Nero Burning ROM 6 details - Includes Nero Digital MPEG-4 Ahead Software, the makers of famous Nero product line, sent us the details of the up coming version 6.0. The CD/DVD recording software is evolving into a real Swiss army knife of multimedia storaging. The 6.0 will also include the much anticipated MPEG-4 audio/video codec, the Nero Digital.
Nero 6.0 Ultra Edition to Include the Most Comprehensive Set of CD and DVD Recording Tools Ever Seen
With the imminent release of Nero 6.0, Ahead Software is addressing all aspects of the optical recording process by its inclusion of advanced video editing and authoring, DVD playback, all-embracing backup, MPEG-4 Nero Digital, and a whole new array of features and functionality never previously seen in any other CD/DVD recording suite.

Featuring an intelligent and customizable StartSmart application launcher, any user -- beginner or advanced -- will always be in complete control of all recording projects.

The Nero 6.0 Ultra-Edition includes NeroVision Express 2.0, a complete solution for VCD/SVCD and DVD authoring with full video editing, Nero ShowTime, a DVD software DVD player for the most vibrant picture viewing of DVD movies and your own projects, along with MPEG-4 (Nero Digital) compatibility, Nero BackItUp, with full, incremental, update, and differential control of your data, and disc spanning, InCD 4.0 for true drag and drop and save within application, CD/DVD writing, Wave Editor 2.0 and Nero Soundtrax, for multi-track audio editing and mixing, and MPEG-4 video and audio (high efficiency AAC), using Nero Digital, the new standard in audio/video compression. The Nero Toolkit featuring CD/DVD Speed - the de facto industry standard for critical media and drive analysis and used by drive manufacturers Worldwide is also a major part of the Nero suite.

Add to this the most intuitive and easy to use interface ever seen with the Nero Express wizard, then it's not difficult to understand why Nero 6.0 is a huge upgrade to the already successful Nero 5.5.

"Nero 6, the most powerful and reliable application of its kind, is full of much sought-after features that consumers look for in an all-in-one solution! With the Nero 6 Ultra Edition, finally there is no more reason for consumers to look anywhere else to be able to do it all," said Udo Eberlein, President of Ahead Software Inc. "We strive to meet the needs of all users, therefore Nero 6 offers the choice of using an expert or standard mode within the application, so that every consumer level is supported."

Nero 6 will make its much anticipated debut at CeBIT 2003 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, booth #4711, beginning June 18th.You can always get the most recent Nero version from our official download mirror.

This sounds great, but are they spreading themselves too thin? I like Nero for what it is, a great CD/DVD burning program. I don't want to see it become a monster like other popular burning software has become. - Bob

It would be interesting to see if the Nero Digital includes support for AACPlus (AAC + SBR). It is now being used in Digital AM (DRM) radio, which launched June 16th. Presently, there are no publicly available AACPlus enocders or decoders for the PC apart from software DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) decoders.
