InstantVideo To-Go – Hardware accelerator for video conversion


ADS presents the InstantVideo To-Go which is probably the “first hardware-based H.264 conversion device for PCs”. It is an accelerator which allow you to convert any video into formatst specifically for playback on an iPod or PSP five time faster than normal.

So what this means is you can take a DVD’s worth of video and crunch it down for 320×240 playback on your iPod or PSP in 20 minutes, something that can take five hours to do with software encoding. And this baby can do that with a slew of media formats, too, including MP4, MP3, AVI, WMV, MOV, RM, JPG, and TIFF.
