Amsterdam, The Netherlands (September 16, 2002) Sonic Solutions [NASDAQ: SNIC], the world leader in DVD creation systems, announced today that it has begun shipments of ReelDVD Version 3.0.1. Designed for the booming authoring community focused on corporate, in-house, multimedia, event videography, and independent productions, Sonic ReelDVD Version 3.0.1 extends the limits of entry-level professional DVD creation by providing full-stream support for audio and expanded subtitles integrated with the Hollywood-standard Sonic Scenarist DVD engine.

“We originally chose Sonic ReelDVD for its ease of use, professional features, and reputation for creating highly-compatible DVDs ,” said Chip Eberhart, Owner of High Level Productions in Chicago, Illinois. “Now, ReelDVD 3.0.1 provides us even more flexibility to reach a wider audience and expand our business.”

Sonic ReelDVD provides many advantages for the entry-level professional DVD author. Based on the same technology used in Sonic Scenarist, the DVD creation standard of Hollywood DVD production studios, ReelDVD delivers the maximum level of DVD player compatibility that has become the foundation of the commercial DVD release industry. Sonic ReelDVD offers an intuitive user experience designed to provide creative professionals, corporate in-house video and independent videographers with a powerful pallet of essential tools to make compelling DVDs. ReelDVD Version 3.0.1 also features output to the latest selection of DVD-Recordable devices including DVDR/RW and DVD+R/RW, DVD-RAM, CDR/RW, and DLT. And ReelDVD provides a powerful migration path permitting video facilities to move easily to the more sophisticated Sonic Scenarist as their needs increase, or to move projects started in ReelDVD to Scenarist for polishing and finishing.
