World's fastest media converter now supports the next-generation H.265 codec together with advanced technology that makes transferring files to mobile devices effortless, fast and delivers superior image quality
26 June 2014 - CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), the world's leading consumer multimedia software company, today launched the latest version of the top-selling media converter MediaEspresso. Offering the segment's largest collection of profiles for mobile and media devices, along with optimization for hardware acceleration technologies from Intel, AMD and Nvidia, MediaEspresso 7 is designed to not only make transferring files quick and hassle-free, but also to create the best-quality viewing experience on mobile devices.
MediaEspresso 7 also introduces support for next-generation HEVC (H.265) video. H.265 files provide super-high pixel fidelity for videos that take up only half the storage space of traditional files. MediaEspresso users can convert older files to H.265 to free-up more space on their PCs, or convert downloaded H.265 movies to formats supported by mobile devices so they can be easily enjoyed on-the-go.
"As the volume of digital entertainment consumed on mobile phones and tablets continues to grow, people are searching for straightforward ways to move content quickly between their various devices without worrying about file formats," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "The key to MediaEspresso's appeal is its unique ease-of-use. Smart Detect technology integrated into the software makes shifting files from PC to device effortless - a true "plug ‘n' play" experience."
MediaEspresso 7 is the latest in a series of recent CyberLink announcements about mobile apps and powerful, mobile-friendly applications-from "selfie" tools and full-fledged photo-editing products that can be run on smartphones and tablets to the company's flagship PowerDVD 14 media player.
