Intervideo Ulead receives Blu-ray certification

Intervideo and its partner Ulead claim to be first to receive certification for Blu-ray playback, authoring and burning. The playback software WinDVD BD and the BD DiscRecorder, which allows users to record high-definition video content from HDV camcorders to Blu-ray media, are first to market; the authoring solution DVD Movie Factory will get a Blu-ray extension later this year.

Al three software packages support BD-R, BD-RE, BD-ROM and BD-J media.
