JRiver Passes Flood Stage and Still Rising

Microsoft and Apple Competitor Enjoying Success


Minneapolis (June 6, 2012):

With a raft of new improvements, JRiver continues to rise in popularity as the comprehensive digital media player that sets the high water mark in both audio and video. The small, fiercely independent software company announced today that sales of its latest media player, JRiver Media Center, are up more than 60% over last year's sales.

"MC is still a largely unknown product competing with Windows Media Center and iTunes, but we think we've well passed their capabilities. We've been at this for a decade now, and we're now being inundated by new users who love being part of it." said Jim Hillegass, CEO of JRiver.

JRiver Media Center for Windows manages audio, video, photos, and documents. It's an extremely powerful player that works flawlessly with all file formats.

Matt Ashland, JRiver's CTO, knows MC is a terrific player, but has this sober perspective on improvements, "If we don't keep improving, we're toast. Listening to our customers lets us stay one step ahead."

JRiver has a complete set of network features to store and playback media around the home. This includes multiple solutions for remote control on Android and iPhone, and full support for DLNA.

The latest improvements make JRiver Media Center easier, faster, and more precise:

Red October provides zero configuration video setup that delivers the highest quality video available. DirectShow the way it was meant to be.

Relentless attention to detail has allowed JRiver to enhance the speed of each new version. MC is now 10 to 100 times faster than iTunes for many operations.

More Precise
MC is well known as a bitperfect player that delivers the original quality of the media, whether it's in the listening room or the home theater.

Jim Hillegass concluded, "Today we have a flood of new users and times are very exciting. But we know our biggest news is yet to come."
