Sonic Releases Scenarist BD Edition 4.3

Sonic Solutions has launched Scenarist BD Edition 4.3, an important upgrade to its high-definition authoring system that makes the creation of Blu-ray Disc titles with advanced interactive content significantly more accessible and straightforward. Bringing speed and efficiency to all aspects of the BD title authoring workflow, Scenarist BD Edition includes new networked multiplexing capabilities, streamlined asset management capabilities, and the industry's best-of-breed still-image encoder for the highest-possible quality menus and HD slide shows. Scenarist BD Edition is also the world's first application to allow professional authors to enable BD-Java functions used to create advanced interactive programming with drag-and-drop simplicity and produce BD-Objects and JAR files through a wizard-based workflow. The simplified workflow is integrated into a full-featured Java editor to provide the balance between ease and control and make Scenarist BD Edition a comprehensive authoring system for creating Hollywood-class Blu-ray disc titles.

Now featuring graphical user interface for creating BD-Java, Scenarist BD Edition 4.3 allows professional authors to create compelling interactivity and menu navigation without knowing the rigors of BD-J programming. Combining an efficient drag-and-drop user model with the ability to gain access to the deepest levels of Java programming, Scenarist BD Edition 4.3 provides users with the simplicity they need for base-line capabilities as well as the fine-tune control required for developing first-of-kind advanced interactive titles.

Scenarist BD Edition 4.3 is also available as part of Scenarist High-Definition Workgroup which also includes Scenarist HD DVD Edition; CineVision, for high definition video compression; and Scenarist Designer, which provides a highly efficient menu creation facility for both HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
