Playback and control on iOS and Android devices is also possible through downloadable apps. These apps are free for PowerDVD 12 Ultra users but the Mobile v4 app for PowerDVD 12 Pro users costs $19.99. Through your home media server and a wireless network system, users can view their PowerDVD12 media library content on their Apple or Android device. PowerDVD 12 Ultra can also act as a Digital Media Server for your DLNA compatible TV and stream over the network. With PowerDVD's large file format compatibility, it provides superior DLNA server capabilities compared to other UPNP and DLNA servers. It also works the other way around and PCs running PowerDVD12 can access media from other devices within your network, including mobile devices running the Cyberlink app.
The content is "Smart converted" to best fit your target device so the media is always viewed as best as it could be, without sacrificing quality. If you are not using your mobile device to stream media from your PowerDVD 12 media server, you can also download the PowerDVD remote App, which enables iOS and Android devices to act as a remote control for PowerDVD.
For larger screens, PowerDVD 12 can enter into Cinema Mode, which slightly resembles Windows Media Center and simplifies the controls and navigations further. It takes a few seconds/minutes to transition from normal desktop mode to Cinema mode but users can use a media center remote control or the PowerDVD remote App to continue watching once the transition is completed.
