CyberLink Optimizes Video Technology for Windows 7

CyberLink will showcase a Multi-Touch optimized version of PowerCinema on Windows 7 at WinHEC 2008

Taipei, TaiwanNovember 5 , 2008—CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), an innovative solution provider for the connected digital lifestyle, announced today its close collaboration with Microsoft Corp. in two major areas:

DirectX Video Acceleration High Definition (DXVA-HD) technology optimization on CyberLink's leading Blu-ray player technology
CyberLink is working closely with Microsoft to ensure their Blu-ray player technology is compatible with Windows 7 and will support DXVA-HD optimized video graphics cards. The DXVA-HD optimization boosts performance by reworking the Blu-ray Disc plane composition pipeline. The technology allows video decoding for Blu-ray Discs to be hardware accelerated for a better viewing experience while reducing CPU power consumption, which results in longer movie playback time on PC battery life.

Multi-Touch Optimization on CyberLink PowerCinema
CyberLink has also been working closely with Microsoft to integrate the latest Windows 7 multi-touch technology into the user interface of PowerCinema touch edition. CyberLink PowerCinema optimized for multi-touch delivers sleek and versatile ways of viewing photo and video content at the fingertips. Users can smoothly move, rotate, and zoom in and out of photos and videos using their fingers to manipulate the objects on the display. The multi-touch optimized version of PowerCinema supports simultaneous playback of multiple video files under two viewing modes, fan and scatter.

CyberLink will join Microsoft today at the 2008 Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) in Los Angeles, California, to showcase the Multi-Touch optimized version of PowerCinema running on Windows 7.

"Innovative software plays a key role in the Windows experience," said Gary Schare, Director of Hardware Ecosystem Product Management at Microsoft Corp."In developing Windows 7 it is important to work with companies like CyberLink to provide customers with the tools and features they need to get the most out of their PC."

Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink Corp. said,"We are very excited to be working closely with Microsoft on the latest technology development on Windows 7. As PC's are quickly becoming entertainment centers where consumers can access a wide variety of personal and professional content, CyberLink will leverage the new features and technology available in Windows 7 to deliver the best possible entertainment experience on the PC."
