Real-time hardware MPEG 2 encoding

Record high quality video to your hard drive without filling it up! Using MPEG-2, recording two hours of video can take up about 4,700MB, i.e. 1 DVD or 7 CDs. But with MPEG-4, you can record that same amount of video with just 700MB, or one CD! No one else but LifeView gives you true hardware MPEG-4 encoding!
