CyberLink’s TrueTheater™ Technology is a suite of advanced video and audio technologies that upgrades the total media experience on the PC. Its implementation within CyberLink’s movie playback and video creation applications provides a range of features that allow consumers to customize their creative projects and entertainment experience.

  • TrueTheater HD - Relive DVDs in High-Definition!

    TrueTheater HD gives standard definition DVD images the look and feel of true high-definition via resolution upscaling from 480 pixels to 1080 pixels, eliminating jagged edges and distracting video artifacts during playback of standard content on high-resolution displays.

    TrueTheater HD is the ideal solution for watching standard DVD movies with low resolution content in full-screen sizes on large displays using PowerDVD, the best Blu-ray/DVD playback software

  • TrueTheaterTM Motion - Enjoy Smoother Video Playback

    TrueTheater Motion up-converts the frame-rate of video to 72 frames per second (fps), for smoother-looking playback and fluid, graceful action sequences.

  • TrueTheaterTM Color

    CyberLink's unique TrueTheater enhancements improve the quality of even Blu-ray and hi-definition video, especially for playback on a big-screen TV. TrueTheater Color intelligently analyzes video footage and optimizes hues and vibrancy, creating a true-to-life viewing experience, without over-saturating footage to damage skin tone and appearance.

  • TrueTheaterTM HDR

    Unique technology that enhances regular video shot from Standard Dynamic Range to High Dynamic Range (HDR) for better viewing on modern Ultra HD 4K HDR displays.


  • High-accuracy Motion Tracking

    CyberLink’s video editing technology is capable of incredibly accurate motion tracking for both standard and equirectangular 360º videos. Text, PiP objects or special effects can be precisely applied to objects and people that are tracked through a video (either a segment or a whole clip).

  • Video Stabilization

    Our advanced video analysis algorithm has made stabilizing regular and 360º video a breeze. Intelligent frame-by-frame analysis helps to automatically correct shaky video shot with regular cameras. For 360º videos, setting how much of the video to analyze and smooth out are the only inputs required for our smart stabilization algorithm which meticulously straightens and deshakes 360º video footage.


CyberLink products boast the most extensive video codec support of any software in the playback and editing categories. A video codec is an algorithm by which a video stream is encoded. CyberLink playback and editing products support a huge number of video codecs — two of the most important being H.264 (AVC) and H.265 (HEVC).

  • Advanced Video Coding (H.264)

    H.264 aims to provide a single codec for low-bandwidth, low-CPU devices (cell phones); high-bandwidth, high-CPU devices (modern desktop computers); and everything in between. To accomplish this, the H.264 standard is split into “profiles,” each defining a set of optional features that trade complexity for file size. Higher profiles use more optional features, offer better visual quality at smaller file sizes, take longer to encode, and require more CPU power to decode in real-time.

  • High Efficiency Video Coding (H.265)

    The successor to H.264 is H.265 (HEVC). HEVC is said to double the data compression ratio compared to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC at the same level of video quality. It can alternatively be used to provide substantially improved video quality at the same bit rate. It can support 8K UHD and resolutions up to 8192x4320. CyberLink was one of the first software vendors to support H.265 files.

  • Advanced Audio Coding (AAC)

    AAC is the default or standard audio format for YouTube, iPhone, iPod, iPad, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo 3DS, iTunes, DivX Plus Web Player and PlayStation 3. It is supported on PlayStation Vita, Wii (with the Photo Channel 1.1 update installed), Sony Walkman MP3 series and later, Sony Ericsson; Nokia, Android, BlackBerry, and webOS-based mobile phones, with the use of a converter. AAC also continues to enjoy increasing adoption by manufacturers of in-dash car audio systems.

  • Free Lossless Audio Coding (FLAC)

    FLAC is an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality.

    FLAC stands out as the fastest and most widely supported lossless audio codec, and the only one that is non-proprietary. Digital audio compressed by FLAC's algorithm can typically be reduced to 50 - 60% of its original size and decompressed to an identical copy of the original audio data.


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.
