Ultra high quality H.264 software video encoder

Expert-H264® encodes popular source formats such as AVI, TGA, MOV and BMP into the new H.264 Advanced Video Coding format. Expert-H264®uses the latest encoder standard as defined by Joint Video Team (JVT). H.264 yields the most efficient standards-based video coding to date, reducing bit-rates 3 to 4 times compared to MPEG-2 with similar quality. For an explanation of rate control click here.

Expert-H264 is an easy to use interactive Microsoft Windows application. Advanced encoding parameter options are exposed in an intuitive dialog window for setting the best quality/bit-rate tradeoff, without the need to sort through complex configuration files.

It is used by television broadcasters to enable both 4:3 and 16:9 television sets to optimally present pictures transmitted in either format. It has also been used by broadcasters to dynamically control how down-conversion equipment formats widescreen 16:9 pictures for 4:3 displays.
