“The smartphone has become the primary video recording device of today’s users, especially millennials. CyberLink’s PowerDirector and ActionDirector are well-recognized video editing software among PC users, and we are excited to provide the same powerful, yet easy-to-use, experience to a new generation of creators using Android phones,” said Dr Jau Huang, Founder and CEO of Cyberlink. “It’s a great honor to receive ‘Editors’ Choice’ awards from Google for both of our video editing apps.
