Interviewing CyberLink about HTPC and HD
We recently caught up with our friends at the happy and fun CyberLink HQ here in Taipei, Taiwan and asked them a range of questions addressing our concerns and also those of which we have seen posted in many audio visual forums around the world.
We say "happy and fun" as it's quite literally the most vibrant office we have visited, ever. Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink, actually encourages staff members to decorate the office with movie posters, drawings and painting on walls. Heck, even bring along your toys, figurines and comics from home - that's cool, too!
CyberLink is a Taiwanese company who made it big not only by getting numerous awards for a happy, hard working and ever changing workplace, but by making software enabling digital multimedia on computers. They have a range of different software for movie playback, recording, authoring and so on.
CyberLink's highlight product and what is known by most is "PowerDVD". Just recently they launched the latest version, PowerDVD 8 - including the more beefy Deluxe and Ultra versions. Each supports playback of HD video from Blu-ray and AVCHD discs as well as standard definition DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, DVD-VR, DVD+VR and VCD, SVCD, Audio CD. It's going to be the focus of our interview today.
Let the Interview commence!
