http://www.engadgethd.com/2008/03/12/roxio-preps-toast-9-with-blu-ray-video-and-streaming-support/ Roxio will be announcing a new version of Toast Titanium, its CD/DVD creation tool for the Mac, later today. Toast 9 brings Blu-ray video to the table and also adds the ability to stream TiVo recordings and other video content to your iPhone/iPod Touch. Other changes in the new version of Toast include a revamped user interface that offers a larger, easier-to-read capacity meter, a new top-level tab dedicated to media format conversion and other niceties like QuickLook support in Toasts media browser. For many users though the big news in Toast 9 is the Blu-ray support which means you can finally burn that AVCHD camera footage to an HD disc from your Mac. The Blu-ray video authoring comes via an HD/BD Plug-in, which will be available separately from Toast 9. The additional plugin in a free download through the end of March, after which it will set you back $20. Interestingly, Roxio has also included the ability to burn Blu-ray content to a standard DVD obviously you wont be able to fit a whole movie, but for smaller clips it offers a way to go high def without ponying up for Blu-ray media. Roxio has also extended the TiVo support in Toast with a new standalone app (shipping with Toast 9) by the name of Roxio Streamer. Combining Streamer with an app like TiVoToGo, Roxio promises complete end-to-end recording and serving of TiVo DVR shows. Roxio Streamer is basically a front-end to turn your Mac into a media streamer. You just add your video to Streamers queue and the software will convert it (if necessary) and send it to your iPhone through the Streamer web interface. Theres a number of other small changes were looking forward to as well like the ability to pause disc burn operations and a new audio fingerprinting technology which promises to make it easier to identify music tracks (useful for those doing LP to MP3 conversions). So far Roxio hasnt set a release date for Toast 9 though the company told us last week that it should ship by Friday March 14 at the latest. Once we get our hands on a copy well be sure to let you know how well it all works. Toast 9 will set you back $100 plus $20 for HD/BD Plug-in (free through March 31, 2008). Existing users can buy an upgrade for $60.
