EyeTV Software Update Adds One-Step Export to iPod® Video

San Francisco/Munich, December 01, 2005 – Elgato Systems today released EyeTV software 1.8.4. This free update offers a convenient, one-step export of recordings to formats that are optimized for viewing on both video-capable iPod®s and on televisions connected to iPod®s.

With EyeTV 1.8.4, EyeTV users can now export their EyeTV recordings to a video-capable iPod® using two new preset formats. One preset uses QuickTime H.264 compression, Apple's preferred format. The second preset uses MPEG-4 compression, which encodes up to five times faster than H.264 and has higher resolution output. The MPEG-4 preset is recommended as it provides the best quality for viewing either on an iPod® screen or on a TV screen. Neither preset requires QuickTime Pro.
