Many laptops and even some desktop PCs are nowadays equipped by the manufacturer with all kind of programs that are optimized for their platforms and meant to bring to the user some functionality that is not available anywhere else.
Among those applications, Dell MediaDirect aims to provide a great experience when it comes to playing movies or listening to music from various sources. With support for Blu-ray discs, DVDs and CDs, as well as for various kinds of photos, this tool is actually packed with technology.
In case you had in the past this application installed on a separate, hidden partition onto your system, now you can set it up just like any other program accessible from inside Windows.
An important mention that has to be made is that Dell MediaDirect can only be used on compatible systems. You will find out if yours is one such unit as soon as you start the installer because it performs a check to ensure the PC or laptop you are trying to put it in is supported.
At the core of this utility are many TrueTheater enhancements brought by CyberLink. Thus, users will be able to enjoy a really smooth playback of their high-definition movies, as well as of standard definition content on high resolution displays thanks to TrueTheater Motion and TrueTheater HD.
In case you have some worries about playing videos that are not in a 'wide' format, Dell MediaDirect is able to perform a fine stretching of the motion picture and adjust the ratio to an optimal value, without distorting visibly the movie.
There are also some technologies for adjusting the brightness, color and contrast in order to obtain the best possible results for a clear, detailed view. This is doubled by TrueTheater Surround, which can deliver an amazing sound experience through only two speakers or a pair of headphones.
