Metropolis DVD expands with Sonic technology

Sonic Solutions, a world leading DVD creation systems company, has announced the expansion of Metropolis DVD with new systems and technology from Sonic.
Capitalizing on the robust DVD-Video market in New York and on its reputation as an innovative and creative provider of DVD production services, Metropolis DVD, has added four Sonic Scenarist workstations and a Sonic DVD PrePlay emulation system to its current installation of four Sonic DVD Creator systems.
The new systems also complement Metropolis DVD¹s next-generation Sonic SD-2000 MPEG-2 encoders and will be utilized for high-end commercial production, music video, and feature film DVD encoding and authoring.
Sonic Scenarist is designed to meet the demanding requirements of professional authoring facilities looking for a powerful, feature-rich solution to produce titles for commercial and feature film distribution.
"We are extremely pleased to add Sonic Scenarist and DVD PrePlay to our full line of DVD services at Metropolis DVD," said Dave Anthony, President of Design and Production at Metropolis DVD.
"Having worked with Sonic since the very beginning, we have been able to produce many blockbuster DVDs such as Traffic and Do The Right Thing, as well as music titles such as The World According to Nappy, a disc designed and produced from the beginning as an interactive DVD, and the first DVD-only title to be nominated for a Grammy award. Now that it's time to expand our cutting-edge facility, we know that Sonic DVD technology will deliver what we need now and in the future."
"Metropolis DVD's clients have come to expect the most creative titles and the highest-possible quality in DVD production," said Rolf Hartley, Vice President and General Manager of the Professional Products Group at Sonic.
"We are extremely pleased that Metropolis DVD has chosen to double its capacity with Sonic, and we are confident that our Scenarist and DVD Preplay products will deliver beyond their expectations."
