Sonic's AuthorScript included in update of Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition

Sonic Solutions have announced that Microsoft have licensed Sonic AuthorScript, the world’s leading CD and DVD formatting and burning engine, for the recently updated version of Plus! Digital Media Edition, Microsoft’s popular photo, music, and movie enhancement pack for Windows XP.
By incorporating Sonic AuthorScript, Microsoft adds a key new feature for Plus! Digital Media Edition, Plus! Photo Story 2, which enables users to create photo story slideshows. These slideshows include music and narration and can be burned to Video CDs (VCDs) which can be viewed on most consumer DVD players.
Sonic AuthorScript also makes it possible for Plus! Digital Media Edition users to add an archive of the original high-resolution photo files to the Video CD.
“Integrating Sonic AuthorScript into our latest version of Plus! Digital Media Edition enables consumers to take their favorite Photo Story slideshows and play them back on their DVD players in the living room,” said Jason Reindorp, Group Manager in the Windows Digital Media Division at Microsoft Corp. “We were able to easily and quickly integrate Sonic’s AuthorScript Video CD burning technology into our popular product, giving consumers another great way to share their best photos and the stories that go with them.”
