2. Software Overview

PowerDVD is an advanced movie and media player used for playing Ultra HD 4K, Blu-ray, DVD, and 3D movies. It also provides media management tools, which include searching, browsing, and online sharing features. The application is available in Standard, Ultra, and 365 (subscription) editions.

PowerDVD supports Ultra HD 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD videos, and many other multimedia formats, such as H.264, MP4, MOV, MKV, FLV, VOB, AVI, MP3, AAC, JPEG, and PNG. The user interface provides options for playing movies, video, and music files on your PC or on your TV through the application's built-in TV Mode.

TrueTheater HD and 3D technologies can upscale video, convert 2D video to 3D, and adjust the depth of 3D effects. The program can detect a 4K video file and 4K monitor and deliver lag-free playback. TrueTheater Stabilizer removes jitter from home videos during playback. PowerDVD also includes audio enhancement technologies such as TrueTheater Noise Reduction, which removes unwanted audio noise, and TrueTheater Surround, which converts an audio signal into surround sound.

CyberLink PowerDVD is a great media player for a home theater environment, as well as mobile devices through the PowerPlayer app via the CyberLink Cloud service.
