Nero demonstrates support for HD DVD technology at CES 2006

High-def video playback with Nero ShowTime and Nero Home plus HD DVD-Video authoring with the Nero HD DVD-Video

LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)-- Jan. 4, 2006 Nero, leaders in digital media technology, is demonstrating support of HD DVD technology--the next generation DVD format--with its ultimate all-in-one digital media suite, Nero 7 Ultra Edition.

Demonstrations are taking place during CES 2006 at the HD DVD Promotion Group booth (Central Hall #7916), as well as at the Nero booth (South Hall 1 #21568).

With its support for HD DVD technology, Nero 7 Ultra Edition provides superb audio-visual capabilities, since the format delivers all the capacity necessary for many types of recorded content, including movies and live performances. Nero will demonstrate high definition video playback with Nero ShowTime and Nero Home and HD DVD-Video authoring with the Nero HD DVD-Video authoring engine which will be included to Nero Vision.

Two types of single-sided HD DVD discs are available for content playback, and Nero 7 Ultra Edition supports both: the 15GB single-layer disc, and the dual-layer disc with double-capacity for a full 30GB. Using the latest compression technologies, the 30GB disc can store up to 8 hours of 1,125-line HD images (depending on transfer rates). Today's DVD has a capacity of 4.7GB and can contain 2 hours of 525-line standard definition (SD) images. The 30GB HD DVD has space enough for 48 hours of SD images

Even though a two hour HD movie consumes 8GB of space, this is no problem for HD DVD. Even the lower-capacity 15GB HD DVD-ROM can hold a complete movie and a large amount of bonus content (extra scenes, cast and director interviews, and a "making-of" documentary). In addition to content, viewers will be able to enjoy new levels of interactivity that add to the entertainment experience.

"Nero 7 Ultra Edition's support of HD DVD enables the consumer to play back HD DVD-Video disc content with menu navigation in premium image quality," said Udo Eberlein, President, Nero Inc. "High quality and speedy support of next-generation blue laser formats shows why we are leaders in the digital media technology arena."
