InterVideo, Inc. has announced the release of its latest version of InterVideo DiscMaster 2 Gold and Platinum, a burning application that creates a CD or DVD in three steps: select source, target, and burn. In addition to creating backups of CDs, users can also transfer multiple audio tracks including MP3, WAV, or WMA from a music CD to a hard disc.
New to the latest version of DiscMaster 2 is an Over Burn feature that allows users to shorten CD-R lead-out area that gives a little extra room to burn oversized data. DiscMaster 2 has a broad compatibility and supports a variety of output media: CD-R/RW, DVD±R/RW, DVD-RAM, or hard drive.
DiscMaster 2 also incorporates a simplified interface and a step-by-step wizard that guides users along when they are creating CDs and DVDs. Included in DiscMaster 2 are the Enhanced, Mixed Mode, and Bootable CD features. Other new features include DVD Dual-Layer support and Disc Copy in which consumers can make bit-for-bit copies of a CD/DVD to which they own the copyrights.
Exclusive to DiscMaster 2 Platinum, the Disc Label feature gives users the option of personalizing their CD or DVD by creating their own CD/DVD labels. Users can choose from several designs and images to give their CDs a "professional" look. Also integrated in the Platinum edition is the InterVideo Direct CD/DVD, which allows customers to use a packet-writing tool for drag and drop recording.
Compatible with Windows 2000 and XP systems, the suggested list prices are $29.95 for the Gold version and $49.95 for the Platinum version.
