Software Architects announces Blu-Ray disc file system developer toolkit


Software Architects announced the commercial release of its Blu-ray Disc File System developer toolkit for MS Windows.. Targeted at developers of video and data storage applications, version 1.0 provides developers with an easy to use API to the file system and related formatting code.

The toolkit makes it easy for application developers to format media to the Blu-ray File System format, read, write, append and erase files and handle all operations required to support removable optical media in Windows environments. The toolkit API includes over 100 calls to the file system and formatter.

Targeted at next generation Blue Laser optical discs, the toolkit supports most removable media types, including recordable DVD.

The Blu-ray Disc Founders Group specifies Blu-ray Disc File System format files for use on new high capacity video recorders that use “blue laser” writing technology. Most blue laser based high capacity consumer video recorders are expected to use this format, which is optimized for handling future high definition digital video broadcasts and recordings.

This format is completely different than the UDF format currently used on all DVD video disks and recordable DVD media. Until now, there has been no practical development tool available for software developers to use, read and write Blu-ray Disc media on a PC.

Just as recordable DVD drives have become widely adopted on personal computers to provide a means of playing, editing and mastering UDF format DVD video discs, the company expects very high capacity Blu-ray Disc drives to become widely adopted on PC’s for similar purposes. The company expects this category to grow starting in 2004.

Systems Support:

Supports all Intel Pentium or later PC systems running Windows 98, Me, 2000, or XP. 128 Mbytes RAM required; 256 Mbytes recommended. 5 Mbytes free hard disk space.

Compliant with Industry Standards

Blu-ray Disc File System Developer Toolkit is compliant with Blu-ray Founders Group published Blu-ray Disc File System specification v1.0.

Pricing & Availability

Developer License Pricing starts at $15,000.00 US. Support for Win 98 & ME available in July 2003. Win 2000 & XP support available in August 2003.
