CinemaNow to Offer Consumers Access to Personal Media8 Oct, 2009 By: Chris Tribbey
Roxio CinemaNow has unveiled plans to give its customers access to their personal digital media on Internet-connected TVs, set-top boxes and mobile devices.
Dubbed Roxio CinemaNow Digital Locker will allow consumers to access and create personal video compilations and photo slideshows on an online service.
“Consumers not only want to view the latest movies on their HDTVs, they also want to see slideshows and videos of their vacations, family gatherings and other personal events,” said Dave Habiger, president and CEO of CinemaNow parent Sonic Solutions. “Integrating Roxio’s digital media services enables device manufacturers to offer an enriched home and mobile entertainment experience that combines the best of Hollywood with the best in personal memories.”
A Web site, www.photoshow.com, has been set up to allow consumers to create their slideshows.
“People love how PhotoShow makes it easy to create and share stories using home video and photos, and the ability to publish shows to the CinemaNow Digital Locker will only add to their excitement,” said Matt DiMaria, GM of the Roxio division of Sonic Solutions.
