Slick and smooth playback
Easy to use with mouse or hotkeys
CyberLink PowerDVD is generally very easy to use. Most of the program's functions can be performed with the mouse or their corresponding keyboard hotkey, and there's also a comprehensive context menu that gives you access to even more options by just right-clicking anywhere on the image.
Sound in CyberLink PowerDVD can be configured in different ways, depending on your hardware (from headphones to a full stereo surround system) in order to obtain the best possible sound quality. TrueTheater Noise Reduction also makes sure you get the clearest sound possible.
A powerful solution for DVD playback
CyberLink PowerDVD is a perfect solution for your all DVD playing needs: a powerful video player with interesting features, yet easy enough for everyone to use.
CyberLink PowerDVD has all the extra functionality you would expect from a high-quality player. It features a sleek interface you can customize with skins and includes direct access to MoovieLive, an online movie database that helps you categorize all the titles in your collection and access movie reviews online.
Regarding playback, the movie flows very smoothly even when you move CyberLink PowerDVD's window around or play it in fullscreen mode. Image quality has been improved thanks to the special TrueTheater filters which provide pixel-perfect images and make the most out of your HD visual equipment. CyberLink PowerDVD includes the innovative TrueTheater 3D, a special filter that can transform your DVDs into 3D movies like the ones in cinemas everywhere. The 3D effect obviously only works if you have a 3D-capable display.
CyberLink PowerDVD also lets you change playing speed, take snapshots of your favorite scenes in the movie and have a particular scene or sentence repeated over and over again with the "Say it again" and the "AB Repeat" tools. This may be useful for foreign language students who watch movies to improve their listening skills. Other interesting features in CyberLink PowerDVD are the possibility to share video files on YouTube and support for video bookmarks.
