Though most NLE software has some facilities for transcoding video, nothing beats a dedicated solution. Sorenson Media Squeeze Desktop 10 Pro boasts wider codec support and in many cases faster encode times than one will see with encoders built into editing software. Incorporating all of the features of the Standard version, Pro additionally offers closed caption insertion, HEVC/x265 encoding and decoding, ProRes encoding on Mac, and Avid DNxHD encoding. New features of note for version 10 include, the VP9 codec replacing VP8 for up to 50% lighter files, Multi-Rate Bundle Encoding to save time, HLS encryption where security is paramount, and two preliminary 4K presets. For seamless integration with your editor, Squeeze works as a plugin with Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro 7, and Adobe Premiere Pro. This copy of the software is an electronic download, upgrade license for users of Squeeze 9 Pro.

Long gone are the days when an editor could just export to DVD or print to tape and be done with the footage. These days it is essential to be ready to deliver files optimized for everything from a smartphone (perhaps even a watch) up to a 4K projector. With Squeeze, the palate of codec choices means you can find a setting perfect for just about any scenario - including output to the new HEVC/x265, which claims to achieve the same quality in half the bitrate of H.264. Editors will also appreciate being able to convert highly compressed camera footage - like MPEG-4 - to a mezzanine codec such as Avid DNxHD or ProRes for easier editing. Alternatively, professional formats which are too big - like RED files - can be down-converted, allowing the creation of space- and processor- friendly proxy files. For users who still do need to deliver to tape or disc - Squeeze has those formats covered as well.

What's New for Version 10?

  • HEVC/x265 video encoding and decoding
  • VP9 encoding and decoding
  • Closed caption insertion
  • HLS encryption support
  • HLS audio only stream
  • Multi-Rate Bundle Encoding (Apple HLS, Adobe Dynamic Streaming, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, MPEG DASH, and MP4)
  • Simple format conversion converts a video to MP4, MOV, and/or MKV
  • 4K presets included


Avid DNxHD Support
Transcode into Avid DNxHD (VC-3 Compliant Video Bitstreams) with Squeeze - perfect for preparing media for Avid Media Composer, NewsCutter, and Symphony
Apple ProRes (Mac Only)
Output to Apple ProRes for editing in FCP X or other software that reads ProRes - for licensing reasons, this feature is only supported on OS X
Multi-Rate Bundle Encoding
Saves time by automatically packaging files for Apple HLS, Adobe Dynamic Streaming, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, MPEG DASH, and MP4 downloads by only encoding each data rate once and then packaging everything into multiple formats
HEVC/x265 Support
Intended as a successor to H.264, HEVC/x265 is designed to double the data compression compared to prior standards at the same level of video quality. This means better video quality at lower bitrates - especially beneficial when delivering high resolution video - such as 4K -over the Web
4K Presets
Two 4K presets have been added, one for H.264 and one for HEVC/x265
New for 10 Sorenson Media have included VP9, the successor to VP8. VP9 reduces the bit rate by up to 50% compared to VP8
HLS Encryption
This HLS security feature utilizes customized root URLs in manifest files in order to serve index files and media files from different locations
Closed Captioning Insertion
Support for EIA-608 and CEA-708 closed captioning in source video and corresponding TTML output. Also, previously inserted closed caption pass-through
