Windows 8 may be several months away from its final release, but more software companies are already pledging to support Microsoft's next operating system with Windows 8 version of their programs. At CES 2012 today, Cyberlink announced plans to offer three of its programs for Windows 8, all of which will be adapted to work on the Metro touch screen interface.
The software programs include PowerDVD Metro, the Windows 8 version of Cyberlink's popular DVD software player. The company also announced YouCam Metro, which will be used in Windows 8 for capturing video via desktop and notebook PC video cameras. The software can also be used to create "a wide range of fun effects with auto Face Tracking technology, and use CyberLink’s FaceMe face recognition to tag their photos."
Finally, Cyberlink announced PowerDirector Metro, which will offer Windows 8 users a easy way to edit videos and slide shows in the new operating system.
Cyberlink has not announced a release date or a price point for any of their Windows 8 Metro programs but are previewing all three software applications at their CES 2012 software suite at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel.
