Elemental Technologies announced they will release Badaboom Media Converter 1.1 by mid-December, the free update of this NVIDIA CUDA powered video transcoder will offer more flexibility, new features and multi-GPU support for higher performance.
Support for additional input file formats and containers: DivX, Xvid, MpegPEG-1, VC-1, AAC Audio, AVI, MKV, among others. The file formats supported by Badaboom 1.0 will still be supported as well.
New output profiles: YouTube, Blackberry Bold and Microsoft Zune have been added. User-customizable outputs are available as well.
H.264 Main profile output: Provides even higher quality output than version 1.0, especially useful when outputting at resolutions higher than 480p. Baseline profile is still supported.
1920x1080 (1080p) output: The largest standard ATSC video resolution now available is an output option, which provides great video quality when combined with Main profile.
Multi-GPU capability: Effectively doubles the transcode performance of Badaboom 1.0, cutting transcoding time in half as the user can simultaneously run two separate videos on two Badaboom applicationsCut transcoding time in half by running . For computers with NVIDIA SLI technology for running multiple NVIDIA GPUs in a system, users can lLaunch one Badaboom for each NVIDIA GPUs in the system and transcode multiple videos at the same time. For example, Wwith the Badaboom 1.1 version of this feature, two NVIDIA GPUs can transcode two movies in the time it would take Badaboom™ 1.0 to transcode one. Each NVIDIA GPU works on a different video to get the work done twice as fast.
