Software Architects announced its release of BlueDisk Driver v1.0 for Apple systems running OS X 10.4.
BlueDisk Driver enables both Intel and PowerPC based Apple computer systems to format, read and write to re-writable Blu-ray discs using the standard Mac Finder interface, including "drag & drop" writing to disc. Discs are formatted in standard Apple HFS+ format for readability on an any driver equipped Apple system. The native Mac OS does not support Blu-ray disc drives or BD-RE media.
With 25 GBytes of capacity available, video enthusiasts no longer have to spend time compressing their favorite video files into MPEG-2 to fit on a single optical disc. Record video files in any Apple QuickTime compatible video format and play them using Apple's QuickTime Movie Player. The BD-RE disc is formatted as a data disc so users do not have to go through the time consuming process of creating a DVD Video format disc for play back on their Mac systems.
SAI's Blu-ray Driver will be available 15 June 2007, priced at
