Matsushita Electric Ind. Co. Ltd (Panasonic) is working with Microsoft to enable interoperability between SD memory card-based music players from Panasonic and Windows Media.

Once the collaborative work is completed in the second half of 2005, it is expected that consumers will then be able to download music in Windows Media Audio and Windows Media Digital Rights Management (DRM) format from online music stores and use Windows Media Player 10 to transfer the music securely onto an SD memory card. Consumers will be able to playback that music with Panasonic's SD memory card enabled portable AV products.

Through the collaboration, Panasonic hopes to make online music distribution and playback on devices with SD memory more seamless for consumers. Panasonic plans to introduce SD card-based audio player products supporting Windows Media DRM and additional players later in the year.
