Windows Media 9 Series to be included in HD-DVD logo spec

From the files of WinInfo: “The DVD Forum has approved the popular Microsoft Windows Media Video (WMV) 9 format as a mandatory technology for any device seeking the high-definition DVD (HD-DVD) logo. In other words, to use the logo, next-generation DVD players and other DVD-playback devices must support WMV. This move is a huge coup d’etat for Microsoft, which is trying to get its video and audio formats accepted as industry standards, and for consumers, who’ll be able to purchase more advanced DVD movies in the future as a result.”
