InterVideo announced today WinDVD® Recorder Platinum 5, the latest version of its digital video recorder (DVR) and DVD player combination software. WinDVD Recorder Platinum 5 delivers high-quality playback and advanced recording technologies in a single solution.
The new software can be used to record video captured from a camcorder, DV camera, digital TV set-top box or a VCR directly to DVD for immediate playback. The same software can be used for TV time-shifting capabilities and to schedule TV broadcast recordings. Features that have also been included are InterVideo Mobile Technology for battery conservation, Intel®'s Hyper-Threading technology for multitasking and a Movie Encyclopedia for online information. These features enhance the viewing and listening experience for both home and mobile users.
WinDVD Recorder Platinum 5 includes InterVideo WinDVD Platinum 5, one of the most popular DVD players, and InterVideo technology for viewing and recording TV programs with a PC. By integrating these technologies with InterVideo's unique direct DVD burning technology, the company cost-effectively delivers the entertainment options most wanted by consumers in one easy-to-use solution.
In addition to being able to watch recorded DVD and DivX® videos at their convenience, WinDVD Recorder Platinum 5 users can take advantage of the software's TV time-shifting capabilities using InterVideo's leading MPEG technology to avoid missing part of their TV program if there is an interruption. They can pause the broadcast at any time, enjoy instant replays and edit recorded programs to delete unwanted segments. With the ability to record directly to disc, rather than having to wait while the video is buffered to the PC's hard drive, WinDVD Recorder Platinum 5 provides a low-cost replacement for a consumer DVD recorder. It can also be used to archive videos and to convert old home movies from VHS tapes to long-lasting CDs or DVDs.
Compatible with Microsoft® Windows® 2000, and XP, WinDVD Recorder Platinum 5 is available at InterVideo's web site, www.intervideo.com
