Play Blu-ray discs, DVDs, video files, music and photos and now take your entertainment experience beyond the PC, with new apps for your iPhone, iPad and Android devices
Taipei, Taiwan-April 21, 2011-CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW) today released PowerDVD 11, the latest version of the award-winning media playback software for PCs. A universal player, PowerDVD 11 is designed to be the only application you'll need to view Blu-ray and DVD movies, videos, photos and listen to music.
PowerDVD 11 introduces a multitude of new features including support for playback and transfer of content from the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android phones and slates to PC. In addition to smart device content, PowerDVD also facilitates the playback of remote media from sources such as DLNA servers and social networking sites like Facebook, Flickr and YouTube.
"While the PC remains central to the digital entertainment experience, portable devices and online content are playing increasingly important roles," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "PowerDVD 11 smoothes the flow between the PC, smart devices and online content so that users can get the most out of their digital entertainment anywhere."
Media playback wouldn't be complete without top quality audio, and PowerDVD 11 takes this to the next level with a premium 5.1-channel DTS audio experience across all three retail versions, as well as new Dolby Digital Plus support for MP4 files.
