Sonic does 3D

Sonic Solutions is big on the "next big thing" in home video — 3D. Most interesting is their announcement of Roxio Video Labs 3D, a consumer product for 3D authoring - unfortunately, other than the press release, there are no details yet about what exactly this product does, or how it works.

Professional 3D Authoring Technologies
3DAccess is a program that provides professional authoring facilities to prepare 3D premium video entertainment for distribution on Blu-ray 3D and electronically over the web to 3D-enabled consumer electronic devices.

Digital 3D Entertainment Delivery
The RoxioNow entertainment platform serves a broad range of premium content, including new movies and next-day TV programs, to home and mobile electronics including PCs, connected TVs, set-top DVRs, Blu-ray Disc players, smartphones, and mobile media devices.

3D Consumer Playback
Roxio CinePlayer BD allows users to play 3D Blu-ray titles as well as content downloaded from on-line video providers. CinePlayer BD also supports real-time conversion of 2D video to 3D.

3D Personal Videos
Roxio Video Lab 3D, a new consumer product from Sonic, allows consumers to edit and burn personal 3D content on standard DVDs; these discs can then be played back on any standard DVD or Blu-ray player connected to 3D-enabled HDTVs or PCs.

Roxio Video Lab will available to PC OEMs in May. Sonic plans to release additional 3D products and services later this year.
