CyberLink announced it's working on a new version of its PowerDirector software that will use the NVIDIA CUDA technology to accelerate HD video processing:
With NVIDIA CUDA technology, CyberLink PowerDirector delivers much faster video rendering performance and improved user experience in processing HD videos with advanced video effects such as Gaussian radial blur, pen ink, and others. CUDA technology is a programming environment based on the industry-standard C-language that enables developers to dramatically speed up applications by harnessing the massively parallel architecture of the GPU.
"Videos today are largely adopted by consumers in their daily lives to share, communicate, and express themselves to their friends or to the world," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink."“PowerDirector offers advanced, yet user-friendly, video editing capabilities that let consumers express themselves creatively. We are very pleased with the accelerated performance we're achieving using NVIDIA's CUDA technology, which will improve our user's experience by letting them produce video content faster and easier."
"Adding advanced video effects that simplify and enhance the creative experience requires a tremendous amount of raw processing power. The extreme computing capabilities of NVIDIA's CUDA-ready GeForce GPUs provide the perfect platform for innovative developers like CyberLink to improve how consumers creatively manage and share their growing libraries of video." said Michael Steele, General Manager, Visual Consumer Solutions at NVIDIA."Power Director 7 clearly makes video editing easier and more powerful. We're excited to help enable this for consumers and look forward to CyberLink's continued innovation with CUDA and GeForce processors for other exciting consumer video and imaging tools.
CyberLink PowerDirector with NVIDIA CUDA support will be available in Q4 2008, and CyberLink says they will also use CUDA on other CyberLink applications.
