Rivergate's First Blu-ray product to be titled "BluStreak Navigator"

We have decided to use the all-encompassing name "BluStreak" for our pending Blu-ray Software Products. The first product will be BluStreak Navigator, targeted for release by the end of the year.

BluStreak Navigator is a pop-up menu design and navigation tool to be used in combination with any Blu-ray authoring application. It integrates the creative design and disc navigation process into a seamless whole, using "smart templates" and your own images and video. Navigation is structured yet flexible, and is accomplished with drag and drop and interface choices, without requiring knowledge of HDMV navigation commands or Java.

Navigator is an abstraction layer program, but with the powerful HDMV Movie object commands at its core. BD-J Titles are not altered, but may coexist with the generated command structure. The authoring process is to import entire BDMV folders and/or clips from them, create the menu and navigation structure in BluStreak Navigator, then output to a new BDMV folder or UDF 2.5 disc image. BluStreak Navigator 1.0 will require Toast or another burning application to create recordable media. A later release will incorporate direct burning.

BlueStreak Composer, our full-featured authoring system, is targeted for release in late spring or early summer of 2009.
