Sonic and Widevine launching USB movie drives
July 29, 2009
Sonic Solutions and Widevine are enabling the delivery of premium movies on USB flash memory devices. The self-contained CinemaNow USB Movie Drives will include an integrated media player as well as the necessary video codecs to enable instant high-quality PC playback of movie content offline.
Once connected to the Internet, consumers can add the title to their Roxio CinemaNow Digital Locker to access it on other ecosystem devices such as networked Blu-ray Disc players and connected televisions. Sonic expects the first drives to begin appearing at retail in the 4th quarter.
