Acer Group to Bundle Nero 9 Essentials on All Desktop PCs
Nero, creators of liquid media technology, today expanded their relationship with Acer Group, one of the world’s largest PC manufacturers. By the end of 2009, Acer Group will bundle Nero 9 Essentials, an OEM version of the Nero 9 integrated digital media and home entertainment software suite, on all desktop systems sold globally, including the Acer, Gateway, Packard Bell and eMachines brands.
“Consumers need to be able to take their new system out of the box and complete tasks like burning music or videos with ease, and share their favorite digital content with friends and family,” said Jackson Lin, vice president of Global Strategic Alliance, IT Products Global Operations at Acer Group. “Nero 9 Essentials gives them a quick and easy way to jump right into enjoying the power and functionality of their new computer.”
Currently, all Packard Bell branded desktop and notebook computers are bundled with the award-winning burning solution. By including Nero 9 Essentials on all desktop systems in the Acer Group family, consumers will be able to easily burn CDs and DVDs and access the easy-to-use Nero StartSmart 9 Essential interface for navigating through the product’s features. The Nero Toolkit provides the industry standard for testing and benchmarking optical recording drives. With LabelFlash, consumers can easily personalize CDs and DVDs with custom inscriptions of text or photos.
“Customer feedback guides the design of each of our offerings. As a result, we’ve built a strong worldwide reputation of providing solid solutions for consumers to enjoy their content at home, on-the-go, and online,” said Hyder Rabbani, senior vice president of Worldwide OEM Sales at Nero. “The bundling of the Nero 9 Essentials software with Acer computers takes advantage of the new Windows 7 operating systems and delivers a computer optimized for today’s PC users.”
Acer Group desktop owners will be able to upgrade to the full Nero 9 suite with a special discount offer, along with other Nero products, including Nero BackItUp & Burn, Nero MediaHome and Nero Move it. For more information about Nero 9, please visit www.nero.com.
