Microsoft and Nokia working on media compatible formats
Posted on 15-Feb-2005 07:36. | Tags Filed under: News.



Microsoft Corp. and Nokia announced they are working together to ensure media compatibility across platforms including Nokia handsets and Microsoft Windows XP-based PCs. The two companies also have agreed to a long-term collaboration on extended digital media format support.

This collaboration includes support on music-oriented Nokia handsets for Microsoft Windows Media Audio, Windows Media Digital Rights Management (DRM) 10 and Media Transfer Protocol (MTP), and support for Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) digital rights management and the MPEG Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) family of codecs in Windows Media Player via a plug-in. This dual-technology-stack support from both companies will further broaden the range of music enjoyment choices for consumers and delivery options for content owners and service providers, as well as ensure easy device connection and content flow between Nokia handsets and Windows XP-based PCs.

A new mobile music service launced by Nokia and Loudeye is based on the OMA DRM and MPEG AAC standards and enables a wireless operator's customers to search, listen, download and pay for music using an operator-branded music application on their mobile device. Windows Media Player is used for the PC component of the music solution, and wireless operators will be able to brand their music service when it is integrated into the Windows Media Player.

Starting immediately, operators can provide their customers access to and download of music using the mobile music solution from Nokia and Loudeye, allowing instant access to purchase content through Nokia handsets or Windows XP-based PCs. By supporting MTP on handsets, Nokia ensures that consumers have a simple and easy sync experience with their phones when transferring music to and from Windows XP-based PCs using Windows Media Player.
