Xperinet, MusicGiants Team to Deliver HD Movies and Music
Home media storage/distribution vendor Xperinet and “high-definition” music download service MusicGiants allied to enable Xperinet MIRV servers to directly access MusicGiants’ library for on-line shopping.
“While many customers are comfortable downloading content to their PCs, there is significant value in giving them a single user experience for accessing both their own library and the online shopping experience into a media appliance such as the Xperinet MIRV,” said MusicGiants President John Williams.
“We see internet download as the dominant model for the future of content acquisition,” said John Cox, president and CEO of Xperinet. “It gives customers an ease of purchase that far surpasses shopping for physical media, and the customer doesn’t have to fear they’ve bet on the wrong horse.” MusicGiants plans to take on Blu-ray and HD DVD with an HD movie download service, scheduled to launch in December 2007.
