Nero has announced the release of Nero Digital Pro, an audio and video compression solution bundled with full versions of five different applications: Nero Recode 2, Nero ShowTime 2, Nero PhotoSnap, Nero MediaHome, and NeroVision Express 3. Nero Digital Pro is an upgrade from the Nero Digital 30-Day Trial version recently offered to provide the user with an opportunity to create, play, and share Nero Digital content for a limited time.
With Nero Recode 2, non-copy-protected DVD films can be compressed into Nero Digital format yet still offer top quality video. User can then playback Nero Digital format with Nero ShowTime 2. With Nero MediaHome, users can then share Nero Digital content through any UPnP or DLNA-compliant multimedia device, PC, or laptop in a home network. With NeroVision Express 3, videos can be captured, edited, and exported to Nero Digital file format. In addition, Nero Digital Pro also contains the full version of Nero PhotoSnap editor and PhotoSnap Viewer. Nero PhotoSnap offers a variety of functions for digitally processing photos.
Nero Digital is a complete audio/video codec solution based on the MPEG-4 standard, but also supports the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec, already adapted as a mandatory codec for future standards, such as HD DVD and Blu-ray. Its compression technology allows for large volumes of data to be saved. Video material is compressed to about 20% of its original volume, delivering top quality results that can be shared and used on mobile devices. Nero Digital videos can be played back on PCs running the Nero Digital codec and on the growing number of certified Nero Digital consumer electronic devices.
