With the release of ProShow 7, a handful of new video output formats have been added to the Video for Web, Devices and Computers window.  You may notice a category called High Definition Disc Authoring. The goal of these video presets is to allow you to create Blu-ray or AVCHD files that can be imported into a 3rd-party disc authoring program without the need to re-encode the video.
