As new video formats emerge to support evolving PC, smart phone and tablet resolutions, new tools are needed to allow video content to be shared among the different devices. If you have ever tried to convert your collection of DVDs to a portable format, or tried to archive your Blu-ray video collection, then you know there are a wide range of tools available to help you with these tasks. Some of these tools are free, while others charge for converting and archiving your video.
Any product that uses the word "ultimate" in its name sets a high bar for expectations. The Total Media Converter Ultimate claims to be an all-inclusive media solution with a top rated, fast and efficient video converter. That claim is not trivial for a media conversion product, as the number of video and media formats available today is enormous.
Consumers have a lot of choice when it comes to a video conversion product. General purpose utilities such as Handbrake are free, and they are generally highly regarded by users. On the other hand, free utilities do not usually perform well, or at all when it comes to transcoding DVD and Blu-ray source material. For those tasks, a paid software utility is required, typically costing in the $50-$100 range.
The Total Media Converter Ultimate has all the functionality for general video format conversion, but also allows straightforward transcoding of DVD and Blu-ray material. There are some nice extras in the product such as GPU acceleration for fast transcoding, and a convenient link to the companion YouTube downloader product.
In this article Benchmark Reviews will look at the features and capabilities of this all in one video conversion product.
