Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 with Service Pack 2 (SP2) is now available for download through the Microsoft Download Center.
"Expression Encoder is an advanced audio/video-encoding and live-broadcasting application especially suited for generating content that takes full advantage of the rich graphic and interactive capability of Microsoft Silverlight playback scenarios," stated Microsoft.
"You can also generate Windows Media video and audio files that are optimized for other web playback scenarios, or appropriate for playback on portable devices."
"Expression Encoder 4 SP2 provides support for Sandy Bridge graphics processors (Expression Encoder Pro with SP2 only), SRS audio, and adds the ability to manage publishing points, among other features, as well as bug fixes and stability enhancements. Also in this version, Expression Encoder Screen Capture no longer limits screen capture durations," the software compnay added.
The Redmond company notes, "This free version of Expression Encoder 4 does not include support for live IIS Smooth Streaming and H.264 encoding. Some SP2 features, including GPU encoding and live template support, are also only available in Expression Encoder 4 Pro."
