Niveus Media Introduces First Windows Media Center Extender Designed For The Custom Install Channel
The Niveus Media Extender takes digital entertainment
installs to the next level in performance and profitability!
Denver, CO – CEDIA Expo 2007 – September 5-9 – Booth #294
– Niveus Media, the leader in high-end digital entertainment for the
connected home, proudly introduces the Niveus Media Extender, a hardware device
that gives users the ability to enjoy the Niveus Media Center experience
throughout the whole home. While dealers and consumers continue to embrace the
robust functionality of Niveus’ 2007 Windows Vista Ultimate-based Media
Servers, Niveus has shifted focus to create a superior solution for
distributing the Niveus Entertainment Experience through the entire home.
Welcome the Niveus Media Extender.
By connecting the Niveus Media Extender to any TV throughout
the home, users are granted access to live and recorded TV, digital photos,
digital music, home video, and exclusive online multi-media content, including
downloadable music and local weather – all accessed through and stored on the
Niveus Media Server. The Niveus Media Extender offers users a full fidelity
experience, uncompromised 1080p video, digital audio, and the same amazing 3D
user interface found on the award-winning Niveus Media Center.
In addition to the intuitive on-screen experience, the
Niveus Media Extender features the proprietary Niveus Glacier™ Passive Cooling
system for cool and quiet performance and a sleek and stylish A/V form-factor,
designed to blend seamlessly into any zone of the home and flexible enough to
be installed into a rack-mount solution application.
Niveus Media’s whole-home entertainment system enables
independent content control which makes it possible for a person in a Niveus
Media Extender zone to access one digital entertainment feature while someone at
the Media Server or separate Extender zone accesses another. Niveus currently
offers Extender support for up to five zones.
“We are excited that Niveus Media
is announcing Niveus Media Extender to deliver the Windows Media Center
experience throughout the connected home,” said Dave Alles, General Manager for
eHome at Microsoft. “This is a high-end device clearly targeted at the CEDIA
channel and broadens the options available for custom installers building on
Windows Media Center.”
“The Niveus Media Extender
provides dealers with ability to take their Windows Media Center installs to
the next level,” states John Trimbach, Vice President Sales, Niveus Media.
“Currently, there is no other manufacturer in the channel offering an extender
solution with such audio video performance capabilities and we are proud to be
the first to provide dealers with a profitable and high-performing Extender
Technical specifications, pricing,
and availability will be announced on September 27, 2007. Niveus Media’s 2008
