Huntington Beach, California - January 4, 2002 - ProVUE Development will be demonstrating its new Panorama iPod Organizer at MacWorld Expo next week in San Francisco (Booth 3426). The Apple iPod(tm) is designed to store and play music, but with the Panorama iPod Organizer users can make all of their important information available at their fingertips on their iPod. The iPod's jog wheel makes it easy to quickly locate any of the data stored on the device.

With the Panorama iPod Organizer users can store and access phone numbers, email addresses, flight numbers, appointment times and more on their iPods. Data can be entered and edited in the Panorama iPod Organizer itself or can be imported from other database or contact manager software. Information can be organized on the iPod into custom categories (Home, Work, Travel, etc.).

The Panorama iPod Organizer requires no special software on the iPod. To transfer data to the iPod the package exports the data as tiny MP3 files compatible with iTunes. (The MP3 files are silent.) When the iPod is synced with the Macintosh all of the contact information is automatically transferred to the iPod. The organizer information is extremely compact -- in fact, 1,000 contacts will use less than 0.1% of the space on the iPod's 5 gigabyte hard drive.

Once the organizer information has been transferred to the iPod the user can navigate the data just like ordinary music files. All of the categories the user has created appear in the Artists menu on the iPod. For example, suppose the Panorama iPod Organizer has been used to store the phone number for American Airlines in the Travel category on the iPod. To find this phone number on the iPod the user would first select Artists, then scroll down to the Travel entry. Once the user selects the Travel option they can then locate American Airlines and find the phone number and any other information associated with that entry.

The Panorama iPod Organizer can be used by anyone with an iPod. Users of ProVUE's Panorama database software get an extra bonus, however. With the Panorama iPod Organizer installed any Panorama database can be easily converted into a source for iPod data. Any data that can fit on the iPod screen can be downloaded to the iPod: parts catalogs, check lists, schedules, the possibilities are endless.

The Panorama iPod Organizer will be available in late January 2002 for an introductory price of $19.95. For more information on the Panorama iPod Organizer see:
