SAN JOSE, Calif., July 10 /PRNewswire/ — MedioStream, a leading provider of PC-based software for recording video to DVDs and CDs, will demonstrate its DVD+RW Video Recording (DVD+VR) support for DVD+RW recordable drives at the DVD+RW Alliance Asia Pacific Seminar, to be held in Tokyo, Japan on July 10, 2002. Along with its patent-pending “Direct-to-Disc Recording” and “Smart Buffering” features, DVD+VR support catapults MedioStream into the lead among DVD authoring solutions for the DVD+RW format.
Sponsors of the DVD+RW Alliance seminar in Asia Pacific include Dell Computer, Hewlett-Packard, Mitsubishi Chemical/Verbatim, Ricoh, Royal Philips Electronics, Sony, THOMSON Multimedia, and Yamaha. A key theme of the seminar is to showcase the progress that the DVD+RW/+R format has made in the convergence of PC and consumer electronics. With MedioStream’s neoDVD software, consumers can create a DVD, add or delete clips and re-burn the video onto the same disc, without having to recreate or burn another disc. Users no longer have to buy multiple DVDs to save their favorite TV shows, movies or home video footage.
“With all the excitement surrounding DVDs, MedioStream is committed to bridging the gap between the PC and consumer electronics devices,” said Gordon Doran, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MedioStream. “With neoDVD, consumers can be assured of greater interoperability, whether it be burning their own DVDs on their PC, adding video clips using DVD set-top recorders, or showing the finished disc on TV.”
“With MedioStream’s neoDVD, we will show DVD+VR on the PC platform using the Ricoh DVD+RW/+R burner, then we will add video clips to the same disc using the Yamaha DVD+RW/+R Recorder,” said Hiroshi Kondo, IT Marketing Manager, Yamaha Corporation. “The technology is certainly exciting, but we think what consumers will really appreciate is the ease with which all this can be accomplished using neoDVD.”
MedioStream’s neoDVDstandard is currently bundled with leading DVD+RW/+R drive manufacture’s products. The DVD+VR support feature will join MedioStream’s “Direct-to-Disc Recording” and “Smart Buffering” as standard features in neoDVD, starting with neoDVDstandard 4.0 (MSRP $29.99 for ESD and $39.99 for CD) and neoDVDplus 4.0 (MSRP $49.99 for ESD and $59.99 for CD), both of which will be commercially available in August.
