Formac Electronic Inc. has
updated the software
for its Devideon external DVD-R burner to version 2.1, improving existing features along the way.
|<?php virtual(“/includes/boxad.inc”); ?>
Devideon is Formac’s own home-grown external DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW combo drive. The system connects to your Macintosh using FireWire. Unlike many FireWire-based DVD-R drives on the market, the Devideon comes bundled with its own proprietary software that enables users to convert iMovies and QuickTime files into a format that can be burned onto DVDs that can be read in regular DVD players. You can create your own DVD menu with different chapters, images and text. What’s more, the drive and software work in both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.
Improvements in Devideon 2.1 include better video and audio synchronization; YUV colorspace encoder improvements when encoding DV movies; detection of interlaced frames; new contextual menus; user-controllable maximum number of simultaneous encoding processes; and changes to the Devideon screensaver.
The 1.5MB update is available for existing Devideon users from Formac’s Web site. More general information about the Devideon can also be
