Sonic Solutions announced at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention (NAB) this week that Avid Technology, Inc. will bundle Sonic ReelDVD LE with its Avid Xpress DV v3.5 PowerPack digital video editing software and its successive products.
Based on the same Sonic DVD technology that is among the standards for Hollywood title production, ReelDVD LE offers affordable, professional DVD authoring and is designed to bring the power of DVD publishing to nonlinear video editors. The combination of Sonic's ReelDVD LE and Avid Xpress DV software provides producers and editors with the ability to edit analog or digital video, encode projects to MPEG-2, and author compelling DVD titles with motion menus, exciting still and slide shows, multiple audio and subtitle streams, and the highest level of DVD player compatibility. Avid Xpress DV 3.5 PowerPack, featuring ReelDVD LE, was demonstrated at NAB this week.
Avid Xpress DV v3.5 is built on a revolutionary real-time architecture that delivers more than 100 customizable real-time effects, professional-level color correction with waveform and vectorscope analysis, and multiple simultaneous real-time streams—all in software. Users can preview a title, apply a dissolve, perform color correction, and animate a picture-in-picture effect simultaneously—all without rendering. Avid Xpress DV v3.5 software allows users to customize every parameter of every real-time effect and see it all right away.
