The Flip4Mac wmv Export Component lets users export Windows Media files from within any QuickTime-based application running on the Mac OS X platform. It supports QuickTime Player, iMovie, Final Cut Pro, and more.
Telestream's new support capabilities for Windows Media on the Mac enable users to create files in standard and high definition using Windows Media in either stereo or 5.1, directly on their Macs. The Telestream solution for Windows Media supports any QuickTime-based application, including Final Cut Pro, iMovie, and QuickTime Player.
Telestream believes the Apple QuickTime-based applications have become an industry standard for content creation and editing while Microsoft Windows Media 9 Series is becoming an industry-standard for efficient media transport. Telestream's new support capability for Windows Media on the Mac bridges this important gap for professional users.
The Flip4Mac wmv Export Component for QuickTime will be available for commercial release in early December 2004. The Flip4Mac wmv Import Component for QuickTime will be available Q1-2005. The Flip4Mac mxf Import Component for QuickTime will be available Q1-2005.
Telestream's new support capabilities for Windows Media on the Mac component enables users to select Windows Media 7, 8, or 9 Series from the list of available formats in the Export function of any QuickTime-based application. Users can either set the desired format parameters, or choose a Windows Media format profile that was previously saved.
Telestream's new support capabilities also allow Mac users to import Windows Media files for editing or simply playing in their QuickTime Players. As the Windows Media 9 Series format continues to be utilized as an efficient format for media transport over IP networks, the ability to import and edit or play those files in QuickTime-based applications becomes more appealing.
A standard version supports standard-definition resolutions, and a pro HD version adds support for high definition, two-pass encoding and 5.1 channel audio, the company adds. Both versions will be available online for commercial release in Q4-2004.
