Nero 2016 Classic is the slimmed down version of Nero 2016 Platinum. It comes packed with many of the best features of the comprehensive Platinum edition, including all of the same mobile apps. It provides you with the ability to stream straight to Android and iOS smartphones. You can also do the reverse; send video from an Android and iOS mobile device and burn it immediately, thanks to the updated "AirBurn" feature.
Like many other products in the Nero range, Nero 2016 Classic has support for geotagging, called "Places". That means media filmed on a smartphone, tablet or other compatible device can be organised by its location metadata.
The software has also been updated with a new look and feel. The brand new launcher is now organized into five sections: "Manage & Play", "Edit & Convert", "Rip & Burn", "Backup & Rescue", and "Extras".
The help section has also been improved in this version, with comprehensive guides to walk you through the process of managing content and completing projects.
While Nero 2016 Classic is a slimmed down version of its big brother, it still has support for cloud storage in various ways. Nero BackItUp is essentially a storage service that lets you access and play back content from anywhere. Media is organised by date in MediaHome, Nero's content manager, and segmented according to media type as well.
Nero 2016 Classic, also houses some really cool modules. Nero Recode, for example, rips disc contents or regular audio and video files, and converts them to a particular format, to play on a certain device, or burn them to disc. Nero Burning ROM is again at the the core of the package; burning CDs, DVDs or Blu-rays. With it, you can optionally encrypt your content or split it across multiple discs. If you run the suite on a dual monitor system, then you'll be able to preview your content full-screen on the second display as well.
The downside of Nero 2016 Classic, is you lose the ability to play back Ultra HD (4K). Otherwise, apart form extra content and video effects and the "stashimi" recorder, the main difference between this and the Platinum suite is the price tag.
