We're not sure if there's a huge demand for doing video editing on tablets and smartphones, although Google is already offering its own video editing utility with Android 3.x and many a smartphone has basic video editing programs. Now CyberLink wants a slice of the Android video editing space and has announced PowerDirector Mobile which the company has been demoing at CES.

We're not sure if there's a huge demand for doing video editing on tablets and smartphones, although Google is already offering its own video editing utility with Android 3.x and many a smartphone has basic video editing programs. Now CyberLink wants a slice of the Android video editing space and has announced PowerDirector Mobile which the company has been demoing at CES.

There seems to be a small caveat though, although the press release doesn't specifically state what hardware is supported, it does talk a lot about Nvidia's Tegra 3 SoC and how CyberLink has worked closely with Nvidia when PowerDirector Mobile was developed. The program is apparently optimized for the Tegra 3 chip, but it should seemingly work on most ARM processors, although we're fairly certain that there's a minimum hardware level.

PowerDirector Mobile will apparently be able to decode two 1080p video streams simultaneously in real-time, although we're not entirely sure what this is good for beyond previews, but the press release states that multiple HD video streams can be previewed in real-time, although only with a quad core chip. There are also options for theme based video editing with various effects and transitions on offer. Somewhat obvious the press release also states that video production will be quicker using a quad core processor, no surprise there. Sadly PowerDirector Mobile will only be available bundled with devices and won't make an appearance in the Android market.
