Ulead Systems is a Taiwanese computer software company headquartered in Neihu district in Taipei, Taiwan. It is a subsidiary of Corel Corporation.


Ulead was founded in August 5, 1989 by Lotus Chen, Lewis Liaw and Way-Zen Chen. They founded Ulead with the support of Microtek after leaving Taiwan's Institute for Information Industry in order to further develop and commercialize their first true color image editing software, PhotoStyler, on the Windows platform.

Ulead sold PhotoStyler through Aldus software as a software developer. However, Aldus merged into Adobe Systems in 1994 and PhotoStyler is no longer available. Ulead then continued to develop PhotoImpact 3 as its flagship image editor and sell PhotoImpact by itself. Today, PhotoImpact is known as a competitor of Adobe Photoshop.

Ulead Systems then extended its development of multimedia software in various areas such as video editing, media management, web utility, DVD authoring and digital home.

On September 17, 2001, Ulead was listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange as [http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=2487.TW 2487.TW] .

On April 13, 2005, InterVideo acquired Ulead Systems for approximately $68 million. On July 9, 2006, InterVideo announced its merger with Ulead to be completed on December 28, 2006.

On 28 August, 2006, Corel Corporation announced that it would acquire InterVideo for about $196 million.
