Windows 7 and Sharing Music, Pictures and Videos

May 13, 2009

While conducting a demo to research this New Orleans Onsite Computer Service post, a visiting Microsoft business client at our lab inquired about the wonders of Windows 7.  In our lab at that time, we were examining the new media streaming features that not only allow access to your media collection on other PCs and networked devices in the home, but also provide the capability to enjoy your music, pictures and videos while away from home via the Internet.

Windows 7 includes a networked media understanding that is more user friendly and effortless to install and configure.  With Windows 7, enjoying music, pictures, and video on your networked PCs or media devices is a snap to use with little knowledge or concern for media formats, transports, or protocols.

The Windows 7 magic that facilitates this interconnectivity is a new open industry standard known as the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA).  Supporting this standard allows a plethora of increasing Network Media Devices (NMDs), such as electronic picture frames, network radios, televisions, and other devices, to work as seamless companions to Windows 7 PCs that participate in the whole-home media experience.

Although everyone in attendance enjoyed the demo, the Microsoft business client had one question: “How does sharing digital information like music, pictures, and videos between PCs help businesses operate in a more productive and profitable manner?”  That is a good question and we plan to address the Window 7’s improvements for businesses in future posts.
