SunnComm Announces New Hybrid DVD/CD


SunnComm's new patent-pending format "DVCD" allows storing CD content on DVDs. The technology is claimed to be a more affordable solution for storing music, graphics together with DVD video content, compared with competitive DualDisc or DVDPlus solutions.

"The widespread use of MediaMax on commercial music CDs from the world's top-selling artists is a testament to the acceptance of our technology by the entertainment industry as well as CD buyers," declared Peter Jacobs, president of SunnComm. "Building on that leadership position, SunnComm has developed a pioneering new format called DVCD (DVD+CD)."

"This new commercial home entertainment product and technological breakthrough will give the record labels and their artists, movie and TV studios, concert producers, music video directors and home entertainment distributors added opportunities when vying for the consumers' entertainment dollar. DVCD, developed by SunnComm International, is currently undergoing testing and will allow DVD authors to include full-fidelity CD music and other related video and graphic digital content within their DVD projects or titles without requiring the more expensive alternatives such as DualDisc, (alternatively DVDPlus) technology or the need to include an additional physical CD in the package along with the DVD."

The competitive DualDisc technology is also hybrid format of optical media composed of a CD side and a DVD side. The CD side of every DualDisc contains full-length audio album while the DVD side can include exclusive features such as enhanced sound (i.e 5.1 Surround Sound or LPCM stereo), music vieos, photo galleries, lyrics and more. DualDiscs can be used on CD and DVD hardware devicessuch as DVD players, car stereos, OCs, game consoles etc.

Unlike to DualDisc, the SunnComm's DVCD disc is not dual-sided. It allows users to listen to CD content included within the DVD just as if they had an actual CD inserted into their computer. The product includes SunnComm's SecureBurn, which allows users to legally burn a protected and enhanced music CD on their PC or Mac directly from a menu included on their DVD. Consumers can also choose to transfer the CD content to compliant portable digital devices.

The CD content stored using the DVCD format can include movie soundtracks and other bonus music, video or audio content. Because this information is stored on the DVD as an encrypted binary collection of data, it is claimed to be more secure.
