Digigami Ships Compression Software Bundle for MacintoshMaster your Moving Picture Pro Bundle combines three MPEG compression tools (March 15, 2005)
Digigami today announced it is now shipping Master your Moving Picture Pro Bundle, a software collection which combines Digigami's three most popular MPEG compression tools for Macintosh. All three professional products are native Macintosh applications with full support for the latest versions of the Mac OS X operating system and have been extensively optimized for use with the Velocity Engine. Digigami MegaPEG.X Pro, for instance, replaces 30 bottlenecks with routines optimized for Altivec, resulting in unparalleled performance on modern G5 systems.
The software product bundle, which includes full license keys for Digigami MegaPEG.X Pro Batch, MegaPEG.X Pro QuickTime plug-in, and Digigami MPressionist.X Pro, combines over $800.00 worth of compression software into a single bundle for just $420.00 USD.
"The combination of MPressionist.X Pro and MegaPEG.X Pro greatly increases the productivity and capability of any production shop, from the home-based individual event videographer to the professional post house.
Digigami MPressionist.X Pro is a one-of-a-kind quantitative tool for demystifying hard-to-understand compression concepts such as bitrate, quantization, GOP structure and for assessing MPEG picture quality. When training new employees, self-educating, diagnosing compression problems, or asserting the quality of your own work for clients, there is no better way to get to the truth than with MPressionist.X Pro. Digigami MPressionist.X Pro is the number one choice for educators training videographers on Apple DVD Studio Pro and Compressor. " said Gen Kiyooka, CTO of Digigami, Inc.
MegaPEG.X Pro increases your DVD compression choices to provide unique solutions to difficult to solve problems, such reducing the bit-budget for supplementary materials. With MegaPEG.X Pro's very-low-bitrate templates, supplementary materials can be encoded as low as 0.7 Mbits/sec VBR, reducing the impact on the bit allocation for the main title. Conversely, by reducing the bit-budget, even more supplementary materials can be included, increasing the value of the DVD title to the consumer. As well, in industrial DVD authoring applications such as compressing bread-and-butter footage like legal depositions, talking head presentations and product tutorials, MegaPEG.X Pro can often get the job done in half as many bits.
MegaPEG.X QT Pro QuickTime 'export' plug-in adds support for all MegaPEG.X encoding templates with direct integration into many popular OS X applications which support the QuickTime movie export architecture. Apple's own iMovie software, for instance, can immediately utilize the features of MegaPEG.X QT Pro as if it were built-in to iMovie.
MegaPEG.X Pro includes preset encoding templates for:
* Low, medium, and high variable bitrate MPEG-1 for Internet streaming.
* Multiplexed MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 VBR movies for PC, kiosk and presentations.
* All supported DVD authoring formats, both MPEG-1 and MPEG-2.
* Unique very-low-bitrate templates for DVD supplementary materials and industrial applications.
* Conversion templates for making PAL from NTSC sources or vice-versa.
* Conversion templates for resampling frame rates from film to video and vice-versa.
* Downconversion from HD sources, including 1920x1080 and 1280x720.
