Sonic Solutions announces deal with Microsoft

Sonic Solutions have announced that Microsoft has licensed Sonic AuthorScript, the world’s leading CD and DVD formatting and burning engine, for incorporation into certain future versions of Microsoft Windows.
The new license of Sonic AuthorScript allows Microsoft to build in capabilities for creating and burning photo slideshows, videos, recorded TV programs, music and data to CDs and DVDs.
Sonic and Microsoft entered into a multi-year licensing deal in January 2002 in which Microsoft licensed Sonic’s DVD-Video authoring technology. Under that agreement, Sonic is providing core DVD technology and development expertise to Microsoft. In the new agreement between the two companies, Microsoft has the option to integrate AuthorScript into certain future versions of Windows, making it easier for consumers to create CDs and DVDs.
Mary Sauer. Senior Vice-President of business development at Sonic, said: “We are very pleased to expand our collaboration with Microsoft. Users want to be able to easily record and share their photos, music, videos and TV programs on CD or DVD. Through AuthorScript, Microsoft can provide tremendous convenience and flexibility to consumers and enable them to create discs that can be played back on hundreds of millions of PCs and set-top DVD players.”
The Sonic AuthorScript Software Development Kit (SDK) is the world’s leading engine for the creation and burning of DVDs and CDs. AuthorScript makes it easy for third-party developers to add a broad range of CD and DVD technologies into their applications and to support the widest array of CD and DVD burners. Sonic AuthorScript has been licensed by industry-leading companies including Adobe, AOL, Avid, Microsoft, Sony and many others.
