Corel Announces InterVideo WinDVD BD/HD-DVD Playback/Navigation Support for NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series GPUs Corel has announced a retail version of InterVideo WinDVD 8 Platinum that leverages the NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology and GeForce 8 Series graphics processing units to deliver superb Blu-ray and HD DVD playback on desktop and notebook PCs. By combining WinDVD 8 with an NVIDIA GPU, consumers and OEMs have a proven solution for quickly and cost-effectively enhancing their PCs with amazing, theater-like high-definition playback. In addition to providing crystal-clear playback of interactive content on BD and HD DVD discs and drives, the universal player also supports DVD/video/audio in a wide range of formats, eliminating media compatibility issues. WinDVD leverages the power of NVIDIA PureVideo HD hardware acceleration capabilities to deliver highly efficient hardware decoding for playback of H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2 movies. Graphics cards and notebooks based on the latest GeForce 8600, GeForce 8500, and GeForce 8M Series GPUS offload the complex H.264 decoding process from the CPU. This frees the CPU to perform other tasks and reduces power consumption and extends battery life. And with WinDVD 8's support for NVIDIA's new second generation video processing technology, manufacturers can deliver a smooth frame-rate and superior image quality on even the most demanding titles. To deliver high quality and performance, the WinDVD H.264 codec technology utilizes highly advanced algorithms. One of the codec's key benefits is the ability to divide the decoding tasks among several hardware cores and hardware threads on both the CPU and the GPU. WinDVD's H.264 codec partitions the decoding tasks into multiple threads to maximize all the processing power of the latest dual-core and hyper-threading technologies, as well as the NVIDIA GPU's hardware acceleration.
