Hollywood Plus DVD Decoder Card - FrostyTech.com Hollywood Plus DVD Decoder Card
Thu Mar 15, 2001 | 9:43A| PermaLink
"Crave DVD playback that's as smooth as silk and delivered at break neck speeds with absolutely no slow down? Maybe you own a 64" Colour TV but the TV-Out on your video card just isn't up to scratch. In the past to get decent software DVD playback it required you to own at least a 600mhz processor and a decent graphics card. Even then, the occasional high intensity action scene would just crawl. The software decoders although vastly improved since the Hollywood Plus's initial release still produce artifacts and image abnormalities. If your processor cannot handle the DVD playback you could basically forget watching a movie with any degree of enjoyment. The abnormalities just get worse as the processor can't keep up. It sometimes even results in desynchronizing of the speech and movements. The Hollywood Plus promises to be the solution to these problems. It is a hardware solution for DVD decoding it takes the strain off your other computer components especially your CPU and gives smooth playback."
