CinemaHD is a video conversion tool that lets you change the format, resolution and bitrate of videos so that they become suitable for being played on larger HD screens and on various other devices, including Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, Apple TV, DVD-players, MPEG-4-players, Home Theatre PCs and more.

Anyway, CinemaHD differs from a large majority of video converters available on the market. It doesn't focus on supporting a large number of output formats and profiles. Instead, it makes sure the quality of the output is indeed of the highest level. It's in fact one of the very few tools of its kind that are capable of both upscaling and downscaling the resolutions of videos with insignificant quality loss. It uses a powerful rescaling technique, the so-called ODU-technology (Object Detection Upscaling), which is able to resolve scaling errors and artifacts in a more effective manner than common methods like Spline or Lanczos.

CinemaHD can convert DVDs, single DVD-chapters, and videos of popular formats, including AVI, WMV, MP4, 3GP, VOB, MPG, MJPEG, etc. It also supports a couple of output profiles that makes it easy and fast to convert to files that are fully compatible with various devices.

To sum it all up, CinemaHD is a great video conversion tool that stands aside from the crowd of similar apps as it offers remarkable advantages and special capabilities.
