Sonic MyDVD 4 expands home DVD creation capability

Sonic Solutions, a leader in DVD creation software, have introduced MyDVD 4 at PC Expo.
MyDVD 4 is the latest version of Sonic's leading application software for personal DVD creation. With a host of new features, including support for photo slideshows on DVD or CD, motion menus like those found on Hollywood movies, and a new streamlined user interface, Sonic MyDVD 4 facilitates easier home video conversion. In addition, photos can be converted into professional-quality DVDs that can be shared with family and friends.
MyDVD is the consumer DVD solution of choice among leading manufacturers of PCs, DVD drives and graphics cards including Adaptec, Compaq, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, NEC, Nova, Panasonic, Philips, Pioneer, Sony and many others. MyDVD 4 is debuting at PC Expo and will ship in July.
"Pioneer has long been a strong partner of Sonic Solutions, and we have been extremely pleased with the added value that MyDVD has provided to our DVD recording solutions," said Andy Parsons, Senior Vice-president of Industrial Video/Mass Storage Sales and Marketing, Pioneer Electronics.
MyDVD 4 provides a full suite of DVD creation capabilities, including: recording of a DVD directly from a camcorder; creating motion menus; DVD-based slideshows with photos and sound; and automatic photographic archives.
Version 4 is also OpenDVD compliant, enabling previously-burned DVDs to be opened, re-edited, updated with new video content, and re-burned to recordable DVD media. MyDVD 4 also adds OpenDVD support for the new slideshow and motion menu capabilities.
"MyDVD 4 represents the culmination of significant behavioural and user research – we not only worked with MyDVD users to determine what they most wanted to share on DVDs, but analysed how they worked with their digital video and photos, as well," said Mark Ely, General Manager, Desktop Products Group at Sonic.
"The end result is an application which we believe sets new standards for both functionality and ease-of-use, and heralds a revolution in sharing video and pictures similar to the advent of desktop publishing."
