CyberLink PowerDVD has taken a great leap forward toward the leadership in the media players’ arena. Version 16 not only allows you to enjoy your favorite video files, Blu-ray and DVD discs and folders, audio files in various lossy and lossless formats, and even your photo collection on your PC, but it is also capable of displaying its magic on your 4K-enhanced TV set while transforming your mobile phone into a TV remote control.

Each new version of PowerDVD is a gift for its many devoted users and an amazing discovery for new ones.
PowerDVD 16 adds TV Mode to the plethora of functions and features already present in the previous versions. TV Mode allows you to connect your PC to your TV set and enjoy your favorite movies in cinema quality. The program’s support for Ultra HD 4K screens guarantees the best video and audio quality on your big screen, even when playing back a 120 or 240 fps 4K movie in slow motion. Its support for more lossless audio codecs (such as FLAC or ALAC) simply adds to an already amazing playback performance. Besides, if you happen to own a Roku, Chromecast, or Apple TV device, you can now send media to your TV screen wirelessly also using PowerDVD.

The existing TrueTheater enhancement technologies present in previous versions have also been improved with new options and media codecs. PowerDVD 16 is capable of enhancing the image quality of nearly any video file or disc, including Blu-ray movies and HD videos. Higher detailed picture quality, sharper images, and more vivid colors, together with a more dynamic surround sound, takes your playback experience to the next level. TrueTheater 3D can turn your 2D YouTube videos into 3D movies, while TrueTheater HD can transform any YouTube content into an HD video.

CyberLink PowerDVD 16 is a giant leap when it comes to audio playback quality. Its full support for DTS and Dolby technologies and the most popular lossless codecs provides the highest quality audio experience possible. When combined with its support for WASAPI, the seamless and smooth flow of audio data between PowerDVD and your audio device required to enjoy your music files and soundtracks to their full extent is absolutely guaranteed.

Improving a functionality that is already a reference in the media player’s domain is not an easy task. Somehow CyberLink always manages to push the bar a bit higher with every new version of PowerDVD, and version 16 is no exception. Its enhanced TrueTheater technologies together with the new TV Mode make this tool an excellent choice when searching for a reliable and top-notch quality media player for your video, audio, and image files and discs.

What's new in version 16.0

TV Mode — Bring the Movies Home!
Brand new TV Mode means you can enjoy a cinema-quality movie experience from the comfort of your sofa. Immerse yourself in a movie watching experience that's beyond anything you've enjoyed before. Control all the action with PowerDVD Remote, redesigned especially for new TV Mode. Sit back and relax while you browse and control your entertainment using your mobile phone.

What's new in version 15.0

TrueTheater® Color —intelligently analyzes video footage and optimizes hues and vibrancy, creating a true-to-life viewing experience.

TrueTheater® Sound —applies smart enhancements to four key areas simultaneously in order to create a richer, fuller audio environment:
- Bass boosting for effective recreation of that “cinema sound”
- Vocal range amplification, making speech crisper and more audible
- Reverb engagement to create a virtual surround sound effect
- Volume amplification to boost audio performance in environments with high levels of ambient noise such as aircrafts, trains, cars, offices, etc.

WASAPI—Exclusive Audio Environment
Typically found only in very high-end audio applications, Windows Audio Session API (WASAPI) manages the flow of lossless audio data (ALAC and FLAC, for example) between software and speakers.

A True Lossless Experience
Being able to assign the speakers exclusively to the audio playback of selected media also allows PowerDVD to provide optimum sampling rates for audio.

Rip Audio Clips from Movies
PowerDVD’s new “Video Scene Selector” feature enables the viewer to set “in” and “out” points at any section of a video file, so that a favorite scene can be quickly revisited. Additionally, users can rip an audio track from the selected section in any video file, allowing specific songs or entire soundtracks to be saved as AAC or MP3 files.

Broadest range of Format Support

Blu-ray and DVD ISO Playback
PowerDVD 15 now offers convenient direct playback of Blu-ray and DVD ISO files, either directly from the PC or via a network-connected drive. No additional mounting tools are required.

H.265 and H.264 Hardware Acceleration
New hardware acceleration support for Intel Haswell and NVIDIA Kepler processors enables flawless playback of all H.265 video files, without stutter and lag issues.

Player Personalization

Getting the Right Look & Feel
PowerDVD can be easily customized to meet specific needs. Media panel tabs can be hidden in order to streamline the interface. The interface can be further personalized with custom wallpapers.

PowerDVD Remembers Where You Left Off
PowerDVD helps users to save time and eliminate frustration by automatically restarting a show from the point it was

Smooth Playback of High Frame Rate Video

Smart Decoding & Rendering Technology
PowerDVD 15 introduces an intelligent playback algorithm designed specifically for this purpose. PowerDVD will analyze the refresh rate of the monitor the footage is to be played on, then intelligently decode and render only those portions of the source clip that can be handled by the monitor.

Enhanced 4K Playback

Overlay Mode—A Complete 4K Experience
Overlay rendering in PowerDVD offers a method of rendering video images to a monitor using a dedicated memory buffer inside hardware.

Battery Life Optimization
Both PowerDVD and its mobile companion app, Power Media Player, have been designed from the ground up to extend useful battery life well beyond what other players can offer.

Hardware Support Reduces Power Consumption
By incorporating the latest Intel® Clear Video HD, NVIDIA® PureVideo® and AMD UVD hardware decoding technologies into PowerDVD, CyberLink maximizes available CPU and GPU power to improve the performance of resource-intensive tasks such as video decoding/rendering, and to deliver a significantly better user experience.

Better YouTube and Vimeo Videos
Online video sites like YouTube and Vimeo are still growing in popularity. PowerDVD lets users enjoy online videos directly in the player. Using PowerDVD to watch online video has several key advantages:
- Improved viewing experience through TrueTheater® enhancements. Upscale videos to HD, improve the lighting and color, amplify the audio, and even watch in 3D
- Added functionality that YouTube and Vimeo sites lack, such as fast-forward and slow motion
- Pin (download) any YouTube video for offline viewing
- Rip audio from any YouTube video and save it as an MP3 or WAV file

Faster Startup

Express Entertainment
Instant Play is the name given to a set of start-up refinements based on data gleaned from PowerDVD’s Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP). Usage data from participants is analyzed to determine which features and settings are most popular and which are less used. Features that are non-essential to users can be bypassed at startup to reduce loading times. Instant Play also integrates BD-Live bypass technology to remove Blu-ray previews when not needed, as well as express loading for specific start-up pathways, e.g. launching a video by double-clicking the file in Windows Explorer.
