Officials with CyberLink Corp said that the center offers a free service for customers to prepare for the upcoming launch of Windows 8 by determining whether their current CyberLink software is compatible with Microsoft's (News - Alert) new operating system.
The company has decided to offer a patch to update the software for compatibility or offer an easy upgrade patch for customers to work with the new OS, if the system is not compatible.
"Technology should always be a complement to the creative process and multimedia enjoyment, and that is why we are making it easier than ever for customers to determine if their CyberLink software is optimized to run on the Windows 8 platform - while offering the best path to get there if it is not," said Alice H., CEO of CyberLink, in a statement.
"Our Windows 8 Update Center is designed to provide customers with an easy, effective way to take advantage of the Windows 8 platform, without the headaches and questions often associated with upgrading an entire technology ecosystem. We want our customers to embrace innovation, not be hassled by it, and we are excited about the possibilities the Windows 8 platform brings to digital media creation and entertainment," said Chang.
According to company officials, CyberLink has already announced that a number of its products are compatible with Windows 8 including: its PowerDVD 12 - the No.1 Blu-ray and media player, PowerDirector 11 - the world's fastest video editor, PhotoDirector 4 - a complete photo workflow solution, Media Suite 10 - a collection of 11 of CyberLink's industry-leading multimedia software offerings, YouCam 5 - a comprehensive webcam software, and many more.
Company officials pointed out that visitors to the Windows 8 Update Center will also be directed to free software patches for their CyberLink products that require compatibility updates.
Back in September, CyberLink Corp. had launched AudioDirector – a professional sound design solution that features everything needed to create effective audio for video projects. AudioDirector brings together CyberLink innovations in audio and expertise in video technology in a powerful yet easy-to-use software package.
