CyberLink announced today that PowerDVD BD Edition incorporates Java technology, providing full BD-J advanced content support for Blu-ray Discs played via PowerDVD.
BD-J enables bonus content on Blu-ray Disc titles to support a wide range of new features, including interactivity and advanced menus, movie-related gaming, and network access that supports features like the download of trailers or live events.
BD-J is based on the Java Micro Edition (JME) from Sun Microsystems, which is also found in over a billion mobile phones and millions of televisions, set-top boxes, automobiles, and other embedded devices. Sun worked closely with CyberLink to integrate Sun's Java CDC Hotspot Implementation into CyberLink PowerDVD BD Edition, ensuring best-in-class performance and compatibility.
PowerDVD BD Edition has recently been certified by the Blu-ray Disc Association and will thus carry the Blu-ray Disc logo.
