Supports audio, video
Miraizon has released Reframe, an app for converting audio and video between standards. Users can for instance convert video from PAL to NTSC, SD to HD, and film to video. Advanced settings make it possible to alter video properties such as frame rate or size, as well as audio details like sampling rate. Other settings help fine-tune video conversion through scaling, resampling, and tweaks to the precision and dynamic range of decoding.
Users can import multiple audio and video clips via batch processing, and save input lists for later use. All clips can be converted into easily editable formats, or else exported for use in particular purposes like YouTube or iPhones and iPods. Under a QuickTime options window, users can choose to save either a reference or self-contained movie, and whether or not to display aspect ratio information.
Reframe supports a range of video formats including MPEG, AVI, or any other compatible with QuickTime; audio support includes AIFF, WAV and Dolby Digital AC-3. The app requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and is priced at $130.
