One of the features that makes the TotalMedia Theatre such a useful piece of software is that it offers the option of creating DVDs that are identical to the original in almost every way. This is especially useful for people who may have purchased an older version of the Windows Movie Studio DVD authoring program and do not want to spend money on getting a new copy. You can also copy your media files directly from the software onto an existing hard drive and use the same disk as a back up in case the computer crashes and you need to retrieve your data. For those who have an old version of Windows that does not have the Windows Movie Studio component installed, the software provides the means of converting video into dvd's through the use of the inbuilt back up feature in the software.
As part of its service to the multimedia industry, the TotalMedia Theatre provides support for the High Definition Transfer Format (HDTC), an advanced file format that is commonly used in high-definition television broadcast. When creating high-definition videos and broadcasting them over the internet or to television sets, the transfer of the video from the camera to the monitor needs to be done with high-definition standards so that the images are as clear as possible. This is why standard DVD discs are unable to provide a clear viewing quality while transferring them to HDTV sets. The use of a high-definition media player such as the TotalMedia Theatre allows the user to enjoy the viewing quality of high-definition television broadcasting while saving on expenses that would be required for buying extra high-definition channels.
