Take the Fast Lane from Idea to Movie Premiere
Offering superior DVD performance specifications, the 8x Indi DVD Multiformat burner makes it easy for home videographers to turn ideas into final productions. Superior quietness (<45 dB acoustic noise) makes Indi DVD ideal for project environments, while automatic speed selection ensures perfect recordings. Users can store up to two hours of high-resolution, DVD-quality footage (or up to four hours of better-than-VHS-quality footage) on a single 4.7GB DVD disc.

The 8x Indi DVD is a true multimedia performer. Indi DVD’s versatile software suite makes it amazingly easy to create a DVD that incorporates digital images, video footage and background music—all on one disc. And thanks to Indi DVD’s Multiformat compatibility, users are assured they can record discs that will play back on virtually any home DVD player, making it easy to share their productions with family and friends.

Indi DVD’s powerful, yet easy to use DVD Builder video editing software puts users right into the director’s chair, and gives them the ability to turn their creative ideas into finished DVD productions.
DVD Builder software provides an intuitive interface that allows users to readily import and edit footage and create sharp-looking, cutting-edge videos.

Indi DVD and DVD Builder make creating DVD videos easy and fun—yet the final results have a professional, produced quality that will astound friends and family.

The 8x Indi DVD is not only ideal for creating DVD videos, it’s also perfect for recording and managing digital music. Its 40x CD recording speed is the fastest of any DVD burner, and its included AudioCentralâ„¢ software enables entire music collections to be played, ripped, organized and burned.

The software suite includes many additional useful utilities, such as Roxio’s PhotoSuite Lite, which facilitates importing, editing, organizing and sharing digital images. Disc Copier makes copying discs a breeze, while the Drag-to-Disc utility offers convenient drag-and-drop DVD recording. Creator Classic features a wide variety of recording modes that will satisfy advanced users and beginners alike.
