Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) December 2, 2008
NetBlender today announced the release of DoStudio 1.6, a significant upgrade to the leading Blu-ray Authoring solution for independent production worldwide. The new version features expanded capabilities such as Slideshows, Dolby TrueHD support, and BD Touch integration. BD Touch allows discs to be controlled by an iPhone when played in a PS3.
Numerous workflow enhancements have been added based on customer feedback. These include Copy and Paste, enhanced asset validation, printable reports, and more.
"Lowering the cost of professional Blu-ray authoring by increasing efficiency is a top priority for us," said John Harrington, NetBlender CEO. "The independent market is poised to adopt Blu-ray en masse, and we have designed this new version of DoStudio to help foster Blu-ray adoption in the area by creating a robust yet easy to use authoring solution that includes all of the features a professional author requires."
Since its introduction in May 2008, DoStudio Blu-ray Authoring Edition has been used by professional authors in 34 countries. With numerous DoStudio-authored Blu-ray titles hitting store shelves this fall, the DoStudio Blu-ray authoring suite has become a favorite of non-Hollywood production studios.
"DoStudio is the ideal blend of professional features and ease of use," said Brian Neary, Blu-ray author at MVI Post in suburban Washington DC. "The low learning curve combined with the speed of authoring allows us to offer Blu-ray production at prices that are within range of our DVD customers."
