The full version of the TMPGEnc Movie Plug -In SpursEngine is available now for $49.95 or can be purchased along with TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress for $149.90.


"Now you can test the incredible processing speeds achieved with SpursEngine video technology and our award -winning TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress software free for two weeks. With this technology you can upscale standard video to a better, higher resolution video. If you have an NVIDIA CUDA graphics card you can experience the fastest speeds available today. TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress plus Toshiba's SpursEngine technology is the ultimate combination for H.264 and MPEG -2 processing available today," commented Tak EBINE, Pegasys CEO.

Toshiba's SpursEngine, a co -processor that uses four Synergistic Processing Element (SPE) cores based on the "Cell Broadband Engine™", offers high -speed calculations to perform the huge number of processes to transcode/encode standard video into crystal clear 1920_1080 High Definition (HD) video. It offers high performance media streaming, with a fast clock frequency of 1.5GHz, and an ultra -low power consumption range of 10W to 20W. It can also off -load decoding and encoding of MPEG -2 and H.264 from the CPU to SpursEngine devices.

Currently supported devices with SpursEngine include the upcoming LeadTek WinFast PxVC1100 transcoding card, Canopus' FIRECODER Blu card and select Toshiba Qosmio series laptop computers.

The ultimate combination of TMPGEnc Movie Plug -in SpursEngine and TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress allows users to take control of the encoder circuits included in the SpursEngine and experience incredible output processing speeds even with the CPU demanding tasks such as high -definition video processing. In addition, everything that the SpursEngine cannot do, such as audio encoding or video and audio multiplexing, is performed by TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress. Users that also have an NVIDIA CUDA graphics card can see a total speed increase of up to 588%. See product webpage for benchmark details.
