CyberLink Technology
Hardware Acceleration

One of the key advantages CyberLink has over its competitors is the close relationship it holds with leading hardware processing manufacturers. With access to hardware technology long before it hits the market, CyberLink is able to design its software to ensure it is optimized for upcoming computing devices. The result? A smoother, faster multimedia experience.

Optimized for Leading Hardware Platforms

  • Optimization for Intel® Multi-Core Processors

    Optimized for all the latest Intel® Core™ processors, CyberLink products take advantage of in-built hardware acceleration. Intel Core technology enables CyberLink to improve overall performance including decoding, previewing and simultaneous conversion of multiple video file formats.

    Optimization for Intel's Hyper-Threading technology enhances CPU performance and efficiency. The CPU can process up to 12 threads at one time leveraging each core's ability to execute operations from 2 software threads simultaneously. Allowing the CPU to execute multiple software threads at the same time results in an overall boost in performance for CyberLink products when processing media.

  • GPGPU Support

    GPUs basically do one thing: speed up the processing of media. GPUs process data in parallel—using tons of cores to break stuff up and crunch it all at once. CyberLink codes its software to take full advantage of this.

    GPU-accelerated computing offers unprecedented application performance by offloading compute-intensive portions of the application to the GPU, while the remainder of the code still runs on the CPU. From a user's perspective, applications simply run significantly faster.

64-bit Performance

While 32-bit applications run quite happily on a 64-bit operating system, only true 64-bit programs take full advantage of it. They don't suffer the same memory restrictions, and application performance usually gets a small speed boost as a result. Many of CyberLink's software products are natively 64-bit to make viewing, previewing and editing media fast.

Optimization for ARM

The industry standard ARM® architecture is the most widely used 32-bit microprocessor architecture ever, with billions of products shipped: it is the hardware that powers most of the world's smartphones and tablets. As CyberLink branches out into the world of mobile apps, it has become an expert in optimizing software to run on ARM-based SOCs developing ARM-compatible software with unmatched performance, control, and productivity.

World's Fastest Video Rendering

TrueVelocity is the name given to the suite of technologies that improve previewing, effects rendering, format conversions, and outputting of video. TrueVelocity leverages both hardware and software technologies to accelerate video processing speeds. At the Architectural level, TrueVelocity is optimized for modern CPU and GPGPU and maximizes memory allocation and usage, while its Feature Optimization reduces latency and improves overall effectiveness. CyberLink consistently develops the fastest video rendering engines available, receiving plaudits from industry-leading publications like PC Magazine and PC Pro for innovations in this area.

  • OpenCL Support for Optimum Hardware Acceleration

    OpenCL is technology aimed at utilizing the full potential of system GPU and CPU power. Added to the TrueVelocity rendering engine, OpenCL harnesses the power of your system’s Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and applies it to video and photo effects, greatly improving the speed of the editing process.

  • Intelligent Video Rendering with SVRT

    Complex calculations done for you! Intelligent Smart Video Rendering Technology (SVRT) analyzes an entire project to assess the types of media and formats used, then selects the best output profile for optimal production speed.

    Once the output profile is chosen, your video is rendered in the shortest possible time using patented SVRT technology that recognizes and exclusively renders the portions of a movie clip that have been modified, and not the entire clip.

  • TrueVelocity Rapid Effect

    TrueVelocity Rapid Effect leverages GPGPU power to accelerate heavy computing tasks like effects rendering. Users can also preview these effects instantly on their video. Rapid Effect is optimized for nVidia Cuda, AMD Radeon and Fusion E-series & C-series Accelerated Processors.

Efficient File Format Conversion

  • Super Conversion Performance

    By channeling the full power of the CPU, CyberLink is able to offer HD video conversion at speeds up to 11x faster than other software solutions. Taking advantage of Intel's multi-threaded computing technologies means CyberLink software gives you more time to share and enjoy your HD videos, as you waste less time waiting while they're being converted.

NVIDIA and AMD Optimization

CyberLink software also supports NVIDIA® and AMD® technologies, delivering huge gains when transcoding high-definition video content. With up to 9X FASTER performance than standard software converters, CyberLink media converters leverage the power of the GPU to maximize performance and produce better results.

Fast Photo Export

  • 64-bit Performance and Open CL Support

    With standard photo processing software, working on RAW image files can at times be a frustratingly slow process, but not with CyberLink's improved JPG and RAW processing technology. With native 64-bit support and OpenCL integration, editing times are dramatically reduced.
