Nero will soon support GPU-accelerated video encoding in its Nero Move it software.

During CeBIT 2009 this week, Nero announced that it will be providing a free update for users of its Nero Move it software that will add support for Nvidia's CUDA architecture. The addition of Nvidia CUDA technology will give systems that are equipped with a modern Nvidia GPU a massive boost in the speed of which the software performs video encoding.

"Nero Move it empowers users to take control of their video, music, and photo libraries. By utilizing Nvidia CUDA technology, and the subsequent accelerated video encoding time, we have made it even easier and faster for consumers to freely move their content between their mobile devices," said Charly Lippoth, CTO of Nero.

According to Nero, a task such as transcoding a high-definition video to an iPod compatible format will go from taking hours, down to taking just minutes. Better yet, Nero states that there should be an even greater time savings seen when high-definition content is created using the H.264 video compression format standard. With a growing number of digicams now supporting HD video recording, often in crazy non-standard formats, being able to quickly convert such HD video clips to a useful standard format would be great.

Unfortunately, although Nero was previewing the latest version of Nero Move it at CeBIT 2009, the update that will enable Nvidia CUDA support will not be released until April 2009. Furthermore, it does not seem like computer systems equipped with just an ATI- or Intel-based graphics solution will be benefiting from this update. Older Nvidia graphics solutions that do not support Nvidia CUDA technology seem to also be out of luck with this update and users with entry-level Nvidia graphics solution may not see the same performance gains as systems with faster Nvidia GPUs.

The Nero Move it software supports a wide range of video, music and photos formats, as well as a long list of mobile media devices and online communities. The software allows users to import, organize, convert, view and export digital media of virtually all format types and provides free updates when a new format becomes available. The software is currently available online for as low as $29.99, although a 15-day trial is available for free.

Interesting, interesting.
But I have come to hate Nero, there's just too much bloatware.
Not to mention it's overpriced.

Nero uses the MainConcept encoder... so don't expect much :\\

Anyone that uses Nero for video encoding really shouldnt since its quality is terrible. The only Nero program that would even use is Nero Recode 7 (the new versions I dont like as much) for H.264 encoding.

They use the MainConcept encoder SDK for all their stuff. DivX 7 is based on it too.

This is more than likely just going to be another crappy GPU implementation, like Badaboom. Not only does Badaboom look horrible at 5Mbps/720p, it can't even do so with consistency so you have moving blocks all over the place.

^ watch the Badaboom video and cringe in horror. If you don't know what to look for, look at the background...

Avivo video converter.

Anyway, I don't like Nero. I use ConvertxtoDVD in it's place.

damn straight. love that program. i just wish it would use 100% of all 4 cores, but even at 50% usage, i just encoded the 4th season of the TV series "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" in around 20 mins.

I use Nero Essentials to burn discs, but that's it. And that's only because it came with my drive, I suppose.

Converting HD video to iPod format from hours to minutes, eh? What if I can do that already? Using Adobe Premiere Elements, I'm able to encode a one-hour movie of 1080i source material, all edited with transitions and whatnot, into a DVD in, oh, 45 minutes or so. If Premiere was CUDA enabled, would this be cut in half or more?

If you learned how to use x264 directly you could use 100%

It's like a horrific, colorized, blur.
