Last month ZDNet had a video of an media managing tool from Microsoft's Research Department. The problem was this video was under 3 minutes long. This time the Channel 9 team has put together a video roughly 8 minutes long showcasing this awesome technology.
Digital photography. It's one of the hottest product categories. It seems like everyone's getting a digital camera lately, but managing those photos is really hard. Some of us on the Channel 9 team, for instance, have more than 8,000 digital photos, already (and we know some guys who already have more than 50,000). So, while we were wandering around Microsoft Research with Kevin Schofield, we wondered "what could be done to make organizing photos easier and nicer?"
Microsoft Research's Next Media group has the answer. Here Curtis Wong, the guy who leads the group, demoed for us their Media Browser technology (News.com called it Photo Triage, but the team actually calls it the "Media Browser" because it does more than photos). This technology demonstrates how you could organize and look at your digital photos in the future.
