Sonic released today Scenarist BD 4.5, a major upgrade to the company's professional Blu-ray Disc creation solution.
The new version features expanded capabilities for the creation of BD-J titles, which fuse Java-programmed applications to enable the integration of high-definition audio and video with advanced interactivity. Numerous workflow enhancements were added to speed title creation, and the software package also includes Sonic's new Scenarist Safeguard tool for setting security parameters on BD-J content. Scenarist BD 4.5 began shipping at the start of April and is on show at Sonic's Booth (SL8020) at NAB, running April 14 through the 17 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The BD-J enhancements in Scenarist BD 4.5 include a new BD-J project creation wizard, a new user interface supporting drag-and-drop application creation, the Scenarist Safeguard security tool, and all-new BD-J tutorials. Scenarist BD 4.5 also enables faster project completion, BD+ content protection support, and distributed multiplexing.
