Mobility, MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding (AVC), and MPEG-2/4 Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) Packs Take the Ultimate DVD Experience Even Further
CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a world leader and pioneer in providing integrated solutions for the Digital Home, has released three enthusiast packs to enhance the experience of the ultimate DVD playback software PowerDVD 6.
The PowerDVD 6 Mobility Pack is designed for notebook road warriors, letting them extend DVD viewing time via a choice of three power-saving profiles. CyberLink's testing delivered an average increase of 20-30% playback time.
The PowerDVD 6 MPEG-4 AVC Pack lets PowerDVD 6 users play files created using the MPEG-4 AVC H.264 video compression format. The MPEG-4 AVC standard has been adopted for both Blu-ray discs and High Definition DVDs and is incorporated into CyberLink's own capturing and compression application PowerEncoder MPEG-4 AVC Edition.
The PowerDVD 6 MPEG-2/4 AAC Pack is designed primarily for the Japanese market and playback of digital TV supporting the MPEG-2 Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) format. The MPEG-2/4 AAC Pack also supports the playing of AAC files complying with the MPEG-4 AAC standard. This includes unprotected M4A and MP4 iTunes files.
