SD encoder PC


Cinema Craft® Encoder SP3 is the premiere software MPEG1 and MPEG2 encoder selected by Hollywood studios for DVD. The CCE Xtream (CCX) engine is unmatched in quality and speed. Includes standalone application only. Windows Vista/7.

Cinema Craft Encoder SP3 (CCE-SP3) is an MPEG1 and MPEG2 software encoder that enables you to create the highest level of picture quality at high speed. There is a growing need for higher picture quality in the DVD production industry.

With support for multi-core systems, CCE-SP3 can do multi-pass encoding faster than real-time! The choice of Hollywood studios, CCE-SP3 includes the Cinema Craft Xtream (CCX) encode engine, highly rated by compressionists worldwide and used to create many Hollywood and commercial DVD titles.

Cinema Craft Encoder SP3 is a standalone MPEG encoder application with batch encoding capability. It does not include a plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro.

CCE-SP3 is not available as a download and has no testdrive. It is boxed with a CDROM and has a USB dongle.
