Sony Electronics today announced the compatibility of the DVA-1100 DVD Authoring System with Daikin’s Scenarist NT™, Sonic Solution’s DVD Creator™, and Spruce Technologies’ DVDMaestro™ systems, which should help substantially to make the system more attractive to a broad range of producers.
The DVA-1100 allows facilities that already have an investment in authoring systems to improve their picture quality, using Sony’s MPEG-2 encoding
technology, as well as offering added flexibility of a high quality video stream to facilities interested in entering the DVD market in the future.
Sony’s DVA-1100 DVD Authoring System includes the capability to export MPEG-2 encoded video that has been compressed using the DVA-V1100
Video Encoder for use in other, non-Sony, authoring packages that customers may already be using. By providing these capabilities, Sony allows facilities that
already have an investment in authoring systems to improve the picture quality they can provide at a cost comparable to other high-end encoders.
