The Nero Digital audio and video compression system, co-developed with multimedia algorithm developer ATEME, is a non-proprietary extension of MPEG-4. Nero's solution adds many DVD-like features that consumers expect in a home theater experience such as multiple AAC audio tracks, surround sound, chapters, and subtitles.
To demonstrate the what Nero brings to the PC-to-home theater experience, Packard Bell's DVD player includes a CD with 30-day trial version of three must-have Nero applications to Create, Play and Share Nero Digital format: Nero Recode, Nero ShowTime, and Nero MediaHome. Nero Recode is the world's fastest, most flexible application for converting non-protected movies into Nero Digital MPEG-4. Nero ShowTime plays all types of video regardless of the source.
Whether digital camera, DVDs or high-definition MPEG-4 AVC content, Nero ShowTime guarantees excellent picture and sound quality, according to Nero. Nero MediaHome optimizes a user's audio and video files and streams them across the home network to any compatible device, including another PC or notebook running Nero ShowTime.
The Packard Bell DVD-DivX 450 pro player with Nero Digital is now shipping and available through many consumer electronics retailers and online stores. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is €79. For more information on Nero Digital, visit www.nerodigital.com. To learn more about Packard Bell, visit www.packardbell.com.
