S3 Graphics has announced the availability of Cyberlink PowerDVD 8 software for Blu-Ray playback on the Chrome 500/400 series of graphics processors.

The combination of S3 Graphics’ ChromotionHD 2.0 video engine and Cyberlink’s high-definition movie playback software gives users a higher level of theatre-quality HD video playback experience.

Immersive realism in single and dual-stream (PiP) Blu-ray playback can now be experienced on the latest desktop and mobile platforms.

Cyberlink PowerDVD 8 leverages S3 Graphics ChromotionHD technology to deliver high-quality HD decoding for the latest video Codecs, including H.264, VC-1, and MPEG2 for Blu-ray movies.

At the core of ChromotionHD 2.0 is a multifunctional and programmable video/audio engine that supports a selection of decoding and video/audio acceleration hardware to provide high-quality processing for HD and streaming digital video content.

Eight channels of high fidelity Dolby 7.1 digital surround sound brings life-like qualities to the user experience.

With full bitstream decoding, inverse transform, motion compensation, and in-loop deblocking, the S3 Graphics Chrome 400/500 Series GPUs offload HD intensive tasks from the CPU to the GPU, making the decode process more efficient while minimising total system power consumption.

The video engine is highly optimised with the decoding and post-processing display pipeline for simultaneous acceleration of single and multiple video streams for clear HD playback on high-resolution digital displays.
