Author VCDs with menus - Mireth Technology releases iVCD 2.0

Mireth Technology has released version 2.0 of iVCD(TM), Macintosh OS X software that allows you to easily make Video CDs and Super Video CDs. This release adds the following features:

iVCD(TM) is a VCD authoring utility that allows you to easily make Video CDs and Super Video CDs on Mac OS X. iVCD(TM) creates Video CDs from iMovie, Quicktime or .AVI movie files. iVCD(TM) can be used to author Video CDs (MPEG-1), Super Video CDs (MPEG-2), XVCDs or XSVCDs and supports both NTSC and PAL output formats. It also supports playlists and menus.

A Video CD (VCD) is a video format that uses ordinary recordable CD media to store movies and can be used instead of a DVD or a VHS tape. VCDs provide 30 to 60 minutes of VHS or better quality playback. VCDs are a perfect solution for home movies and corporate videos because they are both convenient to play and inexpensive to produce. VCDs can be played on component DVD players, component VCD players and in any Windows or Macintosh computer with a CD drive (requires player software). VCDs can also be played anywhere in the world because they are region-code free. Because they are produced on a low cost, light-weight media, VCDs are inexpensive to produce and inexpensive to ship.

Key features include:

- Authors Video CD (VCD) or Super Video CD (SVCD), XVCD and XSVCD
