The SD-1000 encoder provides video professionals with the following key capabilities:
Real-time encoding with preview during encode to external
video monitor (A/B switching)
Exceptional video quality at low bit-rates
Real-time stereo PCM, MPEG-1 layer II and Dolby Digital audio encoding

The SD-1000 encoder is based on the same technology used in Sonic's SD-2000 model that is used in post-production facilities worldwide, and can be upgraded to the SD-2000 at any time.
SD-1000 Version 2.1.6, which includes compatibility with Apple DVD Studio Pro, is available now through Sonic's worldwide network of professional resellers, at a suggested U.S. list price of $10,000.
