Roxio's CinePlayer software, a media suite for Windows, can now play back Blu-ray 3D titles, making it one of the first computer applications to do so.
The latest update to CinePlayer has received full certification from the Blu-ray Disc Association to be compatible with Blu-ray Profile 5, the latest Blu-ray standard that adds 3D support.
Only a couple Blu-ray Disc players actually have Blu-ray Profile 5 certification, so the addition of its support for CinePlayer is quite noteworthy.
The software will be shipping with new 3D-enabled notebooks and desktop PCs.
"With its broad 3D capability, now including Blu-ray 3D discs and rich feature set, CinePlayer continues to receive strong interest and support from PC OEMs. As a key element of our overall corporate focus on 3D, we continue to work with other industry leaders to introduce new, compelling 3D products and services that further drive the market for 3D in the home," said Roxio Executive VP Matt DiMaria.
Roxio's parent company, Sonic, is one of the biggest proponents of the 3D market. It has launched an initiative called "Total 3D" to encompass 3D support is as many of its products and services as possible.
