Default Play UHD Blu-ray on Your PC: PowerDVD Gets 4K Blu-Ray Certification

Software firm Cyberlink has announced that their popular PowerDVD Ultra multimedia player software has become the first software in the world to receive Ultra HD Blu-ray certification.

While actual playback support won't arrive until early 2017, the announcement of successful certification means that users with hardware that fits the requirements will soon be able to play 4K discs on their computers.

The hardware requirements for 4K playback will be considerable, as if users want to get the best out of 4K, they will need a new CPU, a compatible optical drive, a GPU with accelerated decoding and the most up-to-date HDMI output port, and an Ultra HD Premium compatible monitor that can handle Ultra HD Blu-ray's wider color gamut and HDR.

Commenting on the certification announcement, CyberLink CEO Dr. Jau Huang boasted about the company's proud history in delivering state-of-the-art home entertainment to PC users.

"With more than 300 million copies sold, PowerDVD is the definitive standard for media players, providing customers with the ultimate in home entertainment for the last 15 years," said Dr. Huang.

"Today’s Ultra HD Blu-ray certification means we can once again bring our customers the very latest in video and audio technology, ensuring they can enjoy the ultimate 4K experience."

The Ultra HD Blu-ray playback support will most likely arrive in the next major revision of the software (version 17), due for release in early 2017.

You can read more about the PowerDVD Ultra software, as well as find a link to download a trial version of the software, here.
