Posted Nov 2, 2004

DVD-EXTRA STUDIO is a DVD-Video development system that enables DVD authors and multimedia developers to create complex, interactive DVDs easily and cost effectively, according to ZOOTECH. The 15 original members of the DVD-EXTRA Developer Alliance have all mastered DVD-EXTRA STUDIO and will deliver these development services globally from studios in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, France, and Benelux. Alliance members have developed a wide range of highly interactive products, from children's educational products to games, from marketing and promotional material to enhanced Hollywood movie bonus features.

DVD-EXTRA STUDIO removes the productivity obstacles previously associated with developing interactive DVD entertainment. As members of the DVD-EXTRA Developer Alliance, DVD authoring studios are introduced to revolutionary technology and methods that permit the development of DVD-Video entertainment. DVD-EXTRA STUDIO allows developers to unleash their creativity to generate CD-ROM-style interactivity in the DVD-Video format. No new consumer hardware is required since this interactive DVD-EXTRA content is designed to play on any set-top DVD player. DVD-EXTRA STUDIO also permits the republishing of existing titles and projects on DVD-Video with the added value of interactivity.
