Niveus Media Server
Niveus’ Media Servers, based on Microsoft’s Windows Media Center (Vista Ultimate) platform, store, aggregate, and provide access to entire collections of digital media (Music, Photos, TV, Videos, and more) and offer a whole-home entertainment experience. Niveus Media offers a variety of Servers to match the end-user’s desired storage, optical drive, configuration, and number of zones within the home. The Media Server line includes the passively cooled Summit Series models Rainier, Denali, and Denali Limited Edition and the rack-mountable Pro Series n4, n7, and n9. All Niveus Media Servers are capable of storing, managing and playing television, music, radio, movies, photos, and more.
Niveus Digital Cable Receiver
Compatible with Niveus’ Summit Series and Pro Series Media Servers, the Digital Cable Receiver is an external, dual CableCARD device designed to enable HD Cable television capabilities. Optimized for dual HDTV CableCARD recording, the Niveus Digital Cable Receiver enables the recording of one high definition channel while simultaneously watching another high definition channel. Multi-zone access is enabled via the Extender for Windows Media Center Platform, which Niveus leverages via the Niveus Media Extender – EDGE.
Niveus Media Extender – EDGE
Based on Extender for Windows Media Center technology and featuring proprietary Niveus Media Technology, the Niveus Media Extender - EDGE extends the Niveus Media Server experience to additional rooms of the house. The EDGE allows access to cable, high-definition TV, a wide array of video formats, digital music, paid movies, photos and more from any TV in the house, with a wired network connection. EDGE supports the same interface as the Niveus Media Server, and playback of television and true 1080p video.
Niveus Disc Changer – Ice Vault 200
With support for over a thousand DVD discs when daisy chained, the Niveus Disc Changer, paired with a Niveus Media Server, enables the legal storage and playback of most DVD movie collections. The Niveus Disc Changer inherits all the video & audio performance of the Niveus Media Server and due to secure, digital connection via firewire, all DVDs are decoded and played back through the ISF Certified Niveus Media Server.
Niveus Storage Server
Featuring Niveus Reflection™ Technology, UPnP Support, the Niveus A/V Storage Server provides 2 to 4 Terabytes (2000 - 4000 Gigabytes) of scalable storage and offers accessibility and data redundancy to protect digital assets. Additional Niveus Storage Servers can be placed on a home network, enabling a modular upgrade path for limitless home storage. With hard drives isolated in an anti-vibration chamber, the Niveus Storage Server has no fans for silent and cool operation.
To combat fan and hard drive noise while keeping the system running cool, Niveus Media has developed a patent-pending Passive Cooling technology dubbed Niveus Glacier Passive Cooling. Niveus Media uses heat pipe technology to conduct the heat from the processor, the graphic card, and the northbridge to the heat sink extrusions on all Niveus Media Servers. The Summit Series Media Servers and Storage Server use heat sink extrusions to dissipate the heat out and away from the unit. Thermal pads are used in and around every hard drive that goes into a Niveus Media Server, or Storage Server. These pads additionally serve to dampen the vibration caused by the spinning hard drives, creating an effective silencing system.
All Niveus Media Servers include the proprietary ConvergencePanel which offers A/V-style connectors and ports for optimal integration into a home entertainment network.
Featured on the Niveus Storage Server, Niveus Reflection ™ allows an unlimited number of additional Internet connected Storage Servers (in remote locations) to mirror the data and reflect any incremental changes on the master Storage Server. Users are granted access to content from virtually anywhere they reside. For security and reliability, the Reflection technology also allows for automated backup of several Storage Servers to the master server. The Niveus Reflection™ Technology adds the ability to mirror data from your home Niveus Storage Server to additional Niveus Storage Servers via the Internet.
Niveus is continually developing value-added features to enhance the Windows Media Center platform and integration with other Niveus products. Niveus software updates are almost always free to current owners and are backwards compatible with previous years.
