So…What is Stomp?

While video files are a great way to share information with customers and employees, file size can be an issue. Stomp compresses video files so that they become smaller, and so are easier to email, upload and share.

To save you time Stomp comes with a variety of standard presets including those for outputting files appropriate for  iPhone, iPod Touch, iPod Video, Apple TV and YouTube. However, there are a lot of options so you can configure your own as well.

Another neat feature is Stomps has the ability to crop video so that you can zoom in on a particular area or cut out something unsightly on the edge of the screen. It is also possible to correct colors and brighten up the video too.
