Sofdec is a high-quality, feature-rich, multi-platform movie playback system. It leverages the full capabilities of a platform and allows your game to seamlessly mix movie playback and gameplay.

Easy encoding and previewing

Select the target platform, the source material and the compression ratio: a movie can be encoded and previewed in just a few clicks.

H.264 codec support

Support for the H.264 video codec allows high-quality and high-compression movie playback, without having to worry about the different platforms' specificities. CRI Middleware's proprietary audio codec can also be used to add multiple music and vocal tracks to a movie.

Special playback modes

Sofdec offers a versatile playback system that supports movies with transparency, subtitles and timing information. It allows for the seamless concatenation or simultaneous playback of the movies, as well as their display on a 3D surface.

Easy integration

Sofdec supports many platforms from consoles to handhelds and mobiles. The low-level functions can be customized by the game application, from the file loading to the sound output and the timer control. Part of the CRIWARE SDK, Sofdec can be easily integrated with your game middleware such as Unity or Unreal Engine.
