Minneapolis, MN (March 24, 2005): J.
River MEDIA CENTER software, a multimedia application for organizing
and playing digital music, photo and video files, now provides
support for the new Sony PlayStation® Portable (PSP), which was
released today in the US. Sony’s device, which does not initially
ship with software, is a next generation handheld entertainment
system that lets users play games, watch movies and listen to music.
A special beta release of MEDIA CENTER 11.0 is available today that
allows users to transfer their photo, music and video collections from
their PC’s to the device for playback.
MEDIA CENTER already supports many devices
from companies such as Creative (NASDAQ: CREAF), Rio® and Apple®.
Features such as on-the-fly file conversion and encoding as well as
industry-leading file organization capability have made the software
a proven choice for digital media enthusiasts.
Peter Sohal, VP of Marketing at J. River,
said, "We think that our software is a natural fit for the PSP, as
it already helps users to manage all their media. Other software
packages often focus on just music or just photos, but our
all-in-one solution means that PSP fans can rely on one application
for organization and transfer. It’s simple and fast."
