Amped DVRConv Update 20711: Important New Formats and Codecs

Format and codec conversion is a huge part of any video lab’s workload.

Amped DVRConv Update 17521: H.264 Quality Settings and New Formats

Today we bring you a new update to our powerful conversion software Amped DVRConv. Our development team continues to work diligently to ensure we can convert those proprietary videos you struggle to view.

In today’s update, we have added more formats that DVRConv can reliably convert for you as well as introducing H.264 quality settings which we have been recently rolling out to our other software packages.

H.264 Quality

In Update 16112 of Amped FIVE, we introduced the following quality settings for exporting H.264 video through the video writer:

  • Default = Good quality, high compatibility, low file size
  • High = High quality, high compatibility, medium file size
  • Visually Lossless = Best quality, high compatibility, high file size

In today’s update, we have now enabled these quality settings within DVRConv.

To choose the quality settings for H.264, simply access the program options from the DVRConv interface and select your preferred option.

We continue to add new formats with every update and today’s update is no exception. Remember that you can always view the hundreds of formats we currently support and that we have recently added, by clicking on the Help button within DVRConv.

DVRConv Update 12801: Support for More New Formats, Format Variants and Timestamps

We’re here with another update for Amped DVRConv, one of the fastest ways to cleanly convert multiple video files.

Amped DVRConv remains one of the top go-to tools for practitioners who need to convert video quickly, cleanly and easily. It’s my first choice when I have a large amount of video files that I need playable – I simply drag and drop my files into Amped DVRConv and it does the work for me in the background, while I am free to work on other processing!

It’s also great if you are out in the field and need to convert video on the go, ready for when you return to the lab for input into Amped FIVE or to pass onto colleagues or other agencies. The great thing is, the original files are always preserved and log files created with each conversion, meaning your original video evidence is always kept secure.

We know how many different standard and proprietary video formats are out there and how frustrating it can be to come across a new format that you just can’t seem to do anything with.

For this reason, we are constantly working to add support for more formats that you send to us and in this update, we’ve done just that!
