Fluendo announces the last release of its multimedia codec pack available on Open Solaris, the open OS by Sun Microsystems

BARCELONA, SPAIN January 30th, 2009
Fluendo S.A. today announced the latest release of its multimedia codec pack, the V7.
Fluendo is an established leading provider of multimedia codecs on the GNU/Linux Market. Fluendo has developed a set of audio and video decoders. Fluendo supports and contributes to the development of the GStreamer multimedia framework, which is emerging as the standard media framework on Linux platforms. This includes support for all main software platforms, as Open Solaris for example.
Several years have passed since Fluendo first started selling its codec pack on line, to help all Linux users enhance their multimedia experience with high quality decoders. Now with its last release, the V7, Fluendo offers the users a full set of codecs, and all users of Open Solaris are now able to enjoy them.
The new Fluendo codec pack V7 includes:
01. Windows Media Audio Decoder (Windows Media 7, 8, 9, 10, Pro, Lossless and Speech)
02. Windows Media Video Decoder (Windows Media 7, 8, 9 and VC1)
03. Windows Media ASF Demuxer
04. Windows Media MMS Networking
05. MPEG2 Video Decoder
06. MPEG4 Part 2 Video Decoder
07. DivX 3.11 Alpha Video Decoder
08. H.264/AVC Video Decoder
09. MPEG2 Program Stream and Transport Stream demuxer
10. MPEG4 ISO Demuxer
11. MP3 Audio Decoder
12. AAC Audio Decoder
13. LPCM Audio Decoder

The full pack is available on all main Linux distributions (RedHat, Ubuntu, Mandriva, Xandros, Solaris, Suze, Fedora) and for different hardware platforms, x86, 32 and 64 bits.
“We are really proud to be able to propose this new pack to users, which includes real evolution from the last one, like new codecs integrated (Divx3 and LPCM), HD TV playback enabled, H264 and AAC available for 64 bits architecture. Fluendo has always worked listening to the user's need, and the availability of our codecs on Open Solaris has always been one of the questions we had. Enabling our full codec pack on Open Solaris has been a challenge we are happy to have reached together with the Sun team,” said Julien Moutte, Fluendo co-founder and CEO. “Our objective is to keep on working to increase the list of our codecs and platforms supported, so feel free to connect to our brand new webshop at www.fluendo.com and give us your feedback”.
From February 16th to 19th, Sun Microsystems will be exhibiting at the Mobile World Congress (GSM) in Barcelona. Feel free to contact us and come to see us.
