Janet Swift, in PR over at Telestream, sent me a note this morning reminding me that last week, after two years of work, Telestream released the Windows version of Episode.
Janet wrote: “Episode now supports cross-platform environments, PC and Mac. Also Episode desktop now includes watch folders for both Mac and PC users – in addition to all its other great attributes: virtually any format in & out, extensive filters and fine-tuning, plus it’s fast and easy to use.”
“Episode products provide a fast, flexible and future-proof solution for virtually any SD or HD compression need. Episode desktop products include extensive fine-tuning compression capabilities, batch encoding and many presets which enable users to quickly create extremely high-quality output files. Cross-platform support in Episode and Episode Pro 5.1 means that users and organizations no longer need to learn and support multiple encoding tools for different purposes. The addition of watch folders in version 5.1 saves time and effort by enabling users to simply drop finished projects into folders for automatic encoding.”
Episode is a high-quality, professional-grade compression product. If all you need is QuickTime movies, Apple’s Compressor may well meet your needs. But, if you need Window Media, Flash, or need to create multiple versions of the same media, Episode is definitely worth checking out.
