Leadtek’s WinFast PxVC1100 - The Multimedia World’s hottest sale!

Taipei, Taiwan, Dec 31th, 2008
Leadtek Research Inc., one of the world's leading makers of multimedia products, today announces the official launch of the English version of its latest and the most-compact-ever high performance transcoding card - the WinFast® PxVC1100.

Since its unveiling on the TOSHIBA booth at CEATEC JAPAN 2008, the world's most complete exhibition of cutting-edge information and electronics technologies, WinFast® PxVC1100 has taken the Japanese market by storm and is literally flying off retail shelves in that country.  The English edition of the product debuts in an altogether different livery from the version that has already sold out in Japan.

Wholly developed by Leaktek, WinFast® PxVC1100, is an all brand-new generation of MPEG4-AVC/H.264 transcoding card with a Toshiba high-performance stream processor SpursEngineTM The latter integrates four Synergistic Processing Element (SPE) cores based on the "Cell Broadband EngineTM” intelligence power protection, a one-slot adaptive cooling FAN sink, and PCI-Express Low profile form factor.

Based on WinFast® PxVC1100’s powerful parallel coding function, users are able to extend its core program application from basic visual effects to advanced system development in many professional fields. These include multiprocessor operating, data mining, parallel coding, multimedia produce, medical application, communication and monitor system operation, financial engineering management, high-speed calculation, and optimized data analysis – and this in many disciplines such as science, material science, medicine, architecture and construction.

n the two months since its Japan release stocks of WinFast® PxVC1100 have completely sold out with rapturous comments from Japanese media and consumers on its overall performance “and best ever user experience.”
Intent on making a similar market impact in Taiwan, Leadtek is offering both the advanced Software Development Kit (SDK) and two eye catching sales packages that should meet the demands of a wide cross section of customers.  The SDK enables users to create their own customized software with lots of useful bundled programs.
The economy pack includes WinFast® PxVC1100, InterVideo WinDVD 8, Ulead DVD MovieFactory 5, and Ulead VideoStudio 11 Plus.

The deluxe pack includes all the contents of the economy package together with a three-day training course from the OEM with the following topics.

    1. Data Transmission and Synchronization between Host and SpursEngine
    2. SpursEngine Optimization and SIMD Programming
    3. SpursEngine 1080i Full HD H.264 and MPEG2 Video Codec Middleware。

If you’re ready for the wonderful world of HD then now’s the time to join thousands of users who are already following the heart throbbing trend of Leadtek’s WinFast® PxVC1100.
