Blaze DVD 5 Pro
Blaze DVD 5 Pro is distributed in Australia
by Manaccom and offers a one-stop shop for lovers of movies and music
which offers one of the best DVD and video playback facilities on the PC with
exceptional video and audio quality.
The installation of Blaze DVD 5 Pro was a breeze and it simply
auto installed once the CD was detected in our computer and a few minutes
later, we were greeted to an interface that was reminiscent of Power
DVD. The interface is set out like a car CD player with a circular
control panel for skipping tracks, pausing or stopping the movie or
music file you are listening to. At the bottom of the interface are a
variety of icons for eject, open file and settings with an LCD display
displaying the length of the file and a timeline bar.
The most impressive feature of Blaze DVD Pro 5 is the exceptional video
and sound quality that through its algorithms allows for crystal clear
video that eliminates ghosting and feathering. Another feature of Blaze
is the ability to use digital zoom which does not look as pixelated as
some other programs on the market.
Benefits of BlazeDVD 5 Pro:
Straight-forward installation and easy-to-use layout.
Supports a number of different media and file types.
Dual channel surround sound lets you enjoy home theatre style
audio effects with your Dolby headphones (Headphones not included).
Next-generation technology with High Definition Video and WMV-HD
provides high quality video payback.
Remove screen burrs and dithering with optimising functions for
better video quality.
View subtitles for multi-language support.
Save disc space by using the built-in compression feature.
For lovers of sound, Blaze DVD Pro 5 supports all the latest PC sound
cards and a variety of high quality audio playback which even includes
Dolby Pro Logic II for dual channel surround sound. Even on our standard
Creative 5.1 speakers, the quality of the sound was crystal clear. There
are also options for Classical, Club, Pop, Rock and a variety of other
musical genres to ensure that the users gets the full experience.
Blaze DVD Pro 5 also featured an Intelligent Playback system which
allows you to watch two different movies simultaneously with PIP. Some
programs on the market distort certain aspect ratios on monitors but
fortunately for Blaze, it features Smart STretch technology which allows
you to view movies in a 16:9 aspect ratio without any distortion
Lastly, Blaze DVD Pro 5 features a built-in Parental Control, 15 minute
max recording of movies in MPEG-2 video format and unlimited recording
to an MP3 audio file. The program is also zone-free so no matter what
region your DVD is from, you'll can rest assured that it can be watched
in this software package. Great stuff!
