Sonic Solutions has announced a new bundle deal for its DVD Fusion Mac DVD authoring suite. The bundle includes DVD Fusion and the SD-1000 Encoder, a capture card that can bring video directly into DVD Fusion without conversion. The total cost of the bundle is $12,499, about 20 percent off the regular price.

Designed specifically for use with DVD Fusion, the SD-1000 Encoder delivers high-quality video as well as support for direct, real-time encoding. The DVD Fusion SD-1000 encoder is designed for use with DVD Fusion SL and DVD Fusion Standard Edition. It uses some of the same technology as the higher-end DVD Creator SD-2000 encoder, including both constant bit-rate (CBR) and variable bit-rate (VBR) encoding and integrated stereo encoding of Dolby Digital audio.

Other features include:

  • MPEG-1 video encoding
  • MPEG-2 video encoding
  • Simultaneous stereo Dolby Digital, MPEG-1 Layer 2 and PCM audio encoding
  • CBR encoding (one- and two-pass)
  • Two-pass VBR encoding
  • Preview during encode (A/B switching)
  • Frame-accurate chapter points
  • Direct-24 Support
  • SDI digital video input
  • Stereo analog and digital audio input
  • Stereo Dolby Digital output (analog)
  • Direct Dolby Digital output (digital)

The bundle deal is valid through Dec. 15. For more information, visit http://www.sonic.com.
