Niveus Media unveils the Niveus Disc Changer to support full DVD Library functionality on the award-winning Niveus Media Center
Now shipping with Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 with Update Rollup 2, the Niveus Media Center & Niveus Disc Changer enable the new “My DVDs” feature.
Santa Clara, CA, 14 October 2005 — Niveus Media, Inc., manufacturer of media entertainment devices for the high-end audio/video market, is excited to announce its newest digital home solution, the Niveus Disc Changer. With support for over a thousand DVD discs, the Niveus Disc Changer paired with an award-winning Niveus Media Center running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 with Update Rollup 2, enables the “My DVDs” feature within the Windows Media Center interface.
The “My DVDs” feature provides an on-screen movie poster guide for each of the movies stored on the device, allowing users to access their DVD collection through the same familiar interface used to access the rest of their digital media. Users simply click the poster of the movie they choose to view, and the Niveus Disc Changer delivers the content to the Niveus Media Center. Each Niveus Disc Changer can support 200 discs and can be coupled with additional changers to support a DVD library well beyond a thousand discs.
“The Niveus Disc Changer provides an easy to use, drop and play solution for families to organize and playback their entire DVD Library from within the Niveus Media Center,” said Tim Cutting, CEO of Niveus Media. “The Niveus Disc Changer plays an important role in the home’s digital media ecosystem; enabling DVD Library functionality is only the beginning.”
“We’re pleased that Niveus Media continues to take full advantage of the power of the Windows XP Media Center Edition platform,” said Joe Belfiore, general manager of the Windows eHome Division at Microsoft Corp. “Niveus continues its first-to-market tradition with the addition of the Niveus Disc Changer.”
