Review

If you find yourself encoding movies before burning them on CD, DVD or Blu-ray discs, then you will certainly enjoy this tool; MediaCalc provides a simple and effective way of calculating the best datarate value using specific user-defined parameters. All calculations are done in real time as you modify values and it is completely free of charge.

MediaCalc has a compact and intuitive interface, making it straightforward to use. It is divided into Calculation, Datarates, Base Units and Disc Mode values. Users are required to specify the size of the video file, its duration, audio bitrate, overhead in percentage (specific to applications like Adobe Encore, Sonic Scenarist or DVD Studio Pro); these will result in the calculation of the video datarate and by selecting one of the many media types available (Blu-ray, HD DVD, DVD, SVCD, VCD), the maximum and peak datarates will be obtained. Users may also refine the output values by converting to binary or metric units.

MediaCalc is an application designed for all users in need of datarate values prior to the encoding process.
