Milpitas, CA –
December 30, 2008 – Niveus Media has teamed up with ADI to distribute the
Niveus Media Server to custom electronics installers across the country. Now
available at ADI branch locations, the Niveus Media Server – Vail Edition is an
energy-efficient entertainment server designed to store, aggregate, and
distribute HD content throughout the home.
With support for movies, music, photos, and much more in its
slender frame, Vail is packed with advanced technologies to deliver stunning
in-home audio and video reproduction. A CES Innovations 2008 Design and
Engineering Awards recipient, Vail is based on Windows Vista® Home Premium
featuring Windows® Media Center. It is equipped with an optional Blu-ray Disc™
drive, 250GB of storage, and proprietary Niveus technologies including the new
Niveus Movie Library movie management interface!
Through Vail, digital photography and video collections are
securely stored and accessed throughout the home; CD collections are merged
with downloaded audio tracks to create a uniform and all-encompassing music
library; and Blu-ray Disc™, DVD, and digital movies from leading content
providers such as VideoGiants, are aggregated in the Niveus Movie Library, an
attractive and intuitive movie management interface.
As Niveus’ first energy-efficient media server, Vail Edition
offers remarkably low power consumption at less than 180W. Niveus engineers
were able to integrate the industry’s finest components into Niveus’ most
compact media server, at just over 2 inches in height and 17lbs in weight.
Suitable for rack mount installation or living room
placement, Vail is engineered with a silent active cooling design for cool and
quiet (less than 30db noise) performance. For seamless integration into the
home network, Vail is built with the proprietary Niveus ConvergencePanel™
high-performance audio and video ports.
All Vail Editions sold through ADI are bundled with an
exclusive HDGiants content package, including 1 HDNet film and credit towards
the purchase of MusicGiants downloads. Dealers will have the opportunity to
earn recurring revenue on all the content that a customer purchases.
“The ability to store, control and stream High Definition
content has become extremely important, and the Niveus Media Server – Vail
Edition provides an excellent solution to do so,” said RJ Hirshkind, Senior
Product Manager for A/V for ADI. “This technology will help dealers build
advanced home theaters that can manage HD video, music, photos and more.”
