The software‘s main win-
dow is presented in an or-
ganized manner and pro-
vides all of the necessary
information. Towards the top
of the display the progress
of a DVD or Blu-Ray disc
burning is presented graphi-
cally to the user in five steps
culminating in a completed
For our tests we used SD
and HD recordings from two
different receivers that we
previously transferred to
the hard drive of our Intel
Pentium G630 PC with 4GB
of memory. In just a few
seconds, DVR-Studio HD
recognized the 10 files of a
90-minute nearly 10GB HD
recording and displayed it in
the Editor window.
The three audio tracks
(MPEG stereo, MPEG stereo
for an acoustical image dis-
play description and Dolby
Digital 2.0) as well as the
availability of teletext were
all correctly recognized.
With the help of the time
bar graph the desired sec-
tion could easily be marked.
It‘s a very precise selec-
tion thanks to the blended-
in symbols for step-by-step
video playback located next
to the cut buttons.
At this point it is recom-
mended to search for a de-
sired still image that can be
used as the title picture with
just a single mouse click
or can be saved as an im-
age file to be used at a later
time. Extremely practical is
the display of the expected
size of the completed project
so that the user can get an
idea of how many recordings
might still fit on the DVD or
Blu-Ray disc.
The third step to a com-
pleted disc involves the sec-
tion Meta-data. If available,
DVR-Studio HD accesses the
EPG data from the original
recording. If, however, this
is not available, the user
can manually enter the pro-
gram‘s title, content, genre,
cast of characters, etc.
A properly created DVD or
Blu-Ray disc would also in-
clude a graphically appealing
menu. This is all taken care
of by DVR-Studio HD in the
fourth and second-to-last
step. Using the available re-
cordings in the project, the
software creates a project
menu, a recording menu,
a chapter menu or an au-
dio menu. We were very
impressed that the prepro-
grammed menus were all
very graphically appealing
and that they could easily be
customized with just a few
mouse clicks.
Once the recordings of a
project have been edited,
provided with content infor-
mation and the menus have
been created, the final step
is the actual burning of the
DVD/Blu-Ray disc or the sav-
ing of it to a file. DVR-Studio
HD supports the creation of
DVD and Blu-Ray discs with
HD or SD recordings, the
export in a digital receiver‘s
format as well as the export
in the M2TS and TS formats.
Additionally, an MPEG file
can also be created.
In our tests DVR-Studio
HD effortlessly recognized
our external Blu-Ray burner
and there were absolutely no
problems with the burning
of a DVD or a Blu-Ray disc.
The software also gives you
the capability to provide the
output in the form of an ISO
image so that it can then be
burned to a disc at a later
time using other burning
DVR-Studio HD from
Haenlein Software demon-
strated itself in our tests to
be exceptionally easy to use
for permanently storing HD
recordings on a DVD or Blu-
Ray disc. The number of sup-
ported devices is enormous
and the editing capabilities
are so far-reaching and at
the same time well-organ-
ized and easy to understand
that both beginners and sea-
soned professionals will en-
joy using DVR-Studio HD.
Since the manufacturer
offers a full 30-day free tri-
al period, there‘s only one
thing we can suggest: just
give it a try!
