Salt Lake City - Multimedia server resource
said Monday that it is now shipping its Solo 2 3D all-in-one 12TB Blu-ray entertainment server.
"The Solo 2 3D simplifies entertainment by providing instant access to your entire collection of Blu-ray movies, Blu-ray 3D movies, DVD, music, photos, and online media including Netflix, Pandora and others," stated Douglas Kihm, Mozaex CEO. "The Solo 2 3D satisfies the growing â€˜sweet spot' demand for a Blu-ray 3D solution that is scalable in storage and multi-room playback. No other entertainment server offers this incredible price-to-performance value. The closest competition costs more than twice as much, requires disc changers, and doesn't support 3D, photos or online media."
The Solo 2 3D will carry a "less than $6,000" suggested retail. Up to four additional Blu-ray players may be added for $2,495 apiece, the company said.
The company said it has more than 750 authorized dealers in 20 countries.
The Solo 2 3D improves upon the company's previous all-in-one Blu-ray solution released last year, by adding the ability to store and play up to 300 Blu-ray or 1,500 DVD movies.
The unit features a black brushed-aluminum chassis measuring 13.3 inches deep. It is cooled by quiet dual 20db fans. A rack-mount kit is optionally available for 19-inch rack-mount applications.
The Mozaex server supports 3DTVs and 3D glasses from Mitsubishi DLP, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung, in addition to NVidia 3D Vision and Xpand glasses.
The PC portion of the Solo 2 3D incorporates Nvidia GPUs, 7.1-channel surround HD audio, FullHD 3D Vision, CUDA and PureVideo HD technology.
Users can expand the Solo by adding up to four players to simultaneously play any media at any time in five rooms. The player's retail pricing begins at $2,495 for the DVD drive model and $2,995 for the Blu-ray drive model. While all 1-, 2-, and 3-series players play loaded Blu-ray movies, the 2- and 3-series players play both loaded and disc-based Blu-ray Active 3D movies.
Interoperability support is offered for use with most control systems, including touc panel controllers from Crestron, AMX, Control4, RTI, Savant, Elan and NetStreams, among many others.
Although it is possible to rip Blu-ray Discs and DVDs to the server for playback from the server's hard drives, Mozaex said its system is "100 percent legal because it does not ship with unlicensed decryption software."
Mozaex optionally offers a "Cache 100" disc changer that prevents movie playback if the disc is not present. The Cache 100 is expected to ship by March 31 at a $2,495 suggested retail.
