NCH Software's Award-Winning Express Burn Now Ready for Mac OS

Mac Users Now Have Much Needed Support for Blu-ray Discs

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - January 6, 2010) - NCH Software, the leading provider of audio, video, business, VoIP tools and utilities worldwide, today announced that Express Burn, software to create and record audio or data CDs, and video authoring, is available for the Mac OS.

An upgrade from the established award-winning program for Windows, the new Express Burn for the Mac is also free for CD and paid for DVDs or Blu-ray discs. Mac users can burn audio and data CDs, DVDs, or Blu-ray discs.

For Blu-ray, there are few options, and significant need, in the Mac community.

For CDs, audio is recorded with direct digital recording, so perfect audio quality is maintained, and most formats are supported, included wav, mp3, wma, au, aiff, ra, ogg, flac, and aac. One of the nicest features on this free version is that users can normalize audio volume and burn audio CDs in seamless mode, with no pause between tracks.

And for the ever increasing need to backup data, data CDs are fully ISO compliant with Joliet extension.

In the commercial version of Express Burn, video files can be re-encoded and made into a standard DVD Movie disc. Video burning supports avi, mpg, vob, asf, wmv, mp4, ogm and all video formats that have a DirectShow based codec, and both widescreen and standard formats. Users can also record video files to PAL or NTSC.

In terms of data writing to DVD or Blu-ray, the commercial version of Express Burns creates ISO compliant data DVDs (4.5GB+ DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW) and Burn Blu-ray discs (25GB/50GB BD-R, BD-RE, BD-R DL, BD-RE DL).
