Sorenson Media rolls out Squeeze upgrade

Sorenson Media has released an upgrade to its popular video encoding software, Sorenson Squeeze. The 6.5 release is free to current owners of Squeeze 6 and gives users the ability to decode the AVCHD format, which is a common format in HD video cameras at the prosumer and high-end consumer market; it also allows users to publish directly to Amazon web services. Squeeze 6.5 also includes three new filters: enhanced de-interlacing, image rotation and optimized color conversion.

The de-interlacing filter works automatically to increase encoding quality and speed. Image rotation improves video capture capability in mobile devices by converting portrait orientation to landscape, while encoding speed is further increased through optimized color conversion in Sorenson Squeeze 6.5.

"This set of user benefits is continued evidence of our commitment to delivering the tools and services that our customers need," said Randon Morford, director of product management for Sorenson Media.
