S1DIGITAL INTRODUCES FIRST BLU-RAY DISC CHANGER FULLY INTEGRATED WITH MEDIA CENTER
S1Digital continues to grow its digital entertainment ecosystem with the introduction of a Blu-ray Disc Changer.
New Rochelle, NJ – February 3, 2010 – S1Digital,
the leader in digital entertainment solutions, today announced the
launch of the S1Digital Blu-ray Disc Changer. The changer can hold 100
discs and seamlessly integrates with any S1Digiral Entertainment Server
or Media Center.
When connected to an
S1Digital Media Center or any third party Microsoft Windows 7 or Vista
PC that includes media center, customers are able to load up to 100
Blu-ray and/or DVD movies into the S1Digital Bly-ray Disc Changer.
Using the included playback software, each disc will be scanned and
metadata and cover-art automatically downloaded to the server. Once
catalogued, users can view more information about the movie, or watch
the movie by selecting the appropriate cover-art, which is all
available on the familiar and easy-to-use media center interface. The
changer is simple to use and enables almost instant access to movies
without having to physically find and load each movie.
“No other solution currently on the market integrates a Blu-ray changer with media center,” said Paul Heitlinger, president of S1Digital. “For customers that want instant and direct access to their movie discs, this is the only solution.”
When connected to an
S1Digital Entertainment Server or any third party Windows Home Server,
customers can automatically archive their Blu-ray,
DVD and CD discs to the server*. With the included software, every
movie and audio disc will automatically be stored on the hard drive,
catalogued and metadata and cover-art will be downloaded. As each movie
or album is stored, it is immediately available on the customer’s home
network from any S1Digital Media Center (or other PCs and certain media
streaming devices) for playback.
“A typical Blu-ray disc can take an hour or more to archive,” continues Paul Heitlinger. “With
our solution, you simply load up the changer and hit go. You don’t have
to load each disc one by one. The changer will automatically move from
disc to disc so customers don’t have to worry about spending days
manually storing movies and music.”
