Sonic Ships PlantDirect tapeless premastering

Sonic Solutions have announced they are now shipping PlantDirect, an exclusive technology that allows DVD title masters to be delivered to replication facilities over the Internet.
PlantDirect is an add-on software module for the Sonic ROM Formatter application, the industry-standard DVD formatting solution used to prepare Hollywood-level DVD title master tapes.
Until now, professional DVD authors were required to use expensive Digital Linear Tape (DLT) storage drives and media to deliver DVD masters through standard shipping methods to the plant. PlantDirect eliminates the DLT step in the production chain and dramatically speeds the process of connecting the authoring facility with the replication plant by allowing the finished masters to be delivered electronically.
PlantDirect enables Sonic ROM Formatter to write the industry-standard file-sets required for the replication of DVDs to hard disk instead of DLT. Using a typical file transfer protocol (FTP) client application, DVD authoring facilities can electronically upload their titles from their hard disk to the replication plant saving precious time in the DVD creation process.
