Badaboom Media Converter v1.1 Adds Features and Performance
I'm sure you're hearing the current buzz about AMD AVIVO Media Converter, so I just wanted to make sure you were in the loop about our upcoming release of Badaboom as version 1.1 is due out next week. The team developing Badaboom has added features and increased input compatibility, users should find this a savvy new version worth the minimal cost (or none at all for those who purchased Badaboom 1.0). To see a list of all the new features be sure to head to the forums for the full press release, but I listed one new feature as a teaser below.
Multi-GPU capability: Effectively doubles the transcode time of Badaboom 1.0 by enabling two Badaboom applications to run on two separate videos simultaneously. For computers with multiple NVIDIA GPUs in a system, users can launch one Badaboom for each GPU in the system and transcode multiple videos at the same time. For example, with the Badaboom 1.1 version of this feature, two NVIDIA GPUs can transcode two movies in the time it would take Badaboom 1.0 to transcode one. Each NVIDIA GPU works on a different video to get the work done twice as fast.
