Expression Encoder Service Pack 1 preview


James Clarke has a blog post up describing some of the new features in the forthcoming Expression Encoder 2 Service Pack 1.

It's got some great new stuff, and we're demoing it here at Streaming Media West this week.

Read the whole post - there's lots of good stuff in there. A couple of my favories are

  • A new Silverlight 2 base player using .NET. Among other things, this will enable players that display the video at 100% scale by default, improving quality and performance.
  • New A/B compare modes. Awesome stuff for high-touch encoding and codec tweaking
  • Some even more VC-1 advanced options for High Codec Nerditry.
  • The first public release of Microsoft H.264 compression technology.

Anyway, a lot of good stuff for a SP1. I'm looking forward to it.
