Sonic Announces Announces Blu-ray and HD-DVD Support
Posted Jan 7, 2005 Print Version     Page 1of 1
  

Sonic Solutions announced at the Consumer Electronics Show that it will support the forthcoming Blu-ray data recording standard in its line of Sonic- and Roxio-branded consumer applications, as well as in its AuthorScript Software Development Kit for CD and DVD creation.

Working closely with the leading drive manufacturers implementing the Blu-ray format, Sonic is leveraging its advanced DVD recording technology, deployed on hundreds of millions of PCs worldwide, to deliver the industry's first, next generation BD- RE and BD-R data recording applications when the first drives ship in the summer of 2005. Blu-ray recordable media can hold 25 gigabytes of data on a single-layer disc, providing the high capacity required for digital media archival of home movies, recorded TV shows, music collections, and digital photos. As the Blu-ray Disc video formats are finalized, Sonic will release a complete line of professional and consumer Blu-ray Disc applications for creation and playback of high- definition interactive content.

Sonic also announced that it is partnering with Panasonic to develop authoring systems for Blu-ray Disc (BD)-ROM for professional use. Under the agreement, the two companies will contribute technology and engineering toward the development of BD authoring systems. By combining Panasonic's BD technology with Sonic's expertise in creating highly interactive professional authoring environments, worldwide distribution channel, and vast installed user-base, the companies expect to establish the infrastructure required for professionals to gain access to the authoring technology in order to jump-start BD-ROM title creation.

 Finally, Sonic announced that it will deliver systems for professional HD DVD production in the summer of 2005; this will enable the studios to have movies and video content available with the expected release of HD DVD players in late 2005. The next generation format from the DVD Forum, HD DVD combines high- definition video and audio content with advanced interactivity and internet connectivity. In addition to providing professional HD DVD authoring systems, Sonic plans to add HD DVD support to its Sonic- and Roxio-branded desktop and consumer software applications as HD DVD-ROM readers and HD DVD burners become available.
