The software's performance is enhanced with direct burn capabilities that enables users to copy directly from the source to a blank disc without having to buffer the video to the hard drive first. Unique to InterVideo is the Multiple DVD Merging feature that can be used to group DVD videos of vacations, birthdays, a child's entire soccer season or other special events onto a single DVD. By designing this feature with automatic menu generation, InterVideo makes the entire process fast and easy.
DVD Copy 2 provides a wizard-like interface. Users select the source, destination (CD-R/RW, DVD+/-R/RW/-RAM disc or hard drive) and the video output format (DVD, VCD, SVCD, DivX(R), or M-DVD). When the user clicks on the burn button, the software's Autofit feature automatically determines how much compression is needed to produce the best-looking results for the output selected. With this feature, users can make copies of dual-layer DVD-Videos onto a single blank DVD without any visual quality loss. The Autofit feature can also be used with the software's support for the DivX format to fit a DVD video onto a single DivX CD.
After copying a DVD-Video to their PC's hard drive in the MPEG-1, MPEG-2 or DivX format, users click on the software's Customize Button to add and delete chapters, remove subtitles and audio tracks, or change the aspect ratio. By including InterVideo's UniPass technology, DVD Copy 2 users do not need to re-render videos that have simple editing fixes because the technology integrates DVD creation and editing together. This can save hours of time when making copies.
InterVideo DVD Copy 2 is available today at InterVideo's web site and will be at retail outlets around the world within the next few weeks.
