QuickTime MPEG Export Component

PixelTool’s high quality HD MPEG encoder,HDProQT™, now Multiplexes 8 Channel PCM into SMPTE302M transport on Mac platforms. See data sheet for more details. HDProQT is a QuickTime plug-in that provides HD export capability to Final Cut Pro 7, the QuickTime Player Pro 7 or any QuickTime enabled product.

HDProQT is easy to use

Broadcast ready content can be exported directly from the time line of QuickTime enabled applications including Final Cut Pro 7.  This eliminates the need to transfer edited files to a compression program and then to a multiplexing process.  All Levels and Profiles are supported including 4:2:2 at 200mbps and 4K frame sizes.

HDProQT increases encode quality

HDProQT produces MPEG streams that are compliant with the latest HD and SD specifications including Cable Labs, ATSC, HDTV, and Blu-ray. After devoting considerable time in preparing your video content, and you do not want your effort ruined with poor quality encoding. The ultra high quality, high speed PixelTools encode engine can encode directly from the basic YUV components on your time line. This results in an MPEG that exactly reproduces the colors of your source video with a minimum of artifacts even at low bit-rates. The save and restore settings capability eliminates the error prone setting adjustments.  Cable Labs presets assure Cable Labs compliance from every encode.  The product can multiplex pre-encoded AC3, AAC, MPEG, or DTS audio files into your transport stream or can encode the audio directly from the timeline. HDProQT supports CEA-708 and CEA-608 closed captioning as defined in ATSC and SCTE and encodes bit-rates up to 200mbps; 4:2:2 video; with 8 channel SMPTE 302m audio.
