Media 100 and its subsidiaries Terran Interactive and Wired Interactive have released details of two technologies and a partnership that should boost the companies' profile in the DVD market.
Terran has announced that the next version of Media Cleaner Pro will include Sonic Solution's AuthorScript technology. This will allow the compression and web streaming authoring suite to write video content straight to DVD.
Wired has launched the MediaPress Suite for Media 100's eponymous Mac-based editing solution. This allows realtime MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video to be encoded in realtime. A realtime preview during encoding is also possible - as is MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and DVD video playback.
MediaPress Suite can take input video as in Composite, S-video and Composite formats - but can also work with SDI, AES/EBU and S/PDIF digital audio using an SDI add-on from Media 100.
Media 100 has also launched iCanStream.com. This is a Web site launched in partnership with Canon, Beatnik, Digital Fridge to educate home users about how to create streaming video. Alongside this Digital Origin, who are currently merging with Media 100, has released FreeDV.
