2-pass encoding & pre-configured encoding profiles

The SDK supports 2-pass encoding to generate the highest quality content along with many generic and ready-to-use encoding templates (e.g., MPEG-2 based digital TV formats like DVB and ATSC, as well as professional video recorders like Ikegami GF and the Sony XDCAM format family). It also enables real-time decoding of all consumer, professional and broadcast MPEG-1/2 formats.
