Ulead Unveils DVD Workshop Express
Posted Aug 3, 2004

Ulead Systems introduced DVD Workshop Express, advanced DVD authoring software for corporate users and video hobbyists. DVD Workshop Express gives prosumers the design-centric workflow of DVD Workshop 2.2, without the high-end DVD replication technology that only professionals require, the company reports.

DVD Workshop Express makes it possible to encode any video format to high-quality MPEG. Include alternate music, languages, and commentaries in DVD projects with two subtitle and audio tracks including support for Dolby Digital AC-3. Design intricate menu navigations by creating Playlists to link a sequence of movies, menus, and chapter points to buttons. Mix image and video content to create motion DVD menu compositions and preview in real-time. Create customized DVD menus in PhotoImpact, Ulead's flagship image editing software, and import them directly into DVD Workshop Express. Burn the final production to dual-layer DVDs for longer or higher-quality DVD projects.

DVD Workshop Express is currently available for $299 and will be available soon via North American video resellers.
