The broadcast revolution continues apace as Astarte announces three new tools: DVDelight RT, DVDirector RT, and DVDirector 1.5.

The first two packages add real-time MPEG encoding capabilities to the Mac versions of DVDelight and DVDirector.

DVDirector is a well-established DVD authoring tool, but version 1.5 adds motion and audio menus, and a host of interface alignments. These include Multi-story and the ability to include different video "cuts" on DVD - without resorting to multiple saved versions of the data on disc.

All products will be available "later this year" according to Astarte.
