Enhance playback of movies, music, photos and video with TrueTheater
TrueTheater HD upscales DVDs and standard definition video to 1080 resolution while eliminating jagged edges and video artifacts. For Blu-ray discs and HD movie files, TrueTheater HD adds edge enhancement, color and lighting technologies to boost the HD movie experience on large displays.
TrueTheater Motion utilizes a frame-rate conversion process to ensure smoother scene movements and fluid screen action. Enhance frame-rate up to 60fps or 72fps (75fps for PAL) depending on your monitor. Enjoy smoother playback—even during scenes with rapid panning and zooming.
TrueTheater 3D converts 2D content into 3D, offering a whole new viewing experience for content such as Blu-ray and DVD movies, photo slideshows, YouTube videos and more. The depth of the 3D experience can be optimized with easy slider controls to get the best results from your 3D display.
TrueTheater Lighting automatically adjusts video colors, contrast, and brightness to deliver improved detail and an enhanced viewing experience. Balancing overly dark and overexposed scenes, TrueTheater Lighting is ideal for correcting the loss of detail inherent with some LCD and CRT monitors.
TrueTheater Stretch employs a non-linear stretching technique that automatically adjusts the viewing ratio of video to match the output display, with minimal distortion. Watch standard-format videos and DVD movies with natural looking results regardless of the content's original aspect ratio.
TrueTheater Stabilizer applies motion compensation technology to smooth shaky hand-held video or video shot while moving. Stabilization is one of the easiest ways to making casual videos look more professional to give users a better viewing experience.
TrueTheater Denoise removes artifacts found in video shot in low light or at high ISO settings and reduces TV signal noise. Sometimes the shots you want are just plain dark, especially when you take home videos. TrueTheater Denoise helps make those clips better.
TrueTheater Surround expands 2-channel content to up to 8 channels to create an enhanced surround-sound experience. Likewise, it simulates surround sound when multi-channel audio is played through headphones and stereo speakers, creating a wider sound image.
