CyberLink Supports Microsoft's Certified Output Protection Protocol (COPP) for DVI-HDCP Transmission

Taipei, Taiwan----May 12th, 2005----CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a world leader and pioneer in providing integrated solutions for the Digital Home today announced strategic support for Certified Output Protection Protocol (COPP) device driver technology to enable High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) during the transmission of digital video between applications and high definition displays.

Software designed to comply with COPP - such as CyberLink's TV entertainment product PowerCinema and playback software PowerDVD - supports the protection of content according to the rules of the DVD Forum, the Blu-ray Disc Association, and Digital Transmission Licensing Administrator (DTLA).

CyberLink's implementation of COPP ensures the protection of content during output to an external display via a Digital Video Interface featuring High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (DVI-HDCP). With COPP support featured in CyberLink products, users will be able to watch commercial high-definition content - such as that available on Blu-ray discs and HD DVDs - through their LCD monitors, video projectors or HDTVs. Without this support users will be prevented from playing copy-protected content.

"The secure playback of high definition content on the PC is an extremely important issue for the creators and owners of digital content," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "This is why in addition to support for Blu-ray discs and HD DVDs, CyberLink is implementing COPP as a way of providing complete copy-protection solutions for our OEM customers."
