Canopus Engineered with hardware-based MPEG Product Details

Create Portable and DVD-ready Video - Blazingly Fast! Engineered with hardware-based MPEG encoding technology, and designed with a PCI Express form factor, FireCoder generates MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 files at blistering, faster-than-realtime speeds. FireCoder is as versatile, as it is speedy! Use FireCoder to: ^^ Capture video from DV and HDV cameras ^^ Edit MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, including native HDV ^^ Author and burn DVDs ^^ Convert video into files compatible with Apple iPod and Sony PSP ^^ Export video projects from Grass Valley EDIUS and Adobe Premiere Pro 1.x NLE software The hardware-software combination featured in the FireCoder package provides a variety of ways to help you reduce the time it takes you to prepare your video. Powered by Hardware, Driven by Software Even with today's high-speed PCs, the time you spend waiting for your video projects to encode to MPEG format for DVDs or portable media devices can still stretch out to unbearable lengths. Instead of relying solely on the PC's CPU (as do software-only video editing, DVD authoring and format conversion products), the onboard MPEG encoding chip engineered into the FireCoder PCI Express board handles the tough encoding tasks. The advantages of FireCoder are two-fold: ^^ Speed - Create MPEG-2 files for DVDs and MPEG-4 files for portable media devices much faster - often more than twice the speed of realtime in most cases ^^ Productivity - Free up your CPU for other work, while your video is being encoded.
