CyberLink PowerDVD 18 Supports Ultra HD Blu-ray and 4K HDR


CyberLink today released PowerDVD 18, the latest version of its flagship movie and media player for 4K high dynamic range (HDR), Ultra-HD Blu-ray, virtual reality (VR), 360o and online streaming content.

With the trend moving from full HD to 4K, PowerDVD 18 supports the latest video formats, including Ultra HD Blu-ray, HDR 10 content and HEVC/H.265 videos.

Users who don't yet own a VR headset can now watch 360o video on their PC with a new viewing mode enabling users to see every angle simultaneously. Now boasting integrated playback support for both YouTube and Vimeo 360o, PowerDVD 18 brings a world of VR content straight to user's headsets or PCs. This extends to owners of new Windows Mixed Reality headsets who can access the same library of online 360o video through CyberLink's Power Media Player MR app.

In addition, PowerDVD 18 brings a new "Mini View" player to the program. This feature keeps the player on top of other windows, ensuring uninterrupted viewing of local or online videos. When coupled with the new YouTube Live integration, the Mini View player allows users to multitask on their PCs.

PowerDVD also now supports Fire TVT casting, in addition to Roku, Apple TV and ChromecastT streaming devices. It offers an easy way to send movies, music and photos wirelessly from PCs to a TV. By using PowerDVD, users can apply CyberLink's TrueTheater HDR, Color and Sound technologies to any streamed media content for playback.

Key Features of PowerDVD 18 include:

  • Supports playback of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray titles on Windows PCs.
  • Plays HDR 10 videos
  • H.265/HEVC on Windows 10-PowerDVD 18 enables users to watch videos shot using the H.265 codec, even though Windows 10 does not natively support.
  • Tri-View 360 Viewing Mode - an updated interface that shows every angle at a glance
  • Live Streaming-watch live content on YouTube with HDR support.
  • Play & Pin Online Videos-save online videos so they can be watched later, even without an internet connection.
  • Mini View-watch video content in a separate mini window that's always on top of your desktop screen
  • Media Casting-newly added support for Fire TV, in addition to Roku, Apple TV and Chromecast enables users to cast video, photo or music files to their TV, even in formats that aren't natively supported by their streaming device.
  • True Full Screen for Blu-ray-when watching a Blu-ray disc on an ultra-widescreen TV (21:9 or 2.35:1 aspect ratio), PowerDVD adjusts playback so that content fits your screen.
  • TrueTheater HDR-upscales standard video to HDR-like quality.
  • Power Media Player MR - virtual and mixed reality content with online content for the latest Windows MR headsets.

PowerDVD 18 is available today from the CyberLink online store in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, Korean, Russian and Portuguese.
