Cyberlink Shows-Off Blu-ray ''Upscaling''

First announced for DVD’s last year, Cyberlink is expanding its real-time 2D to 3D movie upscaling to support 2D Blu-ray movies. This was the most visually-impressive part of a display that included its latest optimizations for new CPU architecture discussed earlier this week in our Sandy Bridge coverage.

Less astonishing but more technically difficult is 2D to 3D photo conversion, for which an additional Cyberlink application was on display.

  • First of all, I must apologise for being negative, but PowerDVD REALLY annoys the living crap out of me, what with it's constant nagging pop-ups to upgrade, stopping Blu-ray playback from a folder, increased faffing when trying to play a backed up dvd etc. I own four paid for licences and I REALLY don't know why.

    Don't even mention the updates... why call them updates when you're basically downloading the entire package again!

    More fool me for parting with my money.

    P.s. new features look great

  • These players that people actually pay for are just as pointless as the "Security Suites" that are still carrying a price-tag. VLC, KMPlayer, and MPC-HC are just some of the fantastic options out there which, in many ways, are superior to anything that you have to pay for out there. These free players have come a very long way in the last few years and are not only easy and safe, but offer superior picture and audio decoding, take full advantage of modern (and hot) technologies (CUDA, DXVA, DTS-HD, etc) that are not even correctly (or at all) deployed in many of those expensive, bloated and downright broken suites that cost around $100! These rip-off players are all flash and no substance... don't believe me? Just try one of the free ones and you'll understand right away what I'm talking about.
