Ulead BD software products include:
Ulead DVD MovieFactory(TM) software with BD support enables users to quickly and easily carry out the complete post-production movie process including editing, authoring, burning, backup and, if desired, content protection.
Ulead BD Direct Disc Recorder captures content from HDV camcorders as well as DVB-T or ATSC HDTV tuners and records the content directly to a BD-R or BD-RE disc in the BDAV format via UDF2.5. The new software provides a fast, easy way to capture HDV, DVB-T and ATSC content as MPEG-2 video and can even be used to append data to open media.
