kevin Kachikian, founder and CEO of Amuse, Inc. "The new Serene Saver Pro lets Mac users personalize and customize their desktop environment like never before, and do so with their own personal movies and video content."
In addition, Serene Saver Pro boasts a wide variety of stunning, high-definition movie videos shot from all around the globe, accompanied with relaxing nature sound effects. Upon purchase, download access to over three dozen additional hi-def movie videos are available from within the software itself.
