Edit in DV and master in MPEG2
The Amber MPEG2 archiving and mastering kit provides the DV videographer a high quality, efficient way of storing DV productions for mastering and distribution. By using I, B, and P frames (MP@ML) the producer can be assured of high quality at a low data rate. Quality levels can be set ranging from 1Mb/s to 15Mb/s. With variable and constant bit rate options the user can adjust bandwidth depending on the complexity in the video. Stereo audio can also be captured into Layer II formats up to 48khz at 16 bits.

Competetive advantage
The quality of video capture is significantly better with true IBP support (others use I-frame or IP-frame only). As with all Canopus products, Amber is known for its stability. Amber is compatible with DVRex and DVRaptor editing systems, and can display a video window while capturing and playing MPEG2 files.

Note:The free DVD-RAM offer has since ended.
