The Creative Dxr3 Decoder board features DynamicXtended ResolutionTM (Dxr3) picture enhancement technology for playback of high-definition video with sharper full-screen video PC images. Dxr3's advanced architecture elevates video quality to the next level. Key features include 6-tap filtering and scaling techniques virtually eliminating "combing" effects that may appear around moving objects to deliver sharp, clean video images. Creative's hardware-based DVD/Dolby decoder works on a Pentium 166 MHz PC, provides greater clarity over other MPEG-2 decoders and is more efficient than software-based DVD decoders.
"Creative's award-winning Dxr3 picture-enhancement technology creates superior visual quality on PCs," said John Troutman, vice president & general manager of Creative Labs, Malvern. "The Creative Dxr3 Decoder card will allow Compaq's commercial PC users an opportunity to experience state-of-the-art high definition video."
"Corporate customers are increasingly demanding the latest DVD technology and MPEG playback for applications such as video training," stated Naila Seif, Director of Product Marketing, Desktop PC Division at Compaq. "With the Dxr3 Decoder card and Compaq's 10X DVD-ROM or 6X Slimline DVD-ROM products, Compaq now provides a leading-edge DVD solution to meet our customers' evolving performance requirements. Compaq and Creative Labs bring together technological leadership for a total customer solution."
