Corel has announced its Ulead DVD MovieFactory and Ulead VideoStudio are the world’s first DVD editing and authoring applications to achieve certified support of both Blu-ray Disc Movie Video (BDMV) and Advanced Video Codec High Definition Standard (AVCHD) formats.

The announcement, which was made this week at IFA 2007 in Berlin, Germany, means users can produce DVD projects in BDMV, AVCHD or standard DVD formats.

Registered users of Ulead DVD MovieFactory 6 Plus can purchase an update which includes BDMV, AVCHD and HD DVD Advanced Content formats for £9.99 via Corel's website.

However Ulead VideoStudio 11 Plus users will be able to download an update that includes BDMV and AVCHD formats for free.

The update is available today in Japan while the English language version will be available in early September. German and French languages will follow in early October with Traditional Chinese scheduled for availability in mid October.
