Grass Valley PROCODER-3
Format Converter Software


Grass Valley's ProCoder 3 software combines speed and flexibility into a streamlined video conversion tool. Widely acknowledged as the world's leading software transcoder, it features extensive input/output options, advanced filtering, batch processing, and an easy-to-use interface.

Whether encoding MPEG video for DVD production, producing Windows Media for streaming, or transcoding between NTSC and PAL, ProCoder software makes video format conversion quick and easy. With it you can encode a single source to multiple targets simultaneously, run multiple conversion jobs back-to-back in batch mode, or use drag-and-drop preset icons to start conversion with a single click.

ProCoder 3 software has an array of high-performance features, including a design that efficiently leverages the power of your CPU, broad codec support, local and networked use capabilities to fit your workflow, and queue management to ensure your jobs are performed in just the right order.

Using Canopus® scalable-technology architecture, ProCoder 3 software leverages the full power of your CPU, including quad-core machines. The more powerful your system, the faster the software’s conversion speed. In many cases, it can transcode files faster than real time, outperforming many costly hardware encoders.

ProCoder 3 software includes conversion options for many popular video codec  out of the box to support encoding needs ranging from mobile/handheld to highdefinition (HD) formats. These codecs include the high-quality, high-speed, Canopus DV and Canopus HQ models as well as H.264 and MPEG-2 encoders. It also supports codecs already installed on your system.

ProCoder 3 software also imports still images for animation-sequence encoding and imports external audio files for music and narration, or for multiplexing with elementary video streams for output.
