Microsoft Corp has entered into a joint agreement with Matsushita Industrial Co Ltd to provide Digital Video (DV) support for Microsoft’s DirectX media platform. Under the agreement, the two companies will work together to develop DV hardware and software products for personal computers. Matsushita will develop and license a DV software codec that will allow DV to be supported in a DirectX filter, enabling users to capture video from standard DV cameras and manipulate the content using low-cost video editing tools. The DV enhancements will be integrated as part of DirectX media, scheduled for release in the summer of 1997. Microsoft also announced Tuesday the development of four additional Win32 drivers that will support various interactive multimedia and DV devices.
