CyberLink Reveals Innovative High Definition Cinema Experience— CyberLink TrueTheater™ Technology—at Computex 2008

Taipei, Taiwan----June 03, 2008----CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), innovative solution provider for the connected digital lifestyle, presented today at Computex 2008 its TrueTheater™ Technology, an advanced video solution for elevating video quality to HD performance on the PC.

"The emergence and growing of high-definition video in the market has raised consumers' demands and expectations towards the video experience," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "CyberLink, as the leader in digital audio and video solutions, now delivers its TrueTheater TM Technology for mainstream DVD videos, enabling a heightened movie experience, and giving users pure cinema sensations on their home PCs."

CyberLink TrueTheaterTM Technology is a suite of advanced video and audio technologies that ensure consistent high quality and a more enjoyable movie experience on the PC. Its playback enhancement features includes:

  • TrueTheater Motion utilizes a frame-rate conversion process to ensure smoother scene movements and more fluid screen action. With the technology, users can enjoy smooth video playback--even during rapid panning and zooming.

  • TrueTheater HD eliminates jagged edges from standard definition content played on high-resolution displays and removes distracting video artifacts. DVD content displayed on HD screens appears to have the detail of a higher-resolution image, making TrueTheater™ HD ideal for watching standard-resolution video on large displays and projectors.

  • TrueTheater Stretch, a non-linear stretching technique that adjusts the viewing ratio of displayed video with minimal distortion. It stretches the video image on the edges of the screen, leaving the center of the screen unaffected. With TrueTheater™ Stretch, users may watch any movie they like with the aspect ratio optimally suited to their display device—even if the original movie doesn't support it.

  • TrueTheater Lighting intelligently 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. In addition to automatic and manual settings, a choice of pre-set color profiles allows even easier adjustments.

  • TrueTheaterSurround employs CyberLink's channel-expansion technology (CLMEI™) to enable the delivery of surround-like sound from only two speakers, and to convert 2- to 6-channel audio to up to 8 channels of surround, allowing users to optimize audio playback by matching their equipment with their source content. TrueTheater™ Surround also simulates surround sound when multi-channel audio is played through headphones and stereo speakers, by creating a wider sound image.

In addition to TrueTheater™ Lighting, CyberLink's video noise reduction technology Magic Clean eliminates the effects of bad lighting from videos. By providing back light and white balance correction, Magic Clean enables magical improvements to hard-to-fix mistakes caused by poor lighting conditions, ensuring ever refined video quality.
