SnapStream Media released the version 4.5 of its award-winning Beyond TV PC DVR software. And with Beyond TV 4.5, SnapStream also released an optional plug-in to Beyond TV, the DVD Burning Plug-in, that allows users to easily burn DVDs of their recorded TV shows.
In keeping with SnapStream's design philosophy of "simple and powerful", the new DVD Burning Plug-in integrates seamlessly into Beyond TV and makes it easy to burn DVDs of recorded shows, while at the same time it sports a number of powerful features:
* Fully integrated and easy to use: The DVD Burning Plug-in is accessible from the Beyond TV main menu and is designed to be used with a remote control or keyboard and mouse, just like Beyond TV.
* Polished DVD menus with TV show metadata: Burned DVDs contain metadata for TV shows, like title, episode name and original air date and the menus have the same polished look of the Beyond TV interface.
* Video DVDs and data DVDs supported: Users can choose between burning recorded shows to a video DVD or data DVD. Video DVDs work with almost all standalone DVD players, while data DVDs are perfect for backups and compatible with newer DivX and Windows Media DVD players.
* SmartSkip™ compatible: Beyond TV's SmartSkip™ chapters are also burned to DVD so users can skip commercials while watching burned DVDs.
* DiscSqueeze™ Compression: SnapStream's DiscSqueeze™ compression technology automatically fits all your shows onto a video DVD.
* Windows Media and DivX supported: In addition to support for recordings made in MPEG-2 (program streams), the DVD Burning Plug-in also supports recordings made in Windows Media and DivX.
* All popular DVD formats supported: All popular DVD and Mini DVD formats including DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R DL, and DVD-RAM are supported.
"I'm proud of the hard work that our team here at SnapStream has put into Beyond TV 4.5 and the new DVD Burning Plug-in. Beyond TV has always made it easy to record TV shows with your PC. And now it's easy to make great looking DVDs of those shows too," said Rakesh Agrawal, CEO and president of SnapStream Media.
