St. Louis, MO, December 5th, 2001 – HEURIS, makers of the most widely used
professional MPEG encoder, MPEG Power Professional(TM), today announced they

are shipping version 2.5 of MPEG Power Professional. This software upgrade is
up to 50 percent faster than the 2.0 version, provides higher resolution
improved handling of titles and improved vector matching resulting in improved
handling of high speed video and panoramic pans. A host of other new
features help make MPEG Power Professional 2.5 the most comprehensive and
fully featured MPEG encoding software package available.

MPEG Power Professional 2.5 runs significantly faster, allowing users to
encode their projects in a fraction of the time previously required. But
this increase in speed does not come at the expense of image quality. In
fact, MPEG Power Professional 2.5 includes features that offer overall
image quality enhancements and new image processing capabilities. Users no
longer have to make the choice between quality and speed – both can be
achieved using MPEG Power Professional.

MPEG Power Professional 2.5 also provides better DV support on Macintosh,
directly supports DirectX on PCs, includes AC-3 muxing abilities in DVD
version as well as a more efficient transport multiplexer. In addition, the
new MPEG Power Professional is shipping without a security key or dongle.

“Once again, HEURIS has developed the most powerful and fully featured MPEG
encoding software package on the market,” says Brian Quandt, President of

quality encoding at faster speeds than ever before, but also many advanced

firmly behind our software products with some of the best technical support
teams in the industry.”
