S1Digital to Ship CableCARD Enabled Media Centers in Early May

April 25th 2007, New York, NY – S1Digital, a leading builder
of high-end Media Centers announced they will be introducing CableCARD (OCUR)
enabled Media Centers and Servers in early May.

Digital Cable Tuners are the “must have” technology of 2007
and will allow customers to watch and record digital cable programming,
including premium HDTV channels, directly from their S1Digital Media Center
without the need for a set top box. Up to two Digital Cable Tuners can be
installed on each Media Center.

When coupled with Media Center Extenders (such as the Xbox
360) customers will be able to stream live TV, including HDTV, to other rooms
around their home via a standard home network, providing an extremely easy to
install and use multi-room video distribution solution.

Adding Digital Cable Tuners rounds out S1Digital’s already
full featured solutions that include HD-DVD and Blu-ray playback, 1080p HDMI
video output, 7.1 channel surround sound, multi-terabyte storage and Intel Viiv
Technology. S1Digital Media Centers are powered by Intel Core 2 Duo and Quad
processors and run Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate.

“We are excited to offer this new HDTV experience on our
Media Centers. The inclusion of CableCARD technology is yet another example of
S1Digital’s commitment to bringing the very best home entertainment solutions
to our customers,” said Paul Heitlinger, S1Digital CEO and founder.

S1Digital ProLine and Home Series Media Centers with CableCARD
are available for pre-order now.

For a demonstration of S1Digital’s Media Centers with
CableCARD, visit the S1Digital Experience at 117 E. 7th St or Stereo
Exchange, at 627 Broadway, just North of Houston St., in New York City (from
the middle of May).

  1. Fantastic news. But why are they charging $199 for one card, but $499 for dual tuners on their Platinum Edition!!!

  2. Well because the base unit includes an ATSC/NTSC tuner already, the price difference for two cablecard tuners is more than the price difference for one tuner (because the $ amount of the ATSC Tuner is included in the price of the additional single Cablecard tuner).

    That probably doesn’t make sense, but it means that we’re not ripping you off.
