Smart Buffering for Smoother Playback

PowerDVD's intelligent media buffering engine means that you no longer have to deal with stuttery, stop-start video playback especially when you're streaming video from a NAS device.

Enhanced 4K Playback

PowerDVD ensures smoother, lag-free playback of Ultra HD 4K video, even when played on big screen Ultra HD TVs.

Enjoy Ultra HD Video on Your Own Big Screen

With overlay rendering PowerDVD is able to better render video in accordance with the monitor it is being played on. When PowerDVD detects a 4K video file and a 4K monitor, Overlay Mode is automatically engaged to optimize the rendering pipeline and reduce the graphic resource load, delivering smooth, lag-free playback.
