Review - CAT Video Repair Software


REVIEW PROMOTION No matter how careful we are, and no matter how digital the age, there will always come a time we need to repair a precious video.

Any long-term computer user has seen more corrupted hard drives and damaged memory cards than they would like - for themselves, let alone for friends and family.

Here’s where a good data repair tool pays for itself and is a piece of software you’ll be relieved to have on hand when you need it.

Imagine your parents or other loved ones telling you their memory card has all sorts of wonderful movies from their last holiday but something’s gone wrong and the videos no longer play. You can feel their distress because you’ve been there too.

What do you do? Well, you could fire up CAT Video Repair Software by CAT Data Recovery Tool and work through its simple wizard-like interface. In fact, it’s so simple and automated you only have three steps: select the file, let the app fix it, and then preview the repaired video and save it.

It's so simple it's hard to say a lot - the app just … works, and does so simply and elegantly. To be safe it does not touch the original file in any way; it creates a copy so there is no risk of further damaging the original file.

CAT Video Repair is a very clean tool and supports a good range of video formats including MOV, MP4, AVI, DIVX and XVID. It also supports videos created by iOS and Android devices along with GoPro, DSLR, CCTV and Drones.

CAT Video Repair is available as a subscription service, to ensure you always have the latest features. It’s $US 69.97 for the first six months and then $US 49.97 thereafter. For Australian users, that’s a price of $112.67 inc. GST on the exchange rate at the time of writing. The software runs on both Windows and Mac OS X.

CAT Video Repair is an admirable product for any tech-savvy person’s toolkit, and definitely for the creative professional’s arsenal.

The return on investment is difficult to quantify because your use of the product will vary and, of course, it fundamentally revolves around disasters more than everyday situations. Yet, what is the value you place on precious memories that are lost to a corrupt USB stick? This is the value CAT Video Repair offers, namely the security and peace of mind you can resurrect video otherwise seemingly lost.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
