With our significant investment in research and development, CyberLink is able to quickly offer solutions that empower its customers to embrace the excitement of creating their own videos in ultra-high definition,” said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. “With this, PowerDirector 12 users can now create and produce video content at a whole new level of quality and realism.”
