Sorenson Squeeze 9 describes a part of video production that is quickly becoming one of the most important topics - your video file. Yes we might call you videophiles from time to time, but this is different, Squeeze 9 is a video encoding software. Unlike the encoders that editing programs might come with, Squeeze 9 is dedicated to this sole purpose. The interface is streamlined, making for a cleaner aesthetic, and evoking the feel of some intermediate/consumer editing programs. What makes Sorenson Media more important for those that have great encoding needs is the response to user requests. Broadcasters asked for close captioning, and so it was done, the industry calls for more compatibility and speed, so in come HTML5 optimization, iOS compatibility and double the speed of Squeeze 8.
Expect few slow aspects about Squeeze 9, to get faster the software divides the encoding work and takes on a video like a striped RAID works with data. If you need to process high volumes of video, look to the Squeeze Server 2.0, and consider making use of the watch folders which can monitor sources like webcams. At the heart of the software are the well-seasoned recipes for specific final videos, why not try a veteran chef? So search the specs for the file you need to create and see if the right version is available, Standard - $800, Pro $1,000, or Premium $2,000. If you're updating software, upgrades on this long-running product go for $199-$700.
