Sorenson Media announced Tuesday a new 4.1 version of
Sorenson Squeeze, its video encoding and compression software for digital video professionals. The new version adds AAC Plus Audio, which provides the same audio fidelity as “regular” AAC while using half the file size.
The new release as an optional task dialog that allows users to send video to multiple applications from a single Mac, over a network, to an FTP site, or using VitalStream, an on-demand video streaming service. Sorenson also announced that users of Sorenson Squeeze 4.1 can buy Telestream Flip4Mac, a plug-in that allows video encoding in Windows Media 9 on the Mac.
Sorenson Squeeze 4.1 is expected to be released by the end of the first calendar quarter of 2005, and will be a free upgrade for registered users of Sorenson Squeeze 4.0. The Windows Media plug-in will cost $179.
