At this year's National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas, we elected to utilize a private meeting room on the show floor to meet with our customers and UHDG members. With over 30 pre-set meetings for the show, we were overwhelmed with the outpouring of goodwill and interest in UHD-BD from our customers and technical partners. We were excited to hear about content holder interest from around the world about next gen audio, HDR and Digital Bridge.

Scenarist Press from NAB:

Additionally, UHDG members were provided with a special update on our development progress and a demo of Scenarist UHD Alpha. We received valuable feedback as we are moving rapidly toward releasing this first toolset in support of Ultra HD Blu-ray.



Working with duplicate IGs can be confusing. There are a few simple things you can do to when creating a duplicate IG to minimize the potential confusion.

To create a duplicate IG:

  1. Once you are happy with the programming of the first IG, right-click on the IG and select Encode > Build from the shortcut menu.
  2. Copy and Paste the IG.
  3. Back up in the Photoshop document of the new IG.
  4. Change both the IG and the DS layer names to be different. For example, if the original IG name is “Pop_up,” name the duplicate IG “Pop_up_French.” (Again make certain to change both the IG And DS layers.
  5. Export the new Scenarist Designer PS file.
  6. In the duplicated IG, rename the IG to match the IG layer name in the Photoshop document that you just exported. Repeat for the DS layer (the item below the EPOCH). For example, the new names would be “Pop_up_French” (IG) and “Pop_up_French” (DS).
  7. Right click on the DS level and select Import > Update IG/PG/TextST from the shortcut menu.
  8. Point to the new IG and follow the prompts.


There are many ways to upgrade your existing Scenarist SD or BD system, including special pricing and priority technical support programs. If you have questions about support, upgrades or whatever regarding Scenarist, please reach out to our distinguished reseller partners:
