Niveus Media Introduces Sierra Edition

Powered by Intel technology, the eco-friendly and award-winning Sierra Edition Media Server makes its official debut at CES 2008.

Las Vegas, NV — CES 2008 — January 7-10 — The Venetian Suites — Niveus Media, the leading manufacturer of high-performance digital entertainment solutions for the connected home, is pleased to introduce the Sierra Edition Media Server. Based on Windows Vista Home Premium featuring Windows Media Center, Sierra is a scalable and energy efficient Media Server that offers users a simple way to access, store, manage, and distribute digital content throughout the home.

“The increasing demand for a reliable and compact Media Server inspired our engineers to approach the Sierra project differently than anything we’ve ever designed at Niveus,” states Tim Cutting, Niveus CEO and Co-Founder. “Leveraging the latest high performance mobile technology from Intel, we developed exclusive components to manufacture Sierra as a high-performance, high-reliability, and eco-friendly Media Server; an accomplishment we are quite proud of.”

A CES Innovations 2008 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree, Sierra offers the functionality, performance, and reliability for which Niveus is recognized, in a low power consuming (less than 180W) and compact form factor (just over 1U). Boasting uncompromised processing power, Sierra is built with the lower power, energy efficient Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile Processor and Mobile Intel GM965 Express Chipset for breakaway performance, in a compact design.

Boasting cool and quiet performance due to innovative power saving features and an optimized design, the Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile Processor enabled Niveus to create Sierra as an incredibly powerful and responsive system in the most compact form factor ever achieved at Niveus. Additionally, less power consumption translates to less heat dissipation, which ultimately increases the hardware reliability and longevity of Sierra, offering the consumer a cost and energy efficient solution.

“The Sierra Edition Media Server is a terrific example of how Intel technology is enabling the design of cooler, quieter and more compact systems,” said Jeffrey McCrea, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Consumer PC Group. “The combination of the Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processor and Mobile Intel GM965 Express chipset provides consumers with a great performance foundation for viewing, managing and sharing the latest Internet-delivered videos and high-definition entertainment.”

Despite its slender chassis and energy efficient components, Sierra packs an impressive punch, incorporating: powerful Intel processing; an optional HD DVD drive; Seagate DB35 Series hard drives for up to 750GB of storage with video streaming performance, acoustics & reliability; Nvidia’s GeForce Series 8 graphics featuring PureVideo HD technology for high quality video scaling up to and beyond 1080p; and proprietary Niveus technology!

Suitable for rack mount installation or living room placement, Sierra is built with a silent active cooling design for cool and quiet (less than 30db noise) performance anywhere in the home. An optional Wireless N Module provides home owners and installers with additional placement flexibility.

As a digital television compatible device, Sierra is capable of streaming HD content to multiple independent zones and allows for upgrades in storage and compatibility, for even greater performance. At just over 1U in size, the modular Sierra chassis, made of powder coated solid steel and is ideal for rack-mount installation.

Sierra will be available exclusively to volume integrators in Q1 2008. Contact Niveus to learn more about minimum order requirements and this product.
