ATI today unveiled CATALYST™ 3.2, a high-quality, reliable graphics software suite that includes unified driver and software applications to enable its RADEON™ family of graphics products. This latest release features ATI’s industry-recognized MULTIMEDIA CENTER 8.1 software suite.
MULTIMEDIA CENTER is a suite of applications that provide best-in-class players for the enhanced enjoyment of audio and video content on a PC. Accessed by an easy-to-use desktop toolbar, end users may select from a variety of multimedia players, optimized to use the installed hardware to produce high quality graphic display of TV, DVD, or captured video, or fully featured playback of CDs or captured audio. MULTIMEDIA CENTER provides advanced options such as Still Capture, Closed Caption functions, Dual Subtitle display while watching DVDs, and a specialized library application to manage multimedia files.

MULTIMEDIA CENTER 8.1 takes full advantage of computer hardware to provide superior video display and advanced capture functions to produce high quality recordings.”
Bergman added: “We’re delivering the most feature rich, integrated multimedia suite of applications by providing a consistent look and feel across many player devices designed for ease of use and entertainment enjoyment.”
In addition to the new capabilities for the RADEON-based desktop graphics products, CATALYST 3.2 with MULTIMEDIA CENTER 8.1 delivers advanced features to the many ALL-IN-WONDER® users -- from the current best-selling ALL-IN-WONDER® 9700 PRO to the long-standing ALL-IN-WONDER® RADEON™.
