Miraizon Releases Cinematize 3
- The Next Generation DVD Clip Extractor and Converter

Sunnyvale, California - May 12, 2011 - Miraizon®, a Silicon Valley digital media software company, announced today the immediate availability of its new product, Cinematize® 3 for Macintosh, a DVD clip extractor and converter. Cinematize 3 is an introductory product that includes everything necessary to start DVD extraction and conversion projects. It allows users to extract audio and video clips off of DVDs and convert them into many popular formats. Those include QuickTime, iMovie, Final Cut, iDVD, DVD Studio Pro, Keynote, PowerPoint, iTunes, iPods, iPhones, and iPads as well as formats suitable for web sites such as YouTube. Cinematize 3 is a subset of Cinematize 3 Pro, released earlier this year, but offers the same enhanced high-quality output and accelerated extraction speed as in Cinematize 3 Pro.

Cinematize 3 users will enjoy a variety of new features that make the clip selection process a whole lot easier. With background reading of DVD data, movies load up faster in Cinematize 3. With the larger resizable application window and new audio preview functionality, selecting precise Start and End points for a clip becomes a piece of cake. Time codes now display as either Chapter relative or Title relative times, and a new total clip duration feature shows the continuously updated time length of the selected segment.

Cinematize 3 also allows users to effortlessly do much more with their DVDs. Users can decode MPEG and DTS audio and directly output to iPhone, iPad, and 3GP Phone devices. They can also output in H.264 format with automatic configuration. Extracted QuickTime movies now include chapter markers for easy navigation during playback. Selecting just the right output format is now painless with the new Output Type categories. Users can come up to speed quickly with all these new features by taking advantage of the new context-sensitive online help.

"We are very excited about the release of Cinematize 3. It is a highly affordable software package that offers professional quality results. Cinematize 3 is a nice subset of Cinematize 3 Pro that includes all the necessary features to start extracting from DVDs. Users will immediately benefit from the new improved user interface, enhanced output quality, and accelerated extraction speed of Cinematize 3. We are confident that customers will see it as a strong upgrade to an already solid product," says Miraizon founder and CEO, David Salamon.
