Miglia’s VideoExpress offers hardware video converter for Apple TV, iPhone, iPod

Miglia’s VideoExpress is a hardware-based video file converter enabling you to turn your unprotected DVDs and QuickTime or MPEG files into h.264, the format readable by your AppleTV, video-capable iPod, or iPhone. VideoExpress speeds up the process of converting your files, giving you a fast way to make h.264 files.

Plug VideoExpress into a USB 2.0 port of your Mac, launch the software and you’re all set to go. The wide range of presets enable you to choose exactly the format you want, letting you create h.264 videos for your AppleTV, iPhone or iPod.

Whether you’re a Final Cut, iMovie or QuickTime Pro user, the included QuickTime plug-in which lets you convert your projects into h.264 without ever leaving the application.

Key Features
• High speed video file conversion to h.264
• Convert unprotected DVD’s into the space saving h.264 format
• Turn your TV recordings and videos into iPod, iPhone, and Apple TV ready files
• Includes QuickTime Plug-in. Export straight out of iMovie, Final Cut and many more apps.

Converting your TV recordings with VideoExpress is easy. Drag and drop your video file onto the VideoExpress software application, choose a target format and press “Start.” The result will be an .mp4 file in h.264 quality that takes up to half as much space on your hard drive. This makes VideoExpress a good companion to any TV Tuner product.

The US$100 VideoExpress supports QuickTime as well as MPEG-2 recorded files, making it fully compatible with digital TV tuners. VideoExpress works in conjunction with “The Tube” software, which powers several Miglia TV tuners.

Of course, apart from accelerating the conversion process, VideoExpress also takes much of the load off your Mac’s processor, enabling you to keep working on your other projects.

  1. Oh, dammit, now I feel dumb. Well, I use them to convert my videos and DVDs. Thought it was the same kind of thing. Oh well, at least I was first!!! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

  2. I thought I was being clever, just popping in a DVD and, you know, playing it. I didn’t realise I spend time and computer cycle converting it to a new format, and then storing it on my computer, which is rapidly filling up with movies, by the way, burt that’s OK, I’ll just buy more storage. Anyhoo, now I can play the movie using AppleTV, which rocks!!! Too bad the quality isn’t that great, but it’s not the point, is it? Now I look down on those who simply load a DVD into a DVD player. Losers–you don’t know what you’re missing.

  3. Not all that useful if it can’t convert protected DVD’s. I don’t see that much of a market for converting unprotected content. Handbrake works great, does protected DVD’s and is free!

  4. @spitting….

    some of us have to have those other formats besides DVD for editing, or putting on our ipods for the kids to watch on those long car trips, etc, etc, etc…

    and anything that speeds that process up is a good thing.

    not to mention that if your AppleTV picture looks bad you should try looking at your wiring.

    troll elsewhere.

    shmuck.

  5. This product is a hardware encoder-it takes the conversion away from the cpu.
    That is the point-supposedly through the hardware encoder it speeds up H.264 conversion, which takes forever through handbrake, mpeg streamclip, etc.
