Sonic debuts DVD Producer version 3.5

Sonic Solutions have unveiled DVD Producer Version 3.5, the latest version of their professional DVD authoring system, at IBC.
With its extended pallet of new authoring and design features, DVD Producer 3.5 aims to further streamline the process of creating advanced DVD titles and provides all-in-one convenience for producers of professional DVDs.
DVD Producer features real-time MPEG compression of video and Dolby Digital audio, powerful OpenDVD-compliant authoring, and Sonic's exclusive JumpAnywhere automatic DVD navigation programming. In addition, DVD Producer's Hollywood-proven DVD formatting engine creates the most compatible DVD discs and outputs to a wide range of DVD-recordable devices. DVD Producer is available in both a software-only version, or a version tightly integrated with Sonic's acclaimed SD-series hardware video encoding solutions.
DVD Producer Version 3.5 incorporates important new capabilities, including powerful menu design technology to create DVD menus that would typically require the use of separate graphics and video editing applications. The new design engine enables the automatic creation of animated-motion buttons with drag-and-drop simplicity, and incorporates a familiar text tool for creating stylish button labels or menu headings with drop shadow effects. Version 3.5 also includes custom Jacket Picture creation, enhanced file transcoding functions, impressive speed enhancements, a unique manual-button routing function for tailoring complex DVD menus, and extended support for the widest range of DVD-recordable devices.
DVD Producer is the latest Sonic authoring application to create OpenDVD-compliant discs. OpenDVD is new technology that allows finished DVD-Video discs to be edited, to add or delete video and audio content. Menus and navigation can be changed or expanded, and the finished project written to DVD-Recordable media.
Sonic plans to release DVD Producer Version 3.5 in October 2002.
