In addition to performance and compatibility features that enhance and expand the DVD Copy experience, the update offers Windows Vista certification for consumers migrating to Microsoft's latest operating system. New capabilities available with the DVD Copy update include support for video recorded by TiVo® Series 2 digital video recorders, the ability to convert personal videos and TV shows for Zune portable players and support for the highest quality video supported by the 5th generation iPod.
For even faster conversions, the patch optimizes DVD Copy for Intel Core 2 Duo processors. By converting video files into the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC format, users can pack 85 hours of high-quality video into a 30GB video iPod or about 2.5 hours on a 1GB PSP memory stick. The new high-resolution 640x480 (4:3 standard) and 640x352 (16:9 widescreen) output capabilities give users an easy way to enjoy their personal videos on their living room TV in stunning near-DVD quality.
Consumers can use the DVD Copy update with their Windows XP system today to enjoy the new TiVo, Zune and Core 2 Duo optimization features. For users who have already migrated to Windows Vista, the update also includes Works with Windows Vista certified support. With support for virtually all formats, including Dual-layer DVDs, DivX, and HDV, DVD Copy 5 Platinum is a universal solution for protecting, sharing and converting files to meet the needs of today's more mobile users.
