    The HD format is already compatible with Windows Vista through the Windows Imaging Component (WIC) codec and can be also used on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 if you install a free WIC utility. This format is also compatible in the .Net Framework 3.0 development platform and also available for Mac OSX.
