Badaboom is a blazingly fast media converter that formats video files for a variety of devices, including iPod, PSP, Blackberry, and YouTube, by using your system's graphics processing unit (GPU). Badaboom® takes a fundamentally different approach to video format conversion from other solutions. Instead of performing format conversion on the CPU, it harnesses massively parallel GPUs from NVIDIA. By using the power of CUDA-enabled GPUs, the time required for video conversion is reduced. As an added bonus, you can still use the CPU for normal everyday tasks such as email and internet browsing. Anyone can now painlessly convert video from a wide array of formats to mp4 to play on your portable media device, leaving more time to enjoy the video and eliminating the frustration of video conversion delays. Not only is the Badaboom® Media Converter fast and easy to use, it provides high quality output (up to 1080p!) to keep your videos looking crisp and clear.

The Badaboom® Media Converter formats video and audio files for a variety of devices using a process called transcoding. In
the old days of video, there was broadcast television, VCRs, and that’s about it; video came in very standard flavors. With the
proliferation of digital media players came a similar proliferation of video formats, making for widespread incompatibility.
Badaboom® is the solution to this incompatibility: it takes video files from any source and formats them for a wide variety of
