HEVC is designed to double the data compression compared to AVC/H.264.

Multi-Rate Bundle Encoding
Automatically packages files for Apple HLS, Adobe Dynamic Streaming, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, MPEG DASH, and MP4. Five times faster than encoding separately!

We___ve added VP9, the successor to VP8. VP9 reduces the bit rate by up to 50% compared to VP8.

HLS Encryption
This new HLS security feature utilizes customized root URLs in manifest files in order to serve index files and media files from different locations.

Closed Caption Insertion
Import a separate .scc file and video file. Squeeze 10 will link the two together into broadcast streams.

4K Presets
Preliminary 4K support ___ Two 4K presets have been added including H.264 and x265.

Optimized HTML5 & Multi-Screen Encoding
Makes encoding video files for multi-screen playback easy and intuitive. Users simply drag and drop a single HTML5 preset onto a source file, and Squeeze then automatically creates two output renditions of the file.The two renditions enable seamless native video playback in any browser, including Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari. No other encoding product has anything like it.

Pre/Post-Roll Stitching & Closed Captioning
Add pre- or post-roll video to any primary video. Full support for both EIA-608 or EIA-708 closed captioning in source video, and corresponding TTML output with compressed Squeeze files, for standard and high-definition digital video content.

Seamless Review & Approval
An upgraded higher performance review & approval process empowers users with even more responsive design of web pages for viewing and approving video content on any device. Plus, 5GB of free storage. No one else offers anything like it.

Streamlined User Experience & Workflow
Enjoy a cleaner, better, more aesthetically pleasing UI, advanced search functionality for items—including presets, filters,publishing options and notifications. Enhanced batch window cleanup and simplified navigation. A video preview window organized for the most simplified, intuitive task areas for viewing, editing source content and much more.

Enhanced Video Quality & Speed
Divide & Conquer multi-core encoding for MP4 and MOV provides a massive boost to single-file encoding, making it the fastest full Squeeze release yet. Enjoy enhanced quality through integration of the newly optimized MainConcept SDK 9.6 codec.

Squeeze Server Integration
Seamless integration into new Squeeze Server 2.0, Sorenson Media’s award-winning enterprise transcoding solution, to enable offloading of jobs at volume and free up work stations.

-Import Sequenced Still Images: To help support the growing number of camera and mobile devices that have the option to export video out as individual frames in the form of a sequence of image files (i.e. Time Lapse footage), Squeeze 11 provides the ability to import "Sequenced Image Files" in the form of .jpg or .tif files.

-Multi-Track Audio Support: Squeeze 11 has implemented support for .MOV source files that contain multiple audio tracks and allows you to encode those tracks when exporting to MOV or MP4 output files. The most common workflow requested with this feature is multi-language track support but can be used in other scenarios as well.

-XDCAM OP1a (MXF): Sorenson Squeeze 11 has added support for exporting MXF with an additional Operational Pattern, the OP1a operational pattern. This operational pattern may include multiple tracks of audio and video that are interleaved into a single file, creating a self contained file. OP1a files can be exported by creating an MXF preset and selecting one of the three XDCAM Format Constraints.

- Removal of Output Frame rate Restrictions: Squeeze Desktop has always been a tool that focused on being powerful, flexible, and simple to use. In Squeeze Desktop 11 we have implemented the ability for you to export our output file at a frame rate that is greater than your source frame rate. This is done by strategically duplicating frames, allowing you to meet your file requirements while maintaining the quality of your video.

- Expanded 4k & UHD Support (64 bit processing): As 4K and UHD video becomes more and more common in our everyday video workflows, we find increasing importance for 64bit processing and system memory usage. In Squeeze Desktop 11 we have expanded our 64bit support to help your system handle the increased memory needs for processing content of these new frame sizes and data rates. 64bit encoding will slow down the encode time so it should only be used when necessary if you are worried about a job's throughput, but when you are doing the heavy lifting, working with 4K and UHD content, 64bit is the only way to go.

- Updated Codecs (x.264, h.264, VP9, x.265/HEVC): At Sorenson Media we always strive to provide our customers with the latest and greatest in encoding technology, Squeeze Desktop 11 is no different. We have updated the codecs that you already know and love, to bring you faster and more efficient encoding.

- High Bit-Depth Dithering Filter: Squeeze Desktop is the tool for anybody that needs to encode video and one of the features new to Squeeze Desktop 11 is High Bit-Depth Dithering. Dithering is required when you are working with High Bit-Depth Color, such as 10-bit color, and exporting as 8bit color. Dithering will automatically smooth over the color variations and banding that occurs during this color conversion, resulting in a great looking output file. Our new Dithering Filter helps you get the job done. To add even more flexibility to your encoding choices, you will find three different dithering methods to solve your dithering needs; truncate, triangular and bayer ordered. All three of these dithering methods do a great job and work fast, the choice often comes down to personal preference for your individual job.

- Text Watermark: New to Squeeze 11 is the Text Watermark filter, giving you a simple way to quickly watermark your output content and make sure viewers know who encoded or created the file.

- Avid ISIS Support

- Source File Info Dialogue: For a while now, the Squeeze Desktop team was looking for a way to give our customers more control over their source files, in version 11 we have added the "Inspect Source Information" dialog. This new feature gives you more information on your source file and how Squeeze is reading it, what Reader is being used, Frame Size, Audio Sample Rate and number of Channels, but this feature also give you the control to change how Squeeze thinks about some aspects of your source file, Aspect Ratio, Frame Rate, and Color Space (RGB & YUV 709). Explore this new feature in Squeeze Desktop 11.
