This application allows owners of Blu-ray Disc recorders to capture high-definition video from their HDV camcorders, and burn it to high-capacity Blu-ray discs in full-resolution HD video (BDAV Format). A single-layer 25GB disc can contain nearly 2 hours of full-quality HD video, and can be played on a set-top Blu-ray player, or on a PC with appropriate hardware and software.
Ulead's Burn.Now 4.0 module offers a complete set of CD and DVD disc burning tools. Users can use Span Disc to archive the contents of large folders to multiple DVDs, directly copy discs, or create bootable discs.
Burn.Now 4.0 also offers users a whole new set tools to create music discs. Multiple albums, or long-running concerts, can be burned on to a single DVD in audiophile-quality DVD-Audio format or as audio-only DVD-Video discs. Before burning their audio DVDs or CDs, users can improve the sound quality with various filters and effects, including Click and Hiss Removal for music recorded from tape or vinyl.
Users can capture video from any source, including DV or HDV camcorders, HDTV or standard definition DVB-T digital broadcasts, or VCRs. Updated camcorder support now includes the Sanyo Xacti HD-1.
