“As the first and only media player to integrate PC, mobile device and cloud platforms into a seamless entertainment ecosystem, PowerDVD is designed to enhance how people experience their media,” said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. “In an increasingly media-rich and mobile-focused world, we’ve designed companion mobile apps and introduced our new CyberLink Cloud service to draw together all the content scattered across people’s digital lives so that they can enjoy their entertainment anywhere they want, on any device they choose.”

Building on its industry leadership, PowerDVD 14 is the first multimedia software to support the brand new High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC/H.265) format. This next-gen video format is designed for higher resolution entertainment delivery, enabling users to download better quality videos up to 50% faster than current formats allow.

In addition to these world firsts, PowerDVD 14 comes with more than 50 new and enhanced features, including expanded video and audio format support, more customization options, and the ability to watch enhanced YouTube videos offline. Highlighted new capabilities include:

  • Universal Media Player – PowerDVD supports all popular video, audio, photo and music formats from discs or files, including new H.265, AVCHD 2.0, lossless APE & ALAC audio, 4K and MKV. It also offers full support for the newest UltraViolet™ standards for premium video content streaming and download in the US and other markets where available.
  • Cloud Connected – Users of PowerDVD 14 Ultra will receive a year’s free subscription to 10GB of space on CyberLink Cloud, where they can store media, sync it across their PC and mobile devices and even share it with others.
  • Across Devices – New Power Media Player brings CyberLink’s award-winning multimedia technology to iPhones, iPad, Android and Windows 8 devices so users can stream and copy content seamlessly across connected devices on home networks.
  • Better YouTube – PowerDVD now features “pinning” functionality so users can save YouTube videos to watch offline. Pinned videos can be upscaled to HD or 3D, enhanced with lighting and noise reduction adjustments, and enjoyed using PowerDVD’s fast forward and slow-motion features. Use PowerDVD as your digital video recorder (DVR) for YouTube.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
