Sonic Solutions on Thursday said its technology to burn music and video to CDs and DVDs, respectively, would be included in Windows Vista, set to ship to consumers in January.
Sonic, based in Novato, Calif., said it is also working with Microsoft in developing a Vista-certified version of its products, including its flagship Roxio Easy Media Creator 9. The software suite is for CD and DVD authoring and burning.
Under a multi-year licensing deal, Microsoft is embedding Sonic's AuthorScript engine for formatting and burning video and slideshows to DVD, and burning data and audio to CD. Financial details were not disclosed.
