Gardena, CA - July 31, 2008 - TMPG, Inc. (www.tmpg -inc.com), the company that makes digital video easy, is introducing German language versions of TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 3 and the latest TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress update. The new German language software is now available at the www.tmpg -inc.com Deutsch language site.


"Our software is popular throughout Europe. We have had many requests for a German version of our new updated TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress encoder for its additional high definition video and Blu -ray functionality. TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 3 has also been in demand worldwide. We are pleased to offer both of these programs to our German speaking customers," stated Kimi Matsuki, TMPG CEO.

TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress Update Features
AVCHD Format - Input Support
AVCHD input support is a requested feature by TMPGEnc users. AVCHD is a HD tapeless video format used in many of today's HD camcorders (such as Sony, Panasonic, and Canon). With AVCHD input support, TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress users can now cut -edit, apply filters and convert AVCHD footage into a video format of choice.

HD MPEG -4 AVC/H.264 - Output Support
Users can now output video in the MPEG -4 AVC format at high definition. This will allow users to take advantage of the format's high compression rates at high definition resolutions.

Blu -ray BDAV/BDMV MPEG -2 Output Template
Users can now output to the increasingly popular Blu -ray video format.

Other added features include:
The popular AAC audio format can now be used as an audio source in MPEG -2 transport streams. MPEG -4 video input support is now embedded into TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress without the help of QuickTime.

TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 3 Features
Complete High Definition Video Editing and Output
Users can capture video directly from a HDV camcorder to TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 3 via an i.LINK/IEEE 1394 interface, edit their footage, then output and burn to Blu -ray Disc (BDAV format).

Easy DVD Authoring
A new feature is the ability to output and burn to DVD -Video. The user can even create a simple DVD menu (fixed template). A Writing Tool is also included for users that have video content ready for burning to Blu -ray Disc or DVD.

Video Transition Effects
The Transition Editor allows users to choose a transition effect, set the duration, and preview the video. The new Transition Selector helps make it easier to find the type of transition the user is looking for among the 171 available effects.
