PowerDVD 5 Deluxe is the latest evolution of the world acclaimed DVD software player that offers maximum video and audio playback entertainment on the PC. It comes with leading video and audio technologies to deliver the highest quality viewing and listening experience possible on the PC. As well, PowerDVD 5 Deluxe offers feature-rich navigation controls, for an interactive and tailored DVD movie viewing experience.
PowerDVD 5 Deluxe delivers key new technologies that are guaranteed to maintain PowerDVD's position as the world's best software DVD player. One such new feature is called CLEV (CyberLink Eagle Vision) and it automatically detects and analyzes the decoded video in order to evaluate the distribution of tones and make any necessary corrections to enhance the quality and sharpness. This is very important because many movies are too bright in some sections and too dark in others, so simply adjusting the brightness or darkness will not be effective. Also, some movie aspects can be lost due to detail loss prevalent in CRT/LCD monitors.
Another major enhancement is called CLPV (CyberLink Pano Vision), which delivers non-linear stretching of 4:3 movies played on widescreen display devices (or widescreen films on 4:3 displays) to reduce the distortion, seen in traditional linear stretching, and to give a more natural look! Special cropping techniques further improve the display of the picture. CLPV will enable users to view any movie they want in the correct aspect ratio for their display device, even if the original movie doesn't support it.
In addition, CyberLink has developed a proprietary audio technology, called CLMEI (CyberLink Multi-Channel Environment Impression). With this technology, users that have multi-speaker systems can playback 2 channel encoded audio tracks (such as MP3s or audio CDs) in multi-channel virtual surround.
Thus, with an already strong base of rich video and audio features & controls, PowerDVD 5 Deluxe is the obvious choice for anyone wanting to enjoy the highest-quality and most interactive DVD movie experience on the PC!
Top Customer Reviews
It has a wide variety of audio options that will please everyone. It can produce all kinds of stereo and surround effects in software that can give extra depth and zing to your music files. I don't really use these much as most of the effects are similar to ones that my soundcard will produce anyway, but if your soundcard doesn't already provide for them then they are a good bonus. The player supports Dolby Digital and DTS out of the box, so if you have a good speaker setup you are well catered for.
The player has some video effects, such as 'CLPV' for stretching or compressing the picture to fit your monitor, but to be honest the only one I use much is the 'CLEV' bit that sort of brightens up dark films so you can see what is going on far more clearly.
If your PC is up to or better than the minimum specifications this is a great package. Doesn't crash, plays all kinds of formats, loads of sound options, and has some really good video effects too.
It is easy to install and even easier to use and I would recommend it highly to anyone.
