Tomsk, Russia, June 12, 2009 --(PR.com)-- ­ Elecard Devices CJSC, a leading developer of codecs and products for digital video, today announced the release of Elecard Converter Studio v3.2, a software package for the high speed and top-notch multifunctional video conversion.

Available today in five different packs targeting several kinds of consumers from newbies to industry's first rate professionals, Elecard Converter Studio has become more than just another video conversion software. It is now even easier to use thanks to the new graphical user interface and the countless improvements that were made in the new version.

“The program sports a brand new stylish look that will perfectly fit into your working environment and won't stand out as an ancient fossil”, said Jeffrey Hansen, content preparation specialist. “Plus the functionality and all the features it offers will really make you feel like you've finally found what you've been looking for so long. And I'm not just saying that, I tried out a lot of different software before I ran across Converter Studio and it really does the job”.

The denoising filter implemented in the new version makes possible visual improvement of the picture by reducing high-frequency noise. The filter works in a software mode, however if you have an nVidia adapter supporting the nVidia CUDA technology, the filter will work in a hardware mode and the denoising process will not affect the speed of encoding. Developers have also added support for two-pass AVC encoding to ensure better video quality.

Now you can encode your videos into MPEG-1 format and then mux them into SystemStream. In case you want to mux uncompressed audio files (PCM) into Program stream, all you have to do is choose the needed profile. Also added is the ability to place Teletext subtitles on video during transcoding. The feature of FOURCC format displaying will sure ease your life by letting you know which format the input file is in. And finally, now you can encode all your videos into the popular AVCHD® format for camcorders.
