CyberLink introduced InstantMPEG, technology that saves hard disk space and time during real-time conversion of digital video (DV) into MPEG files.
InstantMPEG is the encoding technology that is used in PowerDirector 3 and PowerProducer 2 Gold. InstantMPEG takes DV camcorder video and converts it into MPEG formats in real-time, without needing to transfer the video into AVI format first.
With AVI files noticeably larger than MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 files, InstantMPEG lets users save valuable hard disk space after the conversion process. And because video is directly transferred into MPEG format, users also save valuable time by eliminating the traditional step of needing to convert files from AVI to MPEG after capturing.
