"Consumers now demand video to be accessible on a variety of devices. That’s why we've added support for Apple's iPad mobile digital device, so users can enjoy their video on this wonderful new product. When Windows 7 users record high definition or standard TV shows via Windows Media Center, the resulting file is in the .wtv format. With MovieStyle, users can convert it to different video formats for use on an iPad, video game console or other portable device" remarked Tak Ebine, Pegasys Inc. CEO.
New iPad support lets users take personal video anywhere they go. Video converted for the iPad can be up to 1024 x 768 resolution for 4:3 clips, or up to 1280 x720 for 16:9 clips. Just drag and drop the video content for easy conversion and playback. Similar to an iPod, iPad video can be quickly transferred to an iTunes library using the included TransManagerTM. Then, simply connect the iPad to a PC and iTunes will automatically transfer the videos to the iPad.
TMPGEnc MovieStyle converts video clips to portable and high definition formats compatible with popular digital devices, including: iPad™, iPod®/iPhone®, Apple® TV, Sony® mylo™ COM-2, PSP™, Playstation® 3, Zune™, Xbox 360™, Nintendo DS™ with PLAY-YAN, Nintendo® Wii™, PDA’s with Windows Media Player, and DivX®. Accepted input formats include AVI, MPEG, MPEG4, Windows Media Video (wmv), QuickTime, H.264, DivX®, DVD-Video/DVD-VR, Media Center PC (WTV, DVR-MS), and MOD (a file format used by JVC Everio HDD camcorders). HDV camcorder files are also supported.
The MovieStyle interface is easy to use. Simply select a device, then drag and drop video clips to begin converting. The converting templates eliminate guesswork and save time. It will also import a DVD (copy-protected DVD's cannot be imported), or DVD-VR and WTV/DVR-MS (Windows Media Center) recordings.
The .wtv file format replaces the. dvr-ms file format and both .wtv and .dvr-ms files can be imported. Windows Media Center is included in most Windows 7 editions, Windows Vista (Home Premium, Ultimate) and Windows XP (Media Center Edition). All that is needed is a TV Tuner device to watch and record live TV broadcasts.
The Quick Encode feature converts video clips without opening MovieStyle. Simply right-click the video clip and select the digital device from the drop-down menu. The Drop Folder feature lets users specify a folder for MovieStyle to monitor. When a video clip is saved in the folder, the software will automatically convert it for the user-specified device.
Cinema Mode converts video to 24 frames per second for PSP users. Karaoke Mode, cancels out vocals from the audio track, and uses the Pitch Changer settings to alter the audio pitch. The Audio Only option (not available for all devices) can convert video into an audio file. Time Stretch can convert video to play either 50% slower or faster with understandable audio.
