Does PowerDVD 16 support Ultra HD Blu-ray (UHD-BD)?

PowerDVD 16 doesn’t support Ultra HD Blu-ray (UHD-BD) disc playback yet. The requirements for PCs to play UHD-BD discs is much greater than for CE players, and currently CyberLink is still developing it for the PC ecosystem.

To support Ultra HD Blu-ray movie disc playback on the PC, several new technologies are required. These new technologies need to be incorporated into the software, optical drives (ODD), CPUs, and graphics processors, and are not all available on the market yet. CyberLink is dedicated to supporting UHD-BD and we’re working closely with our partners (ODD, CPU and graphics processor manufacturers) to deliver a solution. The Ultra HD Blu-ray movie playback feature will be incorporated in the new retail version of PowerDVD, which will be available in early 2017.

Although PowerDVD 16 doesn’t support Ultra HD Blu-ray disc playback. You can still enjoy 4K HEVC Ultra HD video by PowerDVD 16.

If there are more questions or suggestion, please don’t hesitate to let us know via CyberLink customer support.
