Sonic Debuts Real-time Video Encoding for Apple DVD Studio Pro

(September 24, 2001)
Sonic Solutions announced that its SD-1000 video encoder is fully compatible with Apple's DVD Studio Pro authoring system. This provides an option to DVD Studio Pro users who want to add high-quality, real-time video encoding to their system, and also provides an easy upgrade path for DVD Studio Pro users to Sonic's professional DVD authoring applications on the Macintosh: DVD Fusion and DVD Creator.

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

  • Frame-accurate control over chapter point locations

  • 9-pin RS-422 machine control for frame-accurate 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.
