A new package that promises fast transfer of your DVD collection to your PSP has been launched by the Makayama, a company known for getting your DVD movies onto your mobile phone.
PSP Media Studio 2.0 promises 300% faster conversions from DVD to PSP and states that you should be able to get a full DVD transferred to the PSP in around 45 minutes.
The system, which supports home movies, downloaded films and TV-series, allows you to transfer media data with just two clicks, making it what Makayama believes is the fastest and easiest product available on the market.
The software installs an encoding package on a Windows XP computer, users pick any video file from their harddrive, CD or DVD and the PSP Media Studio turns it into a compressed movie file, which will play on the MPEG4 mediaplayer on the PSP off the memorystick. Subtitled and foreign language DVDs are also supported.
The software captures all content (AVI, MPEG1, DivX, XVID, VOB, ASF) on all drives (harddrive, CD, DVD, removable) and encodes it to PSP.
The company offers a free tryout version that allows users to convert 3 minutes of all content and doesn't expire.
The online download price is USD32.95 (EUR29.95). Existing users may upgrade for only $14.95.
