MedioStream, a leading provider of PC-based software for recording video to DVDs and CDs, today announced that internal testing shows that on comparable systems and at comparable video quality, its neoDVD 4.0 suite is not only the fastest consumer software currently available on the market for burning video files to DVD, but also the only software that can deliver faster than real-time performance when converting DV AVI files to DVD. On a Pentium 4 2GHz PC, MedioStream's tests show that neoDVD 4.0, is able to burn a 20-minute DV AVI file onto a DVD+RW disc in 18 minutes, which is half the time it takes its nearest competitor to do the same.
What makes neoDVD 4.0 faster than its competitors is the result of MedioStream's commitment to continually improve its high-performance codec technology. MedioStream proprietary technology includes the industry's first real-time MPEG-2 encoder, which significantly speeds the DVD authoring process. In addition, MedioStream's "Direct-to-Disc Recording" feature, compatible with all commercially available DVD+RW drives, allows users to burn DVDs in a simple, truly one-step process, without having to use the PC first as a buffer to create a disc image for burning.
Fastest Burner in the World
"We were the first to deliver real-time performance and these tests back up our claim that we are faster than other DVD authoring solutions on the market today," said Gordon Doran, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MedioStream. "When someone wants to burn a DVD, they look at two things: how easy it is to do and how long it will take.. MedioStream's neoDVD suite of software provides the right answers to these questions at the right price for the average consumer."
neoDVD 4.0 is not only the fastest software solution for burning DVDs with newer, faster computers, but also with slower systems, neoDVD 4.0 maintains its speed advantage over its competitors in testing on 1.1Ghz and 1.3 Ghz computers.
