Default Heard of New compression? 4x smaller than DIVX

!I come in peace"!

Has anyone heard the new technology that compresses ANY video 4x smaller than DIVX???? They say it is easier to transmit over the web.

Is DIVX DOOMED??

nope, we hope not. We all love DIVX, don't we?

I saw it on the news on the web, just thought u nice people may wish to be informed.

Thanks

It almost seems impossible to compress DIVX movies any further then what we can already do. That is amazing if it is true. Did they mention the name of the Codec? I would be interested in trying it out to see what type of results it yeilds. If you can post a link to where you found the information at, please do.

DivX is a great compression technology, though it is an obviously lossy format.

It is true that there is a new compression technology which is said to be up to four times more effective than conventional technology such as DivX. It is however a hardware compression which needs specialized chips and it is primarily intended for digital broadcasting.

A while back On2 presented the VP5 video standard, which is supposedly free and open source. It is also, claimed that the codec delivers dvd quality video, and great compression. Recently, Pulsenet claims to be bringing a new codec that will offer higher quality video.

Both VP5 and the upcoming Pulsenet codec, claim that they offer dvd quality and high compression. Whether or not they are correct, is difficult to verify. I haven't been able to find the VP5 codec anywhere. The Pulsenet isn't out yet. Pulsenet, relies also on specialized hardware.

AS far as we r concerened, DIVX rules.

if there is a codec which compresses to DVD quality and high compression, I would use it.

U cannot say u cna get DVD quality if the original source is not good! u cannot make sh*t into gold (I tried, nearly succedded but not quite!)

What does "DVD quality" mean? The DVD is bound to the MPEG2 standard which is more than ten years old and can't really catch up with current compression technologies such as MPEG4 or DivX.

I regret to say that the DVD was already obsoloeted just at the time it was established on the market. It's the best you can get, though, but it fails to meet the demands of high definition video systems, such as HDTV.

NTSC (or PAL resp.) is good for medium-sized TV-sets but it looks really awful on a video projector. That's far from my understanding of "home cinema".

The only thing I really love about the DVD - as opposed to VHS - is that it features digital sound and anamorphic widescreen.

The MPEG 2 format, the basis of the dvd is not yet "obsolete" it has many advantages, and is a vast improvement over VHS or S-VHS. MPEG-4 has not yet been perfected, and there is great chances for improvement, it is possible however that MPEG 4 may overtake the current dvd format.
