Mireth Technology Corp. on Tuesday introduced the
Mac SVCD Software Bundle, which includes everything a Mac OS X user needs to burn Super Video CD (SVCD) format video on their Mac. The bundle combines Mireth’s iVCD, an MPEG encoder and converter utility and VCD or SVCD burner tool, MacVCD X, a video player that can read VCD files, and Apple’s own QuickTime MPEG-2 playback component. SVCD’s use the MPEG-2 and can store about 45 minutes of video on a standard CD-R disc. SVCDs can be played in most computers, on many DVD players and in many video game consoles as well. The bundle costs US$54.95.
