Also Introduces Pro Version Packed with Advanced Photo, Video, and Audio Capabilities
5 January 2009 — Roxio®, a division of Sonic Solutions®, the leader in digital media software, today announced the immediate availability of Toast® 10 Titanium, the latest version of the company’s market-leading burning and digital media software for the Mac®. The latest version helps greatly enhance and extend Mac OS X and iLife® applications with a broad range of additional capabilities for creating, sharing, and enjoying personal digital media content.
Toast 10 delivers groundbreaking digital media functionality to Mac users with a range of pioneering features that includes: an audiobook creator for converting audiobook CDs into files compatible with portable devices; AVCHD™Archive for quickly backing up original content from high-definition camcorders onto DVD or Blu-ray Disc (BD); Mac2TiVo for sending home movies and other video content from a Mac to a TiVo® DVR; and a Web video file capture and conversion tool that allows Web-based video to be enjoyed on DVD or mobile devices. Toast 10 Titanium is available today at www.roxio.co.uk and at Macworld Expo, San Francisco, booth 2238.
“Toast is far more than better burning on Mac OS; it’s about enabling users to manage, create, enjoy and simply do more with their personal library of digital photos, music, and video,” said Vito Salvaggio, vice president of consumer products, Sonic Solutions. “This latest version will have special appeal to consumers that want to easily move digital media between their Mac and digital devices such as the iPhone® or enjoy Web-based video content offline.”
New in Toast 10 Titanium:
- AVCHD™ Archive – Backup original video from AVCHD camcorders direct to DVD or BD media in one easy step. Use the discs in BD players or as source materials in future iMovie or Toast projects.
- Web Video To Go – Save Web video from your favorite video sharing sites to view offline, burn or convert it for viewing on portable players such as an iPod or iPhone.
- On-the-go Entertainment – Stream and watch television programs, such as EyeTV recordings on your iPhone or iPod touch over Wi-Fi with the new iPhone native application Streamer®.
- Portable Audiobooks – Convert audiobook CDs into single audiobook files for playback on your iPod or other portable player– complete with individual chapters – no more individual audiobook chapter files scattered throughout your iTunes library or iPod.
- Music Builder – Expand your audio library by capturing streaming audio. Toast now automatically splits captured songs into tracks, tags them with title and artist information, and then sends them to iTunes.
- Folder Sync – Synchronize folders bi-directionally between multiple computers, network volumes or external hard disks.
