More from Viiv

Here's some more info, but not much more, from Intel and its partners on the new Viiv (rhymes with five) platform. It's basically a combination of hardware and software for living-room PCs--a Media Center version of the Centrino, if you will.

Intel already has more than 40 partners lined up to provide products and services that will work easily with Viiv-tagged computers, from TiVo to subscription music services. Products, applications, and services will carry the tagline: "Enjoy with Intel Viiv technology."

"This is about Intel Viiv technology-based PCs not only connecting to the TV, but also delivering the latest movies at home, creating 'music DJs,' playing games, and showcasing home photos and videos--it's a 'one-stop-shop' for entertainment," said Kevin Corbett, vice president and general manager, Content Services Group, Intel Digital Home Group in a press release. Look for more Viiv details to emerge at this year's CES show in Las Vegas and for Viiv systems to be available in the first quarter of 2006.
