NVIDIA enables PureVideo HD technology

Posted on Monday, November 06 2006 @ 04:56:13 CET by

Last week NVIDIA released new ForceWare drivers with the company's PureVideo HD technology enabled:
PureVideo HD technology combines high-definition video decode acceleration and post-processing to deliver extraordinary picture clarity, smooth video, brilliant color, and precise image scaling for high definition movies, Nvidia said.

"This is a milestone in PC entertainment," said Scott Vouri, general manager of multimedia at Nvidia. "Nvidia is proud to be the first graphics processing company in the world to make it possible for consumers to build or upgrade a PC to play HD DVD and Blu-ray movies."

PureVideo HD technology is included with all 7-series Nvidia GeForce graphics cards. However, there are several requirements for building or upgrading a system to enjoy protected high-definition content. To enjoy the HD DVD or Blu-ray movie experience on a PC, consumers will need: A PCI Express graphics card with Nvidia GeForce 7 Series HDCP-capable GPU, secure HDCP CryptoROM, and 256MB graphics memory; WHQL-certified Nvidia ForceWare drivers that feature PureVideo HD technology; an optical disc drive (ODD) that supports Blu-ray or HD DVD movie playback; Blu-ray or HD DVD movie player software from CyberLink, InterVideo, or Nero; an HDCP-compliant display; and a dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM.
