Fast, Easy, Integrated Solution for Creating Audio, Data, Video CDs & DVDs;
HANNOVER, Germany; March 12, 2003 – Focused on providing a single, easy-to-use solution for burning and playing both DVDs and CDs, NewTech Infosystems, Inc. (NTI) unveiled its new NTI DVD-Maker software here this week at CeBIT, Hall 20; Booth C11. With the powerful new CD and DVD creation software, users can store data files, organize digital photos, enhance their music collection, and create a video library of DVDs as well as Video CD (VCD) and Super Video CDs (SVCDs).
NTI DVD-Maker provides format flexibility, allowing users to switch formats and capacities without having to purchase and learn multiple software packages. NTI DVD-Maker supports the DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+RW formats and is compatible with all of the new high-speed DVD and CD recorders. With support for the latest high-performance DVD drives and CD writers, DVD-Maker can record a feature-length video to a DVD disc in about 15 minutes, a full CD in less than two minutes.
In developing the new CD/DVD burning software, NTI combined advanced audio and video capabilities with an EasySteps® graphical user interface that makes creating high-quality CDs and DVDs a simple point and click process.
The comprehensive set of audio features enable users to create their own custom audio CDs from MP3, WMA, CDDA or wave files. These capabilities are further enhanced with on-the-fly multi-track volume balancing, enhanced MP3 encoder/decoder support, and an audio wave editor.
For multimedia and video enthusiasts, NTI DVD-Maker offers on-the-fly AVI to MPEG-1/2 conversion, VCD/SVCD SlideShow and VCD/SVCD Menus. With the VCD/SVCD SlideShow, users can add music tracks to their photos to create entertaining slide shows that can be viewed on compliant DVD players. Users also have the option of making their video CDs more robust by adding single-level menus.
To give their CDs and DVDs a more professional look, NTI DVD-Maker includes an enhanced version of NTI’s JewelCase Maker. In addition to providing a broad range of background templates for creating CD and jewel case Inserts, JewelCase Maker now supports Curved Text for CD labels.
“The added value of being able to use a single, integrated solution to burn both CDs and DVDs, plus the extensive list of features provide strong selling points," said Bill Yao, President and CEO of NTI. "But what really sets NTI DVD-Maker apart from the competition is it combines all of these capabilities while being extremely easy to use. NTI DVD-Maker delivers all of the features power users want while hiding the complexity, so even first-time users will be proud of the results they can achieve. We call it 'Power with Simplicity,'" he explained.
