Microsoft to Support Philips Nexperia Chip

Philips plans to support Microsoft Windows Media Audio and Video and Windows Media Digital Rights Management 10 (DRM) technology in its Nexperia family of multimedia semiconductors for use in digital media receivers, personal video recorders, portable audio players, IP set-top boxes and video phones. Support of Windows Media in Nexperia solutions for in-car entertainment as well as next-generation digital TV systems will follow later in the year.

For consumer products, Philips will add Windows Media to currently supported formats in its Mobile Infotainment and Streamium products this month. With this addition, Philips’ customers around the globe will have fast and easy access — in the home or on the go — to a broad range of audio and video content. Windows Media Audio and Video and Windows Media DRM power more online digital music and video services worldwide than any other technology, with more than 150 services delivering popular music, movies and television programming. In addition, Philips announced that it is committed to obtaining PlaysForSure verification for these products, which will ensure customers can access a broad choice of downloadable or subscription content on their devices.
