Faster Performance with Cutting-Edge Technologies
Movavi keeps pace with the latest high-tech multimedia developments so you get the best results from your hardware. Accelerate your video processing thanks to the overhauled conversion engine, the new SuperSpeed conversion mode, and the optimization for multi-core processors, Intel® HD Graphics, and NVIDIA® CUDA™.
Completely Redesigned Conversion Engine
By completely overhauling the conversion engine, we have been able to accelerate video processing speed for most supported formats, including AVI, MP4, MOV, FLV, MKV, and many others. Now your videos will be transcoded up to 5.4 times faster.
The chart shows performance improvement when converting video to MP4 using Movavi Video Converter 14 compared to Video Converter 12.

This is the latest Intel® technology used in the 4th generation of Intel® Core™ i3, i5, and i7 processors. We implemented support for it in Movavi software to ensure effective simultaneous processing of multiple files. For example, with Intel® Core™ i7 you can simultaneously process up to 8 files using each core's powers optimally.
Optimized CPU Load Management
The new conversion engine in Movavi Video Converter 14 utilizes an innovative СPU load planner to ensure the highest possible conversion speed and optimal CPU loading during batch conversions. This lets you process several files simultaneously and still use your PC normally.
Enjoy up to 1.5x faster parallel conversion when processing HD video files with H.264 codec (see performance chart below).

Intel® HD Graphics Advantage – Hardware Acceleration
Movavi brings you all the benefits of the latest Intel® innovations – our software is optimized for Intel® HD Graphics technology. By transferring a large part of the encoding to the Intel® HD Graphics chip, Movavi Video Converter lowers the load on your CPU up to 2x and ensures a significant performance boost – up to 400% – for H.264 and MPEG-2 codecs. This in turn delivers, which means up to 2-x quicker conversions for Apple iPod, iPad, iPhone, and other portable devices, up to 4x faster transcoding of HD videos, fast DVD ripping, and freeze-free work on your PC during conversion.
By leveraging Intel® HD Graphics technology, Movavi Video Converter provides seamless encoding of HD video on computers with Intel® SandyBridge, IvyBridge, and Haswell processors. High-quality HD video performance is enabled by the advanced video engine, which works with the Intel® HD Graphics technology to deliver the performance boost illustrated in the performance chart below.

How to use Intel® HD Graphics Acceleration
First, add the files you want to convert to Movavi Video Converter. Then check the preset list – if a preset supports Intel® Acceleration, it will be marked with a blue Intel HD Graphics label. If you want your files to be converted faster, just choose one of these presets, and then click Convert.
Intel® HD Graphics Acceleration is enabled by default. You can disable it in the Settings menu under Preferences as shown in the picture left if you wish.
NVIDIA® CUDA™ Advantage – Hardware Acceleration
Movavi Video Converter is optimized for NVIDIA® CUDA™, ensuring accelerated video encoding on a CUDA-enabled graphics card. Use of the NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology ensures a significant – up to fourfold – performance gain, giving you fast HD and SD video conversion.
Because Movavi Video Converter shifts video processing from your computer's CPU to NVIDIA's GPU, the load on your CPU is significantly decreased, so you can work on your PC normally during conversion.
The chart shows Movavi Video Converter's performance gain in rendering HD video with and without NVIDIA® CUDA™.
