Producing H.264 with Episode 6 and Squeeze 6.5

Article just posted at Digital Content Producer. I got an early look at Telestream’s completely new Episode 6, with a hot new interface, and improved H.264 quality and performance. I also looked at Squeeze 6.5, which didn’t really update any H.264-related features.

The bottom line is that Episode and Squeeze are now pretty much even in H.264 encoding options, speed and quality, which is a huge boost for Episode.
