Rip/Convert Blu-ray movies to Apple TV 3rd generation for playing on HDTV in Full-HD 1080p
Despite its ugly new interface, the new Apple TV is still the best of its breed. In terms of an overall, pants-on-couch experience, the Apple TV 2012 is still the best streaming box you can plug into your tube—followed by a Roku. The status quo remains. But Apple, long overdue, is now beaming movies at the highest possible HD quality: 1080p. For the first time, this means the Apple TV 3rd generation isn’t just the gold standard of streaming movies, but a contender against the King of All Physical Media, the Blu-ray.
Besides starting the fun right away with streaming music, videos, and photos from iTunes Store or iOS devices like new iPad 3, iPhone 4S to instantly watch HD movies & popular TV shows, we can also experienced Blu-rays as big as life on your HDTV in Full-HD 1080p with the NEW Apple TV 3rd generation. Of course, I’m not about to pay iTunes’ ridiculous prices to watch the movies and TV shows I already own on Blu-ray. Instead, I’ll just rip those Blu-ray discs to an Apple TV friendly format with 1080p Full-HD quality.
If you’re interested in doing likewise, Check out Pavtube’s Blu-ray to Apple TV (ATV 3) Converter for Mac. Specially designed for Blu-ray video zealots who use Mac OS, the programs can rip/convert/compress commercial Blu-ray movies and standard DVD movies to original Apple TV / ATV 2 / new Apple TV / iPad (iPad, iPad 2 and new iPad) supported H.264 (*.mp4) and MPEG-4 (*.mp4) formats with resolution up to 1080p. It is easy to use for editing and conversion and makes great quality copies of my Blu-rays and DVDs. The audio/video synchronization is very good, the size of the subtitles too. The time it takes to convert in this software is almost half that in other. The Mac BD Ripper is on sale through March. 9, 2012 if you choose this option.
The software works like most other Blu-ray rippers I’ve used. The most important piece of the equation is that you have a Blu-Ray drive hooked to your Mac. Pop in your disc, choose an Apple TV 3 output profile (H.264 MP4, or HD MP4 in 1080p). Here recommend you “iPad > iPad 3 (New iPad) Full HD Video(*.mp4)“. This profile is specially designed for new iPad 3, but also works for the new Apple TV. Finally click convert. Then go get a cup of coffee (conversion takes some time).
