NVIDIA announced LoiLo has released Super LoiLoScope MARS, the new version of the company's video editing software can take advantage of NVIDIA CUDA-enabled GPUs to speed up the creation of films by up to 10 times.
LoiLo Inc. (CEO: Koji Sugiyama) has released Super LoiLoScope MARS , a new version of the company's easy to use video editing software that makes editing high definition (HD) movies accessible for the average consumer. By using the parallel processing power of NVIDIA(R) GeForce CUDA-enabled GPUs, Super LoiLoScope MARS creates movie files up to 10 times faster than CPU powered encoders, dramatically lowering the cost of a PC powerful enough to edit high definition content.

"Most amateur videographers will attest that playing, editing and rendering HD movies on an average personal computer was a frustrating task that took an exorbitant amount of time," said Koji Sugiyama, CEO of LoiLo Inc. "Super LoiLoScope MARS lets you edit full resolution HD movies quickly and output files for playback on various devices, and the web at incredible speed thanks to NVIDIA."

Super LoiLoScope MARS has an intuitive and easy to understand user interface that makes it ideal for aspiring movie makers of all ages to create movies, regardless of their technical knowledge. Despite its unassuming interface, Super LoiLoScope MARS is a powerful movie creation software package with a list of new features that includes:
  • GPU accelerated H.264 encoding
  • Movie output up to 10x faster with NVIDIA CUDA(TM) enabled GPUs
  • Editing & playback of AVCHD HD movies at full HD resolution (1920x1080)
  • Magnet output which enables output of multiple movies at once
  • A simple new interface for saved projects
  • Faster image editing
  • A Search button for original files of thumbnails
  • Support for 9 languages, including: Japanese, English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and simple Chinese.
  • Support for MP4, iPod, PSP, AVCHD, mp4 for Blu-ray, and Youtube HD movie formats

    The MARS version for Super LoiLoScope uses the NVIDIA CUDA(TM) computing engine found inside NVIDIA GPUs to encode, decode and playback high-quality, high definition movie files quickly.

    "The beauty of Super LoiLoScope MARS is its speed and simplicity," said Michael Steele, general manager of Visual Consumer Solutions at NVIDIA. "Its innovative interface makes advanced video editing understandable for the masses, and Loilo is yet another example of a mainstream consumer application tapping the tremendous power of GPU computing."
