CPU and GPU Optimization IMPROVED
Video editing software PowerDirector, lets you take full advantage of multi-processing CPU and GPU computing technologies to deliver faster output of your videos. Our lab tests have shown significant performance gains in rendering HD video when combining PowerDirector with the latest hardware acceleration technologies from Intel, NVIDIA and AMD. This ensures you spend less time waiting for content to be produced and more time enjoying and sharing your projects.

NVIDIA® CUDA™
Optimized for NVIDIA® CUDA™
PowerDirector leverages NVIDIA CUDA technology to decode and encode HD video in the H.264 format significantly faster. This ensures you spend less time converting your files for your favorite player devices.

Optimized for HD Encoding to H.264
PowerDirector allows the output of H.264 content for playback on PSP, iPod, iPhone and PS3. A choice of video profiles, offering high quality and relatively small file sizes, is the perfect solution for creating content for today's media players.
