Digigami ships MegaPEG.X 2

Digigami today announced it is now shipping , a new MPEG VBR (variable bitrate) encoder for Macintosh. The company claims that the quality, file size and bitrate output from this new compression tool rivals or "exceeds competing formats such as WindowsMedia, Flash and Real (even MPEG-4), while continuing to support the universally recognized international standard known as ISO-11172 or simply 'MPEG-1'". Digigami says that the new product is capable of producing a high quality 320x240x24 fps movie with stereo audio (ISO 11172-3 Layer 2, 64kbps) at a combined average bitrate as low as 200 kbps (0.2 Mbs). Digigami MegaPEG.X Pro 2.0 is available now at the introductory price of $240.

"With Digigami MegaPEG.X, common video content can be compressed to MPEG-1 VBR at 320x240x24fps at well under 500 kbps (0.5 megabits/sec), which is very competitive with the current offerings from Microsoft, Real and even MPEG-4 for internet video delivery. And once we get within even 250 kbps of any other format, the irrevocable and undeniable advantages of the MPEG-1 international standard simply tip the scales to our advantage." said Gen Kiyooka, developer of both MegaPEG.X and early streaming-video plug-in CineWeb (1996), and CTO of Digigami, Inc.
