Unsurpassed Video Quality
Intensely Vivid Images
The second generation of CyberLink's world-renowned video enhancing technology makes images brighter and colors more natural. CLEV-2 adjusts a scene's chroma and luminance to enhance image detail, and thus achieves the best possible results for LCD/CRT monitors and playback of overly dark or bright DVD movies.
Smart Video Deinterlacing
CyberLink's adaptive video deinterlacing technology ensures a smoother and clearer video image while playing video files and DVDs. Deinterlacing is unavoidable as a result of playing interlaced DVD video on modern high-definition (mainly non-interlaced) displays (e.g. TVs). Without advanced deinterlacing, video can appear jagged, blotchy, shadowy, or blurry. CyberLink's intelligent deinterlacing technology retains video quality and minimizes distortion by analyzing video frame-by-frame and dynamically applying adaptive deinterlacing only when necessary.
Users also have a choice of deinterlacing options, including automatic deinterlacing or user-defined settings. Defining how
deinterlacing is performed and by what algorithm is also an option: Pixel Adaptive, Median or Bob.
PowerDVD supports multiple display ratios, letting users play 4:3 DVD movies on widescreen displays and 16:9 DVD movies on 4:3 displays. A natural stretching technology is utilized to avoid losses that would otherwise be created by Pan & Scan cropping or Letterbox display
Superior Audio Fidelity
Cinematic Surround Sound
The second generation of CyberLink's proprietary audio technology expands 2-channel audio into multi-channel audio (e.g. CD expanded to 5.1 channels). CLMEI-2 maps stereo or general surround sound and converts it for output via a maximum of 7.1-channel systems. Music mode, Movie mode, and the unique Onstage music modes are offered.
Virtual Surround Sound
CyberLink's Virtual Surround technologies simulates the feeling of surround sound when multi-channel audio is played via two speakers or headphones (CLVS and CLHP). PowerDVD provides a choice of three audio environments for CLVS: Living Room, Theater, and Stadium.
Virtual Surround Sound
CyberLink Headphone and CyberLink Virtual Surround let you enjoy a wider sound image and virtual surround experience via two speakers or headphones.
