PowerDVD 9 feature highlights include the new TrueTheater Technology, which is offering DVD up-scaling to HD-like quality
Cinema Mode for watching Blu-ray Discs via Windows Media Center.
It is a suite of advanced video and audio enhancement technologies such as the "TrueTheater HD" that up-scales DVD video for HD-like
results and the "TrueTheater Motion" that up-converts DVD video frame rates for smoother playback. In additon, the "TrueTheater
Stretch" technology stretches video without image distortion, while the "TrueTheater Lighting" enhances video image for a
brighter, clearer movie. Last but not least, the "TrueTheater Surround" creates multichannel audio output for conventional stereo speakers.
The "Cinema Mode" option displays menu items and movie information in a larger format for home theater viewing on larger displays.
Cinema Mode also integrates with Microsoft Windows Media Center to provide Blu-ray Disc playback.
"FancyView" enables a navigation experience with animated,catalog-style browsing functionality. It is a fun way to browse
through titles in a user's Movie Collection, as a way of previewing chapters on a DVD, and works in both Classic Mode and Cinema Mode.
FancyView can be used with touch screens, a remote control, keyboard, and mouse.
