Roxio has released DVDit Pro HD, the latest version of the company’s DVD authoring software, for £399 plus VAT. The new version makes it possible for video professionals to create high-definition Blu-ray Disc (BD) movies on their PC for the first time.

DVDit Pro HD offers an intuitive user interface and straightforward workflow that makes it easy for event and corporate videographers to achieve professional results with minimum effort, according to Roxio. For independent filmmakers and post-production facilities, DVDit Pro HD includes a number of features such as a 32-track subtitle editor, support for DLT and CMF and content copy protection.

The software enables authors deliver 1080p, 1080i or 720p output on writable or replicated Blu-ray Discs. DVDit Pro HD transcodes high-definition MPEG-2, AVI, QuickTime and Windows Media Video into Blu-ray Disc-compatible video.

Content producers can build 1080p, 1080i or 720p still or motion menus from scratch with the product’s built-in HD Menu Compositor. Users can also import HD menus created in Adobe Photoshop or modify the application’s pre-built HD templates.

Authors can take advantage of Blu-ray Disc’s disc capacity and high maximum bit rate by using DVDit Pro HD’s movie timeline, which can include as many as eight uncompressed PCM audio tracks and 32 smooth rendered subtitle tracks per movie.
