MOZAEX SHIPS SOLO 1 – WORLD’S MOST AFFORDABLE BLU-RAY SERVER
COMPLETE ALL-IN-ONE SOLO 1 1TB SUPPORTS BLU-RAY WITH 7.1 HD AUDIO FOR UNDER $4,300
Salt Lake City – March 22, 2010 – Mozaex™, the premiere manufacturer of multi-room, multimedia Blu-ray entertainment servers, has announced it has begun shipping the Solo 1 All-In-One Blu-ray Entertainment Server.
Mozaex is demonstrating the Solo 1 along with its entire product line at the 2010 Electronic House Expo (EHX), held from March 25-27 at the Orange County Convention Center (Orlando, Fla.), booth #DR1A (with LK Stockroom). With retail USA pricing starting at less than $4,300 USD and weighing in at just 6.35 pounds, the Solo 1 breaks both price and weight benchmarks.
“The Mozaex Solo 1 system allows instant playback of media either stored locally or optionally on a networked server,” said Mozaex CEO Douglas Kihm. “The Solo 1 plays media including Blu-ray and DVD movies, CD and MP3 music, photos and on-demand NetFlix™ movies and Pandora™ music via the Mozaex unique NetPlay™ online media service. Any media can be played simultaneously in any room, resulting in unprecedented ease, elegance, and excitement.”
The Solo 1 is based on an Intel Atom processor and NVidia® ION™, CUDA™ and PureVideo™ technology. With total power dissipation averaging only 50 watts, the Solo 1 delivers Blu-ray movies in full HDMI 1.3 1080p with 7.1 HD Audio at a fraction of the power needed by other Blu-ray Servers.
“The Solo 1’s unprecedented low power dissipation results in whisper quiet operation,” Kihm added. The Solo 1’s compact measurements of only 11.75 in. (W) X 2.87 in. (H) X 9in. (D) allows it to be mounted behind a TV, in a rack or on a shelf. The Solo 1 is the perfect solution for Yachts where rack space is a premium.
The Solo 1 simplifies entertainment by providing instant access to your entire collection of movies, music and photos. To operate, simply plug the Solo 1 into a TV, audio system, and the Internet and you are ready to enjoy entertainment at its best.
Solo 1 is the perfect, affordable solution for one to three room projects that only require 1TB to 6TBs of non-RAID media storage. Up to three Solo 1s can share their onboard 1TB or 2TBs of storage. On average 2TBs can store either 125 DVDs or 25 Blu-rays.
To further expand the Solo system, a Mozaex Server can be added, as well as add up to seven Mozaex players. For larger projects, Mozaex offers the “Player/Server” family which virtually supports an unlimited number of players and RAID 6 storage.
A Solo 1 without on-board storage called the Player 1 is also shipping that plays media stored on the company’s networked storage Server. The Player 1’s USA retail pricing begins at $2,495 USD.
The Solo 1 may be controlled by a number of control methods including the included IR Remote Controller, the included RF Keyboard and a wide selection of third party control systems from companies such as Crestron, AMX, Control 4, Philips, URC, RTI, HomeLogic, NetStream, among many others. A Server is required for most full 2-way touch panel control systems, such as Crestron®.
Mozaex offers at no-charge, software “Interface Modules” that support the leading control systems. For example, Mozaex offers a Control 4® module that does not require a server to control both 2-way music and 1-way movies and other media via the Mozaex on-screen interface.
To minimize on-site service, Mozaex includes with every Solo 1 a service utility called SurePlay™ that allows the dealer or Mozaex to easily login to the Solo to perform period checkups and update software. In addition, an EasyUp™ utility allows users to easily perform updates to the Mozaex software.
Mozaex also offers no-charge webinar training to its dealers and free standard software updates.
Mozaex products are covered by a limited 3-year warranty and free product lifetime telephone support.
