InterVideo announced today InterVideo DVD Copy, a fast and easy way to make 1:1
copies of personal DVDs and CDs without any loss of quality. DVD Copy records in a single pass, rather than making the user wait while the video is buffered on the hard drive before recording.
With direct, disc-to-disc recording, users can make archive and backup copies
of their DVD movies and home videos up to 45 percent faster than other solutions
that are currently available. InterVideo DVD Copy does not support copying CSS-encrypted
"DVD Copy empowers users to create duplicates of their DVD movies to share with
friends and family, to take with them when traveling, and to protect irreplaceable
memories by making a backup copy," explained Steve Ro, CEO and co-founder of
InterVideo. "Even people who don't own a DVD burner can still back up their DVDs,
because DVD Copy also lets you copy a DVD-Video onto multiple CDs in the VideoCD
(VCD) or SuperVideoCD (SVCD) format. CDs and DVDs created by DVD Copy can be
played back on most living room set-top DVD players."
With DVD Copy's intuitive, single-screen interface, even a novice can create
duplicates of their DVD movies in just three quick, easy steps. Users simply
select the source, destination (CD-R/RW, DVD+/-R/RW/-RAM disc or hard drive)
and video format (DVD, VCD, SVCD or DivX®).
In addition to its direct burn capabilities, InterVideo DVD Copy offers
key features that differentiate it from the competition, including:
The ability to copy DVD movies from multiple folders on the hard drive. Most
competitors only support one VIDEO_TS folder loading, but with DVD Copy, users
can load as many as they can fit onto a disc.
Support for the DivX® format which enable users to fit a DVD onto a single, 700MB
InterVideo's codec with a proven track record for delivering true, quality
copies. With DVD Copy, users can copy their DVDs, VCDs and SVCDs without transcoding,
so there is no loss of quality. The codec also enables users to create
copies of dual-layer DVD-Videos onto two blank DVDs without losing any of the
content or video quality.
InterVideo DVD Copy can also be used to replicate personal DVD-Videos onto a
PC hard drive in the MPEG-1, MPEG-2 or DivX® format for editing. Once the videos
are on the hard drive, users can click on DVD Copy's Customize Button to select
the chapters, audio and subtitle features they want to include in their DVD or
CD. This feature gives consumers the flexibility to tailor the home videos they
want to share. It also enables businesses to quickly customize marketing and
DVD Copy is available at InterVideo's web site, www.intervideo.com
, with an MSRP
of $59.95 and will soon be in leading retail stores. DVD Copy is compatible with
Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP systems.
