The World’s leading multimedia player embraces the future of
entertainment with support for 8K video & exclusive enhancements for 4K
content, to deliver the ultimate media experience for both PC & Home
Theaters.

TAIPEI, Taiwan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/360Video?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#360Videolt;/agt;–CyberLink
Corp.
(5203.TW), today announced the release of PowerDVD
19
, the latest version of its leading movie and media playback
software. PowerDVD 19 builds on CyberLink’s legacy of cutting-edge
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 unique TrueTheaterTM
audio-visual enhancement technology.


8K video is the next wave in superior definition home entertainment.
Although still new to the market, 8K displays are already starting to
find their way into an increasing number of 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. By supporting 8K video playback, on top of
Ultra HD 4K and 360˚, CyberLink is ensuring PowerDVD users are best
placed to enjoy the future of multimedia.

“Being the World’s No. 1 movie and media player, PowerDVD has a long
history of delivering pioneering multimedia playback features, functions
and support to our millions of users,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of
CyberLink. “PowerDVD 19’s support for 8K video playback welcomes the
next generation in ultra high-definition home entertainment.”

A significant 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 TrueTheaterTM Color, Lighting
& HDR technologies. Already supporting all major file formats and
codecs, including those not natively supported by Windows such as HEVC
(H.265) and new HEIC/HEIF image files, these latest updates make
PowerDVD the leading player on PC and the ultimate addition to Home
Theater systems.

PowerDVD 19 continues to guarantee 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, making VR video feel almost as
real as being there in person. 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.
