Download: Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 Service Pack 1 now Available

Microsoft today released the Expression Encoder 4 Service Pack 1 and it’s available for download at the Microsoft Download Centre.

It provides Live Template Support, Live Screen Capture, Caption Updates, improved De-interlacing Options, DRM Content Key, HE-AAC Codec, Live Push/Pull, and new Windows Phone 7 Presets.

Below are some of the changes in Expression Encoder 4 SP1 as outlined by Jamie Lang from the Expression Encoder team:

Screen capture as a live source – Now you can select the screen as a device in Live projects to stream or archive.

Live templates – Before if you wanted to use the Expression Encoder templates, you needed to hand edit the template to point to your live source. Now you can generate the template directly from the Live project and we will hook up all the links.

Live Push/Pull – Now you can broadcast and publish to a Windows Media Services publish point at the same time.

Improved De-interlacing Options – We have added a new de-interlacing option called ‘Selective Blend’ which provides a higher quality picture without the high CPU requirements of Pixel Adaptive. We have also exposed this and the other de-interlacing options in live.

Import script commands – Both in live (no timing) and on-demand, you can now import multiple captioning formats (ISMT, DFXP, SRT, XML, SAMI, SUB, TXT) to the Script Command panel.

DRM Content Key – If you PlayReady license server supports Content Key encryption, we now allow you to specify this key instead of a Key Seed to enable individual keys per item.

HE-AAC – We have added both Version 1 and Version 2 of the HE-AAC codec to allow encoding for supported devices.

New Windows Phone 7 presets – Now that the WIndows Phone 7 is out, we have created presets to enable direct playback (WMV, MP4) or creating video to use in a Smooth Streaming application using the Silverlight Media Framework phone template.
