News - CyberLink launches PowerDVD 17 with VR, HDR and Ultra HD Blu-ray support

There's no stopping CyberLink in their quest to keep PowerDVD at the forefront of PC content playback. It wasn't that long ago that they added support for Ultra HD Blu-ray, and now there's another update with adds support for VR. It's great to see them continuing to help make the HTPC the best solution for home media consumption.

News - CyberLink PowerDVD certified for Ultra HD Blu-ray playback

We haven't heard much from CyberLink about PowerDVD in a while, and I guess it made sense because there really wasn't much going on with the player, or space. That has changed however, with PowerDVD becoming the first PC player for Ultra HD Blu-ray disc. This is welcome news on two fronts. First, the HTPC as the best universal player dream is still alive, and second Ultra HD Blu-ray drives for the PC have to be coming to market soon.

News - CyberLink Shifts PowerDVD Towards Subscription Model

CyberLink PowerDVD Live

If you're a yearly CyberLink PowerDVD upgrader, they have just the thing for you - a subscription plan that runs $44.99/year, or 4x $14.99 if you prefer a quarterly payment schedule. For this persistent outlay you get the latest rev of PowerDVD and 10GB of online, er... Cloud, storage which, if you also have a Android or iOS device with PowerDVD mobile, could be a good way to maintain access to photos, music, and video files when you're not at home.

We had a chance to talk with CyberLink about their fresh new service, details and the full PR after the click.

News - CyberLink @ CES 2013

CyberLink CES 2013It's always interesting to stop by CyberLink's suite at CES, they have good demos and I like to know what they're working on in our space. Unfortunately there isn't a whole lot that we're allowed to talk about publicly (yet) so for now it's just some pictures (on the next page) of their "Metro" version of PowerDVD Mobile for Windows 8. The cool thing about this application is that it brings container/codec support not available out-of-the-box to W8 x86/RT tablets and touch PCs. The UI was responsive and made it easy to play with the entire media library through a single, consistent UI.

News - PowerDVD Taps the Power of Honeycomb

PowerDVD MobileCyberLink has always done a good job of at least trying to move its flagship PowerDVD product beyond simply being a media player by jumping on new disc formats and building a social experience via MoovieLive, but now CyberLink is adding some mobility to its repertoire. Their new PowerDVD Mobile looks like a pretty solid Android media player with some iOS design cues for good measure, but it also taps into the power of DNLA for sharing and streaming between Android tablets and to other devices.

Given that media management and playback has been the clunkiest aspect of the Android platform in my experience, a streamlined, integrated app could be a nice addition to an Android tablet. It doesn't hurt that we haven't seen a lot of developers targeting Honeycomb exclusively and really designing their Android apps specifically with tablets in mind. CyberLink's focus on streaming media also suggests the company is smartly preparing for the distributed computing future that we all seem to be hurtling toward.

It's known as PowerDVD Mobile for Android, but don't let the name fool you, because smartphones need not apply. The software allows users to stream media from PowerDVD on their computer directly to the tablet, share media between tablets, and stream media from the tablet to DLNA-certified TVs.
