Many apps all in one.
DV Kitchen combines so many functions in one environment it makes your content publishing workflow is almost effortless.
When you have DV Kitchen, any movie or picture on your hard drive, in any format, is just a few clicks and a few seconds away from being easily published just the way you want.
Spectacular quality video encoding.
DV Kitchen encodes video to over dozens of formats, including Flash FLV and Windows Media Video, but most exciting, of course, is the best and most important codec for web video, video podcasts and playback devices: H.264, in sizes from tiny cell phone screens through iPod, iPhone and AppleTV, to full 1920×1080 HD.
DV Kitchen easily encodes better-looking video than what you’re using now thanks to the stunning quality of the x264 codec, SampleLab™, the Bitrate Budget Calculator, and our unique techniques and methods, honed over a decade of video compression expertise.

Compare the clarity, quality, color and huge frame size to the small, crappy-looking video you see elsewhere.
The dream of delivering beautiful quality, 720P HD over the internet on demand is now a reality.
Bitrate Budget Calculator
Don’t make your viewers wait. The Bitrate Budget Calculator will tell you, for your particular situation, what bitrate value to stay under so your masterpiece starts playing just a moment after your viewers click on the web.
And helps you keep your podcast downloads as light as possible on your monthly bandwidth limit.
Batch image resizing, encoding and uploading
DV Kitchen shines when it comes to web video, but you will always need quality still images on your website. And DV Kitchen will handle this with ease, whether they were taken with a digital still camera, grabbed from TimeFreezer™, or created in Photoshop or any other image creation application. Just drag, drop, click, and walk away.
DV Kitchen will resize the images to your specs, rotating photos correctly from the EXIF metadata, encode them to jpeg (or several other formats), upload them to your web server in the folder of your choice, and if that weren’t enough, will even write image embed tags for you in HTML or forum post formats.
Integrated FTP uploading
DV Kitchen includes integrated automatic FTP uploading of your encoded video, images and audio to your web server, including a sweet remote folder browser with the ability to easily create new folders and even delete files.
Can the integration uploading feature of DV Kitchen take a three hour job down to 12 seconds?
It’s 6 pm, and I’m headed out the door to meet some friends for dinner when I find out there are three movies I need to encode and upload tonight! The client is on the east coast and wants to see the movies as soon as they get in the office. I think, dang! I’m going to have to miss dinner, stay at work until 9 or 10 pm until the movies finish encoding, and then start them uploading with a separate FTP program before I can leave.
How much of my time will this take?
SampleLab™ is a brilliantly-designed, easy-to-use software environment that helps you rapidly zero in on the perfect encoding settings for your movie.
Designed by one of the world’s top video encoding masters, it is the only efficient way to ensure the quality of your encoded video.
Without SampleLab, you’re just encoding in the dark.
TimeFreezer™ is an environment for choosing, encoding, optionally deinterlacing, and uploading still frames that will revolutionize the way you think about still photography.
An audio podcasters dream
With all the emphasis on video and images, remember that DV Kitchen is also an audio podcaster’s dream come true. Just drag your audio files into the Media List, choose an encoding preset and an FTP destination, and click “GO”.
Your own radio station is only a few clicks away.
