Sonic Solutions release 'Pick of NAB' authoring suite

Sonic Solutions have announced the release of their award-winning DVD Producer 3.1 software DVD authoring suite.
Signalling a new standard for DVD authoring, DVD Producer's revolutionary technology recently earned it a 'Pick Hit of NAB 2002' award from Video Systems magazine.
Sonic DVD Producer is an integrated and complete DVD-Video and DVD-ROM authoring system for Windows, and incorporates full support for the new OpenDVD standard for DVD interchange. DVD Producer features JumpAnywhere, an advanced point-and-click navigation programming interface that eliminates userscripting while delivering highly-advanced interactivity.
In addition, the application also features real-time bit-for-bit project proofing, Sonic's Hollywood-standard AuthorScript-powered multiplexing and formatting engine, and WriteDirect single-step output to the widest range of DVD-Recordable devices. DVD Producer also includes real-time MPEG video transcoding from FireWire and comprehensive DVD-ROM authoring, including provision for dual-layer ROM authoring.
"DVD Producer is one of the easiest to use and yet one of the most sophisticated authoring systems I have ever seen," said Steve Crozier, award-winning DVD producer at Midas Productions in Dublin, Ireland. "DVD interactivity and navigation that has previously taken a significant amount of user scripting expertise is now possible with just a few clicks of the mouse. It's truly brilliant."
DVD Producer was recently recognised at NAB 2002 by Video Systems with their 'Pick Hit' award, an honour determined by a panel of judges consisting of Video Systems editors and contributing editors, augmented by industry experts.
Matt Palmer, Senior Product Manager for Sonic's Professional Products Group, said: "Sonic is fully committed to the new OpenDVD standard, and DVD Producer provides the most comprehensive support anywhere for this exciting format. DVD Producer is built on Sonic's AuthorScript formatting engine, a standard for commercial title production in Hollywood, and as a result delivers an exceptional solution for professional DVD creators that allows them to focus on what they do best – create compelling DVDs, while relying on Sonic's expertise to ensure technical compatibility."
