KLite debuts JPDMovie
RGB Light and Kandalu Software have collaborated to launch KLite, a new player and compressor title for Macs. The software allows video conversion to the new JPDMovie (JPDM) codec, said to save up to 30 percent in terms of space compared to H264. The software supports three photo formats, lossless compression via CPD and GPD, and a lossy JPD format, all with improved compression sizes compared to competing formats such as JPG and PNG.
The software is available in beta form now, and should ship in a final release April 15th. A professional version is promised with audio support, plug-ins for Final Cut and Photoshop, and compatibility with the iPhone and iPod touch through smart applications. KLite works with Mac OS X 10.4.9 and higher, but has not yet been assigned pricing.
