What is SimHD

As time goes by, video is getting to be more and more clear, crisp, and bright in HD Televisions and HD monitors. Although what people want to watch varies from time to time, the needs for high-definition video quality never change at all times. With ArcSoft SimHD technology, you can simply turn your standard-definition video to near high-definition quality in no time. The retail version of ArcSoft SimHD, a plug-in for ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre, is now available for end users.

SimHD is ArcSoft's upscaling technology, which brings low-resolution videos and DVDs, even YouTube videos, up to near high-resolution quality while also offering dynamic lighting, denoise and smoothness enhancements, offering you a sharper and more vivid picture in real-time. SimHD, embedded in the ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre, performs this video upscaling work by utilizing the NVIDIA® CUDATM parallel computing architecture to solve complex calculations in a fraction of the time required on a CPU.
