A new partner for Declic Video FX

Contrary to what it sounds like, UV is not a site dedicated to tanning booths.

UV (Unité-Vidéo) is a french web site created about six years ago in order to gather together the best parts of the french-speaking video world. Webmasters of several old sites, like Media-Video, DVD Creation, DVD Home, EclipseDVD, and others, have decided to combine their efforts to create what is still one of the most popular sites for french-speaking video users. Since then, Unité-Vidéo has grown up and now welcomes several french-speaking software developers.

Beyond the homepage, you will find a well-rounded forum where you can learn about video encoding, new HD video formats, video editing and filtering with Avisynth, ... and many other subjects.

So, if you're just trying to find a solution to split an AVi file, or if you're wondering if CABAC(Context-Adaptive Binary Arithmetic Coding) in Mpeg4-AVC (H.264) allows a compression gain bigger than 15 % or not, UV is your man.

Editor's note: this forum and web site has nothing in common with existing web sites like Video Friends Forum. It deals with different fields and you'll certainly agree with that by visiting it or just reading this news.
