[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ith the increase in number of gadgets and devices now a days which we use to share and watch our memories, photos or videos, the need of Video Converters are also increasing simultaneously because the devices are from different brands built upon different operating systems, etc. Hence we can’t watch a particular video on every other gadgets/devices since they support different file formats. Specially, when we have 4K video supported device.
Now, this brings us to choose from a wide range of Video converters now a days. There are bunch of converter tools available in the market, some are paid while some are free. But how to find out which is best? Well, some of them just cannot convert your video without damaging its video or audio quality, while some of them just not support the output format you need. There’s no compulsion that if the software is paid, it is the best. No way. There has to be technologies in the background that work on your video file, and not all are good on it.
As a tech geek, i go through many Video converters and came across the best one that not only converts your video files in over 370+ file formats or supports over 400+ devices, but also lets you convert your videos into Ultra HD 4K resolution. It is ‘MacX Video Converter Pro’.
Available for MacOS and Windows, the MacX Video Converter Pro is the fastest 4K & HD Video Processing tool with Good Balance in Quality and Size.
The software comes with a bunch of useful features offering you all your video processing needs. From converting or editing videos to making beautiful Photo slideshows, from downloading YouTube videos to extracting only music from videos, the MacX Video Converter Pro is all want. No matter if you have Apple, Android, Windows or any other devices, this is one software for all. You can convert your video to SD, HD or even Ultra HD 4K quickly and comfortably without loosing any quality.
Ultra HD 4K Video Processing:
4K is the new increasing trend today when it comes to watching videos. As we all know, every brand today is working hard to offer devices with 4K support, let it be Television, Monitors, Laptops, or even Smartphones now come with 4K output as well as 4K recording capabilities. For those who don’t know, 4K resolution is 4 times to the Ful HD resolution. While you get 1280×720 for HD videos and 1080×1920 in Full HD videos, 4K videos offer 3840×2160 resolution. It makes every element of videos more clearer and crisper.
If you are having a 4K compatible TV or Monitor or any other output device, watching HD or Full HD videos will give you blurry or pixilated output. So, you must have a 4K video to watch on these devices to enjoy it fully. But the problem is not all Camcorders or Smartphone cameras are yet compatible to record Ultra HD 4K resolution video. What most of us do is get any Video Converter Software and convert our SD/HD/FHD videos to 4K. But does this really create a 4K video for you? Answer is NO.
First of all not all converters available in the market support 4K output. And which does, though these tools will convert your normal video into 4K Ultra HD, but you will get the same or even more blurry picture. It only changes the Resolution with huge file size but compromises the video quality. It will result in crash or laggy video. While the sizes are too huge to share on YouTube, Facebook or any other social media.
MacX Video Converter Pro not only converts your normal video into actual 4K Ultra HD video at 5X speed but also maintains the video size.
Solution is pretty simple. This tool uses the built-in Intel QSV/Nvidia/AMD Hardware Acceleration tech to give you real 4K output quality at 5x faster speed than any other similar tool. It runs on thousands of GPU cores in parallel, rather than the sequential part of the workload running on the CPU. These play smooth without any crash on any of your 4K supported display. And that too at compresses video file size that keeps your storage safe for other files too.
While doing this, you can also edit, crop, trim, add subtitle, merge multiple videos into one and do lots more. Overall, if you were looking for a 4K Video Converter, i would strongly recommend MacX.
Wondering what is this Hardware Acceleration and how is it useful in Video conversion? Well, most of the video player you use now a days like VLC Player or Windows Media Player on PCs, or like mobile video players such as MX Player, etc uses hardware acceleration. You might have noticed the difference while playing. Even few highly rated Video converters such as PowerDirector, Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate, etc uses hardware acceleration to process better videos.
In layman terms, hardware acceleration increases the full potential of your hardware to process the video. Like increasing the memory, utilizing more CPU cores, replacing storage disk, etc. Unlike other tools, MacX Video Converter Pro supports multi-core CPU, hyper-threading tech and Intel Quick Sync Video or Nvidia NVENC hardware acceleration technology that helps to reserve 98% Audio / Video quality and converts your videos in Ultra HD 4K resolution at 5X faster speed compared to other those tools.
MacX’s hardware acceleration tech runs on thousands of GPU cores in parallel, rather than the sequential part of the workload running on the CPU. This reduces the CPU burden which in result consumes less overall energy and that increases your battery as well as core system’s life.
You can see the difference how MacX Video Converter Pro works with Hardware Acceleration.
