FREMONT (Business Wire), June 20_InterVideo(R), Inc. (NASDAQ:IVII) and its partner Ulead(R) Systems, Inc. (TSE:2487), industry leaders in video, image and DVD software and members of the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), announced today that InterVideo Ulead has met and passed all of the requirements from Blu-ray Disc License Entity. InterVideo Ulead is the first to announce certification of its Blu-ray Disc applications.

WinDVD BD(TM) provides a total BD playback solution, including support for BDAV video format. WinDVD BD fully supports BDMV (movie) titles with parental and region controls and the highly-interactive features of the BD-J specification.

BD DiscRecorder(TM) allows users to record high-definition video content from HDV camcorders to Blu-ray Disc in full HDV resolution. Video may be recorded directly to disc in real-time or first captured to the user's hard drive for editing. The editing features allow users to combine multiple standard or high-definition clips as well as trim and extract clips using Multi-Trim editing.
DVD DiskRecorder(TM) Move SDK allows users to "move" recorded TV programs from hard drives to single-layer (25GB) or double-layer (50GB) re-recordable BD-RE discs. During the "moving" process, the video is recorded to Blu-ray disc using BDAV MPEG-2 TS (Transport Stream). The discs include AACS content protection to prevent potential hacking. DiscRecorder also supports "moving" TV-program video to DVD disc. While transcoding the video to DVD-VR format, DiscRecorder also incorporates CPRM content protection on the disc.
