NVIDIA Introduces nStant Media
I know at least one Japanese notebook (the NEC LaVie N) already has a similar feature. It will be good to see this technology coming to more mainstream notebooks.
|NVIDIA Corporation, the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, today unveiled NVIDIA nStant Media—new multimedia software that gives users quick, easy access to digital content on notebook PCs. With the touch of a button, nStant Media enables immediate access to DVDs, digital photos, MP3s and other music files without having to wait for the PC operating system to load.
In less than nine seconds after powering on, the end user has access to media content, utilizing a fraction of the battery life required by traditional notebook solutions.
