January 11, 2005

GARDENA, CA – January 11, 2005 – TMPG, Inc. (, the company that makes digital video easy, introduced today its newest application for digital video creation: the TSUNAMI MPEG DVD AUTHOR. Built on the strength of the company’s TSUNAMI MPEG encoder, widely-used since 1998, this new software makes DVD creation easy for home and professional users alike. The first in a series of TMPG products be launched to the retail market, the new TSUNAMI MPEG DVD AUTHOR is available beginning next month at a special North America retail introductory price of $49.95.

Easy to use, even for beginners, the new TSUNAMI MPEG DVD AUTHOR overcomes complication with its easy navigation Wizard that guides users through every step of creating quality DVD -video, audio, chapter creation and more- easily and intuitively. And, its comprehensive support for multiple audio and video formats makes it the most flexible choice. Import video clips from MPEG-1 or -2, AVI, Microsoft® DirectShow®, DVD Video or DVD-VR files; and add audio from MPEG-1 Audio Layer 2, Dolby® Digital (AC-3) or Linear PCM (.wav), or use it for easy editing of materials recorded on a DVR. TSUNAMI MPEG DVD Author creates a finished DVD in standard DVD Video format, with MPEG-1 Audio Layer 2 or Linear PCM sound that, unlike the DVDs that many others’ products output, will play on most DVD players.

TSUNAMI MPEG DVD AUTHOR runs on a Pentium® III 800 Mhz (Pentium 4 recommend) IBM® compatible computer with 256 MB of RAM (512 MB + recommended) running Windows® 2000/XP. And it’s one of the first products in its class with DVD +R double layer support, so, for users with the appropriate DVD burner and media, it can create DVDs with up to 8.5 GB of DVD video on a single disk.

Available beginning in February at retail stores across North America, TSUNAMI MPEG DVD AUTHOR carries a special introductory MSRP of just $49.95, making it not only the best in class for ease of use and features, but the best priced, too.

TMPG joins the international community at large in support for the victims of the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami.
