More Info

The Sorenson Media Squeeze 8.5 Pro Video Encoder lets you flexibly encode/transcode video in a wide array of formats in superior quality for most any viewing devices including plasmas, tablets, and smart-phones.

8.5 Pro encodes from AVID, Final Cut or Premiere and can send large jobs to an optional Squeeze Server. Fine-grain controls are available for H.264, Quicktime, Flash, Windows Media and WebM, and GPU acceleration encodes H.264 up to 3x faster and additionally provides the benefit of accelerated parallel processing. A broadcast / disc creation feature creates ATSC HD, DVB, and MPEG transport and program streams, and Blu-rays in H.264, VC-1 or MPEG-2 with AC3 audio. Adaptive bitrate streaming easily prepares, encodes and segments all major flavors: Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth, and Flash Dynamic Streaming.

The formats and features offered include Apple ProRes encoding (OSX Only), DNxHD encoding, review and approval, GPU acceleration - Cuda, Apple HLS, Adobe Flash Dynamic (Windows only), Microsoft Smooth Streaming, watch folders, simultaneous compression, notifications, publishing options, Sorenson 360 integration, Adobe Premiere integration, Final Cut 7 integration, Avid integration, Squeeze Server integration, Professional audio and video filters, Job window edit workspace and settings, encode preview, Dolby AC3 consumer stereo, BIAS SoundSoap, Quick Time exporters, Flash FLV, Flash SWF, MPEG-4 (MainConcept, x264, Apple, Sorenson Media), QuickTime, WebM, Matroska, Windows Media, MPEG-1 MPEG-2, MP3, Ogg, WMA, M4A, AAC, and MPEG transport stream.
