Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) September 23, 2008

NetBlender today introduced Mosiac Pro, an enhancement to the Photoshop importing capabilities of their leading Blu-ray authoring product, DoStudio. Mosaic Pro allows Photoshop designers to include navigation commands in the Photoshop layer names that are imported with the menu graphics into the DoStudio project. The result is a new type of Blu-ray Disc template contained in a PSD file that dramatically reduces the amount of time it takes to author a Blu-ray disc.

"After consulting with numerous post facilities we discovered that most authors are spending 6 to 10 times longer authoring a Blu-ray disc compared to a DVD. The resulting authoring costs are a significant barrier to Blu-ray adoption by their customers," said John Harrington, NetBlender CEO. "We are introducing Mosaic Pro as a significant step towards closing the gap between Blu-ray authoring time and the time it takes to author a DVD."

With Mosaic Pro, approximately 90% of the Blu-ray disc's authoring can be contained in the Photoshop file. Upon import, Mosaic Pro sets up all of the menu graphics, navigation interaction and the playlist. The DoStudio author simply adds the video files to the playlist and compiles the disc.

Mosaic Pro will be released in October with an update to the DoStudio Blu-ray authoring solution.

Since its introduction in May of this year, NetBlender's DoStudio BD Authoring Edition has been instrumental in breaking down barriers to Blu-ray production for independent production facilities worldwide. Mosaic Pro is the latest enhancement that demonstrates the company's commitment to promoting the format among non-Hollywood facilities.

DoStudio is a professional Blu-ray authoring tool that is designed for DVD authors who are making the transition to Blu-ray disc. NetBlender has identified the most pressing needs of the professional Blu-ray authoring community and designed DoStudio to meets those needs efficiently and affordably.
