time stamp avchd, hdv & dv, plus metadata tools

Now version 5

Now supports
Sony HDD/DVD



 

DVMP Pro is a specialised AVCHD, HDV & DV media player, a set of professional tools, and a DV Capture module.

Plays video files captured from an AVCHD, HDV or DV camcorder and displays the time stamp that was stored in the hidden metadata area of the file when the recording was originally shot. It also displays the timecode, user bits, and exposure settings such as iris/aperture, shutter speed, gain, image stabilizer and white balance, and GPS coordinates for supported camcorders - all displayed with frame accuracy as you play or frame-step through your AVCHD, HDV or DV file. It also works for standard definition MOD files, and files copied from many Sony HDD and DVD camcorders.

The burn-in tool lets you time stamp AVCHD, HDV and DV video. This stamps the recording date and time (also known as datacode or datecode) into the visible area of each frame. You choose the appearance of the time stamp. You can set the format, font, size, position and language of the time stamp. You can also choose to burn-in timecode, user-bits, iris, shutter speed, etc. Other tools include a powerful file splitter which splits your DV AVI file into scenes using a range of triggers, and a DV metadata editor which can modify timecode, DV time stamp and other metadata.

System Requirements

Playing and processing high definition AVCHD files requires a lot more more processing power than HDV or DV files. Therefore there are 3 levels of system requirement.

For AVCHD playback:

  • 3GHz, Quad Core
  • 4GB RAM
  • Windows 7, Windows 8, Vista or XP
  • DirectX 9

A lower spec can be used for processing AVCHD files - the operation will just take longer to complete.

A suitable video and audio decoder (codec) is required on your PC. See Requirements for Playing AVCHD files for more info.

For HDV, Sony HDD/DVD and MOD playback and processing:

  • Core 2 Duo, 2GHz, or better.
  • 2GB RAM
  • Windows 7, Windows 8, Vista or XP
  • DirectX 9

A suitable MPEG-2 video decoder (codec) is required on your PC. See  Requirements for Playing HDV files  and Requirements for Playing MPEG-2 PS files for more info.

For DV playback and processing:

  • Intel Pentium 4 / AMD Athlon 1.2GHz, or better.
  • 256MB RAM
  • Windows 7, Windows 8, Vista or XP
  • DirectX 9

Try the DEMO version to check if your PC has the necessary decoders, and to check its performance with your own video files before buying.

Download our 14 day demo version - this has almost all of the functionality of the full version, but all output files are watermarked.

DVMP Pro does not install any codecs or DLLs on your system and does not change any of your system settings - it couldn't be simpler or safer!
