CyberLink Launches PowerDVD 22, Putting User Experience at the Core of Blu-Ray, DVD, 4K HDR, and YouTube Playback

The world’s no.1 multimedia player delivers brand new cutting-edge playback options, an enhanced audiovisual experience, and the most intuitive user interface to date.

Taipei, Taiwan— May 12, 2022—CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), announced today the release of PowerDVD 22, the latest version of its award-winning movie and media playback software which lets users enjoy an immersive experience for movies, music, and YouTube. The software plays movies in 8K, 4K HDR Blu-ray, and a wide range of media formats across any PC, laptop, TV, tablet or phone.

PowerDVD 22 builds on CyberLink’s pioneering media technology by offering exciting new features that offer users more control and customization options. Users can tailor their experience to match their preferences, for example, deeper colors, better lighting, and enhanced audio, such as high-fidelity 7.1 surround sound.

PowerDVD 22 includes a new keep pitch algorithm that maintains audio quality at the highest level during slow-speed playback, ideal for honing in on a video’s most intricate details without a distorted soundtrack. PowerDVD 22 optimizes playback between devices. New tools allow users to trim and extract any section of their media’s video or audio and convert them into smartphone-friendly formats. This includes MP4 for video and AAC or MP3 for audio. PowerDVD 22 also boasts faster transcode and uploading times, faster playback, and thumbnail generation on any part of the play bar for easy media skimming.

Enjoy YouTube like never before with PowerDVD 22. Next-generation TrueTheater® enhancements enrich YouTube videos with deeper colors, better lighting, and enhanced audio, no matter the original’s resolution – even 4K. Enjoy all-new matched playback speed controls, the ability to subscribe and unsubscribe within PowerDVD, and search capabilities by both channels and playlists.

“Recognized as the world’s number one movie and media player, PowerDVD has a long innovation history, pioneering multimedia features over and again, to the joy of our millions of users,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “In addition to new playback tuning options and an even friendlier user interface, we are happy to announce that PowerDVD 22 also adds exciting features to let users take complete control of their media, movies, and YouTube content experience.”

PowerDVD 22 provides an unparalleled playback experience. New additions include a specialized home function that lets users instantly access their currently played, recently played, and recently added media – all in one place. The program emphasizes precision controls, fast playback, and a lightning-quick response when streaming or watching YouTube.
