Roxio Inc. announced on Tuesday that they will add DVD Double Layer compatibility to their
Toast 6 Titanium and
Toast with Jam 6 applications. A free upgrade for registered users will be available for download from the Roxio Web site in June. The update will enable users to burn 8.5GB of data, instead of the typical 4.7GB, on a single DVD+R Double Layer (DL) disc.
This will allow Toast 6 Titanium users to create one-click copies of non-encrypted dual-layer DVD movies as well as author DVDs with over three hours of video. Toast with Jam 6 users will gain the ability to burn more than 70 hours of music on a DVD and produce DVDs with over four hours of video by employing Dolby Digital compression.
