Microsoft Corp. today launched its Microsoft Mediaroom, the latest update that also changes the name of its Internet Protocol television (IPTV) software platform.
It features several new multimedia capabilities, including in-home personal music and photo sharing, dynamic MultiView (multiple picture-in-picture) capabilities, Multimedia Application Environment for development of interactive services and advanced applications, and digital terrestrial television (DTT) support.
Microsoft says renaming its IPTV platform as Microsoft Mediaroom better reflects the broader set of new connected entertainment experiences being made possible today and in the future.
The Microsoft Mediaroom platform will be on display in Microsoft Booth 3531 at NXTcomm, the new industry venue featuring the business and technology of communications, taking place June 19â€“21, 2007, at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
