Toast 7 Titanium
Roxio for Mac is expected to hit store shelves at the end of the month, adding many new features to the popular CD and DVD burning software. Among the new features is extensive DivX support, including the DivX 6 encoder supporting HD. The application can now convert DivX to DVD and create DivX discs. The new iLife Browser makes recording content from any of Apple's creative "iApps" easy. New Data Spanning speeds the file sharing process, while new Compression Technology lets users optimize and copy DVD-Video discs, disc images and VIDEO_TS folders. Toast 7 features the ability to convert video between many formats, including DV (and DV 16:9), HDV (720p, 1080i), MPEG 4, H.264, and others. Dolby Digital, OGG, and FLAC encoding and decoding are supported with the release. Toast 7 will cost $100. A $20 rebate will be available to license holders of previous versions.
