NVIDIA Introduces PureVideo HD Technology
NVIDIA today unveiled PureVideo HD technology, which delivers HD DVD and Blu-ray movie playback on PCs. PureVideo HD combines hardware acceleration from an NVIDIA graphics processing unit, high definition movie player integration and HDCP feature support to make it easy for manufacturers and consumers to build powerhouse PCs that can play HD DVD or Blu-ray movies.
NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology provides:
- Hardware acceleration for decoding high-definition movies in the required formats (H.264, VC-1, and MPEG-2)
- Advanced post-processing features for HD movie playback at resolutions up to 1080p
- Support by HD movie player software companies that take advantage of PureVideo HD’s hardware acceleration and HDCP features.
A graphics card featuring PureVideo HD technology combined with an AACS HD disk drive, an HDCP-compliant display and a PureVideo-powered HD movie player from companies like CyberLink, InterVideo and Nero make it possible for consumers to enjoy superb HD movie playback on their PC.
System builders including Sony, Toshiba and Acer have adopted NVIDIA GeForce GPUs with PureVideo HD technology to power their first PCs capable of playing Blu-ray and HD DVD movies. HD movie software from Nero, CyberLink and InterVideo fully supports PureVideo HD technology. Graphics card manufacturers including MSI and ASUS will release video cards this summer supporting all of the features of NVIDIA PureVideo HD. In addition, NVIDIA is working closely with major optical disk drive manufacturers including Sony/NEC, Panasonic, Pioneer, Toshiba/Samsung, and Philips to test disk drive performance and maximize compatibility.
