"...Panasonic and CyberLink announced today that CyberLink's complete line of high-performance, easy-to-use DVD and MPEG-2 video capture, editing, production and playback solutions support Panasonic's 4.7GB DVD-RAM drives and media. With CyberLink advanced video and audio technology, users can produce DV and MPEG- 1 or -2 video output that can be economically stored and played back on removable, rewritable DVD discs. Panasonic and CyberLink will be demonstrating the products at the COMDEX DVD-RAM Pavilion, Booth L6459.
CyberLink's personal and professional video authoring and production software products include PowerDVR II, PowerDVD and Medi@Show. Used with Panasonic's DVD-RAM drives, up to 2 hours of theater-quality business, educational and home videos can be stored on a bare, single-sided 4.7GB disc. The videos can then be played back on the Panasonic DVD-RAM drives, newer-generation DVD-ROM drives and the recently announced DVD players and DVD recorders.
PowerDVR II offers a superior alternative to television time shifting with a VCR and hardware-based MPEG-1, -2 encoding technologies for real-time video recording. Taking advantage of today's faster PCs, CyberLink provides users with the ability to record a program onto DVD-RAM media, leave for a period of time, then come back and watch what they missed, while the program is still being recorded. In addition, users can record programs in real-time in MPEG-1 or 2 format for high quality, easy and low-cost archiving..."
