Cyberlink products support AVCHD format Cyberlink Corp. today support for the Advanced Video Codec High Definition Standard (AVCHD) for video playback and authoring. CyberLink has already incorporated AVCHD support in high-definition disc player software PowerDVD Ultra, and will launch support for disc authoring software PowerProducer mid-year. "The AVCHD format offers exceptional quality for the recording, storage and playback of high-definition video content," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink.
She continued: "With our expertise in developing leading playback and authoring products, CyberLink's support of the AVCHD format delivers greater flexibility for our hardware partners and even more choice for consumers." CyberLink PowerDVD Ultra has passed certification for the AVCHD format
from official tests conducted by the AVCHD Testing Center in Japan.

AVCHD is based on the MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) video format, enabling recording of high-definition 1080i and 720p video onto discs, providing faster seek times for accessing content compared with miniDVD, and offering higher compression requiring less storage space than MPEG-2. Currently Sony and Panasonic have camcorders supporting the AVCHD for recording, while Blu-ray Disc players support AVCHD playback.
