GPU Acceleration of H.264 video content using Adobe Flash
Player 10.1 Beta

This release of ATI Catalyst™ supports the new Hardware Acceleration features of
Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta for video encoded in the H.264 format. Adobe Flash Player
10.1 Beta introduces hardware-based H.264 video decoding to deliver smooth video
playback, reduce system resource utilization, and preserve battery life. Adobe Flash
Player 10.1 Beta is expected to be available for download from Adobe Labs
(labs.adobe.com) before the end of the year. This feature is supported on the ATI Radeon
HD 5800, ATI Radeon HD 5700 and ATI Radeon HD 4000 Series of products.

High Quality downscaling for video transcoding MSE

This release of ATI Catalyst™ includes an enhancement for the ATI Video converter for
users transcoding high quality interlaced content (1920x1080i @60i videos) down to
small resolution progressive content (320x240 @30p - iPod videos as an example), by
maintaining high visual quality when down-scaling by a significant amount and
converting interlaced video content to progressive.
