Pegasys TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress Video Encoder Now Available

Videographers Get Ready for Fast Encoding and Processing of Video Footage

Pegasys, Inc. announced today that the complete retail version of the new TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress Video Encoder with NVIDIA CUDA technology is now available for purchase via tmpg-inc.com. The new NVIDIA CUDA technology offloads much of the processing required for TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress from the CPU to the graphics-processing unit (GPU). The software shows up to a 446% performance increase over the CPU-only version. System performance may vary with the user’s computing environment.

The future of video processing is here. Pegasys incorporated CUDA technology for filter processing into its popular video encoding software, TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress. Users can now tap into the graphics processing power that CUDA technology offers by offloading the video decoding and filtering processes onto the GPU to prevent the CPU from slowing down from too much data to quickly process. Pegasys is also working with NVIDIA to expand the GPU’s processing power to include encoding functions in the future.

NVIDIA’s CUDA technology is the world’s only C language environment for the GPU. It enables programmers and developers to create software for quickly solving complicated computation problems using GPU multi-core parallel processing capabilities. The latest generation of NVIDIA GeForce GPUs offers up to 240 processor cores, compared to a maximum of the four cores found on high-end CPU’s. Any process that can be divided into multiple elements and run in parallel can be programmed to take advantage of the massive processing potential of the GPU.

Additional Features of TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress include:

Convert AVCHD Footage
AVCHD is a HD tape less video format used in many of today’s HD camcorders (such as Sony, Panasonic, and Canon). With AVCHD input support, TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress users can now cut-edit, apply filters and convert AVCHD footage into a high definition video format.

HD MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 – Output Support
Users can output to the MPEG-4 AVC format at high definition. This gives users the ability to take advantage of the format’s high compression rates at high definition resolutions.
