Ensequence and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) have jointly announced an agreement whereby SPHE will license and resell Ensequence on-Q Create software suite to both major studios and independent Blu-ray developers. The software, which will be integrated into SPHE's existing Blu-print software package, will allow developers to easily and quickly add BD-Java content to their Blu-ray releases without the necessity for advanced training on the Java language.

The software will provide developers with a drag-and-drop interface with Adobe Photoshop integration and built-in Blu-ray Disc functionality. It will provide support for features such as picture-in-picture (PIP) commentary, purchase functionality, and bonus content - including notifications regarding an upcoming sequel. Additionally, the software will ensure that all authored discs function correctly across all BD-J implementations.

Don Eklund, SPHE's EVP of Advanced Technology commented, "The Ensequence on-Q Create suite has drastically reduced the complexity of authoring Java content on Blu-ray Disc titles, enabling content developers to create compelling, rich and dynamic interactive experiences in a WYSIWYG environment – and in drastically reduced timeframes."

Dalen Harrison, CEO, Ensequence continued, "We were able to apply our expertise in the television set-top box market and create interactive television experiences for multiple platforms to address the complexity of Blu-ray authoring, which is just being recognized in the packaged media community. With the on-Q Create suite for Blu-ray Java, our customers and resellers are able to take advantage of the advanced capabilities made available on the most cutting edge consumer devices today."

Hello jim morrison,

I have been told Blu-Print is 30k US and Ensequence is going to be another 5K but that was before this.
