Spb Software House today announced the release of the Smartphone version of Spb Mobile DVD - a desktop application that provides a simple way to convert DVDs and video files to mobile format optimized for watching on Windows Mobile Smartphone devices.
Spb Mobile DVD has already gained a reputation among Pocket PC users being one of the best selling multimedia programs thanks to the fastest possible conversion speed and the true real-time preview feature.

The screen of the landscape Smartphone-like Motorola Q, Samsung BlackJack/i-600 and T-Mobile Dash is great for watching videos. And with a typical 1-2 gigabyte storage card a user can take 5-10 of his favorite movies for watching in a trip. All that makes landscape Smartphones almost a perfect platform for watching videos. That is why Spb Mobile DVD is one of the first applications Spb Software House has chosen to port from Pocket PC to the Windows Mobile Smartphone platform.

Due to filesize and bit rate limitations it is impossible to directly copy a video file from a PC or laptop to a Smartphone. Video files must be converted and compressed to a smaller size, but the smaller the file size, the poorer the video quality. It's up to user to find a compromise between the file size and video quality. No computer can ever make this decision. If the size/quality settings were wrong, it may happen that the conversion video quality is unacceptable and the whole conversion procedure must be repeated. This "what-if method" can be very annoying. To avoid such problems Spb Mobile DVD offers a unique true real-time preview feature, which allows to see the result even before the conversion starts.

Spb Mobile DVD is optimized for the fastest conversion speeds on one core, hyperthreading and dual core processors. On a new PC it is possible to convert a 2 hour long DVD film in about 20 minutes! Factors which affect conversion include the CPU, DVD player, output video settings, video quality and zooming mode.

The key features of Spb Mobile DVD include:

  • Fastest Conversion Speed - Convert 2 hour DVD movies in as fast as 20 minutes. Spb Mobile DVD is specially optimized to work with one core, hyperthreading and dual core processors.
  • Real-Time Preview - See the expected result, before the conversion starts! See it in "what you see is what you get" format, as it will be seen on your mobile device. This is invaluable helping to decide end video quality versus file size.
  • Variety of Options - Convert both DVD discs and video files, choosing language and subtitles mode from a DVD menu. Convert part of the movie, changing zoom and crop modes for best viewing on a mobile device with any screen resolution. Optimize bit rate for slower Pocket PCs. With both background conversion, and WMV/XVID format support, Spb Mobile DVD is an application for everybody's needs.
  • Easy-to-Use Interface - Spb Mobile DVD is designed with an intuitive window interface, using wizards which make even a beginner use the software like a pro. With an Auto-play feature and the ability to upload converted movies to a Pocket PC automatically, the entire conversion process is now painless and fast. Plus there is no need to install any software to the mobile device.

Spb Mobile DVD is compatible with Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista. In order to perform conversion of DVD discs, a DVD drive along with up-to-date drivers and software is required.

Spb Mobile DVD is currently available in English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Czech, Polish, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese languages. A free 15-day trial, or the full version of Spb Mobile DVD for US$ 24.95 are available from Spb Software House.
