Toast 6 Ti gets DL support
Roxio today announced it will offer DVD Double Layer (DL) support in its Toast 6 line of software. The new DVD +R Double Layer capabilities of will enable users to burn nearly twice the amount of personal data (from 4.7GB to 8.5GB), or record more than three hours of MPEG-2 (DVD-quality) video content on a single DVD +R DL disc, allowing video professionals to create full-length productions without using complicated and expensive DLT (digital linear tape). Toast 6 users will also benefit from the ability to back up their non-encrypted DVDs without having to first compress the dual layer into a single layer--a step which requires additional software and sacrifices video and audio quality. The update will be offered as a free download to registered users in June.
