Windows Media Center

Interview with Mark Pendergrast

Interview with Mark PendergrastWhile at the Microsoft MVP Summit 2011 I was able to sit down with Mark Pendegrast. He is a product manager for marketing on the Windows Embedded team. We were able to get into a lot of topics around Embedded. We discussed how it’s being used, who is using it, and who is working on Media Center currently. We also talked more specifically about some of the products that are going to be using it, and when customers will be able to purchase devices. Thanks to Mark Pendergrast for making time for us in his very busy schedule! View the interview on Youtube to watch in HD.
