Do you prefer watching your video collection on your big television, instead of your portable player or computer monitor? Then Cinema HD is an application that will suit your needs. Cinema HD is a video converter designed to upscale or downscale video resolution so that it matches your native device resolution. Videos that have in your PC or other media player may not be in your native device resolution. For instance, your TV might have a native resolution of 720p (1080 x 720), and the video file is of a lower resolution 480p (854 x 480), then you can use Cinema HD to upscale your video to match your TV resolution.
Most modern TVs will accept various video resolutions as input and will automatically upscale or downscale the video resolution to match the native TV resolution, so what makes Cinema HD special? According to the developers, Cinema HD uses special ODU-technology (Object Detection Up scaling) to resolve scaling errors and scaling artifacts visibly and better than common methods, such as Spline and Lanczos.
The application has been recently updated to version 4 with a revamped interface. You can now drag and drop files, and use the standard file browser to add files for conversion. In addition, there are dedicated buttons to add DVDs or entire folders.
Added files are listed along with their name, duration, file format and resolution. The screening window on the right allows users to cut the duration of the video and preview the final clip prior to conversion. The default output directory is displayed below the file queue list and can be changed using the ellipsis button.
Output formats are listed alphabetically. Selecting a format provides additional options that allows users to change video bitrate, resolution, resize mode, resample algorithm, frame rate and audio settings.
The standout feature of Cinema HD is its ODU-technology that can retain the original quality of videos and resolve scaling errors and scaling artifacts when your resize them. Other than resizing videos, Cinema HD can be used as a standalone video converter, as the program supports conversion between several video formats including AVI, WMV, MP4, MPG (MPEG-1, MPEG-2) and WMV.
