Sonopress produces first 3x DVD-ROM

Sonopress’ North Carolina, USA facility has successfully mastered and replicated the first 3x DVD-ROM . 3x DVD-ROM is a variant of DVD-ROM, allowing for HD video and UDF 2.5 on the DVD format. 3x DVD-ROM discs are played back in HD DVD players.

The title was produced through a partnership with Sonic Solutions and using Doug Carson & Associates’ MIS 8.5 DVD formatter. Several manufacturers are looking to 3x DVD-ROM as a low cost entry into the HD video market.

DCA’s MIS 8.5 DVD formatter software includes full support for standard DVD formats, as well as 3x DVD-ROM, including AACS and media marks necessary for the 3x variant.

In other developments, Sonopress has purchased a distribution facility in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, previously operated by Deluxe Media. The 535,000 square foot facility, located several miles north of Chicago, IL, significantly expands upon Sonopress’ full service integrated supply chain offering and makes Sonopress one of the largest companies in the U.S. capable of providing media manufacturing, packaging and distribution capabilities.

Sonopress will take ownership of the facility on 1 April 2007.
