Digigami has announced it is now shipping MegaPEG HDTV for Macintosh OS X-based laptops and workstations, its flagship MPEG-2 encoder for compressing HD video into standards-compliant MPEG-2 bitstreams.
The product creates streams compatible with ATSC (North American), ISDB-T and EBU standards for HD, and can perform format conversion on the fly, including SD up-conversion and HD down-conversion and conversion from ATSC to EBU and vice-versa.
MegaPEG HDTV includes an integrated picture quality analysis (PQA) tool with the same features as Digigami MPressionist Pro HD. Any HD encoding job can be paused and the intermediate compression results analyzed to ensure that the stream meets quality expectations.
