Scenarist Announces Release of DTS:X Encoder Suite, and Updates for UHD and BD V5.8 Software

Scenarist’s focus at IBC 2016 will be the practical implementation of Scenarist UHD into the Scenarist BD workflow. They have announced new updates for their UHD and their BD V5.8, and the pending release of the DTS:X Encoder Suite.

Because the consumer adoption of Ultra HD Blu-ray is outpacing the Blu-ray Disc format adoption by a factor of 4:1, Scenarist’s engineering and product teams have collaborated with the Blu-ray Disc Association, major motion picture companies, technology partners, and Scenarist's Ultra HD Blu-ray focus group (UHDG) to create a new Ultra HD Blu-ray format.

Scenarist’s Ultra HD Blu-ray Format launch phase has been successfully completed, providing a new Ultra HD Blu-ray format.

At IBC 2016, Scenarist plans to discuss what is necessary for the successful use of Ultra HD Blu-ray, including: format updates, Blur-ray Disc to Ultra HD Blu-ray authoring workflow, 4K HDR video encoding with ATEME TITAN, menu and subtitle colour space handling with Scenarist Designer UHD, audio updates and immersive audio considerations, and updated security and watermarking discussion.

Scenarist UHD will now create the vast majority of the Ultra HD Blu-ray titles needed by the upcoming Holiday Season — estimated to be twice the amount of the 100+ Ultra HD Blu-ray titles available today.

Given the completion of the launch phase for Ultra HD Blu-ray, Scenarist UHD is announcing the adoption phase pricing. The system’s accessibility, proven ability, and new pricing facilitate the addition of Ultra HD Blu-ray authoring services to any facility.
