Roxio Creator 7 OEM with DVD+R DL Capabilities Now Available Along with Update for Retail Customers
April 27, 2004 - Roxio, Inc.; Consumers wishing to explore the next wave in DVD burning technology need look no further than Roxio’s comprehensive digital media suite, Roxio Creator 7. Roxio today released a downloadable update to its best-selling suite that will immediately enable DVD Double Layer (DL) data burning capabilities and allow consumers to nearly double the amount of valuable personal data they can record to a single DVD +R DL disc.
“By an overwhelming margin, consumers are selecting Roxio Creator 7 as the best way to explore the world of digital media,” said Tom Shea, president of Roxio. “Our tradition of thoughtfully implementing new and important technologies continues with the enhancement of our burning engine and recording technology to make double layer burning a trouble free and rewarding experience.”
Roxio Creator 7 is the perfect complement to drive manufacturers’ double layer solutions, bringing rich capabilities, powerful technology and an intuitive approach to the dual layer recording process. Several major hardware partners are currently evaluating Roxio Creator 7 OEM edition with double layer support.
For retail customers, double layer data burning capabilities are available immediately through the Roxio Updater, which automatically connects via the Internet to Roxio’s support site and informs customers when updates are available for download. Support for double layer video authoring for retail versions of Roxio Creator 7 will be released in the near future.
Rich Double Layer Burning Capabilities
Creator Classic: Data backup and audio disc creation component enables consumers to store up to 8.5 GB of data on a single DVD disc, which could include important documents and files such as users’ email database, spreadsheets, Word documents, or an estimated 2000 songs.
Drag-to-Disc: Packet-writing utility allows consumers to burn directly to a double layer DVD disc as simply and conveniently as dragging and dropping files over a desktop disc icon.
