DV Studio Technologies will exhibit its real time Mpeg-2 encoder at Cebit in Hanover this week, which analysts say may pave the way for products combining Dvd Ram with realtime video editing and compression.
The company hopes that Apollo Expert will create a lot of interest at the show, particularly for its price, which comes in at less than $2,000. A system that handles Dolby Digital audio and professional Mpeg-2 compression, which has become the primary compression format for distributing video, typically costs up to $250,000.
But one of Apollo Expert?s key features, according to DV Studio, is its ease of use. Customers no longer require multiple workstations with several ultra long Isa cards that usually come with noisy fans because the device is half the size of a PCI card and can be easily installed in any Pentium based computer, making it easy for consumers to use.
Werner Glinka, Hitachi America?s senior director of marketing, optical and multimedia products, said: "The Apollo Expert from DV Studio Technologies is a big step in the convergence of digital media products for professional and consumer applications.''
