What are major differences between PowerDVD 9/9.5 and previous versions of PowerDVD?

PowerDVD 9/9.5 has four new major functions:
TrueTheater video enhancement technologies:
TrueTheater HD option that up scales the original video to a higher resolution version, which is sharper and artifact-free. It is capable of up sampling 480p video up to 1080p.
TrueTheater Motion feature that enables frame rate up sampling, from 24 fps up to 60 fps, to make panning scenes, particularly in action movies, play more smoothly.

PowerDVD Cinema playback mode (with full remote control support):
The Cinema mode is provided to users who wish to view movies at a distance (10 foot) with a remote control. Cinema mode has more simplified CyberLink PowerDVD features than the Classic mode.

PowerDVD MCE plug-in (seamless integration with Windows Media Center):
PowerDVD 9/9.5 also plugs directly in to Windows Media Center*, for those users who have it installed on their computers. The PowerDVD 9/9.5 shortcut is found in the TV + Movies section of Windows Media Center.

Supports high-definition audio output:
PowerDVD 9/9.5 is capable of high-definition audio decoding. In the past, due to the industries lack of common secure audio path technology, all protected audio content (eg. DVD-Audio, Blu-ray Disc) will force audio to be down-sampled to 48 kHz/16 bit output resolution. CyberLink PowerDVD 9/9.5 now supports HDMI 1.3, which can transport lossless audio streams with 192 kHz/24 bit output resolution for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master audio formats for Blu-ray Disc content.
