AfterDawn: Glossary


Blu-code (BAE-VX1000) is Sony's own professional Blu-ray authoring software which promises to "bring high-speed, high-quality Blu-ray Disc compliant encoding within reach of smaller studios, where budgets are tight and space is limited."

The encoder is capable of creating H.264 AVC and MPEG-2 BD compliant video streams which are compatible with BD-ROM and BD-R/RE formats, as well as DVD.

Blu-Code software offers MPEG-2 encoding faster than real time, at 0.7X realtime as well as extremely fast 2-pass VBR encoding using proprietary algorithms.
