Sonic has announced that it is working with Sony to enhance the BD-Live
creation features found in Scenarist BD. By making it easier for Hollywood to create BD-Live-enabled features, the two companies hope to
increase the availability of connected-content.
Sonic Solutions (NASDAQ: SNIC), the leader in digital media software,
today announced it is collaborating with Sony to enhance the BD-Live creation features of the Scenarist BD authoring platform. The new
capabilities will help streamline the creation of highly interactive Blu-ray Disc titles that harness the full power of the BD-Live
feature set to enable Web-connected content.
BD-Live adds an exciting new level of interactivity to the home entertainment
experience. By allowing the dynamic inclusion of downloaded online content such as special features, new trailers and games, BD-Live
enables content creators to maintain a direct relationship with viewers even after a title has shipped. By making BD-Live-enabled
features more efficient to produce, the Sony and Sonic collaboration is expected to help increase the availability of connected-content,
which in turn will help speed consumer adoption of next-generation titles and players.
