For some time now, Nero has left behind the idea that it was only a program to burn CDs and DVDs to become one of the most complete multimedia suites on the current scene. It is true that in the late 90s and early 2000s, this software was Synonym of burn Optical Discs and we used it every day to burn music CDs, save the movies we downloaded from the Internet or make copies of video games. But times have changed.
Now there are much more adequate and comfortable media to store, transport and access information than a simple disk that ends up deteriorating. AND we no longer consume multimedia content as before. CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays have given way in favor of external memory and cloud storage, and the downloading of music, movies, series and games has given way to online services such as Spotify, Netflix or Steam.
Manage any aspect of your digital life wherever you go.
But far from falling into disuse and oblivion, Nero has managed to reinvent itself. Has become in one of the best multimedia packages for Windows with a variant Classic and another Platinum that bring us endless functions to work on our multimedia files from the comfort of our desktop.
Nero 2021 Platinum: 7 tools in 1
The guys at Nero did not want to leave absolutely anything to chance and that is why they have included in the Platinum 2021 suite, a total of six tools with which we can work on practically any aspect of our videos, photos and music:
- Nero Video: it is the video editing tool in the suite with which we can modify any video, including those we record with our mobile phone, and create perfect movies and presentations, adding our own soundtrack and an infinity of effects.
- Nero MediaHome: through this function we will have direct access to our online multimedia files stored in OneDrive, allowing us to organize and play them via streaming directly from the cloud without having to download anything.
- Nero DuplicateManager Photo: it is very possible that over time we end up downloading or saving copies of the same images on our PC, creating duplicates that only take up space on our hard drive. With this option we can easily find them and eliminate those that we do not need.
- Nero BackItUp: this option is focused on keeping our most valuable files always safe thanks to the programming of automatic backups that will be saved in the online storage service of our choice. All this, in a safe way by means of data encryption and occupying the minimum possible space through the compression of the files.
- Nero Recode: with this tool we will be able to rip the contents of any optical disc, either DVD or Blu-ray, and convert the extracted video or audio to another format that better suits our needs.
- Nero Burning ROM– Nero’s most classic feature in case some laggards still need to burn discs, but now with technology SecurDisc 4.0, which includes 256-bit encryption and password protection so that all our data is safe.
More competition for Spotify
Yes, we have only named six tools, not that we have forgotten to count. Because to the previous characteristics we have to add another tool: Audials Music Recorder, the online music streaming function with download options developed by Nero. We will have access to countless songs through over 100,000 online radio stations and thousands of concerts and music videos, being able to enjoy all the contents online or download them in MP3 format.
In addition to the previous functions, this Platinum version also includes other classic Nero tools so that we do not miss any of the traditional utilities of this pack such as Nero MediaBrowser, Nero Cover Designer, Nero TuneItUp or Nero Rescue Agent. Almost nothing.
