DV Studio Offers Apollo Expert DVDer/DVD Virtuoso Software Bundle, Adds Extensive Interactive Features for Sophisticated Users.

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 1, 1999--

DV Studio Technologies LLC (www.dv-studio.com) today announced that its Apollo Expert DVDer(TM) real-time MPEG-2 encoding solution is now available bundled with Spruce Technologies' DVDVirtuoso(TM) value-added software.

The DVDVirtuoso bundle offers extensive interactive features for users who have sophisticated DVD authoring needs.

"While our Apollo Expert DVDer works great for the majority of our customers, some require the features offered by DVDVirtuoso," said Dr. Ash Pahwa, DV Studio chief executive officer. "Now our customers have a choice of prices and features."

Key features of the Apollo Expert DVDer/DVDVirtuoso bundle include importable video streams NTSC/PAL (MPEG2 and MPEG1); importable audio streams (48Khz/LPCM 16bit, AC-3: 1, 2, 5.1 ch. and MPEG-1 audio); a built-in subtitle generator; a built-in menu editor; 10 menus per project; a drag/drop button to timeline; navigation simulation and title emulation; region coding (all regions); DVD, DVDR and DLT write; DLT verify; Photoshop(TM) file import; chapter points (99); general markers; movies (1); concatenation and undo.

The bundle runs under Windows NT 4.0 and is available for $2,995 MSRP. A special upgrade is also available for current Apollo Expert DVDer users.

JoAnn Motz, DV Studio vice president of sales, said: "This product really rounds out DV Studio's authoring solution line. For users requiring more features than the Apollo Expert DVDer provides by itself, the DVDVirtuoso bundle is truly a cost-effective step up."

The Apollo Expert DVDer is a single-board MPEG-2 encoding and playback solution for desktops. It captures video and audio from any video source in real time, and converts it into MPEG-2 quality video and digital audio formats. This highly compressed MPEG-2 file can then be used in any digital domain such as DVD, DVD-ROM, Super VCD, Internet or broadcast.

The Apollo Expert DVDer carries an MSRP of $1,995. A Software Developers Kit is available for OEM customers who want to tailor the Apollo Expert DVDer for specialized applications.
