Touring the Windows Vista Pavillion

Sign in to queue

Description

The Windows Vista Pavillion at CES is a huge white tent divided into several sections demonstrating the various Windows Vista usage scenarios; Digital Memories (photos), Music, Gaming, Productivity, TV & Movies etc etc.
We took a tour through the pavillion and checked out some of the cool new devices on show - such as the HP MediaSmart TV and Samsung "back pack" Media Centre Extender.

We also sat down with JP Wollersheim from the Windows Live team and ran through the updated work flow for digital photos on Windows Vista. From camera to PC to email, photo printing labs and wifi enabled digital photo frames.

    Too bad that the trailers from the Internet TV section isn't high-res. I think a lot of Media Center owners have fancy HDTV's, and with trailers not doing HD, it might be hard to get a person back after being disatisified with MSN's low-res offerings.

    WLPG is great if you're just a simple user who wants to do some quick edits on photos, have a nice and easy place to view, rename files, add metadata, and other small things. But I think the editing tools are a bit primative in some areas, the UI is harder to modify, and a bunch of other little quirks I see. But I guess it is good for a free desktop product. Just wish there were an online version as well.

    The Vista pavillion looked interesting.
