I believe CinemaCraft Xtream is used for high end DVD Compression, but I’m pretty sure it’s expensive. They have a software-only version, CinemaCraft SP3, which apparently uses the same encoding engine, but in reality software-only will never be as good as dedicated hardware.
In my opinion, if you take the time to understand MPEG-2 compression, encoders like Compressor, Media Encoder, etc. will deliver some nice results.
