    Are you looking for software for a Mac or PC?

    If PC, High End recommends TMPGEnc 4.0 Xpress. The software is about $100 and is very well suited to encode clips for the DL.2/Axon. Information about how to prepare custom content for the servers can be found on our support page here:

    http://www.highend.com/support/digital_lighting/CreatingCustomContent.asp

    Also, a tutorial for using TMPGEnc 4.0 Xpress can be found here:

    For Mac computers, we recommend using Episode, however the program is $395.

    I hope this helps, please let me know if you have further questions.

    Kind regards,

    you could hire someone to do it. Something like that can go for $50 to $150 an hour. That way you don't have to pay for the software and you can tap the knowledge of those who know codecs.

    I have had very good results with the TMPEG Xpress 4.0 software....and as Matt has stated only costs about $100 bucks for a full license, and not hard to figure out.

    I just encoded about 6 hours worth of custom content a week or two ago using it with not a single problem.:)
