Microsoft Promotes WMV as Industry Standard
Microsoft announced yesterday that it will offer its Windows Media
Video (WMV) 9 video-compression technologies as an industry standard
to provide third parties with its superior video format at a lower
cost. The company says that yesterday it presented WMV 9, which
launched in January, to the Society of Motion Picture and Television
Engineers (SMPTE), an international standards body, for review. If
adopted as a standard, WMV 9 would be more accessible to third parties
because its specifications would be open.
