InterVideo Launches WinDVD 8


InterVideo today announced WinDVD? 8, the latest release of the software DVD player.

WinDVD 8 is available in two versions. WinDVD 8 Platinum will appeal to power users who want the latest audio/video technologies, such as H.264 and VC1 support, and the ability to integrate with the Media Center and UPnP home networking. WinDVD 8 Gold is designed for movie lovers and business travelers who just want an easy way to enjoy high-quality movie playback. Both versions are Windows Vista-compatible.

Universal Player

A universal player, the Platinum version can be used to play back the latest high-definition file formats, such as MPEG2-HD, VC1, WMV-HD and H.264 HD, as well as all the standard-definition formats like MPEG-4, Real, QuickTime and WMV (Windows Media Video). WinDVD 8 also extends its support for DivX multimedia technology.

UPnP Client and Server

Now WinDVD 8 Platinum supports UPnP home networks as Server or Client. Installing the UPnP Server that comes with WinDVD 8 Platinum, you can set up folders, set permissions, and make content available through the network. The Client plays back content from other UPnP-certified devices within a network. Both WinDVD 8 Gold and Platinum versions can serve as UPnP Client and work with other UPnP Servers available on the market.

Multi-threaded & Mobility

WinDVD 8 supports Intel CoreTM 2 Duo, allowing multitasking while playing back high-definition video/audio formats. WinDVD 8 also features Mobile Technology, which helps users extend the battery life and playback time of mobile PCs based on Intel CentrinoTM processors.

Fun-to-use Tools

Like the previous versions, WinDVD 8 is also enhanced with the fun-to-use tools. Hitting the Boss Key instantly pauses and hides the player. WinDVD 8 also allows choosing color themes so users can personalize the look of the player to match their mood or desktop. Fun features such as "Let Night" or " Broadway" audio effects and QuickClip 2 for capturing video to save in GIF format are also provided.

Go High-Def

As more and more high-definition Blu-ray and HD DVD discs are entering the market, InterVideo, as the technology leader in video and audio decoding, has complied with all the requirements for playing back these advanced disc formats in full, high-definition quality. WinDVD was selected as the player of choice for OEM customers like Sony and Toshiba, bundling the HD version with their first-to-market HD DVD and Blu-ray-capable PCs.

Users who buy WinDVD 8 Gold or Platinum can get HD DVD/Blu-ray Disc Playback functionality by purchasing the HD Upgrade Pack, available separately from www.intervideo.com.

WinDVD 8 can be used with desktop and laptop computers running Windows XP and Windows Vista . WinDVD 8 Gold, the standard consumer edition, and WinDVD 8 Platinum, InterVideo's high-end version, is available at InterVideo's web site at www.intervideo.com and will be at retail outlets around the world within the next few weeks. The suggested list prices are $39.95 for WinDVD 8 Gold and $59.95 WinDVD 8 Platinum. Upgrades for current licensed WinDVD users will also be available on the InterVideo web site.
