CEBIT 2009, HANOVER, GERMANY — MARCH 3, 2009 — Nero, creators of liquid media technology, today previewed the latest version of Nero Move it, which now features support for the NVIDIA® CUDA™ architecture, at the CeBIT trade fair. Available as a free update to current Nero Move it customers in April, this new version includes impressive accelerated video encoding times and a decrease in CPU usage to enable users to enjoy even faster file transfer time.

Even more time can be saved when creating full HD video content in the H.264 video compression standard.

"Nero Move it is designed to allow consumers to effortlessly convert and share digital media content among a variety of popular entertainment devices. Shifting specific video processing tasks from the CPU to the GPU enables consumers to complete their content transfers in a fraction of the time," said Michael Steele, general manager of visual consumer solutions, NVIDIA. "People now expect to interact with technology in a more natural and visually appealing way. Whether it's with photos, video, or 3D graphics, the GPU is the perfect processor to enable the best experience."

The standards-based Nero Move it technology allows even non-technical consumers to quickly and easily convert music, videos, and photos from one file format to another for use across a broad range of supported portable devices. Nero Move it is designed to move content between the PC, mobile phones and smartphones including the Apple® iPhone™ 3G, T-Mobile G1™, iPod® devices, digital cameras, camcorders, PlayStation® Portable devices, and social networking web sites.

"Nero Move it empowers users to take control of their video, music, and photo libraries. By utilizing NVIDIA CUDA technology, and the subsequent accelerated video encoding time, we have made it even easier and faster for consumers to freely move their content between their mobile devices," said Charly Lippoth, chief technology officer, Nero AG. "By leveraging our core technology expertise and platform neutral approach, Nero Move it users can transfer their content to hundreds of compatible devices and take their multimedia content with them wherever they go."
