Using the Mideo codec you can typically reduce a 27 meg per second clip down to 1 meg per sec and maintain decent visual quality.
A 2 second video clip 53 megs in size would be reduced to under 3 megs and play back much smoother than the original.
With this kind of compression, a VJ program running on the UDMA33 system we mentioned earlier could now play 3-4 videos simultaneously, when it originally couldn't even come close to playing one uncompressed clip.
The Mideo codec is typically up to 4 times as fast as the nearest competing codec when it comes to compression times and up to 50% more CPU efficient in playback.
It also offers more configuration options than any other codec in it's class. It was designed with the VJ in mind.
The codec will work in any proper windows video program including VJ software.
It was designed with the VJ in mind. The only thing to bear in mind with Mideo is that it is not as widely used as Cinepak.
