EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, March 20 /PRNewswire/ — NXP Software has joined forces with Corel Corporation to create the first ever PC video player that can deliver a near-HD viewing experience from standard DVD-type video content. There is no need for new content: consumers can enjoy near-HD quality playback from their existing DVD collection on their laptop or home cinema PC today.

It outperforms other video playback software by enhancing motion smoothness, resolution and sharpness for sparkling performance. Corel WinDVD 9 Plus is a significant upgrade from WinDVD 8 Platinum, the world's number one DVD and video playback software.

LifeVibes ALL2HD is a software-only solution, based on NXP Software's proven Trimension(TM) technology, which draws on years of experience in the TV domain. Designed to run on today's dual core processor PCs, ALL2HD uses patented TrimensionTM natural motion technology to determine the format of the source video and improve the quality through unique techniques for deinterlacing, SD to near-HD quality upscaling and sharpening and motion correction. The result is a high-definition resolution, sharper picture, with no motion judder. Viewing is more pleasurable and relaxing on the eye. Moreover, LifeVibes ALL2HD creates this experience in real time.

"HD is a fantastic advance in viewing," said Michiel van Genuchten, Sr. Director Emerging Business, NXP Software. "And with LifeVibes ALL2HD integrated in Corel WinDVD 9 Plus, consumers can enjoy their existing DVD content on their laptop or PC in razor-sharp near-HD quality today."

"We are pleased to integrate All2HD technology in WinDVD 9 Plus as it provides near-HD quality playback at a price almost anyone can afford," said Jeff Hastings, President and General Manager, Digital Media at Corel. "Now users can easily improve the playback quality of their existing standard-definition DVDs and videos to near-HD quality."

Corel WinDVD 9 Plus and WinDVD 9 Plus Blu-ray both employ Trimension All2HD upscaling technology to provide a near-HD playback experience when viewing standard-definition video and DVDs.
