CYBERLINK MEDIASHOW ESPRESSO USES NVIDIA GPUS AND CUDA TECHNOLOGY FOR FASTER VIDEO ENCODING

SANTA CLARA, CA — MAY 5, 2009 — NVIDIA today announced that Cyberlink’s MediaShow Espresso is accelerated by graphics processing unit (GPU) technology from NVIDIA. MediaShow Espresso is an easy to use software application that converts digital video for playback on different portable devices, such as the iPod, iPhone, or PSP at very high speeds with excellent quality.

By accessing the massively parallel processing power of the NVIDIA CUDA computing architecture built inside all currently shipping NVIDIA GPUs, MediaShow Espresso speeds up video encoding. Cyberlink’s support for NVIDIA CUDA means the required processing can be performed on the GPU, allowing MediaShow Espresso to convert videos in a fraction of the usual time and so dramatically reducing the length of time convert an HD video for use on a portable media player.

CUDA is NVIDIA’s GPU computing architecture for massively parallel processing. The first CUDA GPU was introduced in November 2006 with the GeForce® 8800 and has been in every new GPU since, with more than 118 million CUDA-enabled GPUs in the market today.
