Leadtek Research Inc., one of the world's leading makers of multimedia products, today launched the English version of its latest and the most-compact-ever high performance transcoding card - the WinFast ® PxVC1100.

The latter integrates four Synergistic Processing Element (SPE) cores based on the "Cell Broadband EngineTM” intelligence power protection, a one-slot adaptive cooling FAN sink and PCI-Express Low profile form factor.

Leadtek is the main card-maker partner of the Toshiba ® SpursEngineTM business and keeps to work together with other software partners in building a number of exciting applications.

A 75% transcoding time saving that frees up to 80% of your CPU loading

Super Resolution: upgrade your SD video to HD -like Blu-ray quality

Bundled with TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress, Multi-Format Video Encoding Software.

The ultimate combination of PxVC1100 and TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress (with TMPGEnc Movie Plug-in SpursEngineTM) allows users to take control of the encoder circuits in the SpursEngineTMto experience incredible output processing speeds even when the CPU demands tasks such as high-definition video processing.

And everything the SpursEngineTMcannot do is performed by TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress. These tasks include audio encoding or video and audio multiplexing.

Users with an NVIDIA ® CUDATMgraphics card can see a total speed increase of up to 588%. See product webpage for benchmark details.

In a mere two months since its Japan release, stocks of WinFast ® PxVC1100 have completely sold out with rapturous comments from Japanese media and consumers on its “overall performance “ and “best ever user experience.”

Intent on making a similar market impact in Taiwan, Leadtek is offering both the advanced Software Development Kit (SDK) and two eye catching sales packages that should meet the demands of a wide cross section of customers. The SDK enables users to create their own customized software with lots of useful bundled programs.
