Ulead Systems, a Taiwan-based imaging, video and web graphics software company, along with Panasonic announced that the Ulead DVD Plug-in will support Panasonicís new 4.7GB combination DVD-RAM/R drive, the DVDBurner.
Uleadís DVD Plug-in already gives users of both Ulead VideoStudio 5.0, a consumer video-editing solution, and Ulead MediaStudio Pro 6.0, a prosumer video-editing package, the ability to use CD-burners to record VCD, SVCD, and DVD titles on CD-media without any additional software.
By adding support for the DVDBurner, users of Ulead video-editing software will now have the additional option of producing content in the DVD format to be burned onto DVD-R discs using Panasonicís combination DVD-RAM/R drive. With Panasonicís DVDBurner, Ulead customers can record to rewritable DVD-RAM media for random-access editing and to secure write-once DVD-R general media for playback on most new DVD players and DVD-ROM sets.
Compatibility with the Panasonic DVDBurner has already been implemented in the North America-only version of Ulead VideoStudio 5.0 DVD edition. For other Ulead DVD Plug-in users, a free update can be downloaded from the Ulead website.
