Sonic Solutions support DVD-R Dual Layer recording
Sonic Solutions has announced that it will support the forthcoming DVD-R Dual Layer recording standard across its complete line of consumer and professional applications as well as in its industry-standard AuthorScript engine.
Working closely with the leading drive manufacturers developing the DVD-R DL format, Sonic is leveraging its advanced dual layer recording technology, developed for Hollywood DVDs, to deliver the industry’s first DVD-R DL applications when the drives ship in early Q1, 2005.
DVD-R DL enables users to create DVDs that can hold up to eight hours of video or 8.5 billion bytes of data on a single recordable disc.
“Sonic has long been a partner of Pioneer’s in helping to bring the latest advances in DVD recording technology to market,” said Ryuichiro Yoshimura, General Manager of the Business Planning Department, Components Business Company at Pioneer. Sonic’s support for DVD-R DL is based on its industry-leading HyperMux DVD formatting technology which has been used by Hollywood to create the majority of the world’s professional dual layer DVDs.
Extending this technology to the DVD-R DL recording format, Sonic’s applications and software development kits are able to take advantage of the same advanced title layout, buffer management, layer-break control, and frame selection technologies used by Hollywood.
Jim Taylor, General Manager of Sonic’s Advanced Technology Group said: “With the capacity to store almost twice the content of a standard DVD, dual layer DVDs have long been the format of choice for Hollywood studios looking to deliver maximum entertainment value to consumers. Now those same consumers are using recordable DVD to back up their personal data and share their home movies and photos".
Comprehensive support for DVD-R Dual Layer across the Sonic product line will enable consumers to fit much more video, photos, and other data onto a single disc, and professional customers can create and test dual layer titles more easily before committing them to mass replication.
