Elgato's Turbo.264 HD encoder takes video that you and your friends shot, iMovie projects, and material you recorded with EyeTV, and converts them, individually or in batches, to high-quality MP4 files, for use on your iPod, Apple TV, or Sony PSP, with a specialized resolution profile for each. When the files are converted, the Turbo.264 HD drops them into iTunes, ready for the next time you sync your iPod or Apple TV.

Turbo.264 HD is a hardware encoder, so it speeds up the encoding process and frees your computer's processor for other tasks while video encoding is in progress. Turbo.264 HD comes with its own video converter software, and also supports the export functions of applications such as iMovie, QuickTime Pro, Final Cut Pro and EyeTV. All this power is packed into one tiny USB 2.0 stick, so it's ready to go wherever you go!
