Sonic and Sony Partner to Streamline Authoring Software17 Apr, 2008 By: Chris Tribbey
Sonic Solutions and Sony have teamed to streamline authoring software that enables BD Live features on Blu-ray Discs.
Sonic's Scenarist 4.5 software, the authoring software suite for Blu-ray, debuted April 17 at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas and includes enhancements to creating BD Live features, as well as new security tools for BD Live.
“The BD Live feature set is an exciting new capability for BD that combines the best of on-disc and online content to provide consumers with a dynamic and always-current entertainment experience,” said Rolf Hartley, SVP and GM of Sonic's Professional Products Group. “Sony's extensive knowledge of the BD specification combined with Sonic's experience in providing solutions for online interactive content via its InterActual products will help significantly boost BD Live title production.”
