Intel Corp. and CinemaNow are collaborating to enhance the Burn-to-DVD technology launched by CinemaNow in July via Intel Viiv technology. The solution, to be displayed at CES 2007, will also enable legal downloading and recording of movie content to blank DVDs for playback on both the PC and consumer electronics devices, including most standard DVD players.

Intel Viiv technology-based PCs allow costumers to view their movie content locally on the PC, sync it with portable devices, and wired or wirelessly extend the content through their home networks to connected devices, such as large-screen TVs.

"The ability for consumers to legitimately burn premium content to DVD is one of the greatest barriers to delivering consumers the flexibility to truly enjoy digital home entertainment when and where they want it," said Kevin Corbett, vice president, Intel's Digital Home Group and general manager of the company's Content Services Group. "The investment by CinemaNow to advance the Burn-to-DVD service model is a major step forward in the digital distribution of content, and Intel is excited to be working with them to bring these capabilities to consumers via Intel Viiv technology."

Additionally, the two companies plan to optimize the Burn-to-DVD service to enable consumers to use the service through a large screen, or 10-foot interface at home. The service will be available early this year. Currently, the Burn-to-DVD solution is available through a standard PC, or 2-foot interface.

Moreover, CinemaNow unveiled plans to deliver additional Intel Viiv technology capabilities early this year, including extending premium movie content over the home network to connected devices.

"Joining forces with Intel will help us improve our digital home distribution model," said Curt Marvis, CEO of CinemaNow. "CinemaNow is the ideal platform to demonstrate Intel's enhanced processor power and this technology will dramatically improve our Burn-to-DVD consumer experience."
