Niveus Doubles Server Capabilities, Offers Simplified Media Centers
Niveus Media CEO Tim Cutting said at CEDIA Expo that the numerous new market entries from his company would provide integrators double the power, processing capability, number-of-zones reach and media storage capacity while at the same time offering them some of the trimmed-feature Media Center product choices they say they want for certain applications.
Among the announcements Cutting made were the introduction of the Movie Library 1.5 content management tool – what he termed “the ultimate movie server. Our goal is to supply dealers with the full arsenal to go after the movie server category.” It features disc-in-drive support; a 10-foot interface for backing up movies to the Niveus Media Server; and expanded metadata with high-resolution cover art capability to handle Blu-ray content.
He said that it complements the company’s Cargo Edition storage server, expandable up to 16TB, which is powered by Windows Home Server.
