Sunland International (SLI) has introduced a comprehensive new Blu-ray Disc media creation workflow which can run on Macintosh and Windows platforms. This workflow covers authoring with Adobe Creative Suite 4 Production Premium software, and burning and archiving with a Digistor Self-Powered Blu-ray Writer, which is constructed around Blu-ray technology from Panasonic. “Whether importing from Panasonic P2 HD professional cameras or AVCHD consumer camcorders, the speed and ease of tapeless workflows provide a great boost to productivity,” said Robin Sweeten, strategic marketing manager for Panasonic Industrial Company. “The Digistor Blu-ray Writer enables video professionals to easily add Blu-ray Disc authoring and HD video archiving to their existing workstations and laptops, enabling the ultimate creation of stunning HD content on Panasonic Blu-ray Disc media.”
With a thin, slot-loading, compact and portable external drive, the Digistor Blu-Ray Writer is powered by a single USB 2.0 port, which needs no external A/C power, and profits from efficient power regulation by SLI’s proprietary Intelligent Power Manager. Now through April 30, 2009, a special bundle offer is available to support end-to-end Blu-ray Disc media creation workflow. The bundle includes the Digistor Self-Powered Blu-ray Writer and Adobe Creative Suite 4 Production Premium software for $1,899, a savings of $399 over individual purchase. The Digistor Blu-ray Writer can also be purchased on its own for $599. Both the bundle and the Digistor Blu-Ray Writer are available at: www.slidirect.com/NAB.
