AuthorScript® Storage SDK

Available for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux, the AuthorScript Storage SDKs allow application developers and service providers to quickly integrate powerful capabilities for recording, copying, and archiving to recordable/rewritable BD, DVD, and CD media. Covering file structure creation and management, file reading and writing, device control, and output to either optical media or disc image, AuthorScript Storage is a full-featured solution ideal for both one-off and industrial-scale applications.

AuthorScript Storage SDKs offer the following key advantages over competing disc-burning solutions:

24/7 uptime assurance (no machine lock ups)
device access protection shields operations in progress from outside interference
multiple threads on a single process allow concurrent burns to different devices
file system is cached, then flushed in one sequential write, avoiding incremental updates
native 32-bit and 64-bit binaries
Real-Time To Disc (RTTD):
record direct to disc in real time (streaming)
write to a file without knowing total data size in advance
Entry-based mastering:
write either complete directories or individual files
use callbacks to control timing and flow of data transfer
File system control:
create and manipulate file system objects
easily migrate products based on standard file system calls
Device support:
SilentSelect™ automatically supports new optical devices without ongoing application maintenance
Multiple language support:
native C++ interface
managed .NET interface for C#, J#, and Visual Basic
Java interface
Built-in diagnostics:
bus tracing and logging
API tracing and logging
