The ultimate multimedia suite
Nero Platinum is the ultimate media suite. It gives you everything you need to burn CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray, together with a video conversion, organization, editing, and enhancement. It also can assist you in creating a data backup.
The Platinum version includes the renowned Nero Burning ROM, Nero BackItUp, MediaHome, and an interesting mobile app Nero AirBurn, which allows you to burn folders to a CD/DVD directly from your mobile.
Much more than a CD writer
The idea behind Nero Platinum is to give the user a multimedia editing power equal to that of a small professional studio. The applications are divided into four categories: management, playback, and streaming; editing and conversion; copy/burning; and backup/recovery.
The heart of the suite is Nero Burning ROM, a classic capable of burning every file to any existing optical disc. Its SecureDisc and DiscSpan technologies allow for large file burning and data endurance in good time. The simplified version - Nero Express is also available, and with the AirBurn app it's possible to burn files directly from your phone.
Nero Platinum’s multimedia section consists of the Nero Video editor, which lets you record video in up to 4K from your digital camera or TV (if your graphics card allows you), quickly create films, and burn them to a DVD or Blu-ray. Nero Recode is the accessory which takes care of a format conversion (mobile, DVD, etc.). Videos can be played right away from Nero Blu-ray Player, and can be organized with other files through MediaHome.
Closing the suite is the excellent Nero BackItUp, a backup tool that throughout the years has become a landmark for household data security. BackItUp is downloaded separately, although it is included in the same license. The new addition is Nero RescueAgent, a deleted files recovery tool that is very similar to Recuva, but with less options.
Power easy to control
Nero has always taken care of its documentation and the usability of its tools. Most have just changed their design throughout the years, which veteran users appreciate. Each application comes with a help file and video tutorials, which you can access from the suite launcher.
Nero Platinum's tools boast having a clear and foolproof design. Nero Video, for example, has an express mode and an advanced one: this division allows something as complex as video editing to become one single action accessible to all.
Nero Platinum’s applications' quality and performance is superlative. Burning with Nero Burning ROM is an experience without any unpleasant surprises, and you will find that same reliability in Nero Recode and RescueAgent. The only negative side is the launcher - an ugly window that takes over the whole screen.
A single package to do everything smoothly
Ask yourself how many programs you need to burn and copy DVDs, edit your videos and backup files. Then ask yourself if managing all these programs is easy and if they interact well. Does Movie Maker run well with CDBurnerXP? Can you take pictures on your phone without running them through iTunes?
With Nero Platinum, those doubts disappear. In a single package you have everything you need to enjoy your multimedia files without any headaches. Perhaps its tools don't offer the same as professional programs, but for such a competitive price you can't ask for more.
