CyberLink releases the PowerDVD 19, the latest version of its movie and media playback software.
PowerDVD 19 builds on CyberLink’s legacy of playback technology, with video playback support for Ultra HD 8K and 4K HDR content. PowerDVD’s playback engine now also boasts native 64-bit support, allowing for Ultra HD 4K video to be enjoyed in better-than-original quality with TrueTheater audio-visual enhancement technology.
Although still new to the market, 8K displays are already starting to find their way into living rooms, and 8K video content isn’t far behind. With 8K video already on YouTube and mainstream TV broadcasts, it won’t be long until it is the norm for video media consumption.
An upgrade to PowerDVD’s playback engine helps deliver native 64-bit support allowing for Ultra HD 4K video quality to be upscaled thanks to CyberLink’s patented TrueTheater Color, Lighting & HDR technologies. The PC player already supports all major file formats and codecs, including those not natively supported by Windows such as HEVC (H.265) and new HEIC/HEIF image files.
PowerDVD 19 continues to promise better-than-original video and audio playback for Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD discs, major file formats and codecs, as well as 360˚ video. PowerDVD 19 also introduces spatial audio support for 360˚ videos. In addition, PowerDVD enables online entertainment to be more accessible, with users able to connect and watch YouTube Live, 4K, and HDR videos, or “pin” videos to watch offline later.
PowerDVD 19 is available for purchase from CyberLink’s online store.
