Sony announces upgrades to its Blu-ray offerings

Mumbai: Following the industry-wide adoption of the Sony Blu-ray high definition DVD format, Sony Creative Software announced upgrades to its DVD Architect and Blu-print applications for authoring Blu-ray discs. Ongoing development of Blu-ray authoring solutions reinforces Sony’s commitment to offer comprehensive production solutions, from software to hardware, at the prosumer and global production scale.
"With the release of DVD Architect 5, Sony Creative Software now offers a comprehensive tool for Vegas Pro users to publish their work in the Blu-ray Disc format, highlighting our position as the software foundation of the integrated Sony solution," said Sony Creative Software vice president of global marketing Dave Chaimson.
"Not only does the Blu-ray format feature next-generation video quality, but it also showcases next-generation interactivity that requires incredibly powerful authoring applications," continued Chaimson.
Blu-print 4.3 enterprise software, available in May, solves these challenges for enterprise-level production houses with tools that help streamline the development of interactive Blu-ray features such as Internet-connected content and multi-story discs.
