CyberLink MediaEspresso 6.5
CyberLink MediaEspresso 6.5 blazingly fast media universal converter that can transcode your videos, photos and music files and out put them to a huge range of portable devices including mobile phones, portable media players and even game consoles. With technologies like Smart Detect, Direct Sync and CyberLink’s TrueTheater video enhancements, you can not only forget about complicated format, resolution and output settings, but your converted file will come out the other side looking better than when it went in! MediaEspresso 6.5 can be used to output your slideshows and videos to mobile devices like an iPhone, iPod, PSP or Zune. Pre-set profiles eliminate the need for any complex settings and you can just drag-and-drop the video files you want to convert straight into the application.
We downloaded a clip that was encoded at 24 frames per second (fps) at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p). We then used MediaEspresso 6.5 to convert this clip to work on our iPhone. If you have this software and want to try it out yourself you can download the Coral Reef Adventure (IMAX) 1080p clip that we used from this site.
Benchmark Results:The Intel Core i3-2015 processor did really well with no acceleration, but when it was fully enabled Cyberlink MediaEspresso 6.5 took advantage of Intel Quick Sync Video and finished the benchmark in record time. This program should be able to use AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) technology, but if it really is it appears to be doing so when the quality is set to faster and the hardware acceleration is turned off? We are scratching our heads a bit on this one, but we triple checked and these are the results!
