TAIPEI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), the world’s leading consumer multimedia software company, today kicked-off a new contest titled PowerDVD Showdown. Participants can show off innovative or unusual ways they use PowerDVD in their personal media setup, as well as offer suggestions for features they think are missing or would like to see in future versions of PowerDVD. First, second and third prizes will be awarded to winners in three categories—Grand Jury, Popularity, and Lucky Draw.
PowerDVD is the world’s foremost media player, with over 100 million copies shipped annually. Resourceful and innovative usage scenarios that spring from such a broad consumer base are a valuable resource for CyberLink developers. PowerDVD Showdown offers a chance for users worldwide to share their experience and expertise, and to help inspire future developments in media applications.
Entries showing creative uses of PowerDVD can be anything from an elaborate or themed home theater setup, to an unusual use of the software beyond typical media viewing. Suggestions for missing or futuristic features need not be conventional nor pay regard to technical feasibility. Submissions will be judged on creativity, relevance to the question, and fun factor.
People can view and vote for their favorite entries, with additional prizes awarded to the three submissions with the most votes received. All contestants, along with anyone who votes via Facebook or e-mail, will also be eligible to win prizes awarded in a lucky draw.
“We discovered that our customers’ real-life daily use of PowerDVD extended far beyond living rooms and desktop setups,” said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. “We want to encourage this kind of innovative and out-of-the-box thinking because the insights to be gained can help us better meet customer expectations in future versions of PowerDVD.”
PowerDVD Showdown Dates
The PowerDVD Showdown contest will accept submissions from August 5 through September 22, 2014, with winners being announced on October 1, 2014. There is no purchase necessary to enter—people who do not currently own a copy of PowerDVD can download a free trial version to participate. The contest is open to entrants worldwide.
