PowerDVD Ultra for HD DVD and Blu-ray playback Cyberlink, the company behind the infamous PowerDVD software, released PowerDVD Ultra, made specifically for playback of high definition video content. With support for both Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD titles, this piece of software is exactly what we all dream would become hardware soon. It is built to support all the extra features that both camps cram into their shiny new formats.
Playback of HD video is not a problem with support for H.264, HD MPEG-2, and WMV-HD. It is optimized for high-definition graphics processors from Intel, NVIDIA and ATI with improved support for Widescreen monitors and the latest content protection standards for digital connectors.

Interactivity features on discs work perfectly with both BD-J and iHD supported, meaning all overlayed menus, movie bookmarks, picture-in-picture commentary etc. are supported. For the audio freaks, there is support for pure high-definition audio with Dolby Digital Plus, TrueHD, DTS-HD and home-theater audio support with true 7.1 channel Dolby Digital EX and 5.1 channel DTS.

Actually, Ashampoo Burning Studio 6 and 7 have the option for burning Blu-ray Movies, don't see the point in that anyways though, one blank disc is $25 CND at BestBuy.
