New Xtractor extracts files from DVDs

HEURIS, makers of the MPEG Power Professional encoding software, are shipping a shipping a new product: the Xtractor, which can be used to extract or "rip" audio and video files from unencrypted DVDs. Users can demultiplex and extract elementary streams from MPEG 1 system streams, MPEG2 program streams, and MPEG 2 transport streams, including HDTV streams recorded with a DTV decoder card.

The Xtractor can also be used to extract DVD VR formatted MPEG streams recorded with Hitachi DZMV100 DVD camera or Panasonic's DMR-E20 line of DVD recorders. This lets you add new and different audio tracks to encoded video streams or simply to recover elementary streams from a finished DVD project.

The Xtractor is compatible with the traditional Mac operating system (there's no mention of a Mac OS X version). To use it, you select an output folder, drag and drop the MPEG file onto Xtractor, and the MPEG elementary streams are extracted and saved to the output directory.

The Xtractor is currently available directly from HEURIS for US$149. You can purchase it from the company's Web site.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
