"We are pleased to announce the upcoming launch of our flagship authoring software, which will enable our users to create high-quality H.264/AVC encoded Blu-ray Discs and AVCHD files with the easy-to-use interface they expect from Pegasys software. Combined with the Pegasys Smart Rendering engine, which allows lossless editing and now supports H.264/AVC video in addition to MPEG-2 video, creating a DVD, Blu-ray or AVCHD project will be faster than ever" commented Tak Ebine, Pegasys CEO.

New output features include the use of the world-renowned x264 encoding engine for H.264/AVC Blu-ray and AVCHD output. In addition, users can utilize their NVIDIA CUDA or Intel Media SDK (Quick Sync Video) hardware for H.264 encoding and decoding. TMPGEnc Movie Plug-in SpursEngine is also supported, allowing SpursEngine MPEG-2 and H.264/AVC hardware encoding. Users with AVCHD camcorders can now input and output the AVCHD file format with little image degradation. AVCHD output is possible in these formats: for playback on AVCHD Progressive devices, DVD media, and hard drives/SD memory cards.

All-new and improved input and editing features help create DVD, Blu-ray and AVCHD projects with stunning professional results. Up to 8 subtitle streams (up to 2 for AVCHD output) and 4 audio streams can be added to expand the reach of any project. The improved MPEG-TS file analyzer displays all available video, audio and subtitle streams enabling selection of the desired streams from the BD folder or TS file. Dolby Digital Plus audio is now a supported input format. The updated Smart Rendering engine allows lossless editing of MPEG-2 and H.264/AVC files as long as they are compliant with the output format. The Smart Rendering engine also officially supports videos taken on GoPro cameras. Owners of our video encoding software, TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5, can import their project files as a clip, eliminating the need to encode the projects beforehand.
