Free Download Windows Media Services for Windows Server 2008

A new Windows Media Server product, which will ship (only) as part of Windows .NET Server. Install the latest version of Windows Media Services and related remote administration tools. Windows Media Services 9 Series was updated for the Microsoft Windows Server operating systems with Service Pack 1 (SP1), and for the new x64-based versions of Windows Server 2003, adding advanced streaming functionality and native 64-bit support for even higher scalability. Now more than ever, it's the industry's most powerful streaming media server.

Windows Media Services manages and delivers streaming audio and video, or an intranet or the Internet. It provides the server-side implementation of Microsoft's new Fast Streaming technologies, a simple new administrative console that should be welcomed by IT administrators as well as content creators, and new functionality such as Server-Side Playlists, and new scenario-based wizards that, like other similar wizards in Win.NET Server, really take the pain out of accomplishing common tasks.

One of the more interesting parts of the Windows Media 9 Series Reviewers' Workshop was the presentations by Adobe and Anark, two third party software developers that are heavily investing in Microsoft's latest digital media technologies.
1. Delivery of high quality video and audio - Finally, fast streaming and state of the art media.
2. Multi-channel sound - DVD audio quality over the web to all of your speakers. Support for this feature will be in future Adobe products.
3. Hi-Definition frame sizes - He-Def quality at DVD bandwidths. "This is a big deal for After Effects moving on," Hensler said. "If you're trying to do comp or proof exchanges with clients, you want to see them at the right frame rate."
4. Improvements in the SDK - Easier updating of the media architecture means faster feature improvements for customers.
5. Now, you can actually edit in Windows Media Video format if you need to.
6. Time code support we actually like. "Unlike QuickTime's time code support, which I hate," Hensler added.
7. Broadcast color spaces and aspects - Better compression and faster results. "Aspects are necessary," he said, "because TV does not have square pixels. So it's correct for broadcast now. Did I say this was important?"
8. Frame level access to media sample, which enables media editing and transfer.
9. Synchronous support - "This is Media when I want it," Hensler said. "Editors are moving to real time effects. Our goal is to squish access to the media and do effects in real time."
