NXP Software and Dolby Laboratories Inc. collaboration brings iPhone, iPad and iPod users cinema-quality movie experiences
NXP Software today announced a new release of its highly popular LifeVibes CineXPlayer at Apps World Europe. CineXPlayer 2.5 is the first video player for iPad, iPhone and iPod devices to support Dolby® Digital Plus. Available via the Apple App Store, CineXPlayer 2.5 delivers a living-room movie experience almost anywhere.
"NXP Software aims to help people enjoy life to the full by delivering outstanding mobile multimedia experiences. That vision has seen CineXPlayer become a top video player in Apple's App Store. Many of CineXPlayer's fans asked us to add true multi-channel sound and, working with Dolby Labs, that's exactly what we've done. It brings the digital audio quality people know from the home theater to mobile devices," said Peter Van de Berg, Marketing Director, NXP Software.
Dolby Digital Plus improves the quality of sound from content creation to playback. It delivers an optimal audio experience across a range of portable devices, whether listening through headphones or built-in speakers, or sending an HD entertainment experience with discrete multichannel audio to the home theater from the smartphone in your pocket.
"Dolby Digital Plus in NXP Software's CineXPlayer allows for more high-quality entertainment across screens," said John Couling, Vice President, Electronic Media, Dolby Laboratories. "Dolby is committed to bringing a cinema-quality experience to the home on a wide range of services, devices and applications."
CineXPlayer lets end-users transfer Xvid movies instantly on to their iPad, iPhone or iPod without file conversion. And as it is possible to save full movie files to the CineXPlayer app, users can watch at home or on the go, even if there is no Internet connection available (e.g. on trains, planes, and so on).
