[5:00 PM] MPEG2 Encoding Software Now Available
by Staff

Medio Systems announced that it will begin shipping a real-time software MPEG2 encoder called Medio MVision. It can support up to full D1 resolution. According to Medio Systems:

Because of its advanced algorithms, Medio Systems is able to create real-time D1 resolution encoding in MPEG2 on MMX-enabled computers. This will enable many applications, including Internet video streaming, live casting, digital VCRs, Internet video phones, time shifting, DVD authoring, distant learning, video e-mail, and many other consumer and corporate applications. It will also make them affordable to the mass markets.

In light of its advanced algorithm, Medio MVision compresses D1 resolution video on the fly without causing any motion artifacts. Medio MVision runs on any Pentium III or Athlon PC over 600MHz. Slower PCs will also be able to run Medio MVision with scaled down frame rate or resolution.

In addition, Medio MVision can produce program stream or audio/video elementary stream. It will soon support transport stream.

MVision costs US$39 and you can find more information at Medio Systems' site.
