There is no doubt anymore about the fact that the Blu-Ray technology is very important nowadays, being able to store way more information that a normal DVD or a Dual DVD. Lots of developers release every month programs for playing BDs, burning data on discs, breaking digital copyright or copy information for back up. Well, if you search for something like that, look no further.
A company well known for its products developed one of those applications and trust me, it is worthy to try it. The software is called Sony DVD Architect Studio and allows users to play home movies, multimedia photo albums and music compilations. The application features a big library of menus, special features and custom tracks and is able to create professional-looking discs.
Basic and advanced processes can all start from a simple drag and drop. The interface and design are sleek, nice and modern, but although everything is clearly displayed, Sony DVD Architect Studio 2011 might be a bit too difficult to use for a beginner. View other Blu Ray Burning Software apps.
The basic menu structure can be found on the left hand side of the navigation. Right clicking will also provide additional menu choices. It may take few days to get used to this application, but once you get past the learning curve, Sony DVD Architect Studio 2011 will prove to be a powerful tool which is easy to use.
The program comes with a lot of support. Besides the tutorials coming with the application, you can also find support on Sony’s official webpage. You can contact the company by e-mail and phone, but also by live chat between specific hours.
Sony DVD Architect Studio is an editing application too, which also includes the latest release of Dolby Digital audio encoding. Though this doesn’t really improve the quality of the audio output, it frees up capacity for more video thanks to its lower bit rate. Customers can also add six-channel surround Dolby Digital audio, but it has to be encoded elsewhere.
When customers apply the menu templates on their current project, the buttons and text are resized to fit them. Generating scene selection menus is an easy task and the pages are automatically linked to the menus. One of the selling points of this program is the great scope for designing menus, buttons and disc navigation structures from scratch. After you do this very easy with Sony DVD Architect Studio 2011, the only things you will have to worry about are soundtracks, subtitles and encryption options.
Customers have the option to handle audio compilations and slideshows. They can add images to audio compilations and music to slideshows. With this program slideshows are rendered as video files; this uses a lot of disc capacity.
- The program is also able to author DVD and Blu-Ray discs, although this is not its main reason. The application supports a variety of formats, including BD-R, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+R DL. The application allows the customers to create and burn discs with ease and does it fast as well. The program offers high-quality output. When burning video, the quality is high as well. There is no problem in syncing video with audio.
- The program uses a lot of a computer’s memory, so it does not run very well if you have multiple other applications in the background or foreground. We recommend using Sony DVD Architect Studio 2011 all by itself in your Windows.
- Overall, DVD Architect Studio 2011 is a good program developed by Sony. The Japanese company is known for providing high-quality software and applications, so I trust them this time as well
