Maybe you don't do enough video conversion to make copping a dedicated SpursEngine
card a good investment, but that doesn't mean you can't put the Cell
processor in your PlayStation 3
to work in between sessions of Killzone 2, (not like it's busy curing cancer
or anything.) Fixstars' CE-10 encoder doesn't exactly fit the "Cell Storage" pie in the sky promises of yesterday
, but by installing it on a PC it lets users tap into the PS3's number crunching power to achieve professional encoding quality. No word on what an "affordable prosumer price" is, but if ultra fast HD encoding is something you'd be interested in -- those 1080p vids
won't compress themselves -- stop by the Broadcast International booth at NAB next week for an early preview before the software launches in June.
