Corel to demonstrate WinDVD HD playback with Intel Clear Video Technology Corel Corporation has announced it will demonstrate its InterVideo WinDVD high-definition playback software with Intel Clear Video Technology during Computex Taipei this week. WinDVD is one of the most popular software applications for movie playback on PCs and using Intel's Clear Video Technology, it can deliver a rich HD playback experience.
Intel Clear Video Technology is included on all Intel G965, GM965, G33, and G35 Express chipset-based platforms. It is a combination of video processing hardware and software technologies that deliver enhanced high-definition video playback, sharper images, precise color control and an advanced display capability.

In addition to hardware decode acceleration, Intel Clear Video Technology uses Advanced Deinterlacing and ProcAmp color controls to deliver sharper, more vibrant video images. "Hardware decode acceleration support and advanced de-interlacing deliver stutter free playback with clearer, more detailed images by eliminating many of the jagged edges associated with interlaced content," explained Blaine Mathieu, Vice President and General Manager, Products and Strategy, Digital Media at Corel.

Mathieu continued: "And many of the same people who originally worked with Intel to ensure the highest level of compatibility and synergy between Intel’s processing hardware and WinDVD have continued to work with Intel on new technologies. As a result, we can be confident that when the new Intel 3 Series Chipsets with enhanced Intel Clear Video Technology are released this quarter, WinDVD customers will be among the first to enjoy even smoother, stutter free high-definition playback and sharp, colorful images."

"Intel is continuing to work with key software developers like Corel to enable the full benefits of Intel Clear Video Technology for digital home consumers," said Richard Malinowski, General Manager of Intel's Chipset Group. "Intel Clear Video Technology enables a rich new media experience for Intel 3 Series chipsets, featuring Intel's GMA 3100, X3100 or X3500 graphics by using new chipset capabilities to deliver smooth, stutter-free high-definition playback and sharp, colorful images."
