Sonic, Technicolor produce first interactive BD and HD DVD discs

Sonic Solutions and Technicolor have announced the production of the world’s first replicated discs utilising the advanced interactive modes of the Blu-ray Disc (BD) and HD DVD formats.

Highlighting the real-world capabilities of Sonic-developed tools available to members of Sonic’s High Definition Authoring Alliance (HDAA), the titles were authored at Technicolor Creative Services’ DVD authoring facility in Burbank using Sonic Scenarist HD DVD Edition and Scenarist Blu-ray Edition high-definition authoring workstations.

The titles were then optically mastered by Eclipse Data Technologies and replicated by Technicolor Home Entertainment Services in Camarillo, California.

The Technicolor-produced titles are being showcased at HD DVD and Blu-ray demonstrations during CES.

The first title features the recently re-mastered documentary Chronos by award-winning director Ron Fricke. The title is being displayed in both hi-def formats at the show. A second title, also created in BD and HD DVD versions, is DTS Alive, a CES presentation for DTS. (source: 4rft)
