Starting in early 2006, customers of the Niveus Disc Changer will be able to access “My DVDs” from any media center zone on the home network

Las Vegas, 3 January 2006 — Niveus Media, Inc., manufacturer of media entertainment devices for the high-end audio/video market, has announced the development of network virtualization technology for the Niveus Disc Changer — Ice Vault 200. The latest of Niveus proprietary add-ons to the Windows XP Media Center Platform, Niveus virtualization technology allows single, or multiple, Niveus Disc Changers to serve up an entire collection of DVD Movies to any zone on the home network powered by a Niveus Media Center.

The new technology developed by Niveus is comprised of virtualization software that allows the Niveus Disc Changer(s) to appear as a network storage device to every media center on the home network. Contents of the DVD movie are transferred, CSS intact, to the particular zone media center where the movie is decoded using the “My DVDs” feature. No copying, or duplication of the DVD takes place; the movie is played from the actual DVD disc. Since no recompression, transcoding, or additional DRM is applied, Niveus virtualization technology maintains the full quality and integrity of the original DVD movie for playback on any ISF-certified Niveus Media Center.

“Consumers demand to access all their digital media from any zone in the home continues to rise. The ability to play back your favorite DVD movies from a central digital library is a natural extension to the Niveus Media Center,” said Tim Cutting, CEO of Niveus Media. “We’re pleased to announce this latest technology resulting from our continued R&D investments in the Microsoft Media Center platform.”

Niveus Media will be demonstrating this new technology to a select group of invite-only attendees at the 2006 International Consumer Electronic Show this week in Las Vegas from Janaury 5 — 8. More information on licensing, additional hardware requirements, and availability of this technology will be available via the Niveus Media website early this year. www.niveusmedia.com
