Transcodes a wide range of video formats to Apple-supported formats.

iVI is mainly intended for transcoding video. As a target, the tool supports mostly HEVC/h265 and h264. The purpose of this app is to make any video playable on the desired Apple device, such as iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac. It has the advantage of allowing a wide range of input formats, including MP4, MPG, MOV, AVI, MKV, WMV, FLV, 3GP, AVCHD, MOD, MTS, M2TS, TOD and VOB. Likewise, it is good at processing resolutions up to 4K.

Unluckily, the tool’s interface is certainly not as easy-to-use as those of other similar applications. However, it does facilitate your work by supporting drag-and-drop operations. Likewise, you can transcode batches of videos in a single operation.

One of the best advantages of this product is that it helps to automate various processes. This includes automatic file naming based on user-defined rules. Likewise, it can download artwork and information about movies and TV series. Moreover, it may come in handy when you need to find subtitles for a given film or episode. What is more, the application monitors folders so that any movie you copy to them is automatically converted and imported into iTunes.

In addition, iVI supports a few simple editing operations. Thus, it can be used to extract a segment from a movie and merge multiple files. Similarly, the application allows you to crop and rotate the video image. In terms of sound, it lets you choose the desired language when the source file comes with multiple tracks. What is more, you can use it to reduce noise as well.

All in all, iVI is recommended because of its multiple features, which are more than those described here. Unlike other batch video converters, it lets you use individual conversion profiles. Luckily, it can process video quite fast and without quality losses. In this respect, you may notice that the conversion speed depends on the source and target formats. Finally, you should not miss this opportunity to try this product and see if it works for you.
