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.

but did you say MUCH-AWAITED,LOW-COST Vibe Video System, in this economy? I do not know too many that have ten to fifteen to blow on just storage and playback.

I would say, Wyndle, you need to change your circles of friends.  I can get a blue ray player, store my dvds, and later, on when I’m ready, add another one, seems pretty bad @$$.  I’m not that comuter Savvy so all the people doing the same thing with pcs, limewire, and windows media, can continue to do their thing.  I like this rig better.  I could go into the advantgages of financial planning, but I won’t

Colorado vNet systems are lower priced than it’s competitors…by far.  It’s not meant to be a player only…but a video server.  Plus, there are some features coming down the road that really differentiates it from other products.

There’s a new forum site just for vNet products.
