Inteset Media Centers Support Blu-ray

"Movie Collection" enables users to access ripped DVDs and Blu-ray discs in one seamless library, with automatically generated metadata


Inteset ‘Movie Collect’ application offers DVD features that are not available natively in Media Center.

Inteset, maker of high-performance Media Center products, is adding Blu-ray support to its products, and enhancing its proprietary "Movie Collection" application for managing DVD content.

For all of its content-management capabilities, Windows Media Center doesn't do so well when it comes to building movie libraries, not least because it does not attach metadata to ripped DVDs.

For years, Inteset has overcome this deficiency with the Movie Collection module available free of charge with all of its servers. The software enables users to store, search, and play back movies seamlessly within the Windows Media Center interface.

Now Movie Collection can incorporate Blu-ray content.

In addition, movie profile lookups are simpler than ever, according to Inteset. The system will scan the inserted DVD or Blu-ray disc to identify it, and then retrieve full profile information from Inteset’s updated movie database.

Lookups can also be performed based on UPC code and movie title.

The Inteset Movie Collection module is available on all Inteset media servers.

Blu-ray playback is now standard on the Inteset Maximus media server and optional on the Denzel and Vana media servers.

The module upgrade is free on all prior and new Inteset servers running Vista Media Center.

And may we suggest Inteset's 15 terabyte A/V NAS to store all of that Blu-ray content?

What Inteset Does that Media Center Doesn't

Here are a few features that Inteset's Movie Collection offers that you don't get (without some effort) with traditional Media Center PCs:
  • Rip and store DVDs and Blu-ray discs
  • Easily play back Blu-ray discs
  • Set bookmarks or play from a bookmark in a different room
  • Distribute DVD content to other rooms
  • Set parental controls for cover art
  • Edit profiles
  • Find profiles by movie title or UPC code
  • Accommodate adult material

Does Inteset play Blu-rays or store them on the hard drive?

How do they rip them legally?

This is illegal, pure and simple.

You will whine and scream about “fair use”, but when Hollywood is bankrupt, there will be nothing left to steal, and no reason to install a home-theater of any kind, so encouraging this kind of product is accelerating your own demise.

I doubt anyone will buy a fancy home-theatre to watch home-made videos on you-Tube.  Kill Hollywood through piracy, and modern movie-making will be reduced to video blogs and cats hitting screen doors.

There’s nothing illegal about backing up your own movies. This doesn’t make Hollywood go bankrupt. People buying Blu-ray movies (and collectors by lots of them), Hollywood doesn’t lose money.
