Axonix Corporation, announces the release of the eagerly anticipated MediaMax HD Entertainment Server. MediaMax HD is being demonstrated at CEDIA Denver, Colorado September 6th – 9th in Booth 488.
Axonix has once again set a new quality standard in home entertainment. With support for both HD DVD and Blu-ray movies you can now enjoy the full potential of your Home Theatre with 1080p High Definition video quality.

MediaMax HD is the first Media Server to play via Cover Art or Metadata both HD DVD and Blu-ray movies. Other Media Servers including those based on variations of Linux and Media Center Edition (“MCE”) OS’s are either unable to play HD movies or they require you to manually browse a textual list of HD movie folders using an unintuitive PC type interface.
MediaMax HD DVD allows instant playback of media stored on its MediaServer including: HD and SD DVD movies, CD, MP3 and WAV music, photos and downloaded movies and music via the new Axonix NetPlay service. Any media can be played simultaneously in any room. MediaMax HD won the “Best Media Control” award at the 2007 Digital Convergence Summit.
