Elgato intros Turbo.264 HD Software Edition for Mac


Elgato has released Turbo.264 HD Software Edition for Mac. Described by the company as a software version of its Turbo.264 HD encoder hardware, the Software Edition allows users to instantly edit HD camcorder clips without the need to prior conversion, offers support for a wide range of video formats, and fast file conversion, following Apple’s specifications for H.264 videos and using custom video de-interlacing, with presets for the iPod, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. Elgato’s new Turbo.264 HD Software Edition requires a Mac with an Intel Core processor, at least 512MB of RAM, Quicktime 7.6 or later, and Mac OS X 10.5.6 or later, and sells for $50.

Well this is gonna be useless.  What makes the Turbo.264 so good is that there’s an H.264 encoder chip in it, aka, hardware.  Doing it via software is just like if you transcode from MPEG Streamclip or Quicktime itself; it’ll bog down your CPU just the same.  I bet it’ll be a waste of 50 bucks to anyone who buys it.
