Ulead Systems announces DVD Workshop 2, the next version of its
professional DVD authoring software.
With DVD Workshop 2, Ulead maintains this straightforward,
design-centric workflow, while offering more professional DVD
authoring features for creating compelling DVDs for worldwide
distribution. These features include multiple subtitle and audio
tracks, playlists and professional output with support for
Digital Linear Tape (DLT) and dual layer DVDs (DVD-9).
DVD Workshop 2 lets users include alternate music, languages, and
commentaries in DVD projects with multiple audio and subtitle
tracks. Playlist creation enables professionals to link a
sequence of assets -- movies, menus, and chapter points -- to
buttons without duplicating assets. This saves disc space and
allows for intricate menu navigation. Replicating DVD titles is
now possible with DVD Workshop 2's support for Digital Linear
Tape (DLT), along with dual layer DVDs (DVD-9) for replicating
discs with double the capacity for large projects. This new
version also offers copyright protection with support for
Macrovision and CSS formats, as well as region coding to control
which geographic region can view DVD titles.
New features include eight multiple audio and 32 subtitle tracks
for creating DVDs with different languages, music tracks,
commentaries, subtitles, programming, and other messaging.
Enhanced audio features give users the ability to control menu
and audio track volume, with fade-in and out options, as well as
encode (2 channel) and decode (5.1 channel) Dolby® AC-3 audio
