Formac Introduces New Mac DVD Authoring Software with DVD-R/RW Bundle
Posted Dec 17, 2002 Print Version     Page 1of 1

Formac Electronic Inc., a leading manufacturer of performance-enhancing peripherals and advanced visualization solutions, has announced the second release of its DVD authoring software. Formac's new devideon x.2 software allows users to custom-design DVD menus, add chapters and use parallel encoding to accelerate the DVD creation process. The software ships with Formac's next-generation devideon superdrive, incorporating the latest Pioneer A05 mechanism with its 4X DVD writing speed. Existing customers can download the software for free at Formac's Web site. Formac devideon x.2 is compatible with Apple's FireWire G3, G4, iMac, PowerBook, and iBook computers and works on OS9 and OSX platforms. Formac's devideon(TM) x.2 software features a new intuitive interface, allowing users to create their own DVD menu in few easy steps. Text, pictures and movie chapters can be added by simple drag-and-drop. Size, color, position and other settings can be adjusted via an intuitive tool window. To increase encoding speed, Formac's devideon x.2 takes advantage of a proprietary PARENC routine, encoding several movie chapters simultaneously to MPEG-2. To further improve the encoding performance, the new software comes with a customized devideon screen-saver for OSX. Once activated, the screen-saver identifies and turns off redundant processes, focusing all available processing power on the encoding task. The devideon software also allows users to select the encoding quality of video and audio, allowing the user to record up to six hours of video on one DVD media. Formac's devideon(TM) software works only in combination with Formac's devideon superdrive. A limited trial mode of the devideon x.2 software allows users to encode up to two chapters with 10 minutes of video (DVD mode). Formac's devideon x.2 is shipping now with the new devideon superdrive. The bundle is available through Formac Certified Resellers and online at Formac's Web site for a suggested retail price of $399. Existing devideon owners can download the new software release for free on Formac's Web site.
