KDDI Corporation chooses Corel software for direct-to-disc downloads Japan-based KDDI Corporation has struck a license agreement with Corel Corporation to use Corel's DVD burning technology in a new movie download service. KDDI will use its high speed broadband network to provide a new service that enables consumers to download a full two-hour movie from the Internet and burn it directly to a DVD disc in as few as 11 minutes. Launched on September 27, the KDDI DVD Burning service will only be available in Japan.
KDDI's service is the first of its kind to be launched, and uses CPRM security for network downloading. By incorporating Corel's DVD burning technology with KDDI's unique movie download service, consumers can enjoy the movies they want, whenever they want without having to visit a video rental outlet or purchase online and wait for delivery.

There are no subscription or monthly fees, no buy/wait/return problems; only a single, low-cost transaction for each movie selected from KDDI's robust library of titles. KDDI's new movie distribution service will appeal to consumers, content providers and ISPs. Consumers can quickly purchase and burn movies from the comfort of their own home. Content providers can increase their exposure and sell directly to consumers. ISPs on the KDDI IP network can become more competitive by offering the latest broadband offerings. Any other ISP user can enjoy the server as well.
