Zootech claims that DVD-Extra will play on any standard, set-top consumer DVD player.
The application supports the full DVD-Video specification, including 99 menus, eight audio streams, and 32 subpicture streams. It supports motion menus, both PAL and NTSC video in 4:3 and 16:9 formats, and region coding and CSS copy protection – as well as offering graphics access to 16 GPRMs.
DVD-Extra Studio features an internal MPEG-2 encoder, with interfaces to third-party software and hardware encoders and support for Audio in Dolby Digital AC3 Stereo, or as 96kHz PCM. The software also features interfaces to Macromedia Flash and Director.
DVD-Extra Studio is available for Windows only. Although the software is free, under the licensing scheme producers will be charged 0.5 Euros (around 33p) for each commercial disc produced.
