Dec 7, 2017

Tokyo, Japan - Dec 7, 2017 -
Pegasys Inc., the company that takes video to the next level, announces the English version of TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 will be released on December 14, 2017. The successor to TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus, this dedicated video file management software has been completely overhauled using feedback from users to bring exciting new features in an even easier to use interface.

"If you're dedicated, there's nothing you can't do."

"TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2" is a dedicated application that can centrally manage browsing, searching, classification, comparison, and more of the many movie files saved on a user's computer. Recently, recording or content formats have largely migrated from pictures to movies because of the progression of technology such as the communications infrastructure or smart phones. Now, an over-abundance of video files can occupy a PC's hard drive, and a solution is needed to manage this continuously increasing amount of video files. That solution is TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2.

In this new version, most of the interfaces have been improved based on the feedback from the previous version's users, and provides a multitude of new and improved functions such as digest movie playback via a simple mouseover, adding chapters using commercial candidates detection, double speed playback with audio, and more. In addition, this version supports H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC hardware encoding by using Intel™ Quick Sync Video, NVIDIA NVENC and AMD Media SDK(VCE) technologies. "Linking with TMPGEnc products", "Karma Level" and other brand-new functions help refine this version to be more convenient and enjoyable.
