DivXNetworks Releases DivX for Mac 5.1New codec offers speed and quality improvements
DivX for Mac 5.1 is available in two different configurations, a Pro version and a standard edition. The Pro version is designed for video professionals encoding in the DivX format, offering features such as multi-pass VBR, encoding destination profiles (home theater, high-definition, etc.), pre-processing, crop, psychovisual enhancements and other features. It includes the Advanced SImple MPEG-4 profile. The standard edition uses the MPEG-4 Simple Profile and offers fewer features. Both operate through Apple's QuickTime.
According to DivXNetworks, the new 5.1 version includes up to double the decoding performance of the previous version; two new high-quality encoding modes with improved B-frame support and better motion estimation; a new user interface; a feedback mode for more precise compression control; and new psychovisual modeling.
The Pro version of DivX for Mac 5.1 is available now for $19.95. The standard edition is free. Both support Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. For more information or to download the software, visit http://www.divx.com/divx/mac.
