Sonic Solutions today announced that it will support the forthcoming Blu-ray data recording standard in its line of Sonic- and Roxio-branded consumer applications. Blu-ray recordable media can hold 25 gigabytes of data on a single-layer disc–four to five times the content of a standard DVD. “Working closely with the leading drive manufacturers implementing the Blu-ray format, Sonic is leveraging its advanced DVD recording technology, deployed on hundreds of millions of PCs worldwide, to deliver the industry’s first, next generation BD-RE and BD-R data recording applications when the first drives ship in the summer of 2005.”
