Sonic and Dolby Streamline Dolby TrueHD Production for Blu-ray Disc

Sonic Solutions and Dolby Laboratories
today announced that Sonic Solutions has integrated Dolby’s professional
Dolby TrueHD audio stream editing tools within Scenarist, Sonic’s
world-standard authoring system for commercial Blu-ray Disc
production. Support for Dolby TrueHD audio stream editing within
Scenarist significantly streamlines production by eliminating up to 90
percent of the effort that was previously required to include the
high-definition codec in blockbuster Blu-ray Disc titles. The result
will be Blu-ray Disc titles that not only deliver stunning
high-definition video capabilities, but also an amazing audio
experience. Sonic included the enhanced Dolby TrueHD authoring
capabilities in its version 5.2 of Scenarist released on March 30, 2010.

"Dolby set a standard for motion picture audio quality and
continues to be a leader in the entertainment industry," said Rolf
Hartley, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Premium Content
Group, Sonic Solutions. "Integrating Dolby’s stream editing into
Scenarist brings benefit to our customers by massively reducing
time-to-market in producing Blu-ray Disc titles that feature Dolby
TrueHD audio."

Dolby TrueHD is lossless audio technology designed for
high-definition entertainment. Dolby TrueHD supports up to eight
channels (7.1-channel surround) of 24-bit/96 kHz audio, with
expandability to accommodate more channels in the future while retaining
compatibility with all Dolby TrueHD decoders. Integrating Dolby TrueHD
capabilities into Scenarist will help increase production efficiency by
turning an otherwise lengthy procedure into a seamless process.

"As a recognized leader in Blu-ray Disc title production,
Sonic Solutions is well positioned to help studios offer all the
benefits of Dolby TrueHD to movie lovers worldwide," said Brian Link,
Vice President, Business Development, Dolby Laboratories. "Because Sonic
Scenarist includes Dolby TrueHD editing tools, it enables studios to
more quickly and easily deliver outstanding lossless audio for Blu-ray
Disc titles."

Sonic Scenarist provides a comprehensive, professional
authoring solution for the next generation of optical media and the
preparation of entertainment for electronic distribution via Roxio
CinemaNow powered services. Offering maximum playback compatibility
and complete interactive title control, Scenarist provides unrivaled
authoring power and world-class results.
