As a CD/DVD recording and pre-mastering software package that supports various phases of compact disc and DVD authoring and production, GEAR PRO UNIX 5.0 now offers you the following:
- Improved Graphical User Interface for the creation of CD and DVD projects.
- Creation of DVD-ROM and DVD-Video volumes (DVD-5 and DVD-9 dual layer) and formatting into ISO/UDF, pure ISO or pure UDF, with Rock Ridge extensions and Joliet extensions.
- Recording to CD-R(W) drives and media, and recording to DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R and DVD-RAM drives and media up to 4.7 GB. DVD+R-DL (double layer, DVD-9) support is included.
- Creation of DVD-Video projects (DVD-4, DVD-5 and DVD-9 dual layer) and importing DVD-Video files (VOB files) using the 'Import VIDEO-TS' function.
- Creation of CD volumes for CD-ROM ISO-9660, ISO/UDF, UDF, Rockridge, CD-ROM XA, CD Audio and Mixed-mode formats. File names up to 256 characters for Rockridge and up to 64 characters for ISO-9660. Directory nesting up to 24 levels. Rock Ridge support for links, pipes, device special files, etc with permission and group handling.
- Besides disc-at-once and track-at-once recording, GEAR now supports incremental packet writing with variable packets on recordable media and fixed packets on rewritable media, using UDF formatting (up to UDF version 2.01).
- Support for IDE-SCSI converter cards. This will allow you to use IDE/ATAPI recorders on your Unix System with SCSI interface. In particular, the GEAR PRO Unix INTERFACE CARD in combination with GEAR PRO UNIX allows the seamless use of IDE/ Atapi recorders including: CD-RW, DVD-R(W), DVD+R(W) and DVD-RAM.
- For Solaris Sparc systems, GEAR now provides IDE/Atapi drive support to directly interface with IDE recorders on the bus, without the need for a IDE-SCSI converter card (Solaris version 2.8 and higher). USB devices are also supported in most cases.
- Powerful virtual image building requiring less than 5% of total CD /DVD image size to record. Allows recording directly from the virtual image.
- Write a compact disc on any available CD/DVD recorder from Sony, Philips, Pioneer, Panasonic/Matsushita, Plextor, Ricoh, Mitsumi, Teac, Sanyo, JVC, Yamaha, and almost every OEM recorder. The CDs you produce with GEAR will be fully compatible with standard CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives.
- New automatic drive detection feature providing support for new CD/DVD drives without applying patches or driver updates. GEAR automatically obtains the supported features from the drive, if available.
- Powerful recorder configuration: track-at-once, disc-at-once, test write, Burnproof, Justlink, manual fixation, multi-session and verify after write. Separate read and write speeds for DVD-R/+R, DVDRW/+ RW, CD-R and CD-RW.
