PowerDVD is one of the most sought-after media players by internet users. This is owing to the fact that it offers specific functions for playing video in high definition, such as the application of TrueTheater to image and sound.

Maximum Quality

PowerDVD is able to make the most of films and series in physical formats such as DVD and Blu-Ray. Although it also supports more conventional digital formats (AVI and MP4, to give two examples), the idea of PowerDVD is to get the best from the computer’s resources when accessing all the data included in a physical disk, especially when it comes to quality. Likewise, it’s compatible with songs and images; the program is able to produce a photographic presentation in seconds.

When of the most important parts of PowerDVD is TrueTheater, a system that helps improve the color, sharpness, and fluidity of the images, the body of the sound, and so on. PowerDVD’s aim is to reproduce the quality of a home theater in your computer, and the truth is that it doesn’t let you down.

Remote Control

PowerDVD is always at the forefront of new technology, especially in respect to hardware. One of the most interesting aspects is its compatibility with Roku, Chromecast, and Apple TV—three devices that let you wirelessly connect the computer to the TV. In this way, you can continue to use PowerDVD´s functions in all videos, but screen them on a much bigger screen.

If that wasn’t enough, you can manage and control PowerDVD from an iPhone, Android, or iPad, simply using the PowerDVD remote function. No other video player offers quite so many features in just one program. The only downside is that it’s a pretty large program; it takes a long time to open and has to load an excessive amount of data. What it lacks in agility, however, it makes up for in playback—especially when it comes to Blu-Ray.
