May 8, 2001----Taipei, Taiwan----CyberLink, the leading developer of digital video and multimedia streaming software, is proud to announce that PowerDVD is the first and only software DVD player on the market to pass the tests of Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) for Windows XP under the Motion Video Category. This follows the recent announcement of another WHQL first, last month's major achievement of being the first software DVD player to receive WHQL certification for DxVA certification under the Motion Video category. By now being the first to pass all the tests for WindowsXP, PowerDVD reflects CyberLink's dedication to producing software of the highest quality and standard. As well, this also illustrates the continuing recognition of PowerDVD as the best solution for software DVD playback on the PC.
"Once again, we have proven our leading position in the DVD market by ensuring PowerDVD's excellent quality and compatibility to meet tomorrow's needs.", says Johnny Tseng Assistant V.P., R&D Dept. of CyberLink.

According to Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink, "The entire CyberLink worldwide team is proud of what we have accomplished and for the recognition that has been bestowed upon PowerDVD. We have endeavored to live up to our reputation of being the World's Best Software DVD Player and will continue to work earnestly to improve our core technology in our fast growing suite of Digital Video Applications."

With the Microsoft WHQL WindowsXP Compatibility Logo, OEM manufacturers will receive full confidence that PowerDVD has met the necessary standard requirements by Microsoft and is fully compatible with their Windows XP Operating Systems and drivers. Currently, other products that do not have this certification may give no assurance that they are fully compatible with WinXP beta, as well as Windows XP and subsequent versions.
