Sony Develops BD-ROM Authoring Service.

Tokyo, Japan, Jan 24, 2007 - (JCN) - Sony PCL Inc. launched the Advanced Video Codec (AVC) encoder and the Blu-ray Disc (BD) authoring service. The AVC encoder and authoring system uses the H.264/MPEG-4 format and has twice the compression of conventional MPEG-2 encoding, meaning you can burn more hours of high-definition movies, and sounds great with Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD, and DTS-HD audio.

The AVC encoder and authoring system support the Blue-ray Disc Association's Blue-ray-java (BD-J) specifications and take advantage of Blue-ray's benefits, including built-in interactive menus and applications.

In addition, Sony PCL intends to provide comprehensive content production service, from disk manufacturing to packaging, to the BD market. The BD-ROM encoder and authoring system will be available from April 2007.
