CyberLink Passes World's First PC Recording Certification for DVD-VR
DVD Authoring Software CyberLink PowerProducer 3 Now Features both PC Authoring and PC Recording Logos
Taipei, Taiwan - Jan. 27, 2005--CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a world leader and pioneer in providing integrated solutions for the Digital Home, will now carry the DVD Forum's PC Recording Logo for DVD-VR (Video Recording) on its PowerProducer 3 software. PowerProducer 3 is the world's first DVD authoring software application that is identified with the PC Recording for DVD-VR - a symbol of compatibility for DVD-VR playback and editing.
The PC Recording Logo for DVD-VR that PowerProducer 3 received ensures consumers confidence that rewritable discs that have undergone re-editing or rewriting may be played or re-edited on drives and players certified by the DVD Forum.
