Avanquest Software is distributing Nova Development's CD and DVD burning application, Disco, in the UK.
Disco (£29.95) has been designed to be both attractive, interactive and easy-to-use. The application is already attracting praise for its user interface, which suggests how many applications will look as developers exploit the Core Animation features within Mac OS X 10.5 'Leopard'.
The application burns CDs at maximum speed automatically, takes advantage of seamless multi-session support and allows users to burn and erase re-writable discs.
Disco also offers built-in spanning tools - you can drag-and-drop as much content for burning into the application as you wish, and Disco will then figure out how many CDs are required to burn that information.
The software also creates a discography of all your burnt items, making it easier to track down one particular piece of data from among a pile of archive CDs. It offers built-in protection against data corruption and ships with disc labelling software.
The application is also capable of burning downloaded film and TV shows to DVD including VIDEO_TS format data, and will duplicate iDVD discs.
