Bringing CableCARD capabilities to new and existing customers, Niveus Media continues to expand its forward-thinking media center solutions.
Milpitas, CA — December 4, 2006 — A leading designer and manufacturer of digital entertainment solutions based on the Windows Media Center platform, Niveus Media announces the implementation of a CableCARD program for the company’s Niveus Media Centers. Allowing existing customers the opportunity to augment the company’s preceding models, all Niveus’ products will be able to offer the latest Windows Vista operating system with CableCARD capabilities.
Concurrent with Window’s anticipated January 30, 2007 launch of Vista, along with Niveus’ continued commitment to offer the latest in hardware and software, Niveus proudly encourages customers to embrace CableCARD technology within the Windows Media Center application. With unprecedented functionality, CableCARD allows users to view and record premium high definition digital content without the use of a set-top box leveraging powerful DVR functionality including a robust electronic program guide.
“Niveus has been fortunate to showcase CableCARD capabilities and applications on our award-winning media centers, receiving overwhelming feedback on its benefits in this category. By extending this promotion to all of our customers, we hope to maintain our growing reputation as a forward-thinking provider of the digital entertainment experience,” states Tim Cutting, CEO and co-founder of Niveus Media.
With the convergence of computing and audio/video in a constant state of flux, Niveus Media has provided investment protection for its high-performance media centers in its unique chassis and upgrade programs. As Windows Vista supports OCUR (Open Cable Uni-directional Receiver), Niveus’ provides a seamless process as a CableCARD can be easily inserted into an OCUR receiver. Niveus will be amongst the first to provide a Windows-based system capturing advanced content and capabilities by enabling users to retain the interactive EPG (electronic program guide), while also allowing them to view and record HD digital cable content that is stored and accessed on a Windows Vista-based Media Center system.
In addition to offering a CableCARD program for existing customers at the Windows Vista launch, Niveus also plans to ship all new CableCARD-enabled systems at that time.
