NVIDIA MediaSqueeze™ compression technology allows you to store more of your TV program recordings on your storage media. There are two aspects of MediaSqueeze:
- NVIDIA DualTV can record your programs at a lower bit rate than competing
solutions while still providing good image quality. With a lower bit rate, the resulting
file size is smaller, so you can store more TV programs on your hard disk (or a DVD
when you archive your recordings). To use this aspect of MediaSqueeze change the
recording quality settings in MCE or the video capture application you are using. Those
applications translate the quality setting into a bit rate setting.
- NVIDIA DualTV's MediaSqueeze technology can also be used to convert your TV
program recording files from a high bit-rate to a lower bit-rate. This is useful if you are
archiving a large number of TV program recordings to a DVD and they will not all fit.
To use this feature, you need a software application that takes advantage of the
NVIDIA DualTV's MediaSqueeze technology.
