Press Release

CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW) is pleased to announce its flagship products PowerDVD, PowerDirector, MediaShow and MediaEspresso are now optimised for the AMD Fusion Family of Accelerated Processing Units (APUs),providing users with Hardware Accelerated HD playback when using AMD UVD 3 (Unified Video Decoder) technology. Utilising AMD Fusion APUs, CyberLink offers enhanced video editing, effects rendering and accelerated facial recognition optimised for DirectX 11 DirectCompute and maximum video transcode performance.

Transcoding can be a very time-consuming and computationally intensive process. With the new AMD Fusion UVD 3 and AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) technology, CyberLink PowerDirector – the world’s first 64-bit video editing software – offers up to 3.7x faster video rendering speed, allowing users to produce professional-looking videos in less time. MediaEspresso, universal media conversion software, now offers ultra-fast transcoding capability via the UVD 3 Decoder, enabling consumers to enjoy up to 2.75x speedup in performance, significantly reducing waiting time while giving users more time to share and enjoy their HD videos.

By leveraging Hardware Acceleration on AMD E-Series APUs, the updated version of CyberLink PowerDVD, the No. 1 Blu-ray and HD playback software, now supports MPEG-2 VLD hardware decode using AMD UVD 3 technology. The updated version enables Full HD Blu-ray playback, allowing users to experience smooth playback plus the benefit of ultra low CPU usage by saving up to 70% of CPU loads.
MediaShow’s FaceMe Technology is optimised for AMD Fusion APU’s DirectX 11 capable core. Using DirectX 11 DirectCompute acceleration on AMD Fusion processors, MediaShow, a fast and easy photo and video organiser, enables accelerated facial recognition up to 35%, making it super easy and quick to find people from a large range of photos.

“CyberLink is dedicated to providing the best possible entertainment experience. We are excited to leverage AMD’s cutting-edge Fusion Family of APUs on CyberLink’s complete product line-up to deliver enhanced and ultra-fast media experiences for consumers.”

Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink Corp

“CyberLink and AMD are working toward a common goal: enabling the visually intense future of computing and media playback. We’re excited to continue our work with the CyberLink team as they optimize their applications for AMD Fusion APUs. Bringing a theater-quality experience into the home is precisely the type of application for which we designed our Fusion products.”

John Taylor, director of Client Product and Software Marketing for AMD (NYSE: AMD)
