|Announcing BRONZE - The $99 DVD-Audio Tool
For the first time, consumers can easily write their own high-resolution DVD-A’s for under $100.
Minnetonka Audio Software is proud to announce the release of discWelder™ BRONZE, a basic DVD-Audio authoring program that allows consumers and prosumers to deliver surround and high-resolution audio on DVD-Recordable media, at the unprecedented price of $99. With discWelder BRONZE, the user can import all Linear PCM formats supported in the DVD-Audio specification, including surround (up to 6 channels of 24-bit, 48kHz audio) and high-resolution stereo (two channels of 24-bit, 192kHz audio). Surround and stereo tracks may be used on the same disc, in WAV or AIFF file format, and discWelder-burned media will play on any DVD-A player that supports DVD±R/W. The Windows-based program is brilliantly simple to use, and can burn DVD-Audio discs utilizing inexpensive DVD±R/W drives.
Minnetonka’s discWelder BRONZE offers hi-res DVD-Audio disc writing at a category-defining price, and will be shipping in March 2004.
discWelder BRONZE Features:
· Supports Linear PCM formats: 16- and 24-bit depth; 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192kHz sample rates (Stereo); 44.1, 48kHz (5.1 Surround); WAV or AIFF files
· Supports Intermixed Surround and Stereo (PCM only) Tracks
· Multiple DVD±R/W Burner Support
· 1 Group with up to 99 Tracks
· Drag-and Drop or Double-Click Soundfile Placement
· Downmix Properties Preset to Industry Standards
System Requirements – Windows 98/2000/NT/XP with 10 GB free hard disc space and supported DVD±R/W drive.
Sorry about the blatant plug here, but you will very soon be able to author DVD-Audio discs, albeit cut down & not full spec, for under $100.
If it is even close to the Flagship application - Chrome - in ease of use, this one will sell by the bucketload!
Extremely simple to use.
