Pegasys Inc., the company that takes video to the next level, announces the upcoming release of the English version of TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5, the successor to TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress, in the 1st Quarter of 2011. The new software will make it possible to not only create materials, but also will bring creative, original video mastering and output in the best formats available. Purchasers of the popular TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress after January 5, 2011 can upgrade to TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5 for free once it is released. The retail price will be $99.95.

"Video now has to be quickly and easily created to be viewed in high definition, or for video sharing websites, or mobile devices offering video playback, and more. Currently, these types of output displays have become the main and most often targeted use of video. We re-examined what constitutes an encoder, and decided to release a new mastering system to answer the emerging demands of videographers," commented Tak Ebine, Pegasys CEO.

The all-new timeline editing mode of TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5. TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5 includes improved editing or filtering functions, popular MKV or WebM format support, and other new features, which are expanding the limits of the encoder, becoming a complete encoding solution. It also supports many input and output formats, detailed parameter settings, and features a fast and precise cut-edit function, video format conversion, compression, material creation and much more!

Previous generations of encoders were used to compress high quality videos, making them small enough to fit into hard disk drives with small capacities, or often tasked to meet the DVD-Video, BD or other specific format requirements. Market demand for video anytime and anywhere has greatly expanded the software feature set required to generate popular video formats.
