World’s First DVD-Audio Authoring Systems
Sonic Solutions has announced the Phase 1 release of the world’s first complete DVD-Audio authoring systems, Sonic DVD AV Workstation and OneClick DVD.

The new systems represent an exciting and unique addition to the SonicStudio HD product line that is designed to easily handle the requirements of the new audio formats such as DVD-Audio.

DVD-Audio is the next-generation consumer audio format that extends the successful DVD-Video format into a high-quality musical experience. DVD-Audio enhances consumer audio with 24-bit, uncompressed digital audio at high-resolution sampling rates of 96kHz and 192kHz, and surrounds listeners with the realism of multi-channel High-Density Audio.

It also provides an interactive interface for the listener, such as real-time text, on-screen slide shows graphics, menus, and integrated digital video.

“DVD-Audio is the most exciting format for both music artists and listeners,” said Ed Outwater, vice-president of Technical and Engineering Services at Warner Music Group. “Sonic Solutions combines their DVD format experience and know-how to deliver pioneering products that stimulate the creative process for our artists.”
