DVD and Video Converter?
Copy your movies and TV shows to your Apple, Android, Blackberry or Microsoft tablet with the fastest, easiest and most powerful app available.
No need to purchase your favorite movies again from Media Stores like Apple iTunes, Google Play, Blackberry World, or mess with nasty activation systems for Digital Copy movies, DVD Catalyst 4 converts your DVDs and popular video formats like AVI, ISO and MKV with the click of a button so you can watch them on whatever tablet or smartphone you have.
It really is that simple. Just start DVD Catalyst 4 on your computer, select your device (1000's of profiles included), insert your DVD or drag over your video files and tap Go. That is it!
But, don't confuse the ease of use of DVD Catalyst 4 with a lack of abilities though.
Almost all the features available in similar products are available in DVD Catalyst 4 as well, but, rather than forcing you to go through them for each conversion, DVD Catalyst 4 does everything automatically.
* DVD Catalyst 4 rips DVD and converts popular video formats such as AVI MKV and ISO.
Some companies consider DVD and Video as something separate, and offer "Best DVD Ripper" and "Best Video Converter" products, along with an "Ultimate Converter Bundle" for a "35% "discount", DVD Catalyst 4 is an "All in One" product and offers more for considerably less.
(Note: Protected video files (usually certain .m4v and wmv files), such as movies purchased/rented through Apple iTunes and Amazon Instant/Amazon UnBox, or so-called “Digital Copy” movies you get for free with some DVDs and Blurays (“Digital Copy Included”), can not be converted.)
*DVD Catalyst 4 works with all the latest smart phones and tablets.
It includes 1000's of profiles covering all the latest devices, including all the Apple iPad and iPhone models, NOOK's, Kindle Fire's, Transformers etc, along with media-capable devices such as the PS Vita and XBOX360.
* Batch conversion.
This is where DVD Catalyst 4 shines. If you already have your movies backed up to formats like AVI, MKV or DVD folders, just drag them on top of DVD Catalyst. 1 file or 10o's of files or folders, it doesn't matter, Drag & Drop and 1 click to start the process on all of them.
There is nothing else out there that even comes close to making batch conversions this easy.
* Subtitle support.
Of course DVD Catalyst 4 can include subtitles with your conversions. With DVDs, it is a simple checkmark, but subtitles in MKV files, as well as external subtitles in SRT format are supported as well. For text-based subtitles you can even change the font.
* Closed Caption Support.
Along with subtitles, DVD Catalyst 4 also supports closed captions, special subtitles that, along with spoken words, include descriptions on other sounds as well.
* Volume Boost.
DVD Catalyst 4 boosts the volume of all your conversions automatically using something we call Volume Maximizer. Rather than simply increasing the volume by a few fixed points, regardless of the volume of the original movie, DVD Catalyst 4 looks at the volume of your movie and increases it accordingly. As a result, all your conversions share the same, louder, volume.
* Remove black borders.
DVD Catalyst 4 automatically removes black borders from your movies, so you end up with the most video on your screen, and not with borders all around (top in the image above). By default it leaves the actual video portion in-tact (bottom left in the image above) but if you prefer to have your movies completely full-screen (bottom right in the image above), you can choose that as well of course.
As mentioned above, DVD Catalyst 4 is designed to do everything you can think of when it comes to conversions, automatically.
Most conversion tools work great for if you want to convert a movie once in a while, but if you have a lot of movies and TV shows to convert, they require you to work through the program's steps for each of your movies. Some have the capability of batch conversions, but you still have to set-up each conversion manually.
DVD Catalyst 4 includes powerful features such as automatic language/subtitle selection, folder-monitoring, multi-DVD-drive support, multi-device conversions, and it can even run completely on it's own if you want it to.
* Special HQXT profiles.
One of our favorite and most innovative features in DVD Catalyst 4 is the recent addition of HQXT profiles. These unique profiles (for supported devices) automatically adjust themselves depending on what you convert. With most ripping and conversion software, you have to adjust your settings if you convert different content. Certain settings work great for DVDs, but if you use those same settings for HD MKV files, the quality is not so great.
With these special HQXT profiles, it doesn't matter what you convert. It looks at the resolution of your video and it looks at the actual movie, and adjusts the conversion settings on-the-fly to make sure that you end up with the best looking video quality possible without wasting a lot of file space.
The majority of conversion tools on the market sell for something between $40-$70, and offer considerably less in terms of functionality and support.
DVD Catalyst 4 sells for $19.95, but for a limited time, it is available with a 50% discount, so you can get it for only $9.95.

(Note: DVD Catalyst 4 is Windows-only. It does not work on Apple Mac OS X or Linux)
