Colorado vNet Shipping its Vibe Video System
Low-cost video servers designed to help integrators get their "foot in the door" of server market.
Colorado vNet has officially launched its much-awaited low-cost Vibe Video System, which stores movies, music and photo collections on a server for instant access from any TV in the home.
The new system will be sold exclusively through Colorado vNet custom integrators.
In order to accommodate a variety of distributed installations and video libraries, it offers:
- two models of Server/Player (VS1-100S and VS1-200S)
- a networked Player (VP1-1S)
- three models of Network Servers (VN1-150, VN1-300, and VN1-600)
Both the Server/Player and Player will play Blu-ray Disc media and support high-definition televisions or A/V receivers with HDMI and component video (720p, 1080i, 1080p), and all major surround sound formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio. Advanced up-scaling technology delivers DVD playback with up to 1080p resolution.
Consumers will also get a pre-paid lifetime subscription to the Macrovision All Media Guide (AMG) recognition service for DVD/CD metadata and cover art.
It complements the Vibe Audio System already on the market.
The VS1-100S and VS1-200S Vibe Server/Players archive approximately 100 and 200 DVDs (1 TB or 2 TB) respectively with RAID 1 backup, and play up to three unique streams simultaneously.
The storage capacity of a Server/Player can be extended by adding one or more Network Servers. The VN1-150, VN1-300, and VN1-600 Vibe Network Servers archive up to 600 DVDs (1 TB, 2 TB or 4 TB in RAID 5) for networked playback of up to 10 simultaneous streams.
Mike Malone, vice president of sales for Colorado vNet, says the product offers “our integrators a foot in the door with a simple solution.”
The system is set to ship by mid-December.
