Delivery virtually anywhere

Batch encoding in the background
Save time by automating the process of creating multiple encoded versions of your content using the new batch encoder. Use any combination of sequences and clips as sources and encode to a wide variety of video formats, including FLV and F4V, Windows Media, MPEG-2, H.264, QuickTime, and more. Maximize your productivity by continuing to work while files encode in the background.

FLV/F4V cue points with name/value pairs
Create FLV/F4V cue points with name/value pairs using markers directly in the Adobe Premiere Pro timeline. Cue points flow directly into Adobe Media Encoder, which offers a comprehensive interface for creating, checking, and adjusting cue point information. These cue points can then be used for further interactive design in Adobe Flash® CS4 Professional software.

Unified marker dialog box
Easily control marker attributes. Set Adobe Encore® CS4 chapter markers, URL web links, and FLV cue points using a single dialog box that combines all information in one place.

Optimized settings workflow for mobile device output
With Adobe Device Central CS4, get regularly updated information about mobile device capabilities to help you create high-quality video output for playback just about anywhere. Use Device Central CS4 to find the encoding preset for Adobe Media Encoder that best matches your chosen target devices.

DVD authoring
Create high-quality DVD titles using Adobe Encore CS4 software, included with Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. Create a compelling viewer experience with interactive menus and slide shows, and help ensure disc quality with integrated transcoding of your content.

Industry-leading Blu-ray Disc authoring
Maintain the pristine quality of your HD video all the way to distribution. Create high-definition Blu-ray discs with Encore CS4, working with the same interface used to create standard-definition DVDs and incorporating advanced Blu-ray features like pop-up menus and subtitles, and dual layer burning.

Delivery to multiple formats from a single project file
With one click, easily create SWF versions of your DVD and Blu-ray Disc projects for the web. Use Encore CS4 to create content compatible with the Adobe Flash Player runtime, complete with DVD interactivity and menus, without opening another application. Choose from a variety of templates, or customize the viewing experience to meet your or your clients' needs.

Video delivery for interactive viewing
Easily incorporate video into Flash CS4 Professional projects as you create immersive experiences for the web. Timeline markers are embedded as cue points when FLV files are exported from Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, streamlining the process of creating interactive and navigational triggers.

Interactive authoring to multiple formats
Reach more audiences quickly. Use Encore CS4 to author interactive titles, and then publish them to multiple delivery formats — Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and SWF for playback through Adobe Flash Player - with a single click.

Mobile device output
Optimize your video for viewing on the latest delivery platforms. Use Device Central CS4 to find the best settings for encoding as well as information about device capabilities. Use batch encoding in Adobe Media Encoder to create multiple files for multiple devices, and then use Device Central to simulate playback on those devices to check video quality. Stay up to date with frequent, downloadable device profile updates.

Web video delivery
Make your project web ready. In addition to delivering in FLV format, choose from comprehensive compression tools for Internet-friendly file formats including Real, Windows Media, and QuickTime.
