DoStudio Workflow will enable us to maximize our production efficiency, while still providing the advanced authoring tools to create unique interactive features.
Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 20, 2009
NetBlender announced today the launch of a new, integrated Blu-ray production suite called DoStudio Workflow (DSW). Priced at $4,995, DSW is aimed at helping small and medium-sized labs and independent studios efficiently and cost-effectively break into the Blu-ray market. DSW is a turnkey Blu-Ray system with all the encoding and authoring tools needed to release your title on Blu-ray disc.
"DoStudio Workflow is an affordable, efficient and feature-rich Blu-ray solution that's long overdue," said Tony Cunha, Founder of Duplitech Corporation, an LA-based digital media solution provider serving clients in the entertainment, sports and corporate markets since 1994. "DoStudio Workflow will enable us to maximize our production efficiency, while still providing the advanced authoring tools to create unique interactive features."
"Blu-ray's time has come. Players have come way down in price and more and more homes have HD television sets. The last significant barriers for small and medium sized studios and labs are the high price and complexity of the big authoring solutions," said John Harrington, NetBlender CEO. "NetBlender is out to change this by providing practical and professional Blu-ray solutions that streamline studios' production workflow and let more studios get into the Blu-ray business. We've got a great start to this with DoStudio Authoring, a solution that has been used to author more than 200 professional, mass replicated BD titles. DoStudio Workflow represents the next step in executing our vision by providing a one-stop-shop for speedy and reliable Blu-ray production, from encoding through to burning."
DSW provides professional Blu-ray producers with all the great features and functionality of DoStudio Authoring, plus:
- Easy integration with Final Cut Pro - import FCP files straight into DSW
- Fully integrated Blu-ray compliant video encoder, jointly developed by VSofts and NetBlender, that combines the highest video quality with 100% BD Player compatibility
- Advanced Multi-channel HD Audio Encoding
- Encoded streams automatically generate the authoring playlist
- Integrated subtitling, burning and formatting
"Vanguard Software Solutions (VSofts), a leader in the broadcast market with its patented H.264 encoding solutions, is excited to work with NetBlender for the DoStudio Workflow (DSW) suite. DSW delivers the most cost-effective BD production solution that passes all professional Blu-ray video verifiers.
