Microsoft to Share Video Technology

September 09, 2003|From Reuters

Microsoft Corp. said it would open the specifications for its video compression technology, which would allow other companies to make products based on its technology.

The world's largest software maker, which launched its latest video and audio standard, Windows Media 9 series, in January, said it submitted the standard to the society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers for review.

Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft competes with RealNetworks Inc. and Apple Computer Inc.'s QuickTime format in the market for video compression and streaming software.
