Thanks nekrosoft13 for this. Adobe Systems is expanding its line of multimedia management products to include Encore DVD, a Windows tool for high-end DVD authoring. The new program, unveiled at the National Association of Broadcasters show here, is scheduled to ship in the third quarter.
With Encore DVD, you can edit a video, create menus, and then use a rewritable DVD drive to burn it onto a DVD disc. With its $549 price tag, however, Encore DVD is aimed squarely at high-end and professional users who already work with video but want to output their productions to DVD as well as video tape. It won't compete with products such as DVD Movie Factory 2 or MyDVD that target home and casual users.
Many other companies have already launched DVD authoring products to accompany rewritable DVD drives, which have been dropping in price; you can now pick up a rewritable DVD drive for just over $200.
"Adobe Encore DVD opens the door for video professionals to take advantage of powerful DVD features and deliver their video projects in the format embraced by both consumers and professionals," says Bryan Lamkin, senior vice president of digital imaging and video products at Adobe Systems.
