Grass Valley Announces New Canopus FireCoder

The Grass Valley business within Thomson announced the new Canopus FireCoder, a PCI Express-based hardware encoder that converts video files to MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 formats for use in DVD, iPod and PSP-compatible applications.

The Canopus FireCoder features a built-in 6-pin OHCI IEEE1394 interface for capture, editing and exporting of DV and HDV footage. FireCoder incorporates a host of productivity enhancements, including Ultracoder, MPEGcraft 3 DVD and an EDIUS plug-in, that give users the ability to convert video files to MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 formats using hardware acceleration to encode faster than realtime, trim MPEG clips quickly, combine multiple files, batch convert files, as well as automate conversion using watch folders.

In addition, since MPEG encoding is processed by dedicated hardware and not the systemís CPU, users can continue working even while they encode.

In addition to MPEG-2 and MPEG-4, FireCoder supports encoding of MPEG-1, DivX and WMV.

FireCoder hardware encoder is currently available from Canopus and its authorized dealers and system integrators for a suggested retail price of $399.
