Demonstration at CES 2004 shows enhanced version of neoSTUDIOT with VR standard DVD recording and television program recording capable neoTVT.
SAN JOSE, CA (January 6, 2004) - MedioStream, a leading provider of PC -based consumer software for recording video to DVDs, today announced that it has included television recording capabilities in its neoSTUDIO software suite to allow users that have a PC configured to display television programming to record their favorite shows to hard disk or directly to DVD.
The addition of neoTV allows straightforward TV watching and recording using a PC without complications:
· Watch TV full screen or use a custom size footprint for watching TV while working;
· Schedule programs for recording to hard disk drive or DVD;
· Record to hard disk drive in MPEG -1 or MPEG -2 format for editing later; and,
· Record direct to DVD or CD for storage of favorite programs.
MedioStream will also preview an all -new version of its popular neoDVD software. The latest release includes enhanced support to enable interoperability between discs created with neoDVD and those created with set -top DVD recorders by adding support for DVD -RW/RAM Video Recording support. Now neoDVD users will be able to edit and otherwise alter the content of DVDs created by any commercially available stand -alone DVD recorders.
The industry -standard Video Recording (VR) format allows users to create DVD video discs that can be edited. A DVD produced in VR format allows users to add new video content, change menu backgrounds, insert chapters, split video clips and even remove unwanted video segments without needing to change to a different disk.
"We are very excited about the release of neoDVD version 6.0. MedioStream now fully supports both DVD+RW VR and DVD -RAM/ -RW VR, and for the first time, users will now be able to use their DVD burner - regardless of format -to perform similar functions as the high -end DVD recorders at a much lower cost while retaining the flexibility a PC provides." Said Stephane Desproges, Director of Engineering at MedioStream.
Additional changes in the latest release of neoDVD include an updated, streamlined user interface, improved workflow, as well as SVCD support.
The new 'VR' features in neoSTUDIO to be previewed at CES 2004 including:
· " -VR" capabilities for DVD -RW/RAM - -edit disks created on commercially available DVD -RW/RAM DVD Recorders including full program and playlist support;
· Enhanced compatibility for "+VR" for DVD+RW/+R - -edit discs created on commercially available DVD+RW/+R DVD Recorders;
· Full compatibility and interoperability of both formats due to industry standard implementation;
· Introduction of SVCD support, now providing DVD, VCD and SVCD; and,
· New streamlined user interface and workflow, makes what was already easy to use even easier.
