AccuSplit is designed to split large files and computer videos into smaller segments to allow for easy archival to external media like DVD, CD-R or floppy disks. These file segments can then be recombined at a later time into an exact copy of the original file. The application is capable of segmenting and then correctly reconstructing ANY file, even ultra-large Windows Backup files exceeding 150GB.
To insure that the file reconstructed from the file segments exactly matches the original source file AccuSplit incorporates an advanced cryptographic algorithm that computes an MD5 Message Digest for both the original and reconstructed files. An MD5 match between these files indicates with absolute certainty that no data was lost during the file split and reconstruction process. AccuSplit also includes the capability to create RAID-formatted file segments. In this mode the software creates file segments that are embedded with a very powerful RAID-style error correction mechanism which allows it to correct for data errors on damaged media - errors ranging from a single corrupted data byte on a scratched CD to an entirely missing file segment are fully correctable with this option.
AccuSplit also includes a special Video Smart Split mode that can split AVI (including DIVX / XVID / INDEO / DV-AVI), WMV, WMV-HD, DVR-MS, and MPEG-1 format files (including Video-CD) into "independently playable" segments without a lengthy video re-rendering process. Now you can split your large videos into CD-sized (or any other size) segments and play them back directly from the CD - no file reconstruction is required. The software also a includes a Video Preview option that allows the user to manually adjust the location of the file split points - avoiding splits in the middle of an important scene.
AccuSplit runs as a stand-alone executable - there is nothing to install, doesn't include any annoying AdWare plug-ins, and runs under Windows [95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Server2003/Vista].
* Quickly and easily split ANY file into segments for easy archival to external media like DVD-R, CD-R, Zip or floppy disks.
Do you have a large Windows Backup file of 2GB, 4GB, 10GB, or one even larger than 150GB? AccuSplits Standard Split mode can easily split this (or any other) file into pieces for storage on DVD or CD. These file segments can then be recombined at a later time into an exact copy of the original file. Additionally, to insure that the reconstructed file exactly matches your original source file AccuSplit incorporates an advanced cryptographic algorithm that computes an MD5 Message Digest for the original file, the file segments, and the reconstructed file. An MD5 Message Digest match between these files indicates with absolute certainty that no data was lost during the file split and reconstruction process.
Some of the other features that AccuSplit offers include:
* Integrated Data Compression capability that allows you to create compressed file segments so that you can maximize the amount of data that can be placed on your archive media
* Full Command Line Support so that you can use it to perform unattended operations in batch scripts or other automated processes.
* Don't ever assume that your backups are foolproof. AccuSplit's RAID-formatted file segments insure seamless error recovery of corrupted data.
Archiving your important files or data backups to removable CD or DVD media is a well recognized method of protecting these files from loss. But what happens if some of the archive disks become damaged or misplaced? The first thing to remember is that it is much easier save your data than it is to recover it. However, AccuSplit makes it incredibly easy to do both. The software can create file segments that are embedded with a very powerful error correction mechanism. Patterned after the Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) technology that is used in high-availability and enterprise-grade environments, AccuSplit's Create RAID File Segments option allows the software to correct for data errors on damaged media. Errors ranging from a single corrupted data byte on a scratched CD to an entirely missing file segment are fully correctable with this option.
* Quickly and easily split video files into independently playable segments.
Do you have a large MPEG-1, DV-AVI (Digital camcorder), standard AVI (including DIVX, XVID, and Indeo), WMV, WMV-HD (720p, 1080i, 1080p), or even a DVR-MS (Windows Media Center) format video file that you would like to split into independently playable segments that can be played directly from CD/DVD? AccuSplits Video File Smart Split mode makes this process simple, fast, and painless. Simply select your video, click the Video File Smart Split option, select the size you want for the file segments, and click the SPLIT button thats it! AccuSplits special Smart Split technology enables it to quickly split your video files without having to perform any time consuming and video quality degrading re-rendering of the video content. Some of AccuSplit's other key video capabilities include:
* The Video Smart Split mode supports almost all of the typical multimedia formats. For a complete list of formats that are supported click here.
* Complete support for both Type-1 and Type-2 DV-AVI files (Digital Camcorder)
* Support for DV-AVI files that utilize 4-channel audio
* Transcoding capability for DV-AVI files which allows you to easily convert your DV files between the Type-1 and Type-2 DV formats. The Smart Split technology insures that no re-rendering is required during the transcoding process.
* Full Command Line support allows AccuSplit to perform unattended operations within batch script files.
AccuSplit also includes a special Preview Split Points option (screen_shot) that allows the user to preview the video segments and to optionally adjust the start and stop locations for each file segment. This way you can easily adjust the file split points so that they occur at the optimum time meaning you will no longer have to tolerate splits that occur in the middle of an important scene. The Preview Window also includes several features typically found only in larger, more complicated (and more expensive!) video editing applications. These features include:
* A frame stepping function that lets the user manually single-step though the video clip using the cursor keys. The step increment is adjustable in selectable intervals ranging from a single frame to five minutes.
* An advanced frame detection algorithm that can automatically detect special marker frames like keyframes, black frames, and fade-point frames within your video.
* A frame capture function that enables you to capture an individual video frame and to save that frame as a bitmap ( *.BMP ) file.
All of these features make it incredibly easy to create precise, professional-looking video splits with only a few clicks of your mouse.
