Sony has announced a new multicodec HD encoder for BluRay authoring. Starting at $55k, it’s a bit of a splurge for the hobbyist, but I bet it comes in a very attractive box.

High end compression tools do some amazing stuff though, like the ability to customize compression parameters on a frame-by-frame basis, after the encode, without re-encoding the rest of the stream. Sexy.
