Clearplay DVD Player
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Call For Action found a new DVD player that will bring back movie night for the whole family.  It's equipped with software that's designed to recognize violent scenes and profanity, and skip over them.  The blockbuster movie, Gladiator is one of 100's of films you can now filter at home using settings on this special DVD player.


Founder of this parental control software, Matt Jarmin, developed what's called "Clearplay" it's built right into the DVD player


Matt Jarmin:


�You put the movie in and set the controls.�


�Using 14 different settings, you could potentially come up with a thousand ways to filter one movie already 500 movies are designed for this DVD, but you can buy updated filters for movies as they come out.�


�The end result is a presentation that works, most people don't even know that things are happening."


Frame by frame matt's team scrutinizes each movie editing out what they consider inappropriate for children.  It looks simple enough but it took years to create this software and there's still more work to keep up with the new releases.   But "Clearplay" can ultimately change the way you watch movies with your children.  Most electronic stores now sell this new DVD.
