InterVideo Launches WinDVD 7 With "Unprecedented" List of New High Definition and DVD Video/Audio Technologies
Posted Jun 16, 2005 Print Version     Page 1of 1

InterVideo, Inc. has announced WinDVD 7, the latest release of the software DVD player. Equipped with a brand new look and feel, WinDVD 7 is available in two versions. WinDVD 7 Gold is designed for movie lovers and business travelers who want an easy way to enjoy high-quality movie playback. For power users who want the latest audio/video technologies and the ability to tweak the controls for their personal preferences, InterVideo offers WinDVD 7 Platinum. With WinDVD 7 Platinum, InterVideo adds HDTV and Advanced Video Codec (AVC) specification support, also known as H.264 playback support. WinDVD 7 offers digital TV recorded content playback and supports channel navigation for HDTV transport stream recordings.

In addition, the latest DVD playback software adopts H.264, the next-generation DVD standard, MPEG-4 Part 10, making the state of the art video more accessible to more viewers. A universal player, the Platinum version can also be used to playback Real, QuickTime, WMV-HD (Windows Media Video High Definition) and MPEG-4 video files as well as InterActual-enhanced DVDs. In addition, the new WinDVD 7 will support the upcoming DivX multimedia technology to deliver high-quality interactive video files. Equipped for UPnP playback, WinDVD 7 can be used to play back content and easily allocate media files from other UPnP-licensed devices among CE devices and PCs within a UPnP Home Network.

Customizable controls, and the other dynamic player controls that have been added to WinDVD 7, help users maximize their entertainment experience. In addition to being able to adjust the sound balance of their speakers, they can choose from various viewing options including dock/un-dock, change placements of each sub-panel, or keep the WinDVD 7 viewing window on top of any other window. Also new with WinDVD 7 is the External Subtitle Control which not only checks for subtitles and loads them in the external subtitle file, it lets users adjust the placement, subtitle color and size. This is especially convenient for the new DivX media format for CE devices. Similar to the controls on a standard television set, there are no confusing settings with WinDVD 7.

WinDVD 7 also has a new Google Toolbar and Google Desktop Search application which provides fast, convenient access to obtaining information and managing multimedia files--not only through the Internet, but also on the desktop. With WinDVD 7, even the existing fun-to-use tools have been enhanced with new features. The new QuickClip 2, for capturing a video scene and saving it in a GIF format, now allows users to set the recorded length, image size, and customized frame encoding so files can be easily emailed to friends or even transferred to a mobile phone. The second-generation of Trimension DNM (Digital Natural Motion) technology featured in WinDVD 7 has also been enhanced. Widely recognized for delivering the smoothest motion playback, the technology now provides improved performance -- even in low power situations. With the WinDVD 7 Platinum version, users will have the opportunity to use the advanced viewing options to compare the improvement of using Trimension technology.

Like the previous version, WinDVD 7 features InterVideo's time-stretching and Mobile Technology. The Mobile Technology helps users extend the battery life and playback time of mobile PCs based on Intel Centrino processors. Time-stretching allows users to watch a 2-hour movie on a 1-hour and 30-minute flight by speeding up the playback without loss of audio or video quality.

WinDVD 7 can be used with desktop and laptop computers running Windows 98SE/2000/ME/XP. WinDVD 7 Gold, the standard consumer edition, and WinDVD 7 Platinum, InterVideo's high-end version, will be available at InterVideo's web site at on June 15 and will be at retail outlets around the world within the next few weeks. The suggested list prices are $49.95 for WinDVD 7 Gold and $69.95 WinDVD 7 Platinum. Upgrades for current licensed WinDVD users will also be available on the InterVideo web site.
