Xperinet has announced their full support for the Blu-ray format recently. This company previously worked on both formats, but has decided to go exclusive with the Blu. We're not trying to make this seem as big a deal as the Paramount/Dreamworks defection, but it's still another company we can welcome into our fold, give them a soft bathrobe, and play classical music to. For those not in the know, like us, Xperinet creates media servers that network all your home entertainment together -- for example, storing DVDs onto its hard drive for viewing on any TV in your house. Now they plan to do that with Blu-ray.
Xperinet's media servers are a real good bolster to the Blu-ray camp, though, since they'll help deliver the full HD experience in ways we probably haven't gotten to yet -- without a disc. This is the first custom electronics integration company to throw all their weight behind a single format, and with upcoming USB upgrade kits for existing media servers, it's going to be pretty significant ... so long as you have a MIRV server sitting around. When Xperinet's new client launches, it will allow 1080p video to be seen throughout one's home from a single source. That's pretty cool.
