Nero 2014 Platinum Editor's Review

For optical media management, disc burning and intensive video editing, there are very few PC applications that can match up to the prowess of Nero. Germany based Nero, formerly known as Ahead software, is almost synonymous with CD and DVD burning for a majority of Windows based PC users. The software had been in the industry since the 1990s and with time it has evolved into a fully fledged multimedia suite. As it is, last few iterations of Nero focused on versatile media creation and management and the newest version, follows suit. With Nero 2014, you can burn all types of optical media, play Blu-ray discs, convert video to multiple formats and manage your PC’s media collection with ease.

The newest version of Nero has been spruced up to suit tastes of Windows 8 users to an extent. As was the case with its previous versions, hardware requirements are rather steep. Nero recommends using a PC equipped with AMD or Intel CPU with 2GHz speed or higher and 1 GB RAM. For Blu-Ray disc playback and hardcore video editing, better hardware is required. The hard drive space required for proper installation of all Nero components is 5 GB. The app supports Windows XP SP3 in 32 bit mode and subsequent Windows versions in both 32 and 64 bit modes. The suite costs $130 but users of earlier versions do get cheaper packages to upgrade.

As is evident from the newest release, Nero has focused on improving software performance and usability has been enhanced in some areas too. The new launch page is quick to load and it has software of the suite listed by functions. This is an improvement over the predecessor’s dashboard which was less useful and more aesthetically appealing. In the new version, you get a tile for each app. There is an information icon at the tile’s top part. The Windows 8 centric interface look nice but there is one limitation. It can be used in full screen or reduced mode. Since everything else operates in desktop mode, this is rather inconsistent.The streamlined interface is a welcome change but the new suite omits the BackItUp program which was included in previous versions.

The Kwik Media organizer has been integrated into MediaHome in this release. The new version of Nero MediaHome loads faster and using the app, you can stream media content like photo and music to any DLNA compliant device, such as LED TV on your network. However, MediaHome is still limited in overall usability. It can sort images by date or rating but editing features are just average. The option to upload to popular online photo-sharing services like Picasa and Flickr is missing as well. MediaHome is not ideal for long music playback either.

Nero redeems itself in video editing and conversion segment. Nero Recode is a capable tool to convert video to many popular formats including DVD video, AVCHD, MPEG-4 etc. Its neat interface is ideal for users to select source video files from multiple sources and specify output format. There are some presets and you can tweak output settings manually as well. While the queuing method of Recode is beneficial for users, the inclusion of a scheduled processing method would have made it perfect. The Disk to Device feature is a commendable addition and you can use it to copy content of a disc to cloud storage or an attached mobile device directly. It also saves a considerable amount of time and eliminates need to copy content from hard disc to the external devices.

The video editor of this suite, namely Nero Video has a start screen resembling that of Recode. However, it lacks the drag and drop simplicity of the latter app. Here, you need to select a number of import and output settings including resolution and frame rate. This is nevertheless necessary when you work in a project where videos of multiple resolutions are used. Other useful inclusions in the video section are Ultra HD 4K video support and dynamic soundtrack.

Veteran Nero users who grew up using Nero Burning ROM and its companion suite Nero Express, may like the fact these two apps have not been changed. While this may look inconsistent with overall appearance of the suite, Burning Rom is a robust, feature rich package. The disc creation process and settings remain nearly the same. You also get Nero Rescue Agent with the suite, useful for recovering content from damaged media discs.

Positive Points:
 -  Streamlined tile based interface, enhanced usability.
 -  Supports formats like Ultra HD 4k video, 3D Blu-Ray.
 -  Robust media conversion and editing.
 -  Versatile optical media creation.
 -  Direct output to mobile device and cloud services.

Negative Points:
 -  Not light on wallet.
 -  Steep hardware requirement.
 -  Launch interface supports only Full screen mode.
 -  No scheduled processing in Recode.
 -  MediaHome offers limited audio playback and image editing features.

Conclusion:
Nero’s new media suite offers some significant improvements over predecessor and a handful of new features. Support for latest HD media formats is a boon and robust video handling capabilities of the app leave little room for industry rivals. However, there are some minor glitches like omission of BackItUp, Start Interface in full screen only mode and MediaHome’s image editing limitations. Those with previous versions may not find compelling reasons to upgrade but media professionals dealing with hardcore media conversion and editing will embrace the new version.

Rating: 4/5
