Home-theater-like experience on your PC
Source: Microsoft, May 22, 2002.


Microsoft’s next version of Windows Media Player (currently in beta-testing) will support high-definition TV. Code-Named "Corona," the next generation player will deliver instant-on, always-on streaming and bringing home-theater-like audio and video quality to broadband PC users.


"In addition to other ‘Corona’ capabilities, Microsoft is showing how Windows Media supports DVD- and HDTV-quality programs at vastly reduced data rates, setting the stage for new networked and personal digital media storage capabilities and markets," said Richard Doherty, director of research at The Envisioneering Group.


"Sniper II," a Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment release is the first major film studio to use the new “Corona†technology to instantly transfer time-sensitive daily footage shot in Budapest, Hungary over the Internet to their Los Angeles-based production facility radically streamlining the review and approval process. – More info here!
