InterVideo demonstrates DVD transcoding for double layer drives The DVD transcoding software industry is not out of business, even though the double layer drives are slowly penetrating the market and increasing the capacity of a recordable DVD.
InterVideo has demonstraded an updated DVD Copy v2 version with DVD+R DL support. The new version features 25% faster encoder speed and adds a Multiple DVD Merging feature. This enables the users to squeeze multiple videos on a single disc. This is especially useful for DVD+R DL as the increased capacity can store two full length movie titles with decent video quality.
