CyberLink Releases MPEG-4 AVC Encoding Software to the Consumer Market

CyberLink Corp. (TSE:5203), a leading developer of digital video software and training solutions today released PowerEncoder MPEG-4 AVC Edition, the consumer application to capture and convert video using the H.264 standard.

PowerEncoder MPEG-4 AVC Edition sets a new benchmark for video compression by dramatically improving the compression ratio of files without the visible image loss associated with traditional compression techniques.

CyberLink's own testing reduced a 1-hour, 88 GB uncompressed digital video clip into an H.264 file only 879 MB in size. The compression ratio achieved was 102:1, with the compressed video reduced to only 1% of its original size.

MPEG-4 AVC (H.264), also know as MPEG-4 part 10, has already been included by the DVD Forum as a mandatory capability of players for the HD-DVD format. Blu-ray DVDs will also incorporate the H.264 standard.

"CyberLink PowerEncoder MPEG-4 AVC Edition is for anyone who is looking for a way to capture and compress video while retaining the quality of their original files," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "By converting files to the H.264 format, users can save huge amounts of storage space, whether storing on a hard disk, posting files on the Internet, or burning data to DVDs."

CyberLink PowerEncoder MPEG-4 AVC also delivers the following breakthrough features:

-- Superb Video Quality and Advanced Compression

The MPEG-4 AVC standard achieves substantial superiority of video quality when files are compressed. PowerEncoder MPEG-4 AVC Edition therefore delivers higher quality video even at low bit rates.

-- Broad Support for Existing Video Formats

PowerEncoder MPEG-4 AVC Edition allows video conversion from popular video formats, including: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, DivX, VOB, and DV-AVI. It also supports the converting of DVD video files with Dolby Digital(1) audio, letting users convert movie discs into MPEG-4 AVC format including audio.

-- Prepared for Next-Generation Video Content

The release of PowerEncoder MPEG-4 AVC Edition prepares OEM customers for the widespread introduction of products and services based on the MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) format, including transmission of TV over DSL connections and digital terrestrial TV, the transmission of multiple high-definition video programs via satellite or cable services, and video transmission via mobile phone systems.

-- Easy Previewing and Quick Conversion of Video Files

PowerEncoder MPEG-4 AVC Edition features DV QuickScan, a CyberLink video technology that greatly improves the speed and ease of digital video capturing. Multiple options allow users to customize their video profiles according to their specific needs.
