Sorenson Squeeze 4.5 Compression Suite

Sorenson Squeeze Suite 4.5 is the industry-leading video encoding tool, enabling users to efficiently re-purpose video content for web, CD or DVD applications. It includes Sorenson Video 3 Pro, Sorenson Spark Pro, Sorenson MPEG-4 Pro and Sorenson AVC Pro video codecs.

Easily Compress High-Quality Video for Multiple Formats
Sorenson Squeeze 4.1 Compression Suite is the first full-featured compression application to incorporate High Definition (HD) encoding for a variety of video formats including - MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, QuickTime, RealMedia, and Windows Media. Simply purchase the Telestream plug-in for the Sorenson Squeeze 4.1 Compression Suite (for the Mac), which enables video encoding of Windows Media 9. The Suite also compresses the highest-quality video for Macromedia Flash files.

Sorenson Media has added the Sorenson AVC Pro codec (also known as H.264) to the Sorenson Squeeze 4.1 Compression Suite. This codec offers unparalleled encoding efficiency by creating the high-quality video at roughly 70 percent the standard MPEG-4 codec!

While most compression tools are cumbersome, with steep learning curves, Squeeze is easy to use and requires no in-depth knowledge of the complexities of compression technology. Squeeze 4.1 reduces your digital video to a fraction of its original size, allowing you to pack more onto CDs and DVDs or to stream across the Internet much more affordably.

Built for all of the Sorenson Media professional codecs and popular third-party codecs, the Sorenson Squeeze 4.1 Compression Suite enables you to easily deliver a variety of output formats, sizes, and bit rates. Simply take your edited, uncompressed video from popular tools such as Avid Xpress DV, Apple Final Cut, and Adobe Premiere or bring your digital video from your source straight into Squeeze 4.1. Encoding video is as easy as selecting an intelligent present for your intended audience and clicking the "Squeeze It" button.

Leverage New Time-Saving Features
The new NLE shortcut keys mean you can do more in less time. Squeeze 4.1 also comes with improved intelligent presets, which can be customized and even saved for later projects. You can even use the new in/out preview markers to preview a segment of video before you encode the entire video.

With Squeeze 4.1 you can also customize the interface to fit your workflow. Simply detach and resize the preview window for full-screen previews, or move it to a second monitor - Squeeze 4.1 remembers where you drag and drop the windows. The new video zoom tool helps you to achieve pixel-perfect cropping, while improved filter capabilities eliminate blotches around black and white restored pixels.

Additionally, Squeeze 4.1 offers many advanced features that experienced multimedia producers demand such as batch processing with the capability to apply filter and compression settings at the job, source, or output level. This means you can apply different settings to multiple videos within a batch - locally or globally. Now with batch processing, there's no need to stop compression in order to edit or add more videos to the batch, and you can edit settings for jobs further down in the batch while another job is compressing.
