S1Digital Sets a New Reference Standard with ProLine Series Media Centers
New York, NY, February 20th, 2007 -- S1Digital, a leading builder of high-end Media Centers and Servers, today announced the launch of their ProLine Series which sets a new reference standard for Media Centers based on Microsoft Vista Ultimate. The ProLine Series includes S1Digital's flagship rack mount Media Server Edition and the silent FX Edition. Designed specifically for custom audio and video installers, the ProLine Media Centers enable installers to offer their customers the latest in high-end digital home entertainment solutions.
The Media Server Edition raises the bar for Media Centers by including up to 3TB of storage in six hot swap drive bays. Managed by a dedicated 3ware RAID controller, the Media Server can effortlessly record multiple HDTV streams while simultaneously streaming content throughout the home (via Media Center Extenders) and providing full data protection. The 3U rack mount chassis fits into standard 20 depth A/V racks. Other features include HD-DVD playback, 1080p HDMI video output, Dolby Master Studio 7.1 channel audio and dual HDTV and SDTV tuners enabling recording of up to four TV channels at the same time. The Media Server Edition is powered by the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors, includes Intel Viiv technology and runs on Microsoft Vista Ultimate.
If silence is golden then the Media Center FX Edition is 24k. The FX Edition features a sophisticated European design making it a centerpiece of any living room. Extruded aluminum heat sinks draw heat away from critical components via silent heat pipe technology. Other features include one terabyte of internal storage, HD-DVD playback as standard or optional Blu-ray drive, 1080p HDMI video output, Dolby Home Theater 7.1 channel audio and dual HDTV and SDTV tuners enabling recording of up to four TV channels at the same time. The FX Edition is also powered by the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors, includes Intel Viiv technology and runs on Microsoft Vista Ultimate.
Offering unprecedented support for the installer community, S1Digital's ProLine Series products can be customized with add-ons to enable home automation capabilities, two-way control from Crestron, AMX and other touchscreens, and integration with Russound and Nuvo multi-room audio systems (coming soon).
We're now able to offer customized solutions, products and support specifically to our custom installer market, said Paul Heitlinger, S1Digital CEO and Founder. Partnering with S1Digital really enables our resellers to offer their customers the latest in digital entertainment technology.
The Media Server Edition will be available in March 2007 and the FX Edition will be available by the end of February. Dealer pricing is available to approved resellers.
All of S1Digital's Media Centers and solutions including home automation, multi-room audio and video distribution and touchscreen control, are on display at the S1Digital Experience showroom in New York. S1Digital's products will also be demonstrated at the Electronic House Expo, October 8-10th in Orlando, FL in booth 1723.
