Corel, Creative to bring multimedia to Linux

Corel and multimedia specialist Creative Technology, have signed an agreement that will advance the development of Linux applications for high-quality audio and video.

Creative will work with Corel to add support for its line of Sound Blaster Live digital audio products and its line of personal digital entertainment (PDE) Internet products that include Internet devices, applications and services, the companies said.

As part of this collaborative effort, Corel will distribute its upcoming Linux-based suite of applications with support for Creative's industry-standard audio products and PDE devices bundled in.

Based on the agreement, Creative and Corel will collaboratively develop Linux drivers for Creative's branded products. Creative's PDE Internet products include the Nomad line of portable audio devices and the WebCam Go line of portable PC cameras. Sound Blaster Live drivers for Linux are already available and will, under the agreement, be customised for Corel's distribution, the companies said.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
