InterVideo announced InterVideo iVideoToGo, the easiest way to copy personal videos for playback on a video-enabled iPod
Priced at only $29.95, the software is a 3-step solution that lets users quickly convert their existing DVDs and video files into iPod-compatible files that provide smooth, flawless playback.
Easily one of the fastest conversion tools on the market, iVideoToGo is equipped with a simple, friendly interface and it utilizes a single window for all tasks. And with just three steps to complete the copy process, there's no learning curve -- even a beginner can have immediate success.
"With iVideoToGo, iPod users are no longer limited to the pre-formatted videos that are available," said Steve Ro, president and CEO of InterVideo. "InterVideo has solved the conversion problem so consumers can now enjoy their personal videos, music and photos wherever they go without sacrificing quality."
The 30GB 5G iPod (with video), which was released mid-October 2005 supports the MPEG4 and H.264 video formats and stores more than 150 hours of video. According to American Technology Research, sales of Apple's(R) video-enabled fifth-generation iPod are stronger than expected and in some cases are outselling even the very popular iPod nano.
In addition to supporting the iPod's H.264/MPEG-4 formats iVideoToGo supports DVD-Videos, AVI, MPEG, WMV, MOV, MP4, DivX(R), ASF, DVR-MS, 3GP and others -- more than any other program of its kind.
To deliver support for these formats, iVideoToGo includes InterVideo's innovative H.264 codec technology. H.264, which is also known as the Advanced Video Codec (AVC) specification or MPEG 4-Part 10, provides two to three times the compression efficiency of current solutions such as the MPEG-2 standard, enabling iVideoToGo users to pack even more movies and music on their iPods.
InterVideo iVideoToGo is available at InterVideo's web site, www.intervideo.com, and will be in retail outlets worldwide in the near future. Compatible with Windows(R) 2000 and XP systems, the suggested list price is $29.95 USD.
