AuthorScript® Video BD

AuthorScript Video BD, a component of the AuthorScript Video SDK, is a comprehensive authoring and burning solution that transforms high definition video content into advanced interactive Blu-ray Discs in the BDMV format, including both HDMV movies and BD-J applications. The SDK is also available with integrated support for output to the AVCHD format.

AuthorScript Video BD is built around a set of C++ libraries that enable all functionality needed at each stage of the production process:

Authoring:
build a project structure (i.e. Streams, Clips, PlayLists, Movie Objects, etc.), including movies and both timed and browsable slideshows;
populate the structure with references to media (video, audio, and stills);
add Presentation Graphics (PG), Interactive Graphics (IG), and Subtitle (TextST) streams;
define Button and Movie Object navigation;
define BD-J objects and integrate JAR applications.
Multiplexing:
combine referenced source asset streams into the HDMV MPEG-2 transport stream format required for BDMV playback.
Formatting:
arrange presentation content and navigation information into a file and directory structure (disc image) readable by hardware and software BDMV or AVCHD players.
Writing:
record a BDMV or AVCHD disc image to BD-R or BD-RE media, to a folder, or to and ISO file;
BDMV may also be output to a BDCMF file set;
AVCHD may also be recorded to DVD media (DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW).
