PowerDirector 5 Comes to PSP
Product: PowerDirector 5
CyberLink Corp., a world leader and pioneer in providing integrated solutions for the Digital Home, today announced that CyberLink PowerDirector 5 enables output of video files using the Sony PSP-compliant MPEG-4 SP format.

With over 10 million Sony PSP units sold worldwide, CyberLink has licensed Sony’s Memory Stick Video Format for the production of MPEG-4 SP video for playback on the Sony PSP. Support for MPEG-4 SP and MPEG-4 AVC, via optional plug-in packs, allows the creation of high-quality, compressed video files with low bit-rates. Both formats are designed for new mobile devices where storage is limited.

High-definition wide-screen TVs promise to revolutionize the home entertainment experience, with better image quality and cinema-like screens. PowerDirector 5’s ability to import, edit, and output high definition video, and support for HDV camcorders and native 16:9 aspect ratios, turns home-video editors into Hollywood directors, letting them create videos for playback on the latest TVs in 1080i or 720p resolution.

PowerDirector 5 also allows burning to a complete range of DVD and CD media via a CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, or DVD+R/RW burner. Users can burn their high-definition wide-screen movies to a DVD, play it on their home DVD player and view in a 16:9 native aspect ratio on their wide-screen HDTV.

“CyberLink PowerDirector 5 takes consumer video editing to the next level with an incredible combination of format upgrades and user-centric improvements,” said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. “With the increasing popularity of portable devices and the growth in sales of high-definition video cameras, users now have an easy way to create stunning movies that are designed for playing on HD TVs or smaller PSP-like devices.”
