Roxio introduce Easy Media Creator 8

Roxio, a division of Sonic Solutions, one of the leaders in digital media software, has introduced Easy Media Creator 8, the most significant upgrade ever to its industry-leading digital media suite.
Easy Media Creator 8 seamlessly merges advanced technologies from Roxio and Sonic into the most comprehensive suite of CD and DVD authoring, burning, photo, video, and music applications available.
Scheduled to be available globally in retail and online beginning later this month, Easy Media Creator 8’s innovative features extend the possibilities of digital media creation, management, preservation, sharing, and enjoyment.
“Easy Media Creator 8, our flagship application suite, empowers consumers to unleash the full potential of their digital media,” said Dave Habiger, President and CEO of Sonic Solutions. “Combining technologies we’ve pioneered for Hollywood with extensive user feedback and research, Easy Media Creator 8 sets a new category standard offering a unique blend of power and ease of use. With its original, innovative features that make previously impossible tasks a reality for the first time, Easy Media Creator 8 truly is the best way for consumers to manage and share their digital lives.”
Consumers’ new digital media experience begins at Media Creator Home, the central hub for navigating to any of the suite’s 25 premier applications, launching specialised features or completing common tasks in just a few mouse clicks using Home’s embedded functionality. From Home, users can quickly appreciate the tremendous depth and breadth of digital media functionality Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 delivers. Those seeking guidance, or with little time to invest, will appreciate the new Task Assistants that lead them quickly through the creation of stunning personalised projects.
Headlining the new music capabilities of Easy Media Creator 8 is DVD Music Disc, which turns any DVD player into a virtual music jukebox with up to 50 hours of Dolby Digital quality music. With enough room for approximately 65 albums, DVD Music Discs play back in standard set-top DVD players and feature attractive DVD menus and navigation by track, artist, genre, album or year, accessed via remote control. Another industry first in Easy Media Creator 8 is MusicID, which acoustically fingerprints unknown music files to automatically fix or add the correct ID3 tag information such as title, artist, and genre. MusicID is a tremendous time saver for consumers using Easy Media Creator 8’s feature for digitising classic LPs and tapes. Other new audio features enable users to burn a long audio compilation across multiple audio CDs simultaneously, and specify a play back order of MP3 and WMA files even if their player only supports alphabetical playback. Another Easy Media Creator 8 innovation makes it easy to extract audio from DVDs to create audio CDs or MP3/WMA music tracks for use on portable players.
