Ulead Taking Advantage of the Increased Capacity of Dual
and Double Layer Media

DVD MovieFactory Supports Layer-Jump Recording of dual-layer DVD-R media

Taipei, Taiwan - June 9, 2005 - Ulead Systems, Inc., a 15-year industry leader in video, image and DVD software, announced today that its award-winning DVD authoring software, Ulead DVD MovieFactory, supports layer-jump recording of dual-layer DVD-R media and 8X DVD+RW burning.

DVD MovieFactory users will benefit from complete DL support [Dual Layer (DVD-R) and Double Layer (DVD+R)] and the improved storage space up to 8.5G. Ulead is among the leaders supplying layer-jump recording, which provides multi-session recording of Dual Layer media burning. Unlike the old "Disc-at-Once" recording process, multi-session burning can cut the burning process into different sessions.

Layer-jump recording alternates burning between both layers which more evenly distributes the data between layers. This ensures the written area expands evenly outwards with each burning session. This means that adjacent layers always contain data, resulting in background noise reduction and improved signal quality which ultimately results in better reading compatibility on all DVD devices.

"We are proud to be offering our partners and customers this advanced DVD burning solution," says Bill Hsiun, Vice President of Worldwide OEM sales at Ulead Systems. "Ulead is a technology leader by offering multi-session recording of dual-layer DVDs today and we are positioned to stay in the forefront by developing Bue-ray and HD-DVD burning technologies for tomorrow."

An upgrade patch is now available for DVD MovieFactory 4 users and will be available shortly for Ulead VideoStudio 9.
