In this webinar, we’ll show you the power of Amped Authenticate to investigate an image’s provenance and authenticity, and how to reveal the presence of manipulated/concealed areas. We’ll also see how Amped FIVE can enhance images and videos to make even more information accessible to investigators.

Join Marco Fontani from Amped Software and learn why Amped solutions are all you need when it comes to video and image forensics.

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.
